The scanner is VERY easy to hook up and install. Software is intuitive. The specs say 27ppm B&W, 11ppm color. Now let me give you the truth. I did not measure the B&W throughput, but I did the color. At 300dpi, 24bit color, pdf it is one page every 45 seconds. I thought there may be a problem with the machine, and called the help line. They were very responsive, but informed me that indeed, the scanner under "certain" circumstances will only produce the speed above.

We also have a Canon all in one machine that scans - the scans are GREAT! But it is slow. When we compared the two side by side at 300ppi, the Epson was VERY fuzzy. I would expect there would be issues with 6pt text - but I never tested this.
We just obtained the Kodak i2400. I was pleasantly surprised. See my review on that.
