Excerpt: The Good Does exactly what it is designed to do. Exceeds expectations. The Bad None There are some basic assumptions that we all make when it comes to scanners: Scanners are horrible; they take up lots of desk space; and they're slow. Document feeder scanners are subject to paper jams, and really, people use them mostly for pictures, because optical character recognition (OCR) doesn't work well.
Pros: Does exactly what it is designed to do. Exceeds expectations.
Excerpt: (1 items) Since we reviewed the original Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner more than two years ago ( ), the ScanSnap has gone through two more incarnations. The latest model, the S510M (the Mac version of this product), improves on the original model’s already good design with faster performance and smarter software. Unlike flatbed scanners made primarily for scanning images, the ScanSnap has a compact, upright design more appropriate for scanning documents.
Pros: Fast, Automatic OCR, Handles small and oversize pages, Automatic two-sided scanning
Cons: OCR software can't keep up with scanner, Fairly expensive, Quick Menu feature doesn't work with Entourage
