5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny, April 19, 2009
This review is from: Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M Instant PDF Sheet-Fed Scanner for the Macintosh (Office Product)
I've scanned approximately 15,000 pages with this scanner and it couldn't have been easier. I did get the occasional "paper jam" when the sheet feeder picked up the next page as it was feeding the current page. Clearing a jam is trivial: pop the cover open, remove the pages, snap the cover back, continue scanning. Considering I was feeding in papers from 15 - 20 years ago, I expected the pages to occasionally stick together. This scanner is worth every penny.

Am I reading this correctly? You've scanned 15k pages on a scanner that's been out a month ?

Yes, a stack of clean, uniform papers of decent quality runs through these things in no time flat. On normal quality settings you can zip through many hundreds of pages in a matter of minutes. For me the only thing that takes time is flipping through the resulting pdf to make sure no pages got skipped by clinging together and going through the feeder as one. But when that happens, I just rescan the missing pages and insert them in the right order using PDFPenPro, before running the ABBYY FineReader OCR software, which also does a very good job, very quickly. If you've got thousands of pages of printed material in good condition that need scanning and accurate OCR in a short amount of time, this is definitely the way to go.

Have you fed in duplex sheets, and stacks of duplex sheets, say 10 or more at a time?
