About Fujitsu iX500

The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 Desktop Scanner provides PC users an effective way to greatly reduce paper clutter, storage space and security risk associated with unmanaged paperwork at home or office. For even greater accessibility and usefulness, users can scan documents directly to an iOS or Android mobile device or tablet.

Fujitsu iX500 Features

  • Achieving organization with the ScanSnap iX500 starts with the touch of a single button and ends with a host of productivity features that keep you ahead of the stack.
  • Quickly bypass the computer to scan an image enhanced PDF or JPEG file directly to an iOS or Android mobile device or tablet
  • Typically, higher quality means lower performance, but the iX500 maintains a speed of up to 25 pages per minute even at 300 dpi in Color
  • A dual-core CPU-mounted "GI" processor performs the intelligent image enhancement responsible for great looking images with dramatically faster results and more sophisticated connectivity
  • Inheriting the superior paper feeding technology of the professional-grade scanners, iX500 achieves exceptional feeding reliability using "Separation Roller" technology to minimize jams and multi-feeds
  • ScanSnap iX500 is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor that can be turned on to help operators avoid losing images. What's more, an interactive interface allows users to easily bypass intentional double-feed such as a taped-receipt on an expense report
  • Making PDF files searchable at the point of scanning is a great way to keep them instantly accessible and now you can create a searchable PDF at nearly the same speed as a standard PDF.
  • The ScanSnap iX500 works on both Mac and PC operating systems, making flexibility a breeze.
  • ScanSnap iX500 can quickly scan business cards, extract the content information and place it into editable fields that can be exported to Address Book.
  • Quickly convert PDF documents into searchable PDF's with a simple drag and drop functionality of FineReader Express.
  • View, manage and edit PDF and JPEG files scanned with ScanSnap on a Windows platform. Organizer allows users to convert scanned PDF files into searchable content, embed custom keywords, attach to email or SharePoint and remain productive with paperwork long after it is scanned.
  • ScanSnap iX500 also quickly scans loads of business cards, extracts the contact information and places it into editable fields that can be exported to Outlook.
  • Scan 'outside-the-box' into virtually any application or cloud service from PC.

My iX500 is a significant time saver

My iX500 is my first 2-side single-pass document scanner and it is a great machine. I previously used a recycling 2-side sheet feed scanner. The old scanner would work fine with 8-1/2x11 paper scanning the front, but would occasionally jam when scanning the reverse side. The iX500 takes any side document, from credit card memos and checks to 8-1/2x11. It scans both sides in one pass ... and, it is really fast. It also ignores blanks sides. Not having to clear jams, being able to scan all size...

Not having to clear jams, being able to scan all sizes of papers through the sheet feed, not having to deal with blank sides, and the superior image quality make the iX500 my new best office-equipment friend.

This product has very poor reliability.

incredible, fast,, easy to use, whether for docs or photos!

By

from Escondido, CA

I couldn't be happier! I initially started looking for a document feeder so I could dispose of the many cabinets of paper I have been holding onto. It has worked wonderfully! Scanning multiple width originals and different thickness papers all in the same batch. If one of the originals is fed in crooked the software automatically straightens it out. I have also been using it to digitize my photos. When set to the highest quality scan I have enlarged the photos to 8x10 and larger. The small footprint means it is always ready. The ease in which it scans directly to my android still surprises me. The only thing I would like to see improved is the stitching of oversized documents. It is adequate but not perfect. From some of the reviews I was concerned that it would be slow. The scan snap didn't disappoint whether I am scanning one sided originals or two, it is fast. The other reviewers may have been thinking about the conversion to searchable PDF, which is done just after the scan and has more to do with the speed of your computer. It is also very easy to clean. I love my scansnap ix500

Best value out there

By

from Atlanta

I have been using this scanner for almost a year now and it has always been reliable. It is fast and has pretty much every feature you could ask for. The only thing I hope they add in the future is a "Scan to OneNote" mode but I have been using the Scan to Print and using the Send to OneNote 2013 printer as a workaround. I recommend this scanner to anyone looking for something that can scan large amounts of documents.

Great Product

from Russellville, AR

I love the ease of use. The hardest thing I come up against is organizing the files in a manner that allows me to readily access scanned documents at a later date.

Excellent choice for desktop scanning

By

from Lakeland, FL

The ScanSnap iX500 greatly increased my productivity as a result of its speed, automatic duplex scanning capabilities and flexible intuitive interface that allows me to organize, store, and/or email scans quickly and easily. It easily scans virtually any size documents from business cards to legal size and can even OCR documents with great accuracy. I researched a number of scanners, some significantly higher in price, that specialized in document storage, and in my opinion the iX500 beats them hands down at a much better value.

Product works great, quick and reliable!

By

from Dublin OHIO

Have owned scanner for about a year. A true workhorse. Footprint is not overly huge, so it does not take up a lot of deskspace. Folds up when not in use. Am working on going totally paperless, and this tool is the key. Working on scanning 30 years of records, this is why I bought this. Researched many other models on net, all indicators pointed me to this one, glad it did!! Highly recommend this. Would buy again without hesitation!!!

This product is very fine and very easy to use.

By

I bought the product to digitize my office/ paperless and almost achieving the goal had it not been to my own lack of focus. The software bundle works great with the product and was indeed the very reason for my decision to purchase the package. I strongly recommend it.

Amazing

By

from Texas

Simply put this scanner and software bundle is amazing. It has helped me to get rid of many boxes of paperwork dating back decades. it scans almost faster than you can keep up with and so far has jammed only once on a hidden staple. took it to a meeting yesterday and I had several people think that I was just getting the front sides as they were shocked how quick it was scanning. LOVE IT! While the software could have a beauty makeover, it is relatively easy to use and super "smart" Great product!

Easy to use

By

from Washington, DC

It was easy to install and it was easy to use. Then, nearly a year later, I started having problems. I found the problems were with my wireless router not allowing the scanner to connect. That made using the ScanSnap iX500 a real pain. But after my router problem was resolved the scanner has been working fine again. I love it.

Best. Scanner. Ever.

By

from Kansas

Saw this demonstrated at the 2014 ABA Techshow, came back and ordered one and have never regretted it. It is the fastest, easiest to operate scanner I've ever used. Can't say enough good things about it, including fabulous scan quality.
