Epson was one of the first companies to use USB for scanning purposes, and it is a feature of its multi-function office printers that always impresses.
But, the process of copying documents isn’t identical to creating a document image. For this specific task, Epson has an extensive selection of scanners specifically designed for this purpose that are available Under the WorkForce label.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the WorkForce D790WN, a tiny document scanner that comes with advanced features specifically designed to ease workflows to help with imaging.
It’s expensive; however, can the stunning Epson quality and design justify the cost?
Documents can be single-sided or double-sided; however, the scanner requires that the operator specifically specify this and isn’t automatically detected. Paper that weighs between 27 to 413 grams per square millimeter can be processed, and it’s possible to use plastic cards.
The input capacity of 100 sheets is dependent on what size you have in your stocks. However, you’ll be able to supply the necessary quantity of pages that weigh 80g/m2 and are ready to scan.
The quoted duty cycle is quite impressive, with 7000 pages per day. Considering the amount of scanning, there is an alternate roller system available on shelves. Based on 45 pages per second for color and monochrome scans, at 300dpi, 7000 pages is the equivalent of about 155 minutes of total scan time. However, these figures don’t consider delays when organizing and loading paper and after which the scans are removed, or the delay caused by blocked or not working properly.
Its speed for scanning 45 frames per minute may not be the fastest, but it’s slower than the comparable Canon DR-M260, Fujitsu 7160, and Raven Pro Max models. But it’s significantly more efficient than scanners, cheaper, and comes from these brands.
The only flaw we observed in the layout and design of the DS-790WN is the USB Type-A port, which can transfer data directly onto external storage devices. It’s just behind, between the LAN port and the USB Type B port. This is why it’s not easily reachable. This port is supposed to be at the front of the device; however, there was a reason why the Epson engineers did not consider the possibility of placing it in front of the machine.
As we’ve observed, it boils down to the amount of stapled pages that are accidentally pushed through and how careful the workers are in eliminating jams without causing harm to the internal routes.
If you’re planning to invest in this type of equipment, having a second to think about it can help you ensure that this equipment is in use for a long time.
To be more precise, if the cost wasn’t a concern for you, this is one of the best desktop scanners we’ve seen, with remarkable flexibility and all the features that every workflow for document imaging needs.
If you’re seeking the raw speed of scanning, other brands could be quicker, but the Epson DS-790WN is hard to compete with in terms of overall hardware and software.
