Fujitsu ScanSnap S300 Scans And Delivers

 

Fujitsu's ScanSnap S300 is the cutest, most minimalist sheetfed scanner ever. It's so perfectly tiny and well-proportioned that the snaking USB cable actually

Decent software. Munchkin-small. Scans both sides of paper. Sheetfed. Scans with extraordinary quickness at low DPI

Doesn't work on Macs. Maximum 600dpi. Needs 2 USB ports without AC. Good lord, nearly three hundred bucks? Really

Fujitsu ScanSnap S300

 

You could reasonably argue over whether the Fujitsu ScanSnap S300 ($295 direct) is the world's biggest portable scanner or its smallest desktop document scanner. Fujitsu fudges the issue by calling it the world's smallest portable scanner that both...

Portable. Duplexes. Automatic document feeder (ADF). Document and business card scanner

No standard drivers, which means you can't scan from within most programs

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S300 scanner brings the convenience of duplexing and an automatic document feeder to scanning on the go.

Review: Fujitsu ScanSnap S300M document scanner

 

Fujitsu's ScanSnap S300M takes the technology from the company's desktop document scanners, and puts it into a portable device. The S300M is speedy and easy to use, but it does have some limitations.

Unfortunately, Fujitsu doesn't bundle any OCR software with the S300M. However, since you can scan to a PDF file, you can use Adobe Acrobat's OCR Text Recognition feature

Fujitsu ScanSnap S300 review

 

Fujitsu's ScanSnap S300 takes the technology from the company's well-received desktop document scanners, such as the ScanSnap S510M, and puts it into a device that's easier to carry from location to location.

The paperless office is a nice sentiment, but there are professions that are slow to evolve from creating reams of paper on a regular basis - law, estate agents, and medicine, to name a few. For mobile professionals looking for a way to manage paper...

Fujitsu ScanSnap S300

 

The first question I asked myself is why anyone would buy a stand alone scanner when there are perfectly good general scanners that are included for very little extra when you buy a perfectly decent All In One unit

The software provided works with Windows XP, Vista or 7. I tested it for a good period on Windows Vista. But I also tried it on a Windows XP Netbook and just to be sure on a Windows 7 system all installed without problem

A Double-Sided Scanner : Fujistu ScanSnap S300

 

While a multifunction device can cover a range of eventualities, sometimes you just need the scanner element.

The popularity of multi-function, or all-in-one, devices has resulted in a drop in the number of standalone scanners available in the market. Rarely does a standalone scanner cross my desk but this is one of those occasions with the arrival of the...

Fujitsu - ScanSnap S300

 

Technology is now advanced enough to have shrunk the traditional large-footprint scanner down to something that resembles the dimensions of a family-sized bar of Toblerone. Fujitsu has come up with something different with the ScanSnap S300, ...

The S300 is aimed at a rather specific market, namely those who want to create digital copies of documents, and by not being TWAIN compatible it won't be for everyone. Despite being rather expensive it does do its job well, though, and if you want the...

It's time to go portable. We've gone mobile with just about every aspect of your home computers. There are notebook mice that you can stuff in your pocket. There are webcams that can easily fit into the smallest of laptop bags. But what about scanners?...
