Epson DS-530 II Color Duplex Document Scanner Review

THE BOTTOM LINE

The Epson DS-530 II sheet-fed document scanner scans well and at a reasonable clip, but its price is a little steep given its shortage of features.

MSRP $399.00

PROS
    • Highly accurate OCR
    • Capable software
CONS
    • A little slower than competing models
    • Lacks wireless or mobile options
    • No business-card archiving software

Near the lower end of Epson’s packed stable of business-ready document scanners is the DS-530 II Color Duplex Document Scanner ($399), a replacement for 2016’s DS-530. The hardware is about the same—including the limited connectivity options—but the optical character recognition (OCR) accuracy is much improved, as are the bundled utilities. The DS-530 II is a capable little scanner, but our current entry-level Editors’ Choice pick, the Brother ADS-2700W, is more robust in several ways, and will be a better buy for most shoppers.
