Automated Features for Effortless Scanning

I bought it with some trepidation - thinking "could it really be that good?". Well, I am delighted to say that it is! Staggeringly small - and really, really simple to use. Works seamlessly with Evernote service - linked with this you get an excellent searchable database of documents scanned in (Evernote do the OCR bit). Totally recommended.
I looked at a variety from the simple, small USB powered models (like those from Doxie, HP and Canon) to something more substantial. I realised that I wanted a couple of key features - duplex and a feed. Small USB devices are all very well but they are slow and man-draulic. That might be OK if you just scan the occasional item but I get a reasonable amount of mail and receipts and have two filing drawers desperate to commit shredder suicide. The ScanSnap 1300 does require its own power supply but folds up into a small discreet package and stood clearly apart as the compromise product that made the least number of compromises.
Of course, hardware is only one aspect and software can ruin everything in a nano-second. As a Mac user, I was delighted to see a fully capable set of software - though for Lion support I had to go back to the website to get the latest and greatest. At some point, this will come in the pack of course. As a bit of a tech head I was impressed with how much I can customise the scans being taken and where they end up. The OCR is also fantastically good having come on leaps and bounds since my last miserable encounter with the stuff. The good news for regular users is that there are some sensibly specified defaults so you don't need to go deep if you don't want to (but you should work out which profile to use to force high resolution scans for the occasionally poor auto-choices). I also liked the fact that there's something of a community sprung up on the web.Read more ›
Its scan function is excellent and there are just so many options that you can then do afterwards. Scan to Folder, Word, Excel, E-mail and Powerpoint to name a few. This is ideal for work and I would recommend it if you are looking to purchase a scanner
After spending lots of hours scanning my documents page by page on a flatbed scanner of a multifunctional printer, I decided that it was not worth the hours spent and I should buy a dedicated scanner to do the job... Many thousands of pages were waiting, both A4 and B5 size and if I needed about 1 minute per page, it would be countless hours theft from my personal time...
So I checked around, and fell on this video on youtube:
[...] (Introducing the New Mobile ScanSnap S1300)
That was it! Small, effective, it promised to do the job fast and without hassles.
So I ordered it from Amazon.co.uk and only one week after (for delivery to Greece, and not the capital but a somewhat distant island like Zakynthos - well done Amazon once again!!! ) it was in my hands.
Out of the box, I insert the CD in my PC, trouble-free install the software, and I am ready to go!
I have to tell you: I am a school teacher so i have both many (too many actually) books that i want to digitize (I have cut them into piles of pages, so that I don't do it page by page on a photocopier or flatbet scanner), and also I have some thousands of handwritten pages of material that I wanted to preserve!
So I started right away! I took a book cut into pages from the pile, put it on my desk and gave it a go!
Firstly I tried to find the best settings for my scannings, which also proved to be very easy to do. A single and simple window with all available choises was there and it was not more that a couple of minutes of experimenting before I find my best setting...Read more ›
I was blown away by the completeness of the solution and immediately followed suit.
Being space constrained, I opted for the S1300 trusting other reviews that said it would still perform well. The truth of the matter is that it's great. It deals with multi-page scans and whips them through at quite a pace. It's such a tiny compact unit that I hardly notice it under my desk.
I'm running it on a Mac. Software installation was painless and once the scanner is connected - scanning your documents is as simple as sticking your documents in at the top and then pressing a button on the unit. I've set my ScanSnap software to integrate with the Evernote application so one copy of my scanned document goes to the Evernote cloud and another is held locally on my network (NFS export on a storage unit). It appears that you can save the scanned documents in a number of formats but I use PDF. ScanSnap allows them to be searchable and for you to apply keyword tags. Very complete.
There are some other elements that appear to work well. The scanner is double sided - yet appears to remove whitespace (blank pages) and can do a certain amount of alignment or orientation correction.
I can't complain about it at all. I'm currently working my way through mounds of paper that have been crowding the dark corners of my house. Soon, 95% of it will be in the shredder.
