Summary: Not all that pleased with this one, the cost of the device comes with the expectation that you get something without major downsides. I can list some glaring ones. For starters, I have to restart my PC to get the software to recognize the scanner after being idle. This is incredibly inconvenient and a terrible failure on Fujitsu's part. This is with all the troubleshooting they recommend, which boils down to trying different USB ports, and reinstalling the software.
Excerpt: Of course you cant scan a page of a book or booklet. But is is not easy to scan multiple pages of different sizes in just one document. While the feeder is good it is not excellent. I am happy with the product but it does not solve all the scan needs.
Excerpt: I use the scanner mostly for scanning postcards to sell on ebay. I like that I can just put the postcard through, and both the front and back are scanned and cropped. The only downside that I have found so far is that it does bend the card as it goes by a roller. The items that I have put through so far seem to like going through the lengthways, horizontal may get tilted.
Excerpt: The ScanSnap S1300i has met all my requirements for ease of use and reliability. Paper bills, receipts and other documents that I still receive are quickly converted into digital files stored in the "digital file cabinet" on my iMac for quick access in the future. I have found that the default file name system used by the ScanSnap does not meet my needs, so I frequently change them to file names that are more meaningful to me.
Excerpt: The ScanSnapS1300i is fantastic. It's small, easy to carry, and has perfectly worked every time. I extensively travel and stay in motel rooms, and it's ideal for that or in a home/office. The scan and build quality are great.
Excerpt: I bought this scanner to reduce (eliminate?) my physical file cabinet. It scans beautifully on both sides of the paper. I really like that it's easy to organize all of my scanned paperwork into folders and files; management of these folders is also easy. My only complaint is that when I am scanning multiple pages (up to 4 sheets it seems to handle OK) often the scanner sends through 2 or 3 sheets at once.
