Do I recommend this product? Maybe.

  • Excerpt: I was terrifically excited when I bought my ScanSnap about 2 months ago. Maybe it's my inability to understand, but I'm still buried under a mountain of papers. I bought Paperless because of reviews I read and I find the whole process slow and laborious. I was also excited about the upgrade I made to wi-fi, but after two sessions, wi-fi quit and hasn't worked since. I would love to sit in a hands-on class for a week with someone.

OK for home use

Scanner Master, Adorama
17 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Compared to other high(er) speed scanners on the market, this one: 1) is slower, 2) has poor recognition of page orientation 3) offers no possibility to edit the scan before saving it as a file, which is especially annoying given that sometimes it scans a page upside down, and there is no way to correct that. These three combined rule it out for heavy duty office use.

This product has very poor reliability.

  • Excerpt: This product has been a major disappointment, as the reliability is very poor. It is seldom recognized by the ScanSnap manager software. I have had to uninstall and reinstall the software numerous times, with repeated restarts of my computer, just to get the device to be recognized. As I type this review, my ScanSnap is sitting lifeless and not recognized by ScanSnap Manager. It's very frustrating! When the product works, it's wonderful! It's fast and easy to use!

Nur für die die keine andere Software nutzen wollen

Günter, Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: Die Scanfunktion selbst ist, soweit ich es in der kurzen Nutzungsdauer feststellen konne, sehr gut und schnell. Leider ist dieser Scanner ist nur mit der Fuitsu eigenen Software nutzbar. Mangels standard Schnittstelle wir Twain oder ISIS wird er von keiner anderen Software erkannt (dies kommt leider in der Beschreibung nicht so recht rüber). Musste ihn zurück schicken, da ich ihn für meine Zwecke (u.a.Datev) nicht nutzen konnte.

Verarbeitung lässt zu wünschen übrig

Thomas Bauer, Amazon
22 June 2013
  • Summary: Wer den Vorgänger 1500 S hat sollte sich überlegen dieses Modell zu bestellen wenn er keinen Rückschritt im Bezug auf die Verarbeitung des Gehäuses und die Materialien machen will. Glanzoberflächen dort wo man hinfässt man sieht jeden noch so kleinen Fingerabdruck. Beim 1500 nicht. Spaltmaße an oberer Kante und leichte wölbung wenn man genauer hinsieht. Beim 1500 exakt verarbeitet.

super scanner mais logiciel insupportable

Jean-Pierre Stevens, Amazon
16 October 2011
  • Summary: La mécanique sdu scanner est super. La partie logicielle sous windows est scandaleuse tellement elle fonctionne mal et est peu ergonomique. Le prix est bien, le résultat bien mais le scanner vous installe une usine à gaz sur votre Pc qui en plus plante régulièrement. Il faudrait une sérieuse mise à jour pour que cela soit un bon produit.
