ScanSnap iX500 reviews

  • 1. harry jeffs, jeffs& Co

So easy to install\r\nSo easy to use\r\nPrice is competitive\r\nNo problem with double sided and rotation\r\nJust sort your folders out beforehand and the scanning is as simple as can be.\r\nShould have bought it ages ago\r\n
  • 2. Gabriel Crommelin

Love it, very efficient indeed. Using it primarily to scan old photos and it does a great job.
  • 3. Adrian Brown, A B Compliance Limited

I have used this for less than 1,000 scans but it has worked well. I like the fact that it takes up very little space on my desk, especially when shut. The deskewing works well as does the option not to scan blank pages. I would have given it 5 stars but opening the app by right clicking whereas all the others on the task bar require a left click takes getting use to and, more importantly I find the interface that pops up old fashioned and not that intuitive. For example for deskewing you have to click on the options button which is on the scanning tab screen that appears after you have opened Scan button settings. Otherwise a great little machine and would certainly buy again.
  • 4. Trevor Harris, Harris Heating

Great piece of technology, took some technical knowledge to install as we don't have a disk drive on our Mac but up and running now and when coupled with receipt bank saves a lot of time and effort.\r\nWould recommend this to any business big or small
  • 5. Elbrus Seiidov , E.S.building contractors Ltd

Absolutely great tool, quick dispatch and great communication
  • 6. George Tilley, Leweston Farm LLP

Delivered as expected the next day.\r\nI can only compare with my old Canon scanner but this machine is excellent. I have tried it on custom settings (but like modern digital cameras) it's as good as it comes left on auto.\r\nIt's fast, auto sensing of colour & it minimised file sizes. Great.\r\nBe aware that it lacks drivers. No probs with my FileCentre software but that could be a problem for others.
  • 7. Constance Whippman

This product has good features but very difficult to integrate the functionality....I would welcome some basic tutorials on how to get the best from it. Simple things like how to chance the file name seem much more difficult to achieve than they should be. Not clear whether both sides of page are being copied. et etc. In ass disappointing
  • 8. Alan Smith, St. James's Place

Very easy to set up and use, great quality ,quick and quiet
  • 9. Phillip Hathway, Hathways Estate Agents

Third purchase - very happy with products and services
  • 10. Steven Robinson, Clarke Robinson & Co Ltd

This is the 2nd one I have bought so I can scan at my own desk instead of having to go into another room and interrupt someone else. If it wasn't the perfect solution I would have bought a different one.

In case documents are intended to be managed locally, ScanSnap Organizer will provide an ideal repository.
