Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 reviews (75 reviews)
1. rachel obrien, Airbridge International Agencies Ltd
Scanner easy to set up and great working with our new Xero Accounting system.
2. Julia Nicholls, Nicholls Law Group Ltd
Great scanner, works straight out of the box.
Compact, and clearly faster than my previous model S510. Would recommend it without hesitation.

It arrived promptly as stated.
I am extremely pleased with this scanner. It is quick, quiet and delivers as promised. Top marks!!!
5. harry jeffs, jeffs& Co
So easy to install\r\nSo easy to use\r\nPrice is competitive\r\nNo problem with double sided and rotation\r\nJust sort your folders out beforehand and the scanning is as simple as can be.\r\nShould have bought it ages ago\r\n
6. Gabriel Crommelin
Love it, very efficient indeed. Using it primarily to scan old photos and it does a great job.
7. Adrian Brown, A B Compliance Limited
I have used this for less than 1,000 scans but it has worked well. I like the fact that it takes up very little space on my desk, especially when shut. The deskewing works well as does the option not to scan blank pages. I would have given it 5 stars but opening the app by right clicking whereas all the others on the task bar require a left click takes getting use to and, more importantly I find the interface that pops up old fashioned and not that intuitive. For example for deskewing you have to click on the options button which is on the scanning tab screen that appears after you have opened Scan button settings. Otherwise a great little machine and would certainly buy again.
8. Trevor Harris, Harris Heating
Great piece of technology, took some technical knowledge to install as we don't have a disk drive on our Mac but up and running now and when coupled with receipt bank saves a lot of time and effort.\r\nWould recommend this to any business big or small
9. Elbrus Seiidov , E.S.building contractors Ltd
Absolutely great tool, quick dispatch and great communication
10. George Tilley, Leweston Farm LLP
Delivered as expected the next day.\r\nI can only compare with my old Canon scanner but this machine is excellent. I have tried it on custom settings (but like modern digital cameras) it's as good as it comes left on auto.\r\nIt's fast, auto sensing of colour & it minimised file sizes. Great.\r\nBe aware that it lacks drivers. No probs with my FileCentre software but that could be a problem for others.

Fast Double-sided Scanning via GI Processor

The ScanSnap iX500 can achieve impressive speeds of 25 pages per minute (single or double sided) at up to 600dpi in black and white or up to 300 dpi in colour, the inbuilt GI processor ensures that these speeds are achieved independant of the target device or connectivity. Additionally such a paper feeding performance is enhanced through USB 3.0 support and the use of Brake Rollers which are traditionally the reserve of higher end machines.

Advanced Paper Detection

ScanSnap iX500 is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor that can be turned on to help operators avoid losing images. What’s more, an interactive interface allows users to easily bypass intentional double- feeds such as a taped-receipt on expense report.

The bundled Nuance software allows users to read directly from cloud based applications and to save directly to those cloud based applications meaning that the possibility of using and sharing digital documents is extended. In case documents are intended to be managed locally, ScanSnap Organizer will provide an ideal repository. This application plays an increasingly important role in the ScanSnap eco system, especially when additionally utilising the recently introduced ScanSnap Sync functionality, which allows for cross linkage from the ScanSnap Connect App to for example Dropbox, to Nuance Power PDF or to ScanSnap Organizer.

Scan via WiFi to your PC and Mac and also your smart devices

The ScanSnap iX500 is fitted with a newly developed GI processing engine which means that users can now experience wireless operation of their scanner via a compatible Smart Device and the ScanSnap Connect Application downloadable from the Apple App store, Amazon App Store or Google Play.
