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.
Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 Document Scanner
  • There is a useful attachment for scanning business cards.
  • Fast, reliable, handles all kinds of documents/business cards etc.
  • The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 is an excellent document scanner with easy to configure computer software.
  • This is an excellent scanner for archiving documents.
  • Great product for scanning business cards and documents.

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.
Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 Document Scanner
  • I would suggest this scanner for personal use or in a small business. Wireless, fast, and easy to use.
  • Fujitsu provides ABBYY FineReader PDF Tools for Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. Good feature.
  • The OCR rendering of most documents is excellent.
  • This scanner is a great improvement with new scanning software to boot.
  • I will never buy a Fujitsu scanner again. I actually own the previous model. The software is buggy.
