Fujitsu ScanSnap is a Snap

From the blog

Following up on Isaac O’Bannon’s very well-timed post
about the paperless office
, I wanted to share my experience with the Fujitsu
ScanSnap S1300

Promoted as an instant PDF mobile scanner, I had my doubts about quality and
ease of use – but am, instead, completely blown away by how simple the ScanSnap
is to use. I had previously used my Lexmark all-in-one printer as a scanner
– and it was neither easy nor exhibited the kind of quality I need.

The ScanSnap can scan 8 double-sided color pages in less than a minute, with
a feeder that holds 10 total pages. That’s right. I said double-sided.
Once the scan is complete, a pop-up window asked me to decide where I wanted
it – as a file on my system, attached to an e-mail, or in Word or Excel.

It can be powered by AC or USB, and took less than 5 minutes to set up. USB-capabilities
enable it to be truly mobile – perfect for staff working remotely.

I’m sold on this. Now if I can just break away from scanning everything
in the office, I can get back to work.
