Test: Fujitsu Scansnap iX500

5 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Der Scansnap iX500 ist ein Einzugsscanner für Formate bis DIN A4 und scannt automatisch Vor- und Rückseite der Dokumente. Man kann aber auch auf einseitiges Scannen umstellen. Mithilfe einer mitgelieferten Hülle lassen sich auch Seiten im A3-Format erfassen, wenn man diese in der Mitte faltet und dann in die Hülle einsteckt. Die Hülle ist außerdem hilfreich zum Bearbeiten von mehrspaltigen Zeitungsartikeln. Das Einzugsfach nimmt maximal 50 Seiten auf.
