Fujitsu is well-known for their outstanding products and the ScanSnap iX1500 is no different. It actually stands out better among scanners that are in the market right now and here’s why.
The ScanSnap iX1500 finished in white is quite an eye catching scanner. It may be a small scanner but never let its size fool you. The scanner weighs at 3.4 kg, a pretty hefty weight for a scanner this small. No buttons are found on the scanner. There is a 4.3 inch colour TFT touch screen display which uses touch based controls for easier and more intuitive interface. The lid doesn’t only protect dust from entering the feeder; it also acts as the paper holder. A receipt guide tray comes shipped with the scanner which sits in place at the tray to easily stack receipts or business cards for scanning.
This is not your regular scanner where it just scans document to your preferred destination. Fujitsu wanted the ScanSnap iX1500 to standout better than any other scanners in the market so they introduced certain intelligent features which are pretty useful. The scanner is capable of auto rotating the final outcome even if you feed a document, receipt or even a business card in an awkward angle. That is not all; it can detect the type of document it scans, whether if it is a business card, a document or even a receipt and auto rotates if . Using OCR technology, the scanner scans documents and allows for conversion to a Word, Excel or PowerPoint file for editing purpose.
Scanned documents will be sent to ScanSnap Home (for Windows and Mac) or ScanSnap (for iOS and Android). The thing which differentiates this scanner apart is how it names every document scanned. Unlike most scanners which generate titles for documents based on the time scanned, the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 is smart enough to name titles accordingly. It reads through documents using OCR and come up with titles based on information found on the documents. This makes it easier to search for a scanned document in the ScanSnap application. Besides that, information such as a person’s name and contact can be extracted from a business card and stored in ScanSnap for your own record.
