Epson, a world leader in digital imaging and print solutions, has once again received top honors as it has been awarded Buyers Laboratory’s (BLI) 2014 Winter “Pick” award for “Outstanding A4 Mid-Size Workgroup Scanner.” Through a series of extensive product evaluations conducted by BLI, the Epson Workforce DS-510 scanner consistently outpaced the competition, earning better than average results for the majority of performance categories tested. The unit’s overall performance and “Highly Recommended” status helped it to win “Pick” recognition for the mid-size workgroup category.
“Our customers depend on us to provide reliability and high quality imaging, which is why we continue to push our innovations to provide only the very best,” says Koichi Endo, Managing Director of Epson Southeast Asia. “To be recognised by such a prestigious industry influencer truly underscores Epson’s commitment to innovation and dedications towards helping companies achieve their business goals.”
Aside from its faster than average speeds and a higher than average efficiency rate when measuring the unit’s hardware throughput, the WorkForce DS-510 has also been shown to maintain its hardware speeds even when increasing the resolution or changing image processing settings. The DS-510’s Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) handles a wider than average range of paper weights, while the additional features include the ability to scan to various cloud destinations, smaller than average file sizes in colour mode and a wider than average resolution range. With the bundled Epson Document Capture Pro Software, users can customize up to 30 profiles for frequently used scan operations.
“In a highly contested category, the Epson WorkForce DS-510 was able to go above and beyond typical workgroup scanners by offering superior functionality and an intuitive design all for an affordable total cost of ownership,” said Lisa Reider, BLI’s senior product editor for scanners. In their published award article, BLI highly recommended the Epson WorkForce DS-510 for workgroups and departments looking for an affordable and robust scanner able to process up to 3,000 sheets a day.
