    If you are looking for a high quality portable scanner, nothing beats Epson WorkForce DS-30. As a portable scanner, this device is not only useful but very attractive and sleek to look as well. The glossy black texture scanner top with the Epson logo stenciled on it gives a truly classy look to a product that can give competition a run.

     

    Amongst the striking features of the Epson WorkForce DS-30 is the smart button in rubber that is pressed for scanning. Every time the button is pressed the green light will indicate that scanning process has commenced. The USB 2.0 port is located on the far side of the device. The black matte coating gives the scanner a sophisticated look. The Epson WorkForce DS-30 has a footprint of 10.9 x 2.0 x 1.5 inches. This is slightly more than the NeatReceipts scanner  and Plustek's MobileOffice S410. What sets this device apart is that you can easily slip it into your laptop bag and carry it along with you wherever you go. Installing the scanner is very simple and easy, too. Once you insert the installation CD you will be guided through every step of the installation process with clear instructions.

     

    This Epson scanner has many other beneficial features too. It comes with Document Capture Pro, Abbyy's FineReader and NewSoft's Presto! BizCard 5. There are good news for Mac users, as well. They can get access to NewSoft's PageManager software with the Epson WorkForce DS-30. The best part about this scanner is its price. You could not get a better value for money product, with this device sitting very comfortable at a midrange price – very cost effective when you put all of its features in perspective. It also comes with a unique option that lets you send your scanned files through cloud computing to desired locations. The Epson Scan utility and Epson Document Capture Pro present here will allow you to save your files in JPG, image PDF, and many other formats with ease and compatibility. The manual feed scanning speed will depend on how quickly you can manually feed in the paper. The actual scan takes about 15 seconds per page at 300 pixels per inch.

     

    The Epson WorkForce DS-30 can read text in font size as low as 6 points in Arial or New Times Roman completely error free. This is why this device is considered to be the best for scanning business cards or visiting cards and security documents. If you are looking for a good manual feed scanner which is portable as well, nothing quite beats this device. The WorkForce DS-30 also comes with a one year limited warranty which is valid in Canada and the United States of America. This stylish and cost effective portable scanner is possibly the best buy for you at the offered price. Its features, quality, speed and easy connectivity are unmatched by other models in the same category.
