Product description

Product Description

Designed to speedily digitise documents and facilitate the paperwork of everyone in the office whether directly into a company's business processes, local network or into the cloud
The ScanSnap S1500M is designed to work with Macs and speedily digitise documents for everyone.

A Perfectly Clean Desk

The ScanSnap S1500M 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 S1500M 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.

S1500M scanners are armed with ultrasonic multi-feed sensors to ensure that documents are scanned as intended and data is not lost

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.

It's Not Just a Scanner, it's a Scanning Solution

The ScanSnap S1500M offers you 'total support' from digitisation through to application. No more guesswork defining scanner settings or rescanning your document to get the right results. ScanSnap automatically provides you with the best quality image every time. And to get more productivity from your scanned document, we include a number of software solutions that automatically transform your document into the format you need. Just hit the blue scanning button.

Protect Your Digital Documents from Prying Eyes

ScanSnap S1500M includes Acrobat 9 Professional in the box. Amongst the many features this software provides you (edit your documents, combine files, create fillable forms, etc), you will also be able to create digital IDs and implement password protection to keep confidential documents safe or simply prevent printing or copying it. Keep your confidential information confidential.

A Green Solution

Making it a habit to use the ScanSnap S1500M 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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Without needing to exaggerate, the Fujitsu ScanSnap has totally transformed the way in which we run our offices. Gone are the days of storing stacks of documentation for necessary client record keeping (indefinite) and 6 years of personal finance for HMRC purposes; everything can be scanned away in moments for easy future access.

Some time ago, I purchased a flatbed scanner. Whilst scan quality was good, it was a laboriously slow process to scan documents with the result the scanner was barely used and paperwork piled up. We moved onto an all-in-one scanner, copier, printer and fax but, once again, scanning was not a straight-forward matter and the process was once again neglected. There just did not seem to be sufficient hours in the day to attend to scanning after everything else. A ScanSnap changed all of that.

The ScanSnap is simple to install and operate; double sided documents can be scanned in a batch with single sided (blank pages are automatically ignored, so there is no need to sort beforehand) and even large files with scores of pages are handled with ease. It operates quietly so you can even scan whilst on the telephone should you wish.

The ScanSnap does everything for you and preferences are easily changed for each document:

* single/double sided documents can be scanned in one go without any prior sorting (for mixed batches choose double sided copying as the blank pages will be automatically ignored);

* documents can be scanned in black & white, colour or using auto colour detection (black and white uses up less space than colour; auto colour detection scans a mixture of colour and black & white depending on the document);

* quality of scanning can be refined per batch; i.e.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm impressed with this scanner. It was easy and intuitive to set up: I installed the software on my Mac with only one glitch (at one stage, to proceed, you need to save the licence to disc, or print it - for some reason, I had to try this a couple of times before it would move on), used the installed utility to upgrade to the latest version (around a 75MB download), connected to the scanner with the USB cable, plugged the power in, and it simply worked.

Documents go in top to bottom. It doesn't matter whether they face front or back because this machine scans both sides in a single pass. Press the blue light on the scanner and it scans - very quickly. A popup asks what you want to do with the document - basically save it to a folder or to an application. iPhoto or Mail would be a good option, but it presents others, depending what you have installed: so if for example you want to email a two sided A4 document you can be ready to do that in seconds. It comes with Acrobat too so you can install and use that. The images are crisp and clean, and, to repeat the scanning really is impressively quick.

To switch the scanner off, fold the feed tray down and the bottom tray up (if you see what I mean). It then becomes a very neat little package on the desk, about the size of a couple of normal hardbacks, perhaps. There is a comprehensive user manual (pdf) installed with the software, but no paper version in the box (there are setup instructions for both Mac and Windows).

Overall, a lovely device.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a document scanner primarily aimed at small office/home use for storing papers in electronic format. It might not sound like a particularly exciting device but it is remarkably good as what it does. It will scan loose paper documents very quickly indeed - up to around 20 pages a minute. The scanner is adept at separating each page to be scanned thus preventing paper jams. It auto-adjusts for the size of the page and will scan both sides of a page at once. Indeed it auto-detects if a sheet of paper to be scanned has text/images of both sides. If it doesn't it will only scan the size with information on it. Using a rather clever feeder pouch it is able to scan a folded document twice the size of a standard A4 page and then join the images together.

The scanner can scan in grayscale and colour up to 600 dots per inch, and up to 1,200 dpi in black/white. Bundled with the scanner is scanning software which allows the user to select a variety of scanner settings such as colour mode, dots per inch, single or duplex scanning and more. Linked to the software is Abbyy FineReader allowing searchable PDFs to be created using some of the latest optical character recognition software. Also the scanner comes with Adobe Acrobat 8.

The scanner is operated by a single blue scan button. You simply press this to start scanning when you've placed one or more pages - up to a maximum of 50 - into the paper hopper. SnapScan starts automatically, scans the pages, and asks you what you want to do with the images.
