SCANSNAP S510M CLR 600 DPI USB - 2.0 A3 50PG ADF DOCUMENT SCANNER - MAC Compatible

Amazon.com

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M Instant PDF Sheet-Fed Scanner for Macs lets you easily convert your paper archives into a searchable digital library of PDFs. With an easy one-touch PDF creation process, nothing could be simpler: The scanner will automatically distinguish between color documents and black and white ones, automatically recognize the size of each page, automatically straighten images, and automatically delete blank pages. Included are an automatic document feeder and the ability to scan in duplex mode, enabling the ScanSnap to scan at up to 18 pages per minute. The ScanShop uses a USB 2.0 (USB 1.1 compatible) interface for wide compatibility and fast data connection. The ScanSnap supports Mac OS X 10.2.8, 10.3, and 10.4 and includes a copy of Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional and a copy of ABBYY FineReader.

The scanner uses two color CCDs for scanning at an optical resolution of up to 600 dpi. The scanner-supported size range includes A4, A5, A6, B5, B6, business cards, letter, legal, and custom sizes from a minimum of 2 by 2 inches to a maximum of 8.5 by 14.17 inches. Even though it scans paper of all sizes, the scanner itself has a compact angular design that takes less space on your desktop than a letter-size piece of paper. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M is backed by a 1-year warranty.

What's in the Box

Clutter, paper, filing cabinets are the things I hate most about my office and now, those things are going away thanks to this little device!
Bruce P. Morin
Software that comes with it is very nice (Acrobat 8.0) and Cardiris which all work on the Mac.

I just received this scanner. I've been collecting a stack of documents to scan and finally ran out of excuses with its arrival. I settled in for a long evening of unpleasantness. I put the first batch of 6 pages into the hopper, pressed the Scan button expecting a sloooowww, painful grind. But....? Each sheet whipped through effortlessly! Both sides of the double sided sheets scanned on a single pass! Everything was oriented correctly and automatically and the legibility was excellent. How did they DO this? I'm used to scanning taking so long I continually forget what I'm doing before I'm done. This is a whole new experience. Suddenly, I'm seeing the real possiblity of reducing all my file cabinets to a few CDs in my lifetime. Wow.

This is about my 5th scanner (HP, Epson previously) but the very first one to take the agony out of scanning. And it's such a cute little machine. I never would have believed it could accomplish such a masterful job. It also handles legal sized documents - you fold the document in half, it scans both sides at once and marries them back together!

Thank heavens they brought this out for the Mac.

I am using this scanner mainly for food magazines. I have plans to make everything digitalized and then setup a computer in the kitchen. Anyway, I have a stack of magazines in hand. When I finished setting up the scanner, put a page in, press the Scan button on the machine... I kid you not, it took less than 5 seconds for the piece of paper to go through the scanner. At first I was like "is it doing some kind of warm up?" But then I saw on my computer screen that it's actually processing the scan... WOW. The quality was superb. It's just amazing.

OK, let's run it through the OCR. I wasn't sure what to expect. You know magazine pages have all sorts of images and texts and they're all overlapping each other. Anyway, it came out perfect, I mean, perfect. I don't know how these guys managed to do that. Although I have to say the color of the page after being OCRed is a bit degraded, but not very noticeable.

So I started tearing up the whole magazine, removing all the ad pages, and it became about 60 sheets / 120 pages. Stack them all up, hit the scan button. Man, that was SO effortless. I carefully torn out the pages so that the rugged sides were not too bad. I did have to sit next to the scanner to catch the pages coming out from it, because from time to time the rugged edges would cling onto each other and pushes the whole pile to the floor. Whatever, I can spare 2 mins doing that. I set it to OCR directly after scanning, so I can just walk away afterwards.

I also used the Acrobat Pro to remove any more ad pages that were included in duplex scanning.

The whole experience was surreal. This little cute machine gives home scanners a completely new definition. It makes all other less expensive scanners expensive, in terms of the time you save, and plus the software you get. Remember, you're receiving a copy of Acrobat Pro, not just Standard.

Verified Purchase
I have used the product for little over a month now with Apple Mac OS X Leopard. The first impulse I felt after seeing this ScanSnap in action was to get all my documents out of the drawer, scan them all and dispose off the space robbing file folders/boxes or whatchamacallit! It's one of the best investments I have made. It works flawlessly. It gives new meaning to the word "ease of use"! The inclusion of Adobe Acrobat 8 (not yet fully/officially supported on Leopard but so far works fine) itself is worth the price. Fujitsu seems to have understood very well the concept of "elegance in simplicity" so much espoused by Apple in its products and philosophy. This is one of those products where you can't think of anything to add to make it better!

This thing is amazing. My paper organization is completely divided into "before scanner" and "after scanner". I'm able to find any important document or financial statement I've received since getting the scanner; or rather - I can find the scanned version. The paper copy just goes in a big box to be stored for 7-8 years (for tax purposes).

The ScanManager software is great. It has a bunch of features, but ignore most of them. The best part is just to set it to "Scan to file" which means that it gets completely out of your way and just leaves PDF files in a folder on the disk ("Scan to folder" inexplicably makes you do a lot more work).

The included software can convert your documents to text - or more accurately add the text to the otherwise image-only PDF files. I don't use it though, it's pretty slow and makes the files A LOT bigger. For me just organizing the files by year and type ("banking", "taxes", "expense", "contracts") does the job. The scanner also comes with Adobe Acrobat Professional, but I strongly recommend that you just use OS X 10.5 (Leopard). The "QuickLook" feature and the improvements in the Preview PDF viewer are perfect for the job of quickly organizing, doing light editing (remove unneeded pages for example) or looking through many pdf files.

Another recommendation: Look into JungleDisk to backup your important documents. It will store them securely on Amazons servers with their S3 service and it's incredibly cheap. I have a thousand PDF files stored now and I pay less than a dime a month for that.

The footprint of the scanner is great when it's folded up; it will easily fit on your desk. The user interface is also just about perfect: Open it up to turn it on. Press the button to scan.
