Excellent choice for home office or individual use.

Summary: I am an attorney with a home office and needed to go paperless out of necessity, so I bought this scanner on the recommendation of a colleague. I have a Brother 8480DN MFC that has a scanner, but image quality was not great and it's scanner simply has limitations. Good MFC but I needed more from my scanner if I wanted to go paperless. This scanner has the footprint of a small (non-mfc) inkjet printer when fully open. Scanning quality is excellent at default settings.
Summary: I love this Scanner! It is a great product in a little package! I no longer need to leave my desk, use the office scanner, scan to my email, resave on my desk top with correct name and then upload or resend I can now just use the snap scan, and scan directly to a folder, desktop or email. I can rename in a single step, and I know that I have barely scratched the surface! The other great thing??? it takes up very little prime real estate on my desk! Love it!!
Summary: We love this thing! About a year ago, we decided to go paperless and bought this machine. It's pretty much all plastic and I was afraid it would break in no time flat, a bummer especially because it's pricey. But no, it keeps going and going, well over a year at this point. It has tons of features, comes with Adobe Acrobat, can do dual-sided scans in one pass, has excellent Optical Character Recognition, and does its job quickly.
Summary: I bought our Fujitsu scanner for Mac in February 2010 from another online retailer, so we've had it over two years. I noticed the price hasn't changed since I bought mine, so it holds it value well. The first year or so it worked flawlessly. In the past year or so, I've noticed that it jams more easily; papers that are completely flat and wrinkle-free get twisted as they slide through, causing the scanner to jam and stop, and then I have to restart the scanning process,...
Summary: This scanner is an excellent tool for archiving documents. The scanner itself is easy-to-use as is the software that you use to configure your scan. It's important to keep the inside of the scanner clean, or dust can accumulate, creating a colored line on your scan. A simple swipe with a cotton swab fixes the problem. I found that this scanner didn't create any office magic, though.
Summary: With all the papers I have in file boxes stored in my house, I decided it was time to digitize and cut the clutter. Also, I was noticing many of my older receipts and papers were fading or becoming too fragile to handle. My flatbed scanner is great, when I have only a few things to copy or scan, but it wasn't going to cut it with as many receipts and files that I planned to scan and then get rid of.
Summary: I really like this little scanner. It can scan through quite a number of pages in a short time. Took me a bit to catch on to using the SnapScan Manager software. It opens on start-up so its in the dock and on all the time. Turns out, you don't have to pull up the main software and change the preferences, you can just click on the Manager in the Dock and select single page, duplex scan, etc. Makes things much faster.
Summary: After reading all the reviews on the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500m and the NeatDesk Desktop Scanner I decided to order the later. I use an Apple computer with the Lion operating system and thought it would be a better match for my needs. I will write a comment latter after I have had a chance to use the NeatDesk unit. BTW, the NeatDesk unit comes with a 30 day trial period so you can return it if you do not like it.
Summary: Great scanner. Very fast to scan documents however, when scanning photos, some have blue, green, or red lines on the scanned images. Also some have red artifacting on one side like the picture was burned. I exchanged my first one thinking it was a defect but, the second one does it too. Sometimes, if you rotate the picture, it works fine. In either case, it is a great buy especially with Adobe Acrobat Pro 9.
Summary: Purchased the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M and I'm simply loving it. I thought it a bit pricey until I put it to work, it's worth every dime. It is the easiest piece of equipment I've worked with. Scans directly into a WORD document for editing purposes. If you have constant need to edit a scanned document without hassle, this scanner is your solution.
