Wi-Fi or USB Connection to a PC or Smart Device

The iX500 comes with a built-in, dual-core "GI" image processing engine that takes ScanSnap to the next performance level. It offers the paper feeding performance of expensive high-speed, high-volume devices, enhanced through USB 3.0 support, at a price that won't break your office budget. Or you can break free from USB and place the ScanSnap just about anywhere in the room with Wi-Fi connectivity to a PC or Mac. The iX500 now offers the unique ability to link directly with your iPad, iPhone, and Android devices via a Wi-Fi connection. Fitted with a newly-developed GI processing engine, the iX500 means that users can now wirelessly operate the scanner via their smart device and the ScanSnap ConnectApp to create high quality scanned images that can be saved to the device, manipulated and retrieved at a later date and distributed.

ScanSnap Carrier Sheets

Use of a carrier sheet enables iX500 users to digitize larger documents (A3/B4), as well as magazine and newspaper clippings and photographs. Such document containing carrier sheets can be scanned successively or mixed in with regular paper documents.

Intuitive Quick Menu and ScanSnap Folder for Flexible Operation

The Quick Menu can be set up to display your 'Favorite' scanning destinations or will 'Recommend' an application. For example, scan a business card which will then be automatically recognized and a list of business card-related applications will be recommended. Does your Windows application have an import or browse command? If so you can now easily scan directly to this application even when no scanning interface is available assuming it supports .pdf or .jpg. Simply browse to the new 'ScanSnap Folder' within your local computer, hit the blue scan button, and your document will then be automatically imported into your application and then deleted from 'ScanSnap Folder'.

Generate Editable PDF Files

The ScanSnap iX500 comes bundled with Adobe Acrobat X Standard (for Windows only), which enables users to move beyond merely "seeing" and "printing" generated data, to editing generated PDF files however they like. It generates password and digital ID attached PDF files that are ideal for safeguarding personal information and other confidential information that needs to be protected.

Scan with ease and access your documents anywhere, anytime.
Seamless Linking to Cloud Services

The iX500 offers direct interaction with your cloud service allowing you to access your documents from any device and at any time or anywhere, the iX500 supports direct scanning to Evernote, Dropbox, Google Docs, Salesforce, and SugarSync.

Bundled Software Scans and Organizes Business Card Information
  • Scans large volumes of business cards into digital business card holders
  • Enables you to enter scanned data into Excel, Outlook Express, Salesforce, and other databases for future reference

*** UPDATED ***
I've been using the previous model, the ScanSnap S1500 for almost 4 years now. I liked it so much that I bought a second one. To me, it completely transformed the concept of going paperless: from painful and time consuming to cool and even fun. If you have used a regular flat-bed scanner trying to go paperless, you probably know what I mean. I feel your pain. And this is coming from a hardcore paperless guy since 2001. Back then there weren't that many options.

If you are reading these reviews, you probably already know that the S1500 is currently (January 2013) pretty much the gold standard in the automatic document feeder (ADF) scanner consumer market with excellent user friendly software, pretty fast, reliable, built like a tank, excellent optical quality and on top of that you get the standard version of Adobe Acrobat (worth alone >$100). Not that it is a cheap scanner but compared to other consumer-grade ADF scanners it is a good deal, and like most things in life, you get what you pay for. It is one of those rare pieces of electronics that *just work*. It makes something relatively complicated extremely easy. Also wanted to point out that those all-in-one scanner/copier/printers, etc. are just Ok in my honest opinion. Their relatively low price is very tempting however, from experience they are "jack of all trades, master of none". They are no competition for this scanner, not at all!

That said, I bought the iX500 as soon as I learned it was available on Amazon. It was hard to believe the S1500 could be improved but hey, even as a geek myself technology never cease to amaze me. Well, I've been playing with the scanner for two days so I will give you my first impressions.

I'll start out by saying that I've been the proud owner of a Fujitsu S1300 scanner for the past two years. I have gone almost completely paperless at home through a combination of scanning to Evernote and Dropbox and haven't looked back since. The quality and convenience of my previous scanner was unmatched over the last couple years, but there had always been some items on my wish list.
Enter the iX500

I really believe this to be the end-all-be-all as far as scanners is concerned. I'll try to go through this review in a logical fashion.

I actually received this unit on the first day it was released due to a connection I had (always love to be one of the first to have something). Bringing it home and unpacking it was familiar as this is my 3rd Fujitsu scanner (s1300 and s1300i for my parents) and setup was straight-forward. The install file on my MacBook was large, as usual, but took little time and was up and running. One of the main features/draws for this product was the wireless ability which I'll go into more detail later, but was easy to get setup. Overall took less than 10 minutes to start scanning. Nothing exciting.

Initial Impressions
This thing is FAST. I never had a complaint about the speed of my s1300 or especially the s1300i, but holy cow, this thing scans documents like it's going out of style. Even at full resolution color on both sides it is hard to keep up with it.
Secondly, this is by far an improvement over the s1300 in the aesthetics category. It looks like a very high end piece of AV equipment or something. So far my wife has not even attempted to make me move it off the kitchen counter where it currently resides. When folded up it is very unobtrusive and is very unassuming.

This is the most effusive review I've ever written. This product will blow you away.

I've had it only one week. So far I've cleaned out over 250 pounds of paper files from my once-clogged office. Everything is now filed in Evernote. It's backed up locally and in the cloud - and instantly searchable and accessible.

I've had Neat Receipts for years. Gave it up after losing 5 months of receipts (poof - gone). When looking for another solution I stumbled into the Fujitsu S1500 and it's rabid following (they are like groupies - and now I see why). After a ton of additional research (check out the many YouTube videos and reviews here on Amazon), I was about to order the 1500....then...

As I was about to buy it, Fujitsu announced this new machine; the iX500. It's not inexpensive, but based on the strong recommendations for its predecessors, I took the plunge. Amazon did not even have a picture of it up yet - but they took the order and shipped a few days later.

The product LOOKS great. It's small - amazingly small - about the same footprint as an old personal fax machine. It's sleek and it's almost silent. Most all - it's FAST. Blazing. 25 page per minute.

Look at that shelf behind you. The one will all those binders from those conferences you attended. You know you'll never read those things...but you can't throw them out, can you? I scanned over 3,000 pages of journals and binders. Throwing them out felt GREAT. I have the space back, and now can search through any of those once-dusty tomes instantly.

Receipts. What receipts? That huge box of them that was getting bigger by the day...All gone. Scanned into the system. Tagged, sorted, filed and ready for tax season.

Staples are EVIL. Make sure there are none in your docs.
