10 December 2008
Conclusion: It’s a bit on the expensive side yes, but I think it’s well worth it for the features it gives you, and for the fact that it is very portable and of course easy to use.
Pros: Small, Lightweight, Well made, Includes easy to use software, Scans business cards and imports to contacts, Fairly accurate OCR, Double sided scanning!, Easy to use, Creates PDFs instantly, Relatively quiet, Dual power, USB or AC
Summary: Fujitsu's ScanSnap S300M takes the technology from the company's well-received desktop document scanners, such as the ScanSnap S510M, and puts it into a device that's easier to carry from location to location.
Excerpt: Fujitsu’s ScanSnap S300 is the cutest, most minimalist sheetfed scanner ever. It’s so perfectly tiny and well-proportioned that the snaking USB cable actually made me feel nervous and uncomfortable. Shouldn’t it use Bluetooth, or something? Catch that about the document feeder?
Pros: Decent software. Munchkin-small. Scans both sides of paper. Sheetfed. Scans with extraordinary quickness at low DPI.
Cons: Doesn’t work on Macs. Maximum 600dpi. Needs 2 USB ports without AC. Good lord, nearly three hundred bucks? Really?
