Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 review

 

Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500

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

 

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 delivers fast desktop scanning for documents and business cards.

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.

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

Fujitsu ScanSnap!

 

Here's something that isn't run of the mill. Fujitsu looks like it has stepped into the shoes of a typical SOHO customer to discover what they might need from a paper document processing perspective. The result is ScanSnap!, a carefully targeted small...

Full copy of Adobe Acrobat 5.0, quick and easy

Lack of top-flight OCR functionally

What ScanSnap! is great for is quick and easy digitising of single pages into PDF format files for emailing, archiving, etc. However for the asking price, the lack of top-flight OCR functionality is a serious omission. Ignoring the steep price, if you...

Fujitsu - ScanSnap S1500

 

If you need to use a desktop scanner on a regular basis, you want it to be quick and easy to operate. It helps, too, if it's small and able to convert scanned documents into a ...

A compact sheetfed scanner, the ScanSnap S1500 is both quick and able to cope with a variety of documents from business cards upwards. It struggles with anything bigger than A4, but the bundled software makes it easy to both scan and convert documents...

"Fujitsu neglects to mention TWAIN drivers"

 

What should be a good scanner turns out to be a useless doorstop. I cannot find another company that is producing scanners without TWAIN drivers. Fujitsu claims that having TWAIN drivers would make the device more complicated and harder to use. In...

Fast and Compact

No Twain Drivers and no plans to publish.
