Ease of Use

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.

A Must Have

by dan on 4/29/2009

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.

Product Overview

The ScanSnap S1500 provides Windows® users an effective way to greatly reduce paper clutter, storage space, and security risk associated with unmanaged paperwork at home or office. Even better, documents scanned by ScanSnap take on a higher level of accessibility and usefulness once liberated into the digital realm.

Compact Color Duplex Scanner for Microsoft ® Windows
  • One button searchable PDF creation
  • Intelligent paper feed detection
  • Blazing 20ppm color scanning
  • 50-page Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)
  • Comes with Adobe® Acrobat® 9 Standard

    Easily Transform Paper with the Touch of a Button
    Organizing with the ScanSnap S1500 happens at the touch of a single button. All this intelligent technology working behind the scenes ensures your PDF or JPEG files look their best automatically.

    Intelligent Speed
    There's speed and then there's speed with quality. The ScanSnap S1500 has been engineered to deliver even faster performance with up to 20 pages per minute in color, grayscale, or black & white; however, S1500 remains just as fast when scanning at a higher resolution of 200 and even 300 dpi color or grayscale.

    Intelligent Ease of Use
    ScanSnap S1500 has several automatic features to help ensure scans look their best without operator intervention before or after they scan.

  • Auto Color, Black & White and now, Grayscale detection
  • Auto Page Size Detection
  • Auto Crop and De-skew
  • Auto Content-based Rotation
  • Auto Quality: ScanSnap S1500 can now be set to detect small documents intermixed in a stack placed into the automatic document feeder and automatically increase their resolution to help ensure that the finer-print typically associated with smaller documents (such as receipts and business cards that are shorter than A6) are made more discernable.

    Intelligent Paper Feed Detection
    ScanSnap S1500 is now equipped with an ultrasonic multi-feed detection sensor that can be turned on to help operators avoid losing images. What's more, an interactive interface allows users to easily and quickly bypass intentional double-feeds such as a taped-receipt on an expense report.

    Intelligent Software
    Quick Menu: Operators can create their own profiles or quickly access all the powerful features of ScanSnap from the centralized Quick Menu. Just scan and choose a function to quickly transition from one scanning intention to the next.

    ScanSnap Organizer 4.0: View, manage, and edit PDF and JPEG files scanned with ScanSnap on a windows platform. Organizer allows users to convert scanned PDF files into searchable content, embed custom keywords, distribute to email or SharePoint, and remain productive with paperwork long after it is scanned.

    Adobe® Acrobat® 9 Standard: ScanSnap users can move beyond merely "seeing" and "printing" PDF documents to searching and editing them however they like and Adobe® Acrobat® 9 Standard supports password protection and digital ID creation, ideal for safeguarding personal and confidential information on PDF files.

    ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap 4.0 PC Edition: Windows users can now achieve even greater productivity by converting paperwork into editable text by scanning directly into Microsoft® Word and Excel at the touch of a button.

    CardMinder 4.0: ScanSnap S1500 quickly scans loads of business cards, extracts the contact information, and places it into editable fields that can be exported to Excel, Outlook, and other contact managers.

    Advance Exchange Service Program Maximizes Your Scanner's Uptime
    The ScanSnap S1500 scanner is covered by a one-year Limited Warranty.
