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: I'm spoiled. I am a Mac owner and have been since 1985. Needless to say, I have become accustomed to plugging whatever into a mac and have it work. While I may have to load up application software for a given peripheral, I don't hunt around for drivers and whatnot. This brings me to the S300M.
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: Love the scanner. Small footprint. Easy to use right out of the box. Quiet I was really hoping the scanner would be useful for digitizing the stacks of photos I have. I found that intermittently the scanned photos would have a line running down the middle.
Summary: Pros: It works consistently-speed, duplex, color quality, appearance of scan Cons: a little pricey, bulky for travel with a few stops, lacks a powerful system such as Adobe Acrobat Overall: Even though the above checklist seems to have more cons; the consistency and speed really works and trumps the...
Summary: I had been using another more mobile scanner with limited results. The ScanSnap really works well. I'm also using Receipt Wallet to classify all my docs. The smart file options really works well. The only negative is the limited access with Mac due to it not being a twain scanner.
Summary: I am very well pleased with the scanner. The duplex function is great and the capability to add several pages to be scanned at the same time is a good feature. I scanned in over 500 old photos in an hour or so and they all came out great.
Summary: I was using a very slow (and old) Canoscan LiDE 30 flatbed on my iMac and decided that the software was too glitchy and the scanner too slow for doing my monthly scanning of receipts for expense reports.
Just great for home office. Elegant, small, reliable, and a little slow.

Summary: Overall, this is a great scanner for home applications. The design is elegant and very small, about the size of some laser-printer cartridges. It tucks away very easily when not in use. The feeder is reliable. I've had it about three months and have had no problems.
Summary: If you can, go for the 510M, its big brother. This one is smaller, and can be USB powered (if you don't mind the speed divided by 2) if you want a clean desktop. But the footprint of both scanners is nearly the same, speed boost on the 510M makes a huge difference in every day use.
