    I missed it when it was gone

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    I've had a Fujitsu ScanSnap since seeing one in use at my doctor's office. I bought it maybe 7 years ago. While re-arranging, I did something really stupid and it accidentally dropped on the floor. I was so angry with myself! I had no idea what to do but I knew having it fixed was probably not an option. What to do?? As luck would have it, I saw a new in box "Neat Desk" scanner at a Goodwill auction. I picked it up for under $100 and thought cool! I thought it would replace my ScanSnap and everything would be all better. I thought wrong. After about a month or two, I was missing my ScanSnap pretty badly. The NeatDesk system confused me; it seemed to require that I go through a bunch of steps to get what I wanted including having the scan go to the site for processing or something and I wasn't comfortable with that. So I used Windows Fax & Scan utility. But it wasn't the same. I made the decision to replace the ScanSnap with a new ScanSnap. I'm so glad I did. The features are easy, setting up WiFi (something the old ScanSnap didn't have) was easy and it's kind of cool that I can put something in the scanner then scan it from another room! I'm totally delighted with my new ScanSnap and recommend it to anybody who wants exceptionally good scans every time. I like that I can set the scan size instead of being limited to one of three sizes like the NeatDesk. It's compact footprint, great range of features AND WiFi are great improvements but the scan quality is probably the best I've ever seen from any scanner including flatbed. I give the Fujitsu ScanSnap a much-deserved five stars for it's awesomeness and affordability.

    Fantastic Scanner!

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    This scanner was recommended on the Simplify Days website. I have two flatbed scanners and this Fujitsu was pricey so I did a lot of research before I took the plunge and bought it. I am so glad I did. I love that I can put a stack of paper in the feeder and the scanner will feed them through smoothly, straightening the image, scanning the backs if needed, and it does it quickly. I started out scanning my taxes this year and it was so simple and quick that I scanned all the prior years I could find. I also used the--not sure what it's called--plastic sheets to feed through small items like receipts. And it's got a small footprint. It's maybe 12x6 inches when the feeder and the catch tray are folded. The software is great and lets me program where to send documents, to my computer or to Evernote. I love this scanner!

    Fast software and dependable hardware

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    This scanner I bought to replace another I have used for about six years. After reading reviews and speaking with others who use the Scan Snap I purchased it and am happy I did. This product is fast to load it's software on my Window 10 platform, fast to scan, and offers a variety of storage and data management options, which the other product did not. I use a cloud service to store data on that I already pay for so haven't added the hidden cost of backup to the product price. I tried the included organizational software to start with (which was easy to use) but switched to a custom filing system which works better for me. This is a great product and a super value for anyone wanting to organize a small business office without spending much money. I give it 5 stars!

    Fast scanner with fast software

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I bought this to replace a scanner with software bundle of another band which I have used for six years. The reason for the switch is the old unit was very slow to process scanned items, and slower yet to do it's cloud backup. That system had an annual fee of over $100 for the cloud backup and storage. That backup is very important in case of catastrophic data loss on the PC. The new scanner can be set up for use with several different configurations possible. I use One Drive to file documents if all types. Scanning, labelling and filing is very fast, and I can burn a backup to BlueRay disk occasionally to enable ultra safe archiving. This scanner and software is a great system to clear the paper clutter and enable remote access to information.

    Outstanding scanner!

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I researched various scanners before making the purchase. The Scan Snap exceeds my expectations (after installation). The only issue I had related to getting started. I downloaded the software and hooked up the unit as suggested but the instructions to actually scan something weren't there. I stumbled across the icon on the task bar, right clicked and then I was ready to start. This scanner is absolutely wonderful. I am scanning tax returns with various sized documents, and the scanner accommodates the various sizes without any issues. I also am moving our household to a paperless environment so I scan almost daily. The device is great. I highly recommend it.

    Easy to use.

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The cost is a little pricey, but I'm very happy I spent the money for a quality scanner. It is easy to use, setup, and takes little space. Originally, I wanted a scanner that could feed 100 pages.; the ScanSnap's feeder only takes 50 pages. But it is easy to add more pages to a document that has already been scanned and it's easy to delete any pages within a document that has been scanned. The software is similar to PowerPoint where the panes are on the left side of the document. This makes it easy to scan more pages in and/or delete pages, because you can click on the pane where you want to add a page and the software will ask "below or above the highlighted page". So far I haven't had any problems.

    Scanner is a Workhorse and Highly Dependable

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I provide IT support to a firm that requires the scanning of multiple documents daily. I have been using the Fujitsu Scanners for the past 7 years and these are flawless. They are simple to install and configure. They scan at a fast rate. The detail is exact. The ability to save a s searchable PDFs is built-in, and we have been quite successful in reducing our paper inventory drastically since we now store only e-copies of the documents after being scanned. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to purchase an extremely dependable, high-speed scanning device that takes up little space.

    Old reliable

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    My original ScanSnap S510 finally died on me after 11 years of faithful service. I didn't think twice about replacing it with the latest model. Frankly, I expected it to be even better. But I can't identify anything that's better. A slightly annoying thing is that the latest version of the ScanSnap Manager app (which I upgraded to when I installed the new scanner) doesn't display the file name of the file you're looking at anywhere (like it used to).
