When it comes to desktop scanners in the legal marketplace, the perennial favorite has been the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500. Finding a scanner that has the speed, features, software and durability of the ScanSnap S1500 has been a goal long sought by others but not achieved. Nevertheless, that may be about to change: Epson recently provided Nerino Petro, Jr with its WorkForce Pro GT-S50 desktop duplex color sheet-fed scanner to review. Available for as low as $330 online based on its written specifications, it is faster and has a larger automatic document feeder than the ScanSnap. Additionally, the GT-S50 is industry-standard compliant with both TWAINand ISIS drivers, which means that the GT-S50 can work with TWAIN- or ISIS-compliant software such as PaperPort, OmniPage, Acrobat and more.
