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...

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,...

The best, but with issues

 

It would be great if software could "learn" or be taught common media, like the pattern of a phone bill vs. credit card bill. I wouldn't even mind being up-sold better document management software. That and barcode location and decoding would be a...

The sheet-feeding mechanism in the Fujitsu is simply the best in the industry -- they're known for it. The space-saving design is good, as is scanning to portable devices using WiFi

The software flips pages arbitrarily, often when content is short. The in and out feeds could be larger/longer as legal pages often fall on the floor ; It would be nice if it could scan "unattended" so that mail could be scanned into PC-based client...

Fantastic Scanner!

 

Wish it came with a management software for my PDFs - I have this scanner setup on a table at home with a spare PC. My wife and I throw our mail and receipts that we want to keep track on through it. Any mail or paper we want to keep a record of but...

Easy to install and setup ; Very easy to use ; Wife approved

Nothing major at this time, doesn't like receipts occasionally

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)

Fujitsu iX500

 

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

Do NOT buy this scanner!!!!

 

fast

This model has NO Twain drivers! You cannot use this via redirected RDP. What a waste

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

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
