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.

Top customer reviews
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.
First impressions - very nice quality unit and was glad to see Adobe Acrobat Standard 9 included (would be nice to have the latest version however). I thought I might use the Rack 2 Filer V5.0 (e.g.,RACK2FILER V4.0 for Fujitsu Scanners) however upon installation and review I think it is too limited and will stick with the ScanSnap organizer. It works well with thumbnails and keywords. If I were to purchase this again I would go with the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 Instant PDF Sheet-Fed Scanner for PC as the only difference is the inclusion of the Rack 2 Filer V5.0 software.
Business card scanning - works best with simple (light on the graphics/fonts)via the CardMinder scanning feature. I was able to load up a number of cards, 10-20 at a time and it scanned then in pretty well and quick! I generally had to go back and fix some of the details, but I was not expecting a lot in the software recognizing much in the way of contact details. The speed of scanning and the ability to toss the stack of cards is the real winner including some special cards with UV coating, raised lettering or even laminated.
So far I have stuck with the default scanning parameters (3 compression) and it seems fine to me. So far I have scanned over 1700 pages in just two days. This thing really flies through the paper and does an admirable job even with receipts taped down to a page. Yes, I have a snag here or there but it is to be expected based on the shape of the paper (fair to poor). I tried light newsprint to scan in - don't, that will jam right up on rollers, but other than that all other paper types included lined paper have gone through. I have used both continuous scanning and had no problem adding documents of all sizes to one file.
Scan Button (system tray) - This is essential in my opinion as it makes it the easiest to scan in documents. It runs in the system tray at start-up. You can configure the button or simply right click for single/duplex scanning. If you do the latter a pop-up window will appear asking you to designate the next action to take with the scan (e.g., scan manager or cardminder).
Bottom line - if you are looking to declutter and finally toss those hard copies you have had so long this is the tool to use. It is quick, efficient and an overall great tool to have in this digital age of ours.
While the OCR conversion feature provided by the included Adobe software is not flawless it works well enough for searches of 100 plus page reports saving me hours of flipping through pages of tabulated data. The "CardMinder" software is one of the best added software bundles to come along in a long time. I've scanned hundreds of business cards into files which are easily edited, archived as well as uploaded to Outlook Contacts.
For anyone requiring quality, fast, reliable and portable scanning capabilities I would highly recommend the S1500.
