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.
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

Just hit the blue scanning button.

Protect Your Digital Documents from Prying Eyes
ScanSnap S1500M includes Acrobat 9 Professional in the box.

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.

The included SnapScan Manager application allows you to select the Application to which you'd like the scan sent; options are Scan to Folder, EMail, Word, Excel, Cardiris (included), iPhoto, and Evernote (as document or note). Evernote integration is available in the latest version of the software that can be downloaded from the web. I am using the scanner with DevonTHINK Office Pro, which interfaces directly to it and allows PDFs to be imported into it's database without using the default SnapScan quick menu. The scanner includes OCR software should that be required, both DevonTHINK and Evernote include OCR software as an option so I'm not using that at present.
I purchased the scanner to work towards a more or less paperless world. I am planning to scan all bills, statements, invoices and other important documents and store them in the DevonTHINK database or Evernote. This scanner does appear to be the perfect tool for the job, scanning double sided documents quickly and without fuss. I wouldn't recommend it for scanning photographs, for that task a simple, less expensive, flat bed scanner would be sufficient.
Overall this has exceeded my expectations and, due to it's size, will fit easily into any available workspace with being imposing, perfect for the minimalist home office. It's expensive but, like Macs, you get what you pay for in end.
The scans are beautifully clear - clients are commenting on the clarity, the scanner takes up an improbably small space and I'm a very happy Mac user.
I've never used a Fujitsu product before and would have been sceptical of their ability to produce such a Mac friendly product, so thanks for the reviews for helping me take the plunge and buy.
It's expensive, but it really is a lovely thing and well worth it. Don't compromise with something cheaper. You won't regret buying this.
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. you can decide what level of detail you need in the finished article and select accordingly; lower quality scanning (perfectly acceptable for most documents except those with pictures) will use up less space and scan faster than higher quality settings;
* the option to select continuous scanning to the same file (useful if you have a large file that cannot be accommodated in the hopper in one batch; tick a box and the ScanSnap will automatically ask whether you wish to continue to scan after the first batch of paper has gone through or if you have finished for that particular document when it will finalise the document). This will allow you to scan several hundred pages to one file rather than have to spend time subsequently merging files together.
* All of which functionality is stored within a smart looking piece of office equipment that takes up a very small amount of space on your desk!
What used to take hours to scan can now be finalised in a fraction of the time; something that always represented a chore is now an enjoyable experience (yes, really), which enables documents to be archived quickly and easily and the original paperwork to be disposed of. It is one of those pieces of equipment that once used, you really will wonder how you ever managed without, whether used in an office environment or simply just to organise your own financial paperwork.
