Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 Review

 

Most people look at scanners as a commodity that sometimes comes for free in the form of a printer/scanner combo [...]

Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M

 

Maybe Fujitsu's design team felt nostalgic for their now-dead printer division, because there's no way around it--the S1500M looks like a printer (or at least a scanner with an identity crisis). That's not a bad thing, mind you.

Lower-res scans are fast. Device is compact. Scans multiple documents. Includes OCR software

Relatively high price. Doesn't work for thicker pages or bound items. High-quality scans are very slow

ScanSnap's best feature is also its main flaw: The feeder technique yields unprecedented speed at the cost of making it difficult to scan nonstandard page sizes. At the end of the day, though, it really has one job-to scan-and the ScanSnap does this...

Fujitsu ScanSnap SV600 review: Touch-free scanner won't damage source material

 

It only looks like a table lamp. The Fujitsu SV600 scans material quickly and efficiently, but page curvature is a problem.

Can scan virtually anything ; Very small footprint ; Fast

Not great at correcting for page distortion or curvature ; Not suited to scanning transparencies ; Expensive

It looks like a table lamp, but the ScanSnap SV600 scans material quickly and efficiently, and it takes up minimal space when not in use. It's also a hoot to watch, but page curvature is a problem.

Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 Deluxe Bundle

 

If you're someone who's interested in digitizing and archiving all your paper receipts and financial and legal documents--or just about anything you have on paper--there are a handful of consumer sheet-fed scanners to choose from, including Fujitsu's...

Very fast; includes OCR software and business-card reader software for Windows users; simple to use.

Doesn't scan photos well; doesn't scan oversized documents; OCR software isn't available for Mac.

Fujitsu's ScanSnap S1500 is a fast, compact, and easy-to-use scanner for digitally archiving all your paper documents.

Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500

 

Better yet, the beauty in the design goes beyond skin deep. The footprint is a mere 6.2 by 11.5 inches (WD), and you have the choice between opening the front output tray or not. Leave the tray closed, and the paper lands on the flat space in front of...

Document and business-card scanner. Rated at 20 pages per minute (ppm), or 40 images per minute (ipm) for scanning both sides

Lack of a standard driver means you can't give a scan command from within a program

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 is the most impressive ScanSnap model yet, but it doesn't provide a standard scan driver, which would give it more flexibility.

Dedicated document scanner

 

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 is a sheet-fed scanner that can process multiple pages very quickly. Due to its upright design, the S1500 takes up less space on a desktop. Since its primary purpose is scanning documents, the S1500 has a relatively low...

Very fast, auto document feeder, business-card scanning, automatic duplex scanning, good packaged software

No drivers for use with third-party scanning software, not meant for photo or 3-D scanning, comparatively low resolution, expensive

Review Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M document scanner

 

For those looking to reduce the amount of paper in their life, the space-saving, easy to use ScanSnap S1500m offers competitive price and solid performance.

Easy to use ; Intuitive controls ; Space-saving design ;

Scans of images contained some artifacts ; OCR documents required some editing ;

The compact silver and white S1500M is solidly built and connects to your Mac via USB 2.0. Its fold-up design allows it to take up little desktop real estate when not in use
