Fujitsu Scansnap ix500 Small Business Scanner

My review of the Fujitsu Scansnap ix500 is based on what we use it for, so it might not be the most comprehensive thing ever. Basically we needed one of these for business use, and you guys told me you wanted me to review that kind of stuff, so here goes.

you went over the complexity if your computer won’t read a CD, and it was too fast.  I have a Microsoft Surface Pro and am trying to set it up.  Now it sounds very much more complicated, and you went fast over ‘…management utilities…”. HELP!

Yes more videos on office equipment is very good. I’d like to see more on the software side on managing a paperless office for sure.

hi. I bought mine and from the start it made a black band on the second page of the file (the reverse). I couldn’t get rid of it.
Do you know anything about it?

Hi LMG Team! 🙂

I just wanted to comment here, I know this video is older at this point but the information has proven to be very valuable to me. I work for a customer who just purchased 3 of these scanners and your review has helped me very quickly come up to speed on the product.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! 🙂

..and yes I think you should keep giving us these videos on the office tools you guys use. You have a young business and I think your team has some awesome insight into many emerging ways to handle day-to-day operations. 🙂

Justo Diaz says:

Thanks for the informative video, your fast talking reviews make my life easy…. I’m soooo getting this scanner!

Pankaj Garg says:

Loved the way you did this no time waste synopsis. I have been using this scanner for 3 years, yet I managed to pick up a couple of helpful tips! Excellent Job! Would love to see more small business related stuff.

Ramon Colon says:

great video, thanks…. you are giving me hope to my receipt and business card madness

Vanden Bowen says:

Is it possible to print a blank register (with a different printer), fill the information in (A, Z, O, X, etc.) and then have the scanner scan it back into a new excel spreadsheet?

Is it possible to label pieces of paper (using a simple word(s) that are stamped or written into the top corner (for example) before scanning, and have the scanner automatically file using the label?

Can the scanner scan A3 paper?

Thanks for the info.

Vijay Das says:

Ton Robert says:

How much is this scanner ?

Ha V. says:

Ivana Humpalot says:
