The ScanSnap S1500 provides Windows users an effective way to greatly reduce paper clutter, storage space, and security risk associated with unmanaged paperwork at home or office. Even better, documents scanned by ScanSnap take on a higher level of accessibility and usefulness once liberated into the digital realm. Additionally, the ScanSnap S1500 Deluxe Bundle includes Rack2-Filer V5.0, an ultra-intuitive scanning and file management application for home or small office. Through the use of graphical cabinets and e-Binders, users will experience a familiar yet heightened level of accessibility and convenience to their digital content.
Amazon.com Product Description With the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500, organizing your home or office is as easy as pushing a button. With a scanning speed of up to 20 pages per minute, the S1500 can quickly reduce paper clutter without sacrificing document quality. The smart scanner detects document size and coloration to ensure that your digitized copies are true to the originals. An added bonus, the scanner's included software bundle allows you to export, manipulate, and file your documents with ease.
Turn a stack of files into secure digital documents.
The ScanSnap S1500 offers resolutions of up to 300 dpi--color or grayscale--without sacrificing speed. With the touch of a single button, you can scan up to 20 double-sided pages per minute.
You won't need to do a thing to ensure that your scans look their best, because the S1500 comes equipped with paper-feed detection to monitor page size, as well as color and black-and-white detection. Better still, the scanner automatically rotates, crops, or de-skews documents.
If a small document (such as a receipt or business card) is mixed in with a stack of larger documents, the ScanSnap S1500 can be set to automatically increase the resolution of the small document to help ensure that finer print is discernable. What's more, an interactive interface allows you to choose to easily and quickly bypass double-feeds such as taped-receipts on expense reports.
Four Software Packages Included for Document Organization and Protection
When it comes time to manage your digital files, use one of the four software packages included with the S1500. View, manage, and edit PDF and JPEG files using ScanSnap Organizer 4.0. Or, to do more than just view and print PDF versions of your documents, try Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard. This package allows you to create digital IDs and implement password protection to keep confidential documents safe.
To convert your paperwork into editable text, try ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap 4.0 PC Edition. Alternatively, use CardMinder 4.0 to quickly scan business cards, extract the contact information, and place it into editable fields that can be exported to Excel, Outlook, and other contact managers.

1. Auto color detection, Duplex, Best image quality (300dpi Color/Grey 600dpi BW), Options [Only Blank page removal checked (no auto rotation - slows down page viewing)], Continuous scanning.
2. Same as above except change color mode to gray.
And in general I have found:
The multifeed detector works great and has detected many double feeds. It handles old thin thermal fax paper without double feeds - pretty amazing, because I would think that if anything would jam or double feed it would be that. The prompt shows the image of the detected multifeed and gives you the option of keeping it or discarding it - this has been helpful when it detects sticky notes on scanned paper that are supposed to be there.
It has handled many old papers - barely legible and has done an adequate job picking up light print.
Very light or old papers with light print or pencil hand writing are better handled by forcing the color detection to grey. Otherwise Auto everything works well.
Blank page detection - does not work with the other side of lined loose leaf paper or graph paper that has nothing written on it. That is to be expected - but a possible design improvement idea for this product. And to get around this, I have set the scanning side to single-sided. Otherwise blank page detection worked well.
Scans looked exactly like the originals and in rack2 filer the binders read and looked as well as the paper binders.
When it does jam (which was rarely the scanners fault and mostly from staples, taped paper or over loading), the prompt shows the last few pages scanned which makes it easy to recover.
Fanning and creating a step-like pattern of your paper stack before loading the paper makes a big difference in preventing paper jams.
Some of the advantages:
I can take many binders worth on information with me on my notebook without dragging the heavy paper binders in my bag - or one of those wheeled bags that my colleagues use.
There is the security of now being able to have multiple copies of my binders in physically different locations [desktop, notebook, and off site backups] all without using a copy machine.
I need less space for file cabinets [files], bookshelves [binders], and thus less office space.
Everything is now in one place. My office is too small to have all my binders and files together, but now they all fit in one folder on my hard drive.
