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.

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.

Superb, high quality product


Unbelievable speed, quality, integration to Evernote for easy future reference. Couldn't ask for more. The iX500 is that good! Negatives, never could get the mobile version to work from my iPad Air but not an issue for me since I don't think I'd ever...

I like my iX500!


I would like to be able to use my iX500 scan checks in to be deposited to my Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union banking account. Will that ever be possible?

Excellent product


Although using the scanner in a wireless mode experienced some delays in actuating the scanner, when I switched to the wire mode, I have experienced no such delays. In both modes, I experienced no jam. I highly recommend this product. It is worth the...

It works with a Mac but doesn't provide Adobe for Mac


This scanner is heads and shoulders above the ScanSnap S1500M, which I replaced with the iX500. No more paper jams. No more failures to grab the paper to scan because Fujitsu improved the roller so that it actually grabs the paper. However, even though...

Love Everything About It


ScanSnap iX500 eliminated 4 drawers of paper (bills, tax returns, medical records, warranty's etc.). It is fast and easy to use. It has made my life more efficient and productive. One recommended improvement - make a one step back-up function that I...
