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.

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.

Our office is working its way to become paperless. Most scanners take too long to scan multiple documents, and aren't duplex units. This scanner scans fast and includes duplex (front & back) scanning. Without this unit, we'd waste too much time trying...

My right-hand assistant....


ScanSnap is so user-friendly. It's compact when closed, can be loaded up with a couple dozen papers - receipts, or business cards, or full page sheets, as well as photographs. Keeping a load similar in size is logical and makes working it easier. So...

Excellent product


If you want to go paperless, this is the scanner. Much better than Neat scanner.

Expectations exceeded!


This product was purchased only after careful research. It has exceeded my expectations, but somethings might be improved. For example, cash receipts are a hassle when only two inches wide. If the scanner is positioned on a platform or shelf and the...

Excellent Scanner ... Software Needs Improvement


The scanner hardware is awesome. It works easily and scans both sides quickly. Can't really ask for much more in this price range. The software is not as good. It does the job, but the performance is not very good. Scanning for documents is a bit...
