Fujitsu ScanSnap


For a while I was looking for a dedicated scanner which can perform a multitude of scanning tasks in all forms of papers. It connects directly to a computer and not a network scanner, there are other models which are network oriented from the same family. In my case I tried the S1500 and it is very efficient, scanning all forms of documents directly to pdf, integration into Quicken or Outlook depending on what you need, if its business cards, personal bills, or taxes.

The S1300 is portable, fast, light, efficient and costs $250. If your looking for something a little bit more heavy duty there is the S1500 which is shockingly fast, scanning 20 pages a minute, and if its double sided 40 pages a minute. At $450 the S1500 is the bigger brother with the extra features. And it comes to build quality the reviews of all the models in the Fujitsu ScanSnap speak wonders of them. If you scan a lot and like having all your documents digitized then this is a scanner for your needs at a decent price.
