No Computer Necessary
The Epson ES-580W is an excellent, easy to use A4 scanner. The ES-580W is a sizeable desktop scanner that has many useful attributes for the user. A stand out feature is the ability to scan wirelessly, straight to a network, without the need for a personal computer. The large touchscreen (10.9 cm) and wifi connectivity make it easy to save your documents in the correct location. Customisable presets scan straight to cloud folders, email addresses, or external hard drives. Should you wish to scan using your Mac or PC, this is possible with Epson ScanSmart software.
