The Fujitsu ScanSnap SV600
For smooth operation in overhead scanning, the Fujitsu ScanSnap SV600 is enhanced with new customized features while continuing the ScanSnap concept of "Simple, Fast, and Compact." Scan newspapers, magazines, or books directly without cutting or damaging them. Save time and effort, and make it an easy job by scanning not only books or magazines but all types of content restrained in binders, spirals, folders, or clear sleeves. Just flip the page and scan. The ScanSnap SV600 scans business cards to large A3 size (double-letter) documents. And with the included ScanSnap Organizer, CardMinder and Rack2-Filer Smart software, keeping scanned content organized and accessible is a "Snap."

Versatile Imaging (VI) Technologies
Some things can't be scanned through a feeder so ScanSnap SV600 operates by taking an elevated view. Combining high quality CCD optics and advanced LED illumination, ScanSnap SV600 uses advanced capture technologies to maximize field of depth and minimize unevenness page after page. ScanSnap SV600 breaks free from typical flatbed limitations by scanning content larger than just letter size. Simply position the document on the A3 scan mat and press scan.
Quick Menu Saves Time
The Quick Menu pops up after scanning to allow users a fast and productive way to store, share or transform their data either on the computer, or into a favorite cloud service, like Evernote or Dropbox.
Multiple Document Detection
With an advanced cropping and orientation technology built-in, ScanSnap SV600 can scan several business cards, photos, newspaper clippings, and other documents at one time.
With the touch of the power button, ScanSnap SV600 is ready to scan. And with each touch, a large A3 dimension scan area is captured in less than 3 seconds. Combined with intelligent image correction, page turning detection, and features like Timed Mode and Auto Book Correction, great results are just a button push away.
Quickly and easily synchronize your scanned documents between ScanSnap Organizer on your computer and the ScanSnap Connect App on your mobile device using Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive. ScanSnap Sync automatically synchronizes scanned documents between your computer and mobile device, giving you more flexibility to manage your scanned data.
ScanSnap Receipt allows users to easily scan and extract information from receipts, and export the data into CSV for easy tax filing. ScanSnap Receipt also supports multiple languages and currencies.* For PC and Mac.
*Supported languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian. Supported currencies: USD (United States Dollar), CAD (Canadian Dollar), GBP (Great Britain Pound), EUR (Euro), RUB (Russian ruble), AUD (Australian dollar).
Easily Create Your Own Digital Books
ScanSnap SV600 is your ultimate partner to scan books or magazines efficiently. With "Rack2-Filer Smart with Magic Desktop" software, you can scan, organize and create your own digital books.

As a 30+ yr Genealogist, bookbinder in training, and collector of early Radio documentation, I have BOXES of paper stored, and every possible bookshelf is crammed in my 11 bookcases!
Starting in the 90's my goal was to digitize my collections. This used to take SO long on my flatbed scanner, and it was riddled with problems. (e.g. folding printed matter to fit the scan area, closing the lid enough that it doesn't create 'light shadows' etc.). I used to spend as much time editing as I did scanning, and scanning took 1-2 days effort per book, etc. Ugh.
With the SV600, I dreamed of a workflow where my piles of paper were SEARCHABLE, and my office was clean!
Out of the box, it was clear that this wasn't a 'hobby' scanner. Its for libraries, or specialists needing 'contact free' scanning.
The SC600 is built like a tank, though you will need to be very careful to follow the instructions on moving the scanner (NEVER pick it up by the movable scanning head!). It comes with a nice neoprene mat that snugs around the base of the unit, and has useful markings on it to center and judge size. Software included MUST be installed before connecting and powering on the unit, or you may get the device confused when it's discovered by your computer.
Software included is: ScanSnap Manager, ScanSnap Organizer, Magic Desktop, Rack-2-Filer, and Adobe Acrobat Standard XI (1 user bundle)
There are a couple of things that really stand out about the software from Fujitsu (not Adobe). Its 'first generation' tools that have a bit of 'engrish' around the edges, and I cant say the help file is great. You will figure out the workflow pretty fast though.
1) Put a book/magazine down centered
2) Push the blue scan button - I usually hold for 2 sec to activate 'page turning mode'
3) 3 sec later, the scan is done and on your screen in SS Manager
4) Turn the page...POOF it scans the next one!! (if it doesn't detect you can hit 'continue', hit the scan button, OR even better for me, hit the SPACE bar to continue
5) when the book is done (I did 88 pages in about 10 min total), click finish
6) You then choose where to send the scan >> Organizer, Rack-2-Filer, Magic desktop, etc. (I always use organizer)
In the SS Organizer, you can choose any page, then edit the scan boundaries, remove any fingers that got into the scan (don't avoid this, hold your items flat with your fingers...they are removed flawlessly), specify if its single page, or double page (it automagically splits multipage scans!)
Once you get things tidy, I export to Rack-2-Filer, where my virtual library is displayed as a bookshelf.
Using the included OCR features, I can now search across my ENTIRE library!!! WOW. I am grinning ear to ear,
Imagine: You are restoring a radio from 1923, and it has a part that is only labeled "101-2238". Yikes. OK, a quick search across a dozen or more parts catalogs from the 20-30's reveals a match, and indicates a Capacitor with 0.002 umf. _NICE_
I was a little hesitant about the $625-ish price tag, but a week after receiving it, I would buy this scanner again in a heartbeat.
My recycling bin received two BOXES of paper now scanned, and the wife is very happy, and I think I will go scan some guitar sheet music that is gathering dust.
1 - the quality is amazing
2 - the size of the scan area is larger than A3, allowing for maps and oversize documents to be quickly and completely scanned
3 - the scanning software offers a lot of possibilities for correction and file formats
1 - the cost
2 - the speed: faster than a flatbed, much slower than a camera
3 - THE SOFTWARE - apparently, the software designers never actually USED the product. There are a multitude of problems that have cropped up:
a - the software froze anywhere from 5-20 times a day. At first I lost everything, and then I learned to turn off the machine, wait for the error message, then turn it on again. You then have to check and see if you're missing a page before proceeding.
b- the software also often crashed if I wanted to scan more than 100 pages in at a time. This meant I had to do two files and merge them together later. This is awkward.
c - there is no way to abort a scan if you hit "enter" by mistake. If you hit the abort button, it aborts your whole document.
d - there is no "Back" button on the scan software. When you are scanning lots of documents, you tend to make silly mistakes, starting or stopping when you don't mean to. Well, you're out of luck, you have to proceed on the path you (mistakenly) chose, whether you liked it or not
e - you can correct the scans by picking either double-pages or single pages, but no one button gives you all the functions you need. why?
f- the removal of finger prints worked about 50% of the time. Trying to get the little points pulled around the actual fingerprint could take tons of valuable time.
g - the anti-skew didn't seem to work well on large books. To change the area highlighted took minutes per page, and never, ever worked out well. Instead, I only scan in smaller books. Larger books, only one page at a time, or better said, each open set of pages twice. This means the whole idea of an anti-skew software doesn't work for my purposes
h - as a previously designed of user software my frustration was high - the designers never used this product in a real-life setting, nor was it tested in a real-life setting, not were user usability tests conducted in a real-life setting.
In the beginning I raved about this scanner, but because of the crashing and poor software development, I would wait until they make software upgrades before buying.
