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: 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: 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: 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...
Summary: I have used this scanner in my office for over a year with zero problems. It's fast, quiet, and efficient. And it does a great job with both letter and legal size documents. The automatic document feeder works well with documents up to about 50 pages long. The instructions for installing the software drivers were a little confusing. I recommend going to Fujitsu's website and downloading and installing the latest drivers.
Summary: This scanner is a bit pricey but is well worth it if you have to archive a large amount of paper. Beats hands-down the models from Visioneer. I like the duplex feature, fast warm up of the lamp, and speed. Interface is very good, compared to Visioneer or HP. I would buy another one again.
