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

Takes up small area on desk.


The only dislike it is not being recognized, we have a S1500 with the same problem on a different computer.

When it scans it is very good

You have to restart the computer sometimes twice for it to recognize the scanner or it will not pick up the paper to scan

Consumer review by:

It simply works. Elegant


It took me five minutes to set up and start using this scanner and I haven't stopped since. Cookie Monster is the star of Sesame Street, but this Paper Monster is the star of my desk. I've scanned thousands of pages of documents and the feeder has...

Ease-of-setup, Ease-of-use, small footprint, fast scanning, reliable

NONE. Really. NONE

It Just works!


Ive been frustrated and have not had a good paperless solution since Mac OS9 and the Visioneer PaperPort sheetfeed scanner and software combo of 10 years ago. Flatbed scanners are way too slow for any practical use and until now, any kind of portable...

Fast, Mac compatible, Small footprint, portable

The Business Card OCR software needs updating

Consumer review by:

Accurate, Fast and Portable - Great Scanner but...


I use this to scan in signed documents for my military reserve work and it scans great. Scans to PDFs that can be searchable only by the included ScanSnap organizer, but not by windows search tools. If you want true OCR, you need a higher end scanner...

Accurate, Fast and VERY portable

ScanSnap software for OCR for you to edit the documents is not existant. Dont expect to scan a document then edit it in Word - you need the 500 series for that as no TWAIN driver is available

Best Tool I have


Small and light - it scans right into your computer in PDF form and it is so easy - I would recommend this to anyone who has to email documents on a regular basis. The ease is just unbelievable and it's quick too

sometimes it takes more than one page in at once but if you keep your eye on it, you can catch it

Consumer review by:

Works Well....


My wife and I run a small CPA firm. Paper, paper, and more paper. The scanner performs well. Perfect for the field and office. Fast and only jams when I jam it. The software gets along with Windows 7 64. It's changed the filing culture in our office
