Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500


The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 is a capable and reliable document scanner that is fast in scanning to searchable PDF and did well in both text recognition and business-card scanning.

Very fast at scanning to searchable PDF. Met its rated simplex and duplex scan speeds. Good optical-character-recognition (OCR). Did well at reading business cards. Misfeed-free in our testing. Wi-Fi and USB 3.0 connectivity

You can't give a scan command from within an application. Scanning to some programs may require several steps. Only connects wirelessly to one computer at a time. Documentation could use improvement

The Fujitsu iX500 ($495) is a capable and likeable document scanner for personal or small office use. It met its rated speeds in our tests and lost almost no time when saving files to searchable PDF. The scanner did well in both text recognition and...

ScanSnap iX500 Scanner is a Lightning Fast, Dependable Way to Get Organized


Incredibly fast high resolution scans with virtually no jamming. "Scan to Mobile" feature works flawlessly.

Bundled software is slightly clunky with non-standard dialogue windows and navigation.

With its amazingly fast and dependable hardware, Fujitsu’s ScanSnap iX500 has made getting organized a resolution that I’m sure I’ll be able to keep long after my New Year’s decorations have been put away. If only my other resolution were so easy to keep.

Review: Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500


Fujitsu's ScanSnap iX500 is as multitalented as desktop scanners come.

A fast desktop scanner that’s good value, extremely easy to use and includes support for wireless mobile devices.

Awesome Scanner


We bought this additional scanner for a new person. We previously had the preceeding model of this one, which worked great, but the newer features are awesome. It's faster which is an added plus. Definitely would recommend this scanner.

New software works!


I use this scanner just for receipts. The new software has a "Receipts" option and now scanning store receipts is logical and quick. Thanks.

Outstanding prooduct


The Scansnap has performed extremely well and allows one to scan multipage documents easily. My only criticism is that the machine turns off after a time and you have to go to the Manager to restart it--otherwise a fabulous addendum to your PC
