This review is from: Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M Instant PDF Sheet-Fed Scanner for the Macintosh (Office Product)
But I mean this in a good way. The ScanSnap S1500M gobbles up piles of paper at an amazing rate. One-side or two-side scanning takes the same time. I have put just about every type of paper through it, often of mixed sizes and types (e.g., legal and letter size, 3x5 cards, newspaper and magazine clippings, unfolded brochures). A carrier sheet is available for crumpled, folded, or extremely thin paper. I've only had one paper jam (an odd-shaped, somewhat crumpled page that I ran without using the carrier sheet). Clearing jams is trivially easy because of the almost straight-through paper path. I am amazed by the quality of the scans. Photos sometimes look better than the originals. It small and almost silent. The software is easy to use. I have seldom, if ever, had a computer peripheral that I was as happy with.

Thanks on commenting on using it with duplex sheets plus comparing it to other peripherals.

The ScanSnap S1500M is an awesome scanner, if it would work with Mac OSX Lion! The support page offers downloads that say it is for Lion, but no go. I have a beautiful scanner, but it doesn't work at all. Got any suggestions?
