Summary: I'm a fan of this workhorse machine and these are nicely refurbished. Used our first one since 2005 before rollers finally deteriorated. Mutli-page scans can jam but it is fast (36 ppm on 240 resolution) and we scan hundreds of pages a day. May have trouble using with newer operating systems. I just swapped with another scanner on a dedicated machine running NT but I wasn't able to get it connected to anything newer than Vista.
Summary: I have been a tech-head all my life. 20+ years in Printing, Publishing then over a decade in IT. I've used flatbeds, handhelds, camera stands everything to image and nothing worked as well as this little machine! I'm on my 2nd used one!
Summary: Very easy set-up, simple to use and very forgiving when the paper is not fed in straight. Quite speedy for a small device and takes up relatively small desk space. Scans are excellent and the device works with most programs.
Fujitsu fi-4120C Desktop Scanner - A good product at a good price
3 May 2011
Summary: I bought this particular scanner as a direct request from a customer who I often buy office equipment for. My primary experience is with HP Scanners, so buying a Fujitsu was new for me. I found machine to be a little smaller than expected, but operation was quiet and it handled a stack of originals quickly. Their software interface (drivers were not included but easily found online) made crisp, OCR capable scans from the get-go.
Summary: This scanner is small and compact, fits well on the desk, and is a solid workhorse with a fairly fast scan speed. It is, of course, an older model now, having been replased with the fi-6180, which is also a great machine. The only difficulty with this scanner, is it does not work with Vista 64 or Windows 7 operating systems, without some kind of workaround. It does work with Vista 32.
Summary: I first saw this scanner when I went to the hospital for a routine procedure and was impressed with its small size and speed. The employee who was scanning told me what a pleasure it was to use. I was hooked, and after doing some research, I bought it to use at home to replace my flatbed scanner. I scan receipts, warranties, bank statements, brochures, books, etc.
Summary: Comments about Fujitsu ScanPartner fi-4120C2: I like the design and cool layout of this scanner. It is very small and hardly takes up any room at all. I was set up in about 10 minutes from receiving it. I also had to call tech support and they were very helpful in identifying my needs. The warranty is great to have as well incase something every happens.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: This is not a cheap scanner, you already knew that. But I think it is worth the price if you have lots of paper you want to turn into ones and zeros. I had a few cardboard boxes full of paperback books that were taking up too much space, but I didn't want to throw them out. I cut off their bindings with a band saw and ran the pages through the FI-4120C and turned them into PDF files -- about 200 books, somewhere around 30,000 pages -- only cleaning out the paper dust...
