Epson WorkForce ES-400 II Duplex Document Scanner Review at PCMag


The entry-level Epson ES-400 II lacks networking capabilities and mobile device support, but if you’re using it with a single computer, it delivers accurate text scanning at a reasonable speed for a very competitive price.

MSRP $329.99

    • Relatively fast and accurate OCR
    • Robust software bundle
    • Easy to use
    • Low price
    • No Wi-Fi or Ethernet
    • No mobile device support

Epson’s entry-level WorkForce ES-400 II Duplex Desktop Document Scanner ($329.99) is a significant upgrade to the ES-400 reviewed here back in March 2017, with Epson’s most recent scanner software bundle, improved paper handling, and more accurate optical character recognition (OCR). Due primarily to a huge selection of competitors, the ES-400 II falls just short of our Editors’ Choice nod for entry-level sheetfed scanners; the $399.99 Brother ADS-2700W, which has Wi-Fi and a large color touch screen, keeps the crown. But if you don’t need wireless networking or your budget is limited, the ES-400 II is an affordable, capable, easy-to-use sheetfed scanner that’s well suited to personal or small-office use.
