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.

I still cannot connect to wifi. In order to networking DPS must be enabled on my router ATT Uverse 2Wire. There's no DPS setting on the router so then there's a string of directions to set It wants a router with dps which my 2wire ATT doesn't have. Having to add To DPS is beyond me. The directions are way too complicated. Even the USB setup directions were hard to follow. I've worked with computers since 1986 (remember the IBM PC) and am able to solve most problems. There are many different setups to be done. Some didn't run. Now USB is working but the Scan from Scanner button needs Document Capture installed and it doesn't even load.

Works like a charm everytime

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

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

I bought my Epson Workforce DS-40 about six weeks ago. One has to read the instructions carefully and review what other users had to say and what they learned about using this particular product. It has a high learning curve to get the maximum use. There are a number of nuances which may have a negative impact on different users. The learning curve is not so bad that it can't be conquered. It's learning to fly an airplane, but much safer. My advice to users that have little or no experience using scanners. 1. Read the instructions on using the product. 2. Use the product. 3. Practice. 4. Read the instructions on using the desired application software. 5. Practice using a single application to gain confidence. 6. If you run into a problem. 7. Try again and don't give up. 8. Slowly add an additional application. 9. There are all sorts of YOUTUBE videos out there; watch them even if they are for different portable scanners. 10. Learn from your and other people's mistakes. 11. Patience and practice makes perfect!

Nice Size for Traveling

By 

from Bloomington, MN, United States

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

This is an okay scanner for traveling although I probably would not buy it again. The paper tends to pull to one side and the image scanned does not present a clear, good quality scan. To me, that is important when scanning important documents back to colleagues at work (especially for legal documents that need to be mailed to government agencies). Also long dark streaks appear on most of the pages and when you need to alter mistakes in a document by cutting and pasting material, those areas that are pasted in are clearly visible on your scanned copies.

Works very well

By 

from Stafford, VA, United States

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

Bought this scanner to ease the burden of scanning documentation for my incomes taxes. Very convenient, as I do not have to lift the flatbed cover on my all in one. But I have two gripes: 1) When I installed the software for the DS-40, somehow the scanner in the all in one is locked out & no longer available. 2) It will only scan to PDF. At times I need a JPG scan, but with the all in one locked out, that is no longer an option.

Although it only scans one page at a time it is fast. I am a mobile notary and at times required to fax documents immediately after notarization. This scanner accommodates letter and legal size. I scan to a pdf then send eFax. A must for mobile notary work

DS-40, Not with a MacBook Air you don't

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

If you have a MacBook Air, be ready for a difficult experience. I am still not set up so I can not review the device, only the setup process, it stinks. If I had known the hassle I was to experience, I would have opted for another device, instead.
