Paperless, yes please!
on 30 March 2012
I was looking at the Fujitsu Scansnap products as i had them recommended to me, however i saw this scanner mentioned on evernotes forums, and after a bit of research decided this was the scanner for me as it is faster and cheaper than the ScanSnap S1300 and has standard twain drivers and i got a discounted price from amazon.
When i first set it up and installed the software my heart sank as it reported an error on every scan and failed to scan anything, but after a reboot it has been rock solid ever since. the design of this product is spot on and the size of it is dinky. and to scan into Evernote (which is where i wanted my scans to go) this product in my eyes is unbeatable.
the speed of it is fantastic, on its first outing i scanned over 2000 bills that i had lying around the house in less than two hours, all i can tell you is it took longer to shred them than scan them.
towards the end of the mammoth scan task the scanner did double feed the documents, but i removed the feed roller and the seperator pad and washed them as they had accumulated a bit of toner and dust from the paper, and there has been no more double feeds since. the consumables for this scanner are dirt cheap unlike the scansnap consumables and i have already ordered a couple of seperator pads and feed rollers, but i doubt i will need them for a long time.
I love the fact i can just pop in the multi-page bill and hit the start button, and it scans the document performs full OCR and uploads directly into evernote and within 5 minutes i can see the new document on my ipad, it has totally revolutionised my life, no more searching for two hours through all my paperwork for that one bill or document.
i would heartily recommend this scanner to anybody who like me wants to go paperless. its easily one of the best designed products, its not cheap for a scanner but so worth it.
now if only i could line up the scanner so it scans the documents and feeds directly into the shredder :)
