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...

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.

Great Scanner


I bought one of these for my small law office (lots and lots of paper). Soon bought a second. Fast, accurate, and reliable. Great product.

Best scanner, fast & reliabile


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...

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...
