A Perfectly Clean Desk
The ScanSnap S1500 document scanner combines a classy design with a footprint smaller than an A4 page. With this device, organising your home or office is as easy as pushing a button and removing document from your desk as speedily as 20 pages every minute through a 50 page automatic document feeder. And all of this without sacrificing document quality.
Automated Features for Effortless Scanning
You need to scan different sized documents? Your paper sheet doesn't enter the scanner perfectly straight? You mistakenly entered your document upside down? You hate having to change the colour mode before each scan? You lose too much time removing blank pages after scanning? The ScanSnap S1500 makes you forget about these hurdles and provides files that are the exact replicates of your paper documents.
Do you want to make sure every page is scanned? With our unique ultrasonic multi-feed detection, the scanner will warn you if two or more pages are being fed through the scanner at the same time.
In addition to this, you will be able to cut out a marked article on your newspaper without many steps after scanning. You can also automatically index your scanned documents with selected words on the page. Do you need to scan A3 documents? When using the included carrier sheet, it is possible to scan A3 size documents with an A4 scanner. No post-scanning reworking required.

Protect Your Digital Documents from Prying Eyes
ScanSnap S1500 includes Acrobat X Standard in the box.

A Green Solution
Making it a habit to use the ScanSnap S1500 allows you to throw all your office paper documents away to be recycled and reused. Based on industry estimates, the typical document is copied 9 times. Scan your document once and use the electronic image to reduce clutter and save more trees. The environment is also one of our key concerns when manufacturing the ScanSnap so that we offer you a solution that truly respects the planet.
Top customer reviews
build quality is adequate but not amazing. the amount of papers you can scan at any time is limited by the hopper size, so large wads of paper (eg books) must be split up first. You have to have it tethered to a pc via usb and use the builtin software. there is a scan button on the unit itself, but i would like to see two buttons - "scan" and "scan single sided". by default, it will scan both sides, but some documents have rubbish on the back that you don't want copied. To force, single sided, currently you have to click on the user interface, which is slower than just pressing a button.
after several months of use, it will start to jam on multi-page scans. you can recover from a mid scan jam, but i find it easier to start over. this can be annoying until you realise that you MUST clean the rollers every once in a while. i use isopropyl alcohol, but probably a wet cloth would do if you're careful. it jams because the rollers get coated in dust from papers. this is understandable, so if you're a heavy scanner, remember to clean it, every so often and you'll be ok. I've also noticed occasional vertical colour streaks on images, maybe the image sensor is dying or maybe my cleaning isnt perfect. this would be annoying if i really cared a lot about the images. not enough info on this whether it's my unit or a generic defect or me.
regarding value for money, it's quite expensive, but I've been happy with it. in fact, i'd gladly pay even more for an even better model, however full up heavy duty scanners rocket in price. the copy of acrobat bundled has been useful. if you're on a slow PC, the OCR is very slow. personally, i scan documents to PDF without OCR then OCR those that i want afterwards. this means i can get everything scanned as quickly as possible and it's the speed and ease of this that i recommend with this product rather than all round features.
I've only had it a week and already kicking myself for not buying one sooner. The speed is very impressive and it seems to carve through huge amounts of documents in a very short time. I realise how much time I have wasted procrastinating over a purchase.
I'm now enthusiastically scanning all the 'just in case' documents that clutter everyone's homes. Rather than use the supplied software I am scanning into Microsoft OneNote which was already my information repository of choice. Using the 'Print to OneNote' facility it works very well indeed and OCR's and indexes all the content without any intervention from me. A good tutorial here: [...]
The odd document jams, but they in invariably the ones that I took a risk with and hoped would be OK, eg torn edges. It doesn't like A3 pamphlets folded to A4.
However, all damaged and the A3 folded docs all go through OK in the supplied carrier.
I've even tried some 7x5 photos and they scanned well without the marking that some people report.
As the title says...I wish I had bought one sooner.
It's size is also a surprise. Having been used to the large footprint of a flatbed scanner, it is fantastic to have something no bigger than a loaf of bread on my desk.
So a happy customer here - if you have a large quantity of documents and limited storage space, then this is ideal.
I have not purchased a second ScanSnap because of any fault with the original. I just have two different offices and decided that it was preferable to have a ScanSnap in each rather than save scanning up to be done at only one location. My 'older model' ScanSnap is still working fine.
The S1500 is just as easy to set up and then use as the S510. All you have to do is place the item that you want to scan into the hopper, make sure it is face down, press a button and then most of the rest is handled by the software. Altering the image quality (and thus the amount of space each scan will use) is also straightforward and it is also easy to scan into a word document that will allow you to edit the text (something that I never managed to master with previous scanners).
A4 documents (and smaller things like cheques) are very straightforward scans; A3 items are also a breeze, although these items need to be folded and placed inside a (supplied) holder, which can be slightly awkward to start with as the folded edge needs to sit precisely at the edge of the holder or you end up with a gap in the middle of the scanned document (if the edge is too far inside the holder) or missing text (if the edge is outside). This does not take long to master.
The obvious difference between the S510 and the S1500 is actually a redesign of the body of the scanner. The newer S1500 has a more angular appearance and the 'scan' button is illuminated in blue (which is very nice). Otherwise the mechanics appear to be much the same so, if you are weighing up the pros/cons of the S510 vs S1500 I would tend towards the S1500 as the newer model but otherwise go for whichever is the cheapest option.