Although I will still use paper to write on, I don't foresee a reason to ever need to bind or file papers anymore. Just take notes, scan, and recycle.
The actual images for Rack2Filer and CardMinder are in PDF files so if anything happens with Rack2filer - you can always access the data via windows explorer and acrobat.
I have used NeatWorks for my accounting (receipts), documents, and business cards for about a year now. The mobile scanner scans at 3 ppm black and white and 2ppm color - single sided only. So for duplex color ScanSnap is (20ppm x 2)/2ppm = 20x faster - a huge improvement. The NeatWorks software is also heavy and slow compared to Rack2filer and CardMinder.
However, NeatWorks is better than ScanSnap organizer or Rack2filer for receipts. And it can import the PDF scans from the S1500. So, I recommend using NeatWorks software (not the NeatWorks/Desk scanner) for receipts, Rack2Filer for documents and CardMinder for Business cards.
I was on the development team for the worlds very first Windows based scan to cabinet system called Seaview so I have been using scanners and software for a while
More recently I have been using three different Neat Receipts scanners for scanning and storing documents, scanning checks to make at home bank deposits and creating PDF from scanned documents. Sadly Neat has not kept up with their software and while their larger scanner does a fine job of scanning receipts, full size pages usually are scanned crooked because the pinch rollers are too close to correctly draw a 8.5 x 11 piece of paper to scan.
The Fujitsu will scan receipts however there is a size limit so receipts longer than about 15 inches, need to be cut to reduce their length. Scanning full size documents is no problem for the Fujitsu. It works beautifully.
There is a however on flaw, and it is a big one, which is why the Fujitsu scanner got such a low rating and I will describe it in a moment.
The Fujitsu scanner is fast and quiet. The applications install quickly and effortlessly. No conflicts with Win 7 Pro 64-bit, it worked right out of the box. I also appreciate getting a Standard version of Adobe Acrobat X and the scan to file and scan to Fujitsu filing cabinet works great though there is a bit of a learning curve. With about two hours of work, I could make good sense of how the software worked and scanned in several hundred pages of documents without a hitch.
Here is the problem, the scanner will likely not work with anything else you have. The problem? There are no TWAIN drivers.
Since discovering this I am beside myself for not having figured this out BEFORE I bought the scanner because I know better. Other reviewer mentioned this but I missed it. Grrrr. But why is TWAIN important?
To use the scanner directly with any other applications, you need a TWAIN driver. If you want to scan directly into Photoshop or Acrobat, or say you want to use the your banks deposit at home service to scan checks and deposit them without having to drive to the bank or mail them, those applications all use TWAIN to talk to the scanner.
I have heard Fujitsu's excuse that TWAIN makes the scanning experience less enjoyable but I am not buying it.
Fujitsu wrote this back in 2009 so they know there have been more than just one or two complaints.
In fact, not having TWAIN makes this scanner less enjoyable and less useful. Fujitsu could easily solve this problem by providing a TWAIN driver for compatibility with other apps, and then use their own drivers with their applications to improve the scanning experience.
So you need to decide:
If you know you will never use this scanner except with the Fujitsu software that comes with it, then buy the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500, it it is an excellent scanner and the Amazon price is one of the lowest around.
But, on the off chance you want to use this scanner with any other software program or web service to scan a document, the Fujitsu scanner won't work and you should look for a different solution.
It's help me with document management for my personal and my business records.
It does jam somewhat if the paper stack is too thick or the documents are not smooth.
Otherwise, it scans well including checks and ID cards.
The included scanning is proprietary but it includes Adobe Acrobat Standard, NOT the Professional version, unfortunately. Don't spend more money for Fujitsu's additional software to scan into a drawer system as that's too much, at least for me.
Unfortunately, this model can ONLY be scanned directly to the printer it's connected to instead of a network since it's NOT TWAIN compatible as it does NOT support TWAIN drivers. You'll need to upgrade to its Business models at a higher cost.
But for the price and performance, this model, which as been updated since I've bought it years ago, will suit the needs of the average person and small business.
If I need a replacement, I'll get one of the business models which is Twain compliant.
