Fujistu ScanSnap S1300i Document Scanner
  • This is compact, reasonably fast even in duplex, and the OCR is great, and works for a variety of languages.
  • It's quick, and the duplex abilities are a real bonus.
  • Advantages, very quick, scans duplex, can load multiple sheets into sheet feeder.
  • Great little scanner. Easy to install and software enclosed is good for the job. Very quick scanner, does both sides simultaneously.

What customers say about "Scanning"
Fujistu ScanSnap S1300i Document Scanner
  • I've scanned in in excess of 3,000 photos and images so far and am very pleased with the results.
  • It can scan in colour or mono and at various resolutions and has an adjustable paper guide that will allow A4 and smaller (also a little wider).
  • The document feed is limited to about 20 sheets of average A4 but is very useful in that it will scan small documents such as till receipts successfully.
  • Set up was easy, it scanned in receipts and scanned both sides of any paperwork up to size A4. It was so quick, as in seconds it scanned the items.
  • The scan quality is not as good as the pin sharp images produced by my flatbed -which is far slower, and only does one scan at a time- but is fine for normal photos.
Brother ADS-1700W Document Scanner
  • It will scan fine to a PC. I had no problems.
  • It rarely jams, seems fast, and makes nice scans.
  • The scan functionality of the ADS-1700W is great.
  • It scans quickly and the image quality is excellent.
  • This machine will not scan my photos.

What customers say about "Features"
Fujistu ScanSnap S1300i Document Scanner
  • The HP scanner was large and slow, produced adequate document reproduction, but totally unacceptable photo reproduction, was prone to jamming even when under-loaded, and had terrible software.
  • Very fast for what I've been using it for, with no apparent impact on quality - the OCR works quickly as well.
  • The machine is simple to operate and will allow up to 10 sheets to be stacked.
  • The bundled software is excellent and can produce several formats including (usefully) searchable PDF allowing copy and paste of text.
  • Quality is very good. The software is a little quirky but you quickly learn to create a desktop shortcut to the Scansnap folder where the PDFs appear.
Brother ADS-1700W Document Scanner
  • Quick scanning speeds via USB 3.0.
  • Easy connection to WiFi. Great scanner.
  • Quick and easy driver/software setup.
  • Scans can be saved directly to a specified folder on your computer.
  • Card/business card scanner slot works well and saves both sides, nicely formatted into one document.
