New Epson Portable Document Scanners Weigh in at Less than Three Pounds

Epson WorkForce ES-300W Portable Scanner

Epson America today rolled out two portable document scanners, the  WorkForce ES-200 ($249 MSRP) and WorkForce ES-300W ($299 MRSP). Weighing in at just under three pounds, the compact scanners with both simplex and duplex scanning are rated at up to 25 ppm/50 ipm and include a 20-page auto document feeder (ADF) for batch scanning.
Both document scanners can be powered through AC or USB 3.0 power for working in the office or on the road. The ES-300W can also be powered by battery and offers wireless connectivity for scanning to smartphones, tablets, computers, and online storage accounts. (Users may wirelessly scan to smartphones and tablets – Android/Apple iOS devices – via the Epson Document Scan App. Users may also wirelessly scan to the cloud, PCs, and Macs with Epson Document Capture software installed on the connected Windows PC or Mac.)

Heather Johnston, product manager for Epson America, also states that the scanners provide the fastest scan speeds in their class (compared to other portable consumer document scanners with an ADF, using the AC adapter and power cable, priced under $300 MSRP in the United States and Canada as of June 2016).

The ES-200 and ES-300W include TWAIN scan drivers for “integration with virtually any document management software, enabling businesses to save time and money by directly scanning files into their existing workflow.” Both models also feature Epson Image Processing technology for text and image adjustments such as automatic crop, and blank page and background removal. Both scanners are equipped with a software package that includes Epson Document Capture, ABBYY FineReader and NewSoft Presto! BizCard. The optical character recognition (OCR) software can be used to either create searchable PDFs or editable files with Word and Excel.

The Epson WorkForce ES-200  and WorkForce ES-300W wireless portable duplex document scanners are now available online and at major computer, office, and electronic superstores and online at www.epson.com. Both scanners feature a one-year limited warranty, and optional extended service plans featuring next business-day exchange programs.
