Summary: I love this scanner and I use the Rack2File software that came with it. You couldn't find an easier setup. This keeps all papers, receipts, business cards in electronic file so you don't have to have paper clutter around, and you can do searches with keywords (which you attach to the docs when you initially file it away). This isn't the first one I've had and I wouldn't think twice about recommending to anyone.
Excerpt: This scanner is great. It's small and therefore doesn't take up to much space on my desk. It's portable. I can fit it in my bag and take it with me if I need to scan docs. It's smart. The software converts my docs to PDF, JPG and other formats. It Mars my docs readable and searchable. It does double sided scanning. The software allowed me to easily organize the documents by just creating folders and dragging. All this for a great competitive price. What's not to love.
Summary: I've had it for a week. It's fast and works great. Haven't had time to put it through all the paces but so far I'm very happy. Price is steep but I bought it on recommendations so I expect it to be great overall.
Excerpt: The S1300i Is the best small scanner I have used. I had the older version of the IX500 in my office and it was great. When I retired I wanted a scanner for home use but could not justify the $ for a home scanner. The S1300i was only $ and for home use was just what I needed. It is fast, easy to use and copies both sides at the same time. You can pay more and get more or pay less and get less.
Pros: Easy To Transport, Easy To Use, Good Resolution, Scans Accurately, Scans Quickly
Excerpt: It definitely serves my purpose, which is to keep track of personal records electronically. Easy to setup and to start using it. The only downside I found was I thought ALL PDF documents scanned would be searchable by default - however there are certain conditions that need to be met (such as highlighted keywords) for searching to be enabled.
