Epson scanners gain recognition with seven DataMaster Lab Awards – from ‘Easiest to use’ to ‘Best image quality’

Epson had been awarded seven DataMaster Lab 2022 Awards following rigorous testing by the renowned independent testing house, DataMaster Lab, paying testament to Epson’s product quality and usability. These awards come as document digitisation gains momentum, supporting remote and hybrid work environments and improving workflow and document security.

Assessed for superiority in areas including ‘Best image quality’, ‘Easiest to use’ and ‘Best user experience’, Epson product demonstrate that they deliver against both user and business needs.

The winning scanners are as follows:

  • Epson DS-360W                Best image quality / file size ratio
  • Epson DS-730N                 Best image quality / file size ratio
  • Epson DS-32000               Best image quality / file size ratio
  • Epson DS-30000               Best image quality / file size ratio
  • Epson DS-730N                 Best User Experience
  • Epson DS-32000               Easiest-to-use scanner
  • Epson DS-30000               Easiest-to-use scanner


Wiebke Bird, Epson Europe, says: “We’re thrilled that our products have been recognised by such a respected and rigorous testing house, verifying the business value these units offer and their simplicity of use within the workflow.”

When looking at image quality, Edward Bilson, DataMaster, says: “Most manufacturers of imaging equipment provide the means to compress files, which can reduce their size -and the cost to store them -by a factor of ten or more.  However, the quality of the images can often be lost in the quest to make files as small as possible. The winners of this award are scanners that make small pdf files which will be cheap to store on the cloud while still guaranteeing the value of their contents.”

When asked about the winners of ‘Best user experience’, Bilson says: “The scanners that have won this award have a wide and intuitive range of features and functions, and also handle originals very well -compared to competing machines in the same tests in DataMaster Lab's independent laboratory.  Users of these winning machines will be more productive!”
