Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500

 

The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 is a capable and reliable document scanner that is zippy in scanning to searchable PDF and did well in both text recognition and business-card scanning.

Very fast at scanning to searchable PDF. Met its rated simplex and duplex scan speeds. Good optical-character-recognition (OCR). Did well at reading business cards. Misfeed-free in our testing. Wi-Fi and USB 3.0 connectivity.

You can't give a scan command from within an application. Scanning to some programs may require several steps. Only connects wirelessly to one computer at a time. Documentation could use improvement.

If you prefer a workflow that uses a standard driver you'll be better off with the Canon imageFormula DR-C125. If not, these two are so close in capability that you could flip a coin to choose between them and be happy with either one. The Fujitsu...

Fujitsu iX500 ScanSnap Review

 

The best model you can buy if you your scanning needs are frequent

Fast, high quality scans, easy operation

Expensive, character recognition not perfect

The is the best document scanner currently on the market. If your scanning needs include multiple documents everyday, it is well worth the high price tag.

Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 Now Supports Mobile Devices

 

The ScanSnap Connect app for iOS or Android doesn’t cost anything. Fujitsu did a nice job adding mobile scanning to their great desktop sheet fed scanner.

ScanSnap iX500 Scanner is a Lightning Fast, Dependable Way to Get Organized

 

Incredibly fast high resolution scans with virtually no jamming. "Scan to Mobile" feature works flawlessly.

Bundled software is slightly clunky with non-standard dialogue windows and navigation.

With its amazingly fast and dependable hardware, Fujitsu’s ScanSnap iX500 has made getting organized a resolution that I’m sure I’ll be able to keep long after my New Year’s decorations have been put away. If only my other resolution were so easy to keep.

Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500

 

The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 includes a 1-year limited warranty, which is typical among scanners at this price point. Though a small number of users report initial defects, most never need to call on the warranty. Feedback on the quality of customer...

Fast, Scans to mobile devices or a single computer via Wi-Fi, Can scan both sides of a document in a single pass

No TWAIN or ISIS driver support

Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 review

 

Great for businesses that regularly deal with hundreds of hard copy pages, but others could do better with an MFP or portable document scanner

Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 review

 

See: more scanner reviews.

Fujitsu has reminded us once again that the ScanSnaps lead the way in sheetfeed scanners. In all honesty, there was nothing a great deal wrong with the S1500, and we suspect owners of the older device won't have sufficient reason to upgrade. However,...

Review: Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500

 

Fujitsu's ScanSnap iX500 is as multitalented as desktop scanners come.

A fast desktop scanner that’s good value, extremely easy to use and includes support for wireless mobile devices.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Best scanner in its class but could be better

 

We've used ScanSnaps for years, they're great and the only desktop scanners I will buy. The hardware design is impeccable and if taken alone deserves 5 stars. It loses a star because software is always the weak point with Fujitsu. For example, you...

Fast Excellent scan quality Rarely jams and misfeeds, easy to clear when it does Scans to your notebook or mobile device via WiFi OCR accuracy is excellent

Cannot share over the network Switching between WiFi and USB requires you to physically unplug USB cable. Won't scan long pages after short pages. Software runs in foreground only OCR function not optimized

Fujitsu iX500 (PA03656-B005)

 

I haven't used the wifi built into it so I can't comment on that.

Worked right out of the box. It's fast and hasn't jammed much over the year that I have had this.

Software was a little bit confusing at first but it didn't take long to figure out.
