Summary: Purchased this scanner in Oct 2014, now end of March 2015. It has been amazing. Very easy to use. Adapts to different-sized papers. Very compact. Very reliable, unlike our last scanner, an all in one piece of junk that was a headache with anything we tried and took a minimum of 5 minutes to scan successfully. I only use it with the cable, which works fine for me. I am amazed how easy it is every time I sit down to use it.
Summary: After using my Canon desktop printer's scan feature for several years I must say that the Fujitsu ix500 is like driving a Rolls Royce. This thing will scan whatever you can put through it. What used to take days with my old scanner now takes 1-2 hours. The included Adobe Acrobat makes this bundle an extreme value. The Rack Filer software is pretty cool in its own right. Others have stated that the pdf conversion is slowish but its like light speed to me.
Pros: double sided scanning in one swipe ease of use scan speed will do photographs included software.
Cons: i didn't find you sooner is not two feet wide!
Summary: My wife and I tried a couple of cheaper scanners in the beginning but quickly discovered that they jammed and/or were very slow. Then we tried the Neat Receipts scanner which claimed ultra fast speeds and no jamming. It did scan very fast but took forever to process the image. This means it was actually very slow to complete a scan. After just a couple of days it started feeding crooked and jamming. We finally decided to invest in the Fujitsu.
Pros: fast scan & processing rarely jams duplex scans
Excerpt: I am converting my reference library and tax info to digital to reduce paper clutter. I use the scanner to scan all documents rather than store paper in filing cabinets. The OCR feature and the scanning speed make it a simplistic to secure, store, and classify all invoices, statements, receipts and all other documents that were previously taking space in file cabinets.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: I wonder why I waited this long to buy this product! The Rack2Filer Smart software makes it so neat to organize business paper! Not perfect yet, but pretty close to what you need in real life to put stuffs into the binders, but now I can avoid storing heavy binders that take up so much space in my home office! The iX500 scanner is fast and easy to use.
Pros: good rack2filer smart software! fast scanning and scaning clear images small footprint machine
Excerpt: After a death, I had to scan over 2000 pages of paper work so I could get rid of boxes upon boxes of paper. After reading reviews which all said the same thing which was go with the IX500 Setup on my Mac was painless. After install I updated software and loaded up the 1st batch of 20 papers. It scanned 20 double sided pages in about 45 sec's with no problems. I love the iPhone wireless app that allows wireless scans to be sent to my iPhone6.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible, Works on Network
