Summary: I bought this scanner in 2008 to use in my truck for my business. It is a bit beat up, but the darn thing still works like a champ with my MacBook Pro. If you need a scanner, look to Fujitsu, I have one of their desktop models too for my office, the Mac 5100 version.
Summary: I don't think I've ever written a review for a product before in my life. That alone should say volumes about this scanner. It's outstanding. I just scanned hundreds of sheets in a few minutes, and the Scansnap compiled them all into a single convenient PDF document. What a huge time saver.
Summary: I noticed how there are many reviews complaining about snow leopard support. Fortunately, Fujitsu has fixed this issue by now. My only complaint about snow leopard support would be that I had to go to a separate website to download and install the update.
Summary: When I was a very young lawyer when I would go to depositions I would invariably take the whole file with me. Trial bags, big boxy things with handles were stuffed with paper, most which would never be needed.
Summary: I love this scanner. Scan to file is my favorite, because you can scan, save and name every file in no extra-time. Cardiris is a good idea but, if you have a big pile of hundreds of business cards (suppliers, clients, any contact) you have a lot of work to do.
Summary: Scanners and I go way back. I've always considered scanners to be one of the little necessary evils some of us deal with while others simply refuse to. Those that choose to learn to use a scanner end up scanning documents for those lazy people we all know.
Summary: Please note that this scanner DOES now work with Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6) Fujitsu has released an update to the ScanSnap software, which can be found on their website: [...] I'm just thrilled with how easy this scanner is to use, and how fast it is!
Summary: I love this scanner. The hardware would easily get 6 stars. The software, unfortunately as with many scanner and printer products, is not so Mac like. I would really love to be able to use this directly from within Apple's Image Capture or Preview apps in Snow Leopard instead, but that's not...
Summary: I bought this scanner for my wife and her school work. It is soooo easy to set up and use right out of the box that my wife hasn't asked me to show her how to use it since the first time. Wow!
