4 out of 5 eggs Overall great scanner but not for photos 01/31/2014

This review is from: Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 (PA03656-B005) Duplex 600 dpi x 600 dpi USB / Wi-Fi Color Document Scanner

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.
