Customer Reviews of Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 Instant PDF Sheet-Fed Scanner
love my scanner4/1/2013
Does what its supposed to do and more
This will be the 6th Scansnap s1500 I've purchased for our company, This purchase is replacing a brand new $1400 Panasonic that didn't work as fast or have the features we needed.
This little scanner is awesome !5/18/2012
The speed is absolutely blinding - an incredible 20 pages per minute but, because it scans both sides of a page at the same time, double sided documents scan at 40 PAGES PER MINUTE! Wow! As with previous models, this scanner is very small and appears to be well built: it's quite heavy for its small size and fits very nicely on my small computer desk.
Fast, Good quality!!5/9/2012
I have never had a dedicated document scanner before. In the past, I used the Auto-document feeder on my all-in-one printer/scanner/fax machines to scan documents into adobe acrobat. That meant for each batch of papers, I needed to set the color/resolution/paper size/quality settings and then work through Acrobat in order to save each file. It worked, but it was slow going.
This little scanner is awesome!!5/9/2012
My old HP scanner (actually, it wasn't that old) died a few months ago and it was time for me to get a new one. I accidently came across the predecessor to the ScanScap S1500 (the S510) last week while I was having my taxes done and was amazed at the speed and compactness of it. My tax person also gave it glowing reviews. As I wasn't aware that Fujitsu manufactured scanners, I thought I'd do a little research which led me to reviews of the S510 here on Amazon. Rather amazingly, I was very surprised to find that the S510 had so many extraordinarily high reviews (something that I don't believe I come across too often, especially with items such as scanners). One of those reviews mentioned that a new model (this one - the S1500) had just been released by Fujitsu. After some more research (it wasn't yet listed on Amazon), I found that this scanner was available and that it had many new features. As it turns out, I was the "first kid on my block" to acquire one and I'm glad I did! This machine is incredible!

I have never had a dedicated document scanner before. In the past, I used the Auto-document feeder on my all-in-one printer/scanner/fax machines to scan documents into adobe acrobat. That meant for each batch of papers, I needed to set the color/resolution/paper size/quality settings and then work through Acrobat in order to save each file. It worked, but it was slow going. Then I bought this new scansnap 1500, based on the ratings of the earlier model (the scansnap 510). I installed only the main program to my computer (the software also includes OCR programs, organizational programs, and acrobat 9, which I already have). I hooked up the scanner and stuck in a stack of old notes I took from some college courses--some notes were in color, some were b&w, some on two sides, some on one side, and some of the pages were upside down. I hit the only button on the machine (SCAN), and to my sheer amazement, it started flying through the stack of notes without any additional prompts or effort. It then automatically saved my file as a pdf--all of the pages were in order, color pages were in color, b&w pages were in b&w, etc. The only issue I noticed was that if there were any marks whatsoever on the back side of my note papers, it included those blank pages in the file.
I love this scanner. I use it for my home office and it is a life saver. It's fast and scans great. It also scans into 1 PDF vs my old scanner that did one page at a time.
Love, love, love this thing!11/6/2010
I have purchased several of this scanners for my employees and they are great. They scan 2 sided docs at on time and it's fast. It converts the scans in to PDFs automatically. Its a fabulous and a time saver.
Worth every penny and more7/25/2009
If you are getting into keeping all your records on a server this is great. Any hard copies you have are quickly made into pdfs. You can easily name the file and direct to the correct folder. The thing is fast and does both sides at once. It really is better than advertised. No I don't work for the company I work C&S Companies. I purchased it for testing in a Construction Field Office. Lengthy submittals, certs, delivery tickets and all kinds of Docs are quickly turned into pdfs and filed away. Rather than FAX a document you can scan it and send crystal clear copies. You have to use to see how useful it is. It's not like the scanning I've been used to.
Performs as promised5/11/2009
My company has been using this scanner for about a month, primarily for scanning documents to be emailed. It is fast and easy to use- almost everyone I've trained on it has immediately picked it up. Multiple sheets of letter-sized paper go through without issue. Great product.
A Must Have4/29/2009
This is un upgrade from my ScanSnap 300 (mobile) - and it is FAST! Scanning both sides at once is really great and the software included is very comprehensive. It even comes with a copy of Acrobat Standard 9.0. The quality of the scans is better than that of the 300 and again, it is so much faster! I now have scanned all the bills and other statements I had been saving for reference and am using Mozy for backup. I can now retrieve them in a matter of seconds (ScanSnap generates searchable PDF's running OCR). It feels good to finally find what I am looking for, including documents that were burried in the bottom of some box or drawer with the additional peace of mind of having a secure copy in a different location. One problem: It DOES have double feeds and paper jams! A little more than I expected. Expecially when scanning mail. But all in all, it is so fast, even when you feed smaller batches, it is still a very fast process. All in all: a real time and space saver.
Great Product -- Fast Shipping4/10/2009
The first thing I need to say is that this product was delivered to me in approximately 23 hours -- even though I didn't order overnight shipping. Amazing! The scanner arrived and was a snap to install and begin using. The software was easy to install and I was scanning documents within 1/2 of opening the box. I've only used it for one day but am extremely pleased so far.
