Reasonably Fast and Accurate Scans with Epson’s DS-1630 Flatbed Color Document Scanner


The Epson DS-1630 Flatbed Color Document Scanner ($299.99) ($259.99 at Amazon) is a low-volume document scanner designed for small and home-based offices. It combines the versatility of a flatbed and a sheet-feed scanner with an automatic document feeder (ADF), and supports automatic duplex scanning. But unlike many competing models, including the same-priced HP ScanJet Pro 2500 f1 Flatbed Scanner ($194.30 at Amazon) and the more expensive Editors’ Choice Canon imageFormula DR-2020U (Check on Amazon at Amazon), the DS-1630 has only one sensor, making it slow at scanning two-sided pages. Even so, it’s buoyed by its generous software bundle and competitively accurate optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities.
