    Awful user experience

    This scanner can not be shared on the network when connected to a Mac. It has least reliable paper pickup mechanism than any (HP, Xeros, Ricoh, ...) ADF I have seen in my life. The driver (last version for OSX dated June 2009) is awful and routinely crashes. It locks up with as yellow light on power button at times, and nothing, but pulling the power cord, resets the scanner. In the two years I have it I do not remember being able to scan more than 30 pages in a row without a problem.

    Stay away.

    Nice scanner; software doesn't work. Do not buy as Oct 2015

    I just wanted a scanner with a document feeder. This one seemed decent and Apple's listing it implied their approval of this product.

    So I bought it. The scanner is indeed decent. But the software doesn't work. The CD that comes with it (!) installs software that doesn't work on El Capitan. (google "epson el capitan" and you will get right there) you have to download some weird patch that takes about an hour to install (I am re-installing it as I write this and the timeline just changed from 55 minutes to 3 hours and 16 minutes. I am not exaggerating, and I am quoting) And even after I installed the download, the driver didn't work. I uninstalled everything and then just installed the update. That seemed to work and some things scanned successfully. Like I said, not a bad scanner. But then today, a few days later, I came back and the driver wasn't working again. And Epson offers no - and I am mean no - support.

    So don't waste your time, at least not as of October 2015. Apple should not list this product here since it fails so miserably in interacting with their products.

    Epson Workforce GT-1500 broken on El Capitan

    Well, the title says it all. Even after updating with the latest drivers from Epson's web site and a few reboots, the scanner is recognized, but the usual basic scanning software doesn't work, the buttons on the scanner that used to open the scan to PDF etc, do nothing...
