    Epson GT-1500 not entirely Mac friendly

    • Written by from Jamestown

    The software for the Mac does not include a document management program. It only includes that for Windows. Scanning your documents is one thing. Being able to manage them after that is another.

    Fabulous batch scanner

    • Written by from Pottstown

    I got this scanner for the sheet feed capability. At 150dpi this scanner will fly through stacks of paperwork, and 150 is fine for regular documents. Scanning to PDF is a great feature, the software also gives you the option of appending to the current PDF with another scan set. It will break scans into PDFs of user specified size too. With the sheet feed, you can scan legal size also. The document table works very well too, with scan resolutions way past anything I'll ever need. My only complaint would be that the software though functional, is a bit ugly.

    Awful user experience

    • Written by from Western Springs

    This scanner can not be shared on the network when connected to a Mac. It has least reliable paper pickup mechanism than any (HP, Xeros, Ricoh, ...) ADF I have seen in my life. The driver (last version for OSX dated June 2009) is awful and routinely crashes. It locks up with as yellow light on power button at times, and nothing, but pulling the power cord, resets the scanner. In the two years I have it I do not remember being able to scan more than 30 pages in a row without a problem.

    Stay away.

    Epson- Still the best

    • Written by from jacksonville

    I love this scanner. I'm using it on my iMac in OS X Mavericks and in my Windows 8.1 virtual machine. It's fast, it's accurate, full featured, and does the type of quality work expected from Epson. The quick buttons work in mac, albeit not as direct as in windows. I can use the one touch scanner buttons to bring up the Epson dialog in mac, and send the documents to pdf, but you have to set up the preferences ahead of time or on the fly. There are new drivers out there for Mavericks, so anybody having issues should grab them.
