Ratings & Reviews
BEWARE no Snow Leopard support
This is a great scanner but beware - there is no support for Snow Leopard and no date for when a new version of the software will be available. …

Scans documents fast; automatically recognising single/double sided and (variable) page size, scanning front and back simultaneous ly, discarding back if it's empty. A pleasure to use. Includes the £326-if-it-was-available-separately Adobe Acrobat Standard which can make scanned pdf documents searchable, so you can find them with Spotlight. Combined with OSX coverflow and a large screen, this scanner is a joy to use. With Time Machine, "scan and shred" becomes viable for the home office. OSX Preview application is ideal for any page removal, rotation, re-ordering or merging that's occasionally needed.
Problems with Snow Leopard were trivial and fixable, and now there's a fix from Fujitsu - Google it if you need it. Originally the S1500M was not compatible with PC, but now both PC S1500 and Mac S1500M can be used on the other platform. Plenty of help available online from other happy Scansnap users.
It's not a flatbed scanner, and won't do film, slides, or books (unless you cut the pages out). It's OK with photos, but documents are its forte. …

I have seen scanners in my life, but the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M beats them all.
The ScanSnap s1500M is small, fast and makes cl ear pictures. It's very simple to use.
I can highly recommend this one.
Hope that buyers will have the same experience as me. …

Best document scanner on the market: GET ONE!
To concur with most of the others sensible reviewers around here; this is a very good machine.
• What file types does it scan to?
PDF and JPG. A4/A3 paper and photos can be scanned into .pdf/.jpg – there's even a special clear contact sheet supplied to protect the originals!
• Does is scan quickly?:
YEP, certainly does! Around 3-4 seconds a sheet, and in duplex (2-sides at the same time).
• Does the software work well?:
YEP, integrated with other systems you are likely to use already, and all (accept Acrobat: see below) works on Mac AND Win.
• Are the file sizes good?:
YES, many options are given, but even the high quality ones save to much better file sizes than other machines I've used.
• Does paper block in it?:
Nope. Used mine for months, only ever had it block once.
The one thing in making your decision, is which model to go for...
Acrobat is the decider. If you want the Mac version of it you should really buy the S1500M, if you want the Win version of it you should really buy the S1500.
(...I just REALLY hope Mountain Lion works with the Acrobat 9 Pro they supply currently with the S1500M machine!)
In summary, everyone should own the S1500M machine if they really want to get SERIOUS about going paper-free.
It really did the job for me, and I also use one in my business accordingly, as I've tried a great many other models, and nothing competes with it. …

Go paperless in a realistic way, with OSX-Lion and Adobe Acrobat 9
I have received my new ScanSnap S1500M two weeks ago. It’s fast, eats 20 pages per minute in duplex scanning, colour or black/whit e, fed form the sheet-fed. Operates automatic in a reliable manner. Bundled with licence for Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro and FineReader it is an excellent and robust overall solution. Quite impressed, even I have no shares in Fujitsu, Adobe or Apple. Collaboration boosts! …

Really 1st class companion to your Mac
I work from home and have to email a dozen or more sheets of hand-written notes off to clients every evening. It's now a joy! I si t down in front of my Mac (Snow Leopard, yes fully supported out of the box) pop my fistful of papers into the scanner and within a minute there is an email on my desktop with the PDF attached ready for me to add a cheery message to my client.
The scans are beautifully clear - clients are commenting on the clarity, the scanner takes up an improbably small space and I'm a very happy Mac user.
I've never used a Fujitsu product before and would have been sceptical of their ability to produce such a Mac friendly product, so thanks for the reviews for helping me take the plunge and buy.
It's expensive, but it really is a lovely thing and well worth it. Don't compromise with something cheaper. You won't regret buying this. Search for a better price. …
