I frequently have to scan full document packages to a lender or escrow company upon completion of a signing assignment¬† and this scanner makes it a breeze!


Let me introduce you to the Epson ES-500W scanner. This little powerhouse has been a game-changer in my business, and I’m excited to share my personal review with you.

First off, let’s talk about the sleek design. The document feeder folds down, and the paper tray slides in when not in use allowing for a compact design to minimize the space needed on your desktop.

Here are a few of the key features that make the Epson ES 500W a great choice of scanner:

  • For convenience you can connect this either via Wi-Fi or USB, set up is quick and easy!
  • Scans single or double-sided, no need to flip the pages!
  • Scans at 35 pages per minute for letter size – this will vary depending on the resolution you set.
  • Resolution can be set up to 1200 dpi based on your document/image needs and you can select color or black & white.
  • The document feeder accepts paper up to 8.5 in wide and of any length. This is super convenient for me as I frequently scan files that include a mix of letter and legal-size papers, it automatically detects and scans to the appropriate size.
  • The automatic document feeder holds up to 50 pages, for bigger files, it is simple to just add the next stack of paper and keep scanning.

One of the best things about the Epson ES 500W is its durability. It comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty. This thing is built to last, and it’s made from high-quality materials that can withstand even the busiest of offices. I’ve had mine for about 3 years, and it still looks and works like new. And because it’s so durable, I don’t have to worry about replacing it anytime soon – which is great news for my wallet!
