Summary: I purchased this unit to reduce the boxes of papers I have in storage. As my files have grown, I have found it increasingly difficult to find a given document in short period of time. I am also concerned about the security of my documents is this era of identity theft. I purchased the unit to address each concern, but not as a scanner for photos and slides. I plan on purchasing a flatbed scanner for that mission.
Summary: I bought this after reading very strong reviews, but I confess I'm strongly disappointed in the software that comes with the program. Not Adobe, but the ScanSnap software that stands between the machine and Adobe. This software has a strangely DOS or Windows 3.1 feel to it. It won't allow you to save a file with spaces in the name, so you need to use underscores, or do what I do: Let it save it with a date-based name, then do a "Save as" from Adobe and change the name.
Excerpt: If you are looking for a simple solution for scanning documents in your office then the Fujitsu ScanSnap is well worth a look. It has a multiple sheet feed enabling it to scan whole documents, it can scan double sided and colour or black and white. It copes easily with different sized documents including business cards and fits easily on your desk without taking up oceans of space.
