Excerpt: I love this machine! I originally bought it to digitize my book collection (I recently retired and will be moving into a travel trailer: there is no way I'm giving up my books but there is no way I'm going to have room for them all).
Summary: This is a mature model, and as usual, it doesn't dissapoint. The only reason I nicked it down 1 star was not the units fault, but the seller didn't disclose I'd have to write a check on the spot to UPS when they showed at my door for a customs fee from Canada to USA that the shipper didn't pay in...
Make sure the scanner will work with your software BEFORE you buy

Summary: The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 scanner is great. I have been using computer connected scanners since 1989. My first scanner was a 2 page per minute single sided HP B&W with a powered document feeder capable of holding 25 sheets. I paid nearly $1,000 for the scanner.
Summary: I purchased this scanner to convert years of household documents from paper files to searchable PDFs. So far I have scanned a few thousand documents -- and the scanner is working well. I generally agree with all the other positive reviews here.
Epson WorkForce vs Fujitsu Scansnap - tried both in same week

Summary: I've tried them both (Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S50 and Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500) and the winner is Fujitsu ScanSnap. In short, the reason is bad Epson software and horrendously, awful, incompetent support from Epson, while Fujitsu gets it right in both categories. Here are the details...
Better quality scanning than the "Neat receipts" scanner
24 June 2012
Summary: I had purchased quite a long time ago, a Neat receipts scanner. I got too busy to do any scanning with it. Recently I decided to start scanning my documents, and when I tried to scan an old receipt with the Neat receipts scanner, you could not see anything had scanned...plus it was VERY slow.
Summary: This is a great little scanner for the money. Fast scans and handles multiple documents easily. The main drawback is the there is no TWAIN driver which can be a major drawback for handling documents for a more complicated office environment. I sent mine back to Amazon for this reason.
