Only one feature short of 5 stars

Max Wild, Amazon

  • Summary: The is a great scanner for converting documents to pdf. However, only has color and b&w options, no grayscale. If you have grayscale documents to scan, this is a major limitation.

Almost Great

Techno-Cruiser, Amazon

  • Summary: A fast document scanner like this one can be a huge help in organizing your life. Six months ago, the S510 was about the only game in town for a reasonable price. Now, there may be better options, especially for rather heavy-duty users like me.

Not for anything other than sheets of copy paper

Christopher Wanko, Amazon
5 February 2008
  • Summary: For the price of the product, and the advertised speeds and functions, you'd think all of your printed material could be fed into this scanner. You'd be wrong. Snapshots will jam in this device. You are locked into Fujitsu's software for scanning.

About so-so

Brian M Wise, Amazon
5 February 2008
  • Summary: To be fair, I use this as a work scanner, primarily. When I came to the company I work for now, there was a large amount of legacy documentation that was contained in binders that I wanted to add to searchable PDFs for client download. Makes sense, right?

Only pdf's

Landon Comer, Amazon
5 February 2008
  • Summary: I dont think it's a bad product it just wasn't useful for what I needed it for. The office software we use has to be able to scan in JPEG format. This scanner only scans in PDF. So it wouldn't work for us.

Overall good for what it does but a bit pricey and does not do BW pic well.

E. Choo, Amazon

  • Summary: It does its job. Really fast. Scan well on color pages but not black and white pictures. There were several pictures from a fashion magazine I wanted to keep so I scanned it in and it turn out really bad.

Expensive, fast with mediocre document feeder

Big Husky, Amazon
5 February 2008
  • Summary: This scanner is unbelievably fast, scans both sides at the same time and is accordingly priced more expensive to many other solutions. So far the most disappointing item is the Document Feeder which more often than not is causing multiple pages to be pulled in (no matter how much time and care you...

Great document scanner except for feeding problems

E. Hudson, Amazon

  • Summary: I just set up and tried out this scanner yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised first by it's small size. Then by the speed and ease of use. It is capable of double side, color scanning with OCR. I scanned a couple stacks of bills in color. It was very fast.

No driver support for OS 10.6 and Win 7 !

PantsOnFire, Amazon
5 February 2008
  • Summary: I have both the Mac and Win version of this scanner. As of 11-05-09 there is still no driver for Mac OS 10.6. This is critical since major functionality is compromised. Fujitsu's advice: "Reinstall OS 10.5." Incredible. As of this same date there is still no driver for Win7 either.

Get a TWAIN comptable scanner instead

Critic, Amazon
5 February 2008
  • Summary: I have a Mac computer, which I used to archive scanned documents. Although it works with a Mac computer very well, it uses proprietary drivers, which are incompatible with many archiving programs.
