Epson DS-30 Driver, Scanner, Software Download. The WorkForce DS-30 marks the Epson’s first foray into the still portable scanner market. Does the DS-30 have what it takes to shake up the portable scanner market?

Epson’s $179 WorkForce DS-30 is the most attractive mobile scanner we’ve reviewed. The top of the scanner has a glossy black textured coating that gives the unit some character in a sea of look-alikes. At top center is a white stenciled Epson logo, and to the right of that is a black rubberized scan button paired with a thin green indicator light. From the document feeder down, the scanner loses its textured finish and instead takes on a matte black coating. The far right side of the DS-30 is where you’ll find its USB 2.0 port.

With a footprint of 10.9 x 2.0 x 1.5 inches, the Epson WorkForce DS-30 is a hair larger than both Neat’s NeatReceipts scanner (10.8 x 1.6 x 1.3 inches) and Plustek’s MobileOffice S410 (10.8 x 1.9 x 1.3 inches). Despite that, the 11.8-ounce Epson weighs less than the 13.9-ounce Plustek MobileOffice S410 and just 0.2 ounces more than Neat’s NeatReceipts NM-1000 scanner. We were easily able to slide the Epson into our messenger bag with a 14-inch notebook and had room to spare.

Setup and ease of use

Installing the DS-30 took about 10 minutes, owing to its large software suite. The menus were clean and easy to read, but we were bothered by the fact that the software didn’t prompt us to connect the scanner when the installation was complete.

In addition to the basic Epson Scan scanner software, the WorkForce DS-30 comes with Document Capture Pro, Abbyy’s FineReader and NewSoft’s Presto! BizCard 5. Mac users also get access to NewSoft’s PageManager software.

Performance

The WorkForce DS-30 has a maximum scan area of 8.5 x 14 inches and a maximum scanning resolution of 600 dpi. In our testing, the DS-30 scanned an 8.5 x 11-inch document in an average 19.5 seconds. That’s faster than Neat’s NeatReceipts NM-1000’s 24.4-second average, but slower than the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100’s speedy 9.4 seconds.

The DS-30 was the second slowest in our roundup to scan a black-and-white business card, taking an average of 9.3 seconds. The NeatReceipts NM-1000 finished the same scan in 6.9 seconds, while the MobileOffice S410 did it in just 2.9 seconds.

The DS-30 was also slow to scan a 8.5 x 11-inch color photo at 600 dpi, taking 44.9 seconds. The NeatReceipts NM-1000 was just a bit faster, taking 35.9 seconds to scan the photo. It took the ScanSnap S1100 just 28.9 seconds to scan the same photo.
