If you need to use a desktop scanner regularly, you want it fast, and easy to operate.

Fujitsu's new ScanSnap S1500 correspond to what most people's standards and even the exception of a few.
The price the buyer appeal to small businesses, ScanSnap S1500 may be smaller than many of your expectations, because it is a sheet rather than a planar device. It also folds in when not in use, the document scanner 50 directly under the load to open the top, and a catch tray Likewise, fold the bottom. In between is a two-sided scanner that can scan up to 20 pages (40 sides) per minute, there are ultrasonic detectors to identify and to remind the operators that any erroneous information.
The installation of about 20 minutes. A USB port and cable provided to connect the host with the Apple Mac and Windows versions of these two basic scanning ship applications and tools in order to save the results in various formats and print, fax or e-mail results. In the Windows scanner we are trying to have the full copy of Adobe Acrobat 9, together with the use of ABBYY FineReader optical character recognition conversion, coupled with a program, allowing direct scanning to Microsoft SharePoint.
The only control the scanner is a big, blue button. Load your document, press the button, they are quickly back to the scanner and again. The way forward on the extent of the host software engineering of each page with the color. It can also compensate for any eccentricity, and then can be saved as a PDF, select the text converted to editable format, it goes without saying.

Scanned documents can be converted to Word, Excel or PowerPoint format, along with the tools you (CardMinder 4.0) extraction and management of information to scan the business card data.

Of course, a drawback of the scanner sheet types and sizes of paper, it can handle. Books and magazines are not free, but the S1500 to cope with a variety of documents other than A4 size and weight requirements. This includes business cards, documents up to A3, which need to fold into a special carrier sheet. Unfortunately, this last choice is not easy, if you need to scan a large number of documents, and then more, scanner platform will be a better choice.
Another drawback is the lack of a TWAIN / ISIS driver which means that you can not use the scanners and document management software, in addition to Fujitsu's own Rack2 - declaration, trial version, including in the box.
