Excerpt: Unlike the S1500 or ix500, this thing won't take a group of oddly shaped pieces of paper. So if you have a perfect multi-page (and not too many) this works fine. But I had a stack of checks with envelopes, which the ix500 would eat right up - a bunch of different sized pieces of paper.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution
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.
Summary: Its good if you need one for home use for small projects. Or an easily portable scanner. If you need a main Office scanner spend the money and get one of the 1500 modles. This scanner is only going handle about 10 pages loaded at a time. But...............
Summary: I purchased the ScanSnap because I read positive reviews about it online. I have been very disappointed with paper jams, crooked scans, etc. I wish I would have gotten a bigger, better scanner. It would have been worth the extra dollars to help me get things done in a timely fashion.
Summary: I got this ScanSnap for use in a remote office, thinking that it would be a better alternative than the larger models that Fujitsu makes. I also have an S510 that I've owned for several years and has done a great job for me. The S1300i is a bit too far from good for my taste.
Summary: I purchased the ScanSnap S1300i as well as the Canon P-215 and tested both, but I'm returning the Fujitsu. Placed side by side on a Macbook and a PC, then switched to the other computer, the Canon was much faster at everything I tested it on.
Summary: I bought this because I decided to scan all incoming mail/receipts to reduce my paper storage. I came into this expecting an improvement in my document scanning workflow over a Samsung CLX3160 all in one. I think I got that, but not quite as much as I'd hope by buying a device dedicated to scanning.
Excerpt: I purchased the ScanSnap S1301i as a replacement for a single sheet scanner, which is limited. I wanted to do multipage and duplex scanning. The ScanSnap is a nice unit but, unfortunately, I do have problems with several type documents that I scan.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Good Resolution, Portable
Summary: An excellent device (when it works). Scans docs up to 8.5 inches wide but does not scan receipts very efficiently. Doc feed guides seldom work and the device has an irritating habit of chewing up credit card receipts. All-in-all, a 3 out of 5 and could do better.
Summary: I don't have time to do to many reviews but for the amount of time i have put into research of finding a scanner that will automatically distribute my documents automatically based on the ocr software, i believe that i owe it to amazon junkies like myself.
