Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500


The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 includes a 1-year limited warranty, which is typical among scanners at this price point. Though a small number of users report initial defects, most never need to call on the warranty. Feedback on the quality of customer...

Fast, Scans to mobile devices or a single computer via Wi-Fi, Can scan both sides of a document in a single pass

Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 review


Great for businesses that regularly deal with hundreds of hard copy pages, but others could do better with an MFP or portable document scanner

It may seem expensive for a scanner, but it's the document management features that makes the Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 a great buy. If you only need to scan the occasional document you may be better off with an MFP, but if you have either years of...

Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 review


See: more scanner reviews.

Fujitsu has reminded us once again that the ScanSnaps lead the way in sheetfeed scanners. In all honesty, there was nothing a great deal wrong with the S1500, and we suspect owners of the older device won't have sufficient reason to upgrade. However,...

ix500 Scansnap Deluxe


This may not be a fair appraisal of the scanner since I only had it unboxed and set up for an hour or two. I have no doubt that it might be all others have raved about. Certainly the wireless is a plus. This unit was for a home-office environment that...

Fast & wireless are the two biggies, also has usb3.0. I bought after reviewing comments and researching for some time

No "batch capability" built in to the programming through Scansnap. It also has no Twain drivers but I knew that. (but it should)

Fast - easy to use, compact so it doesn't take up a lot of desk space ; Love the fact that it scans both sides at the same time

None at the moment

Does NOT support Twain /ISIS


If you have to have Twain like we do, you must do the FI series..... but for a scanner this expensive it should already be supported.

Excellent scanner, very fast

Does not Support Twain or ISIS.... these are the most commonly required scanning protocols for importing directly into your app

Does what is supposed to and lasts for ever


if you have a particular program that requires TWAIN drivers, look at Fujitsu's other offerings. TWAIN is like printer drivers - the bane of tech support and never solid. This comes with a great software bundle that allows you to do so much. The last...

The bundled software allows you to do many things and do them well. Adobe Acrobat Standard - nice. Dual sided scanning with blank page removal. Wireless ; Scanner quality is top notch. I have 40 of these and the previous model on everyone's desk and I...

Not really a con, but just know that this does not have TWAIN drivers. It scans directly to various programs in .pdf or .jpg format. Which is really all you need in most situations

If all you are doing is scanning to a PDF or JPG file on your drive this will work. If you would like to use any other format TOUGH If you would like to use any Document management software TOUGH If you would like to use the INCLUDED Adobe software to...

Decent speed Scanner ; Decent Image Quality

No Driver support TWAIN / WIA / ISIS / KOFAX ; The Manufacture deliberatly did not create drivers for this document scanner to make it "easier for users" so if you have any software that you need to be able to scan to well TOUGH ; PDF or JPG support...
