This review is from: Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 Instant PDF Sheet-Fed Scanner for PC
Pros: Decent quality scans. Fast scanning. Scanning software does a great job at detecting page sizes and cropping without losing anything; it's actually better at this than the more expensive Fujitsu scanner I tried.
Cons: LIGHT scans with low contrast, and no ability to adjust this on color or gray-scale images/PDFs.
Lack of brightness and contrast controls for color and gray-scale scans.
Image bleed-through from the back side of the page on paper thinner than 20 pound weight.
Other Thoughts: Perfect scanner if you want a simple to-use, but somewhat customizable scanning solution. No TWAIN (or ISIS) support isn't a problem if you can live with the included software. Most options you would want are included in the software, the notable exception being brightness and contrast controls. The lack of these controls can be a problem if scanning thinner paper, especially if it's printed on both sides. If you are going to convert to black-and-white (not gray-scale) this is adjustable and shouldn't be a problem. But, if you want to preserve all the information in a document (including color and gradations) you'll have trouble on with double-sided pages which are printed on anything less than 20 pound weight paper...unless you can live with a little image-bleed-through.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler G3 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (White & Red) Model DTIG3/32GBZ
Pros: Capacity and price.
Cons: SLOW. 5 MB/s write speeds.
Other Thoughts: Windows 7 (64 bit) will grind to a crawl when copying large files. The copy function completes in Windows but the caching continues to take a long time to finish writing data to the drive. Don't be fooled by Windows claiming 20+ MB/s transfer speeds at the beginning of a copy. You will wait eons for large files to finish copying, but, so far, they seem to complete eventually and be error-free.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fujitsu fi-6130Z Duplex Sheet-Fed Document Scanner (PA03630-B055)
Pros: Fast. Good quality scans (best quality is with some brightness and contrast tweaking.) Extensive software control with an incredible array of options.
Cons: Brightness and contrast settings in TWAIN driver do not carry over to the ScanSnap software. The standard included software might be too complex for a home user or someone that just wants to click and scan.READ FULL REVIEW
