THE BOTTOM LINE

The Epson DS-730N is a capable midrange sheetfed document scanner that scans well for its price but doesn’t stand out from the crowd.

MSRP $549.00

PROS
    • Spacious 100-sheet ADF
    • Low price
    • Three-year warranty
CONS
    • Lacks Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity options
    • Relatively low daily duty cycle

Epson’s $549 DS-730N Network Color Document Scanner is a capable document scanner for busy small-to-midsize offices. It’s reasonably fast and reasonably accurate, and its three-year warranty makes its low price an even better value—but it doesn’t quite stand up to the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1600 ($495), our Editors’ Choice for small-office scanners, which has Wi-Fi, impressive OCR accuracy, a higher duty cycle rating, and a touch-screen control panel. There’s nothing wrong with the DS-730N, but with such fierce competition, there are few situations where we’d recommend it over its peers.
