People ask me about various scanners from time to time. My answer to them is always the same: the Fujitsu ScanSnap is the one I have and have used for over 15 years. That’s the one that many other lawyers I know have and use, and we all love this scanner.
So why would we look for anything else?
I started scanning in the year 2000, and back then it was hard to find a simple scanner that worked great for not much money. I experienced firsthand the frustration of trying to get a scanner that would work easily and reliably. About 7 years ago I found the first model that Fujitsu put out, and after that I’ve stopped looking.
The Fujitsu has a long history of being reliable, easy-to-use, and affordable. It’s maybe the only Scanner I know that comes with excellent software.
None of the other scanners I’ve come across have software to match Fujitsu’s. And I know the ScanSnap is reliable because it’s been in service for almost two decades.
In other words, it has a long history of reliability. I don’t have time to experiment with new products that may not wind up being as reliable, when I’ve found one that will do everything I need for a very reasonable price.
The most recent edition is the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1600 (which is available on Amazon for $399 at the time of this writing)
