I purchased this scanner with very few requirements: 1) It must scan Legal (8.5x11) documents 2) It must have a small footprint (preferably fit into a drawer when not in use) 3) It must work without a lot of hassle. It meets the first two requirements wonderfully. It is not entirely hassle free, but it gets the job done. The biggest hassle is learning how to feed paper so that they are fed in immediately and don't skew as the feed through. That sounds simple, but there is a real art to getting the scanner to grab your document as it starts its scan. I found that placing a small book in front of the scanner (to bring the paper up to the height of the feed slot) helps, as does applying enough pressure to the trailing edge of the document to give the paper a little bulge - pressing it gently into the feed slot. There are two tiny design modifications that would make this scanner much better: 1) The upper edge of the feed-in slot should be sloped. As it is (square edged) paper tends to catch as you try to feed it in. A sloped top edge would guide the paper easier. 2) The bottom edge of the out-feed area should slope down, so paper naturally slides away from the scanner as it is ejected from the scanner. As it is, the flat shelf on the out-feed area is just enough to hold the trailing edge of a page, which gets in the way of the next page to feed through the scanner.

Lack of manual left desires. I have yet to scan any documents as files are in different venues and action confirmation requires searching and retracing. Start up disc failed to initiate and web site started installation which then locked into a 99% mode. A shut down and reinstalltion seems to be working. Not to be a SIGN and DRIVE Epson Scanner I had which was obsoleted and not supported by Epson on Windows 10. So far unit looks nice let you no how scan looks when complete.

It works

By 

from Vacaville, CA

Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-40 Wireless Portable Color Scanner, 600 x 600 dpi:

Somewhat clunky software on a Mac. Tricky to name files and difficult to change folders to save to. I had to install the software twice before it seemed stable. Drop dead easy to connect and print from my iPad.

Handy scanner

By 

from Hershey, PA

Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-40 Wireless Portable Color Scanner, 600 x 600 dpi:

This scanner works well. It does single sheets, or you can select to do multiple sheets and make it into one document without having to select and merge them when finished. Also handy having the option to direct connect or use the local wi-fi from the scanner to a laptop. Scans at a reasonable rate with nice quality.

The Epson WorkForce DS-40 Color Portable Scanner is not only compact, easy to use, and reliable, but the picture quality is great too!

Absolutely Awesome

By 

from Walker, Louisiana

Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-40 Wireless Portable Color Scanner, 600 x 600 dpi:

This scanner is Absolutely Awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It works great for me. I am a Notary Public. I like to scan all of the documents, Vehicle Title, etc. so that I can keep a record of them on my computer. Quite often clients come back to me requesting a copy of a document that they have lost. It also allowed me to throw my copy machine out. I simply scan a document and print it. If I do not need to keep it, I delete it from my computer.

Terrible

By 

from Philadelphia

Comments about Epson WorkForce DS-40 Wireless Portable Color Scanner, 600 x 600 dpi:

This printer is terrible. It will not feed anything heavier than the most typical printer paper, its nozzles constantly need cleaning to print even mildly legibly. The ink cartridges seem cheaper than competitors, but they quickly run out of ink. Overall, this printer is a huge hassle, prints poorly, and does not save you money.
