Low price for a flatbed document scanner. Scans directly to searchable PDF files. Cons Automatic document feeder ADF scans one side of the page only.

Manual duplex feature is hidden and somewhat cumbersome. Bottom Line The Epson WorkForce GT is a bit slow, but it's affordable enough to make it an attractive choice if your small office needs a document scanner that includes a flatbed. As the name implies, this scanner is office-centric rather than photocentric, and it's aimed at small offices rather than any of Epson's usual Epson WorkForce GT-1500 ISIS Scanner markets: Don't think that Epson is fumbling around in unknown territory, however.

Epson WorkForce GT-1500 ISIS Scanner The GT is a well-designed package that's potentially attractive to anyone who needs a desktop document scanner for a small or home office. Most document scanners are strictly sheet-fed, simply because most documents consist of stacks of individual sheets of paper. The GT, however, includes both a page automatic document feeder ADF and a letter-size flatbed. The flatbed can be useful if you need to scan book or magazine pages or other originals that won't go through a sheet-feeder. Setting up the scanner is straightforward.

It measures a compact 4. To set up the GT, simply run the automated installation routine from disc, plug in the power cord and a USB cable, and let Windows recognize the scanner. For the Mac, the disc Epson WorkForce GT-1500 ISIS Scanner includes a Twain driver and OCR software, but no document management program.

You can start a scan from a program, from Epson's scan utility, or from one of the four scan buttons on the front panel. The copy button brings up a copy utility on the PC; the PDF button scans to your choice of image PDF or searchable PDF format; and the e-mail button creates a new message using your PC's e-mail program, adding the scanned document as an attachment. There's also a generic scan button that brings up the Epson scan utility, so you can scan to a Epson WorkForce GT-1500 ISIS Scanner.


The GT's optical scan resolution is 1, pixels per inch ppi for scanning from the flatbed, but the software limits the scanner to ppi for scanning from the ADF. This is a bit unusual, but ppi is typical for document scanners and is more than enough resolution for scanning documents.

It's even more than enough for scanning photos, unless you plan to enlarge them significantly. I should also mention that although you can use the GT flatbed for photos, the scanner doesn't come with a photo editor. So, by definition, the package of hardware plus software as sold by Epson Epson WorkForce GT-1500 ISIS Scanner really meant for photo scanning. That said, there's nothing to stop you from buying a photo-editing program separately.

It's also worth noting that Epson WorkForce GT-1500 ISIS Scanner Twain driver includes a Professional mode with settings for features like color balance, which are really more appropriate for scanning photos than documents. Because the scanner doesn't come with its own photo-editing software, and the software itself affects the suitability for scanning photos, I didn't test or rate the GT for photos. I scanned two photos to disc, however, and opened them in Photoshop, just to get a sense of the Epson WorkForce GT-1500 ISIS Scanner quality. In both cases, colors were a little washed out. For document scanning, the GT is rated at 20 pages per minute ppm at ppi in black-and-white mode. On my tests, scanning our standard page text document using the scanner's default ppi setting, I clocked it at only 9.


In comparison, the Canon DRC scanned the same document at a slightly faster As with most document scanners, if you scan and save directly to a searchable PDF format, the GT adds a significant amount of time for recognizing the text. In this case, the OCR step added a little over a minute, for a total of 3: Epson WorkForce GT-1500 ISIS Scanner in mind, however, that Canon's scan software is unusual in being able to OCR a file in little to no time.
