Best Buy Review by RocketFlamingo
I missed it when it was gone
I've had a Fujitsu ScanSnap since seeing one in use at my doctor's office. I bought it maybe 7 years ago. While re-arranging, I did something really stupid and it accidentally dropped on the floor.
I was so angry with myself! I had no idea what to do but I knew having it fixed was probably not an option. What to do??
As luck would have it, I saw a new in box “Neat Desk” scanner at a Goodwill auction. I picked it up for under $100 and thought cool! I thought it would replace my ScanSnap and everything would be all better. I thought wrong.
After about a month or two, I was missing my ScanSnap pretty badly. The NeatDesk system confused me; it seemed to require that I go through a bunch of steps to get what I wanted including having the scan go to the site for processing or something and I wasn’t comfortable with that. So I used Windows Fax & Scan utility. But it wasn’t the same.
I made the decision to replace the ScanSnap with a new ScanSnap. I’m so glad I did. The features are easy, setting up WiFi (something the old ScanSnap didn’t have) was easy and it’s kind of cool that I can put something in the scanner then scan it from another room!
I’m totally delighted with my new ScanSnap and recommend it to anybody who wants exceptionally good scans every time. I like that I can set the scan size instead of being limited to one of three sizes like the NeatDesk.
It’s compact footprint, great range of features AND WiFi are great improvements but the scan quality is probably the best I’ve ever seen from any scanner including flatbed. I give the Fujitsu ScanSnap a much-deserved five stars for it’s awesomeness and affordability.
