4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Smooth, quality scanning

Cons: A bit finicky for anything not a normal sheet of paper. Still worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Device

Pros: Fast. Duplex scans both sides simultaneously. Works great.

Cons: I wish the software was a bit better. When going through a pile of bills, it would be nice for the software to remain on the screen to easily switch modes between simplex and duplex scanning.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to better manage my bill filing (i.e. stop letting them pile up on the floor rather than filing). I tried with my epson all in one, but it didn't do duplex scanning and there was no easy way to interleave scans, so I bought this ix500.

It is an amazing product, and I love it. After I figured out how to spend a couple of seconds straightening the edges of folded bills, I haven't had a single issue.

The device is very fast (I'm using USB3, but it has wireless as well), and scans both sides of the document simultaneously.

5 out of 5 eggsTop Notch

Pros: Every feature highlighted in its description works great, including WiFi connectivity, paper handling and scan quality.

Cons: Haven't found any.

Other Thoughts: This is a great product. I'm especially impressed by the device's paper handling and scan quality. So many uses from digitizing paper to reducing clutter, moving towards paperless office and scanning photos. I probably could've done well with the S1300i but no regrets here!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Great scanners for the office or home. Fast, flexible and almost never jams. it can even work as photo scanner if you need to make a quick slideshow and have stacks of old photos.

Cons: No twain compatibility. as a company that has purchased so many of these, this is risky on our part. if someone decides to adopt an imaging system...we're back to purchasing a different scanner.

Other Thoughts: We've rolled out probably 5 of these and about 20 of the s1500's. never one single problem with any of them in just over two years. If you ever have jamming issues, read the directions. Staggering the pages is required by even very high end scanners.

5 out of 5 eggsWow!!

Pros: Fast scanning. NO jamming, even with varied sized documents. Excellent software package, but be aware that Mac users can't use some of the software. Don't buy the "bundle" which has software that works only with Windows computers.

Cons: Expensive (but worth it).

Other Thoughts: Much better than a Brother ASD-1500W that I had to return for refund. Fujitsu really nailed everything right with this ScanSnap document scanner.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's fast, help me reduce paperwork by a lot.
The pdf search feature is great, everything i need with a few keyword.

Cons: It's not really stand alone system, you will still need a computer to save everything. No direct cold storage.
The software that comes with it is not very user friendly, felt like it's something from windows 98 ear. -1 star for sw.

1 out of 5 eggsFour steps backward

Pros: The previous version of this product was terrific.

When it works correctly, it is fast..

Cons: The updated version is terrible: it regular crumples receipts. Their proposed solution is inane: use the sheet feeder? Why would someone purchase a document scanner for its ability to scan multiple documents quickly, and then use a sheet feeder?

So I have to scour the web in search of something that works.

Sigh. $500 down the tubes.

3 out of 5 eggsSuperior Scanner with some flaws

Pros: Fast reliable scanning.
Does not jam and has few misfeeds.
Software is good for setting Keywords on the PDF, which makes searching (Windows search) much easier.
Outstanding hardware
One button operation
Compact when folded

Cons: USB 3.0 ports are finicky. Only works with certain motherboards/ports (Only Intel, AMD and one other manufacturer is supported,). You can use USB 2.0 in this case, so not a big deal, but the caveat should have been mentioned in the troubleshooting guide.
I spent 4 hours trying to get the scanner to work, following their troubleshooting guide, until I found an obscure blurb on the Fujitsu website about USB 3.0 ports not being recognized.

Other than that, it does not come with TWAIN drivers, so cannot scan directly from most applications. There are work-arounds (scan to a folder, etc.) but you lose some flexibility.

Other Thoughts: Included Software is good for the job - handles PDF Keywords well - Easy to assign Keywords and then file the document to a folder based on the Keyword.
Could have had multiple hardware buttons that could have been mapped to different settings/profiles. Currently, you have to go to the system tray, find the manager application icon, switch profiles, and then scan.
An improvement to the software should allow for "Separator Sheets" or Barcoded sheets to be included between multiple documents in a batch, and the software could automatically split the document when it finds the separator. This would allow easy batch scanning.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Scanner

Pros: I have three, now. Absolutely no problems. Easy set up. Easy to learn to use. Good speed. Good scan quality. Lots of options if you want to dig deeper. Use them in a business environment so they get lots of use.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall great scanner but not for photos

Pros: Fast, easy, scans direct to Evernote
Great for going paperless

Cons: I was really expecting to be able to file documents and photos. I didn't expect professional quality on the photos, but acceptable. It turns out all my photos come out too RED. I called tech support and they were very helpful and did have some suggestions to try, but said that this scanner is really not meant for photos. They say the red comes from the gloss on the photos and the bending through the scanner. Suggestions didn't help.

Other Thoughts: I like this scanner a lot, but was really hoping it would take care of all my needs. I'll still enjoy it for documents, but I would have spent more (and this wasn't cheap) to have one that could handle all my needs.

The way it handles photos is not clear in any of the literature, but tech support clearly understood the issues.
