1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sleek look, and fairly compact to save desk space....oh and USB 3.0 but that's about all it's got going for it.

Cons: - This unit has to be extremely close to a WAP to get anything more than a weak signal.
- Software is buggy in Windows 8 environment, either x86 or x64, installs fine but won't run after installation, not practical for RDS or network-only scanning.
- No web interface or telnet options for advanced setup, forcing the user to configure via USB, not always practical in a BUSINESS environment or thin clients using pass through (there are printers that cost less than $100 that even have this option).
- For a device that costs over $400, I would expect an Ethernet option on top of USB 3.0 and Wifi.

Other Thoughts: If you buy this product, whatever you do, don't lose the box. I did, and now I'm stuck with it. If you're a home user running Windows 7 (can't speak for Mac OS) and have USB 3.0 ports on your computer, go for it.

4 out of 5 eggsSuperior Performance

Pros: Very Fast
Wi-Fi
Great Support
Works well on Mac OS X
Free Adobe Acrobat Standard
Frequent Software Updates

Cons: Kinda Expensive
Most of the extra software is PC only (which sucks)
I wish it didn't have an external power brick.

3 out of 5 eggsAMAZING but drivers can be weird

Pros: Great performance. It really is the best type of device that does this I've owned.

I don't have anything negative to say about performance and utility.

Cons: BIG CON-- It had such high reviews when I purchased it I expected this thing to be indestructible.

After a few months though, I couldn't get WINDOWS 7 ULT to recognize the ScanSNAP (aka it will NOT function at all).

I will try to hook up to a different computer , but I've had this issue several times and because I eventually can fix with the disc from manufacturer, I am giving FUJITSU and other reviews the benefit of the doubt on this thing.

TEXT RECOGNITION IS WONDERFUL, and you might find yourself pleased with its bundled software, although I prefer to manage my own files without excessive software and found it at times a bit annoying to have to click through stuff.

I'd really ask around though, this thing is awesome, and I think most people will be happy. It's great if you don't have the above issues and FUJITSU has good videos which do accurately give you advanced notice and a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Other Thoughts: Its awesome as long as you don't run into installation problems. I still would buy again despite not having the best of luck with device recognition.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Scanner!

Pros: Easy set up, nice design, quick and smart configuration. Works with many different size documents. CardMinder software organizes business cards easily. Closes nicely for minimal storage. Light and easy to carry if needed.

Cons: Black design gets white paper dust all over from our scanning project. Inside gets dusty too, just natural though. Not too much negative to say about the scanner.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT COMPATIBLE WITH SERVER 2008R2

Pros: The scanner is fast

Cons: The bundle software does not support Windows Server 2008/2880R2. Fujitsu blocks the installation on the OS.

Other Thoughts: Don't spend extra money to get a bundle if you are planning to use it on the server OS.

4 out of 5 eggsI love this scanner

Pros: 1) Scans fast (new computer, usb 3.0 connection)
2) Bundled software works well (I mainly have been just "scanning to file" with ScanSnap manager)
3) 1 jam out of 1,000 pages
4) Can scan very small papers (receipts, ect) with other sizes in the same batch without a hiccup.

PDF's come out sharp and clear even when source is wrinkled. Page folds do show up, but it has to be pretty deep creasing

Cons: Auto detection of color sometimes will scan in B&W when I would pick grey scale to deal with finely dithered monochrome documents.
Auto detection of page orientation gets it right most of the time .. seems to not like a page of very small text.

Other Thoughts: This scanner is replacing a old but much more expensive scanner (B&H Sidekick 1200) and it seems to have more functionality and just as speedy and reliable.
For the price I am very happy with this product and would recommend it over the scanning function of a AIO printer hands down, as the time it saved verses the price was worth it to me.

5 out of 5 eggsScanSnap iX500

Pros: Fast, easy way to digitize paper. Takes up very little space on the desk compared with my previous flatbed scanner and is SO much faster to use. The software bundle all works together well. It is nice to be able to edit my old .pdf files to get rid of blank pages.

Cons: The software bundle installs as 4-5 separate programs rather than one multi-capable one but they all work just fine so no real problem.

Other Thoughts: I have been using a flatbed scanner for years and while it does a good job it is time consuming to sit next to it and feed one sheet at a time, turning it over when necessary. The auto doc. feeder on this works well, even with different sized paper. Wish I had this after I closed my business and had to dispose of reams of old documents.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than others

Pros: I can't tell you how many other scanners in its class that I have deployed that can't handle a large stack of papers without passing more than one and jamming. This thing works perfect. Deployed in a high volume scanning environment and it got the job done without a single problem. Software is stable and easy to use.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Scanner

Pros: latest FW/SW allows WiFi connectivity to PC
fast
duplex scanning
good number of pages per scan

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I have found this to be an excellent scanner and I have not had any major issues with it so far. I hit a few bumps when setting up the WiFi connectivity, but wasn't anything to really complain about. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I haven't tried using any of the additional software other than Adobe, which having a full version of is a nice bonus.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is an excellent scanner. It scans both sides of the sheet as it is fed through. It has not snagged on any previously staples pages like other scanners that I have used. The images are excellent and have not had any lines or other artifacts on them.

The software included with the scanner is easy to use. It has lots of options that I have yet to have used.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Excellent scanner for the price.
