Summary: Purchased the scanner and received on the promised date. All good. When trying to install Adobe 8.0 it just hung up. Software copied, icon was on the screen. No reaction on clicking. Nothing. Deleted files and started all over. Same thing. Did not even come to registration page. Entire thing again. Nothing. Called Adobe. They took my number and email and assigned a case number and told me to contact the distributor to get a new disk.
Summary: I purchased this about a month ago in order to eliminate the clutter caused by 100's of business cards, it is also used to minimize paper files by scanning bills and invoices. The CardIris and ScanSnap software work very well. My problem is with the included Acrobat 8 Pro software - BEWARE this software does not work with Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. When I called Adobe they were no help telling me I had to purchase another, more up to date version.
Super-fast but overpriced, with glitchy software & awful documentation

Summary: I got my ScanSnap 2 weeks ago and have now scanned about 7,000 pages of docs. Although I feel it's a flawed product, I think it's still the best available that I've found. GOOD: * The hardware is really good at what it does: wicked fast, solid quality scanning. I can easily tear through 300-500 pages an evening. * The hardware workflow deals efficiently with common problems, most notably, reliably detecting & helping you correct when a page misfeeds.
Summary: This is a great scanner for all of the reasons mentioned by the most helpful 5-star reviews, however, the one dealbreaker for me is that when running commercially-printed photos through the scanner, the scanner scratches the photos, with subtle lines running down the photos about 1cm apart. This happens consistently for all photos. I'm wondering, has anybody else had this problem?
Summary: I bought this when I upgraded my office systems with the intention of going paperless, or almost paperless. My business is a sole proprietor consulting firm so efficiency is extremely important to me - I have no secretary and so I strive to automate and streamline as much as possible. I haven't had a chance to use the machine extensively but I did complete a few large scanning jobs and I am extremely pleased so far with the performance.
Summary: Wir verwenden in einer Arztpraxis schon drei Geräte des Vorgängermodells ScanSnap S510M. Dieses ältere Modell gefällt mir deutlich besser als der Nachfolger S1500M, der größer, häßlicher, kantiger, klappriger (Papierauffangschale vorn) und deutlich raumfordernder (nach vorn) ist. Ich weiß überhaupt nicht, was Firmen dazu bewegt, eindeutige Erfolgsmodelle zu verändern nur um sie zu verändern. Was das bringt, ist mir schleierhaft.
