Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M


Make The Paperless Office A Reality

Fast fast, fast. Good image quality for text and business graphics. Easy to use. Can scan varying paper sizes in a batch.

Mediocre photo reproduction quality. Pricey.

Attack that mountain of documents with the S510M. It'll put you one step closer to the paperless office

Review: Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M


A scanner that fits the bill and your pocket with its bundled software

Does exactly what it is designed to do. Exceeds expectations


There are some basic assumptions that we all make when it comes to scanners: Scanners are horrible;they take up lots of desk space; and they’re slow. Document feeder scanners are subject to paper jams, and really, people use them mostly for picture

Updated software makes it even easier to go paperless


If you want to turn your paper archives into searchable PDFs, it doesn't get any easier than the Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M. At $495 it's not cheap-but its bundled software alone is worth far more than the scanner itself.

Automatic two-sided scanning ; fast ; automatic OCR ; handles small and oversize pages

Quick Menu feature doesn't work with Entourage ; OCR software can't keep up with scanner ; fairly expensive

Unlike flatbed scanners made primarily for scanning images, the ScanSnap has a compact, upright design more appropriate for scanning documents. It can churn through stacks of up to 50 sheets of paper at a time, scanning both sides of the page at once...

Awesome! Fast, easy

Fast, easy to operate, good software for Mac

Scan to pdf only, demands interaction, would like more automation

The best document scanner available


I just love this scanner. If you are looking for a no nonsense scanner to store your documents electronically. I use it everyday and it is wonderful.

It is so easy to install and easy to use. It is quick and scan documents perfectly

Should come with an upgraded version of Adobe Acrobat Professional since the one that comes in the box doesn't work properly with Leopard. It is expensive

Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M Sheetfed Scanner


This is an amazing product. I was using another scanner that took forever to get the job done and could scan only one side per scan. This one now does it much,much faster, can scan both sides of a page, and does things like auto-straighten pages and...

Fast. Easy. Compact. User friendly

None that I can think of, although I suppose the price could be a little lower
