Let me start by saying kudos to Overstock overall!! No sales tax, free shipping and great customer service keeps me as a repeat customer. Have noticed their selection of goodies expanding recently so plan to start paying more attention to their email specials!! SHIPPED OVERNIGHT WITHOUT ASKING FOR IT - I ordered this scanner on Monday am - order status shows shipped from Ontario, CA by Monday pm and it was on my doorstep Tuesday @ 4pm (delivered by Ontrac). GOOD ONLINE ORDER HISTORY - I've made a handful of purchases since 2003 that I can go remind myself anytime I need a sanity check on how much I really spend online. Most of the items (such as the down pillows for my head) are still being enjoyed so overall i've been happy with the quality of products I've received from overstock. NOW FOR THE ACTUAL PRODUCT REVIEW..... If you've ever hunted for a receipt (for warranty) or looked at older faded receipts that are no longer readable (I usually tuck into the appliance manual), then cursed yourself for not photocopying (like me) - then for a mere $*** those days of frustration can be a thing of the past. This is a workhorse - scans single sided and double sided papers in no time. Receipts on flimsy thermal paper smushed in my handbag do not bother it. It does not have a TWAIN compliant driver so i can't scan directly to Acrobat or Quicken like i can with my $*** canon multifunction 4570. However my Canon ADF (auto doc feeder) cannot do receipts. Scanning receipts one at a time on the glass is VERY time-consuming. At $400 this is pricey however for the amount of time it has saves me has more than paid for itself many times over. I scanned a years worth of receipts and papers in an hour and took another 3 hrs to name each of the PDFs - made getting everything over to my accountant much less of a chore than prior years. FUJITSU BUNDLED SOFTWARE is FANTASTIC once you get used to it. I thought I would hate it as I am so used to scanning directly to Acrobat with the canon and then adjusting each file and naming as I go along. Talk about being in the dark ages and not knowing it!! It took about a day to get used to doing this differently and it is so much faster to batch scan and then rename afterwards. I tweaked my fujitsu scanner software for minimum size and auto detect color mode. The PDF file size (done by fuitsu) is half of what the canon can do, in color and much clearer (even with min file size). I'm sure there will be people that say storage is cheap however you have not factored in the amount of time it takes to do full backups. I say every little bit counts and have been able to get rid of 3 filing cabinets plus a wall of 3 ring binders (those have been donated to our local school). Total of 20 years worth paper baggage scanned in one weekend. We labeled each PDF with the date of the doc, short name $ amt (for receipts and invoices) plus short description if space permitted. I found that once you have a logical way to name each doc you will find that they semi sort themselves in the folder. POST SALES SERVICE I had some problems getting the wireless scanning to work from Ipad directly to scanner. Was able to get a live knowledgeable person to help troubleshoot within 5 minutes. 4.5* for no twain compliant driver but 5* for the user friendliness and quality of the scans. 5***** (to the power of 5) for Fujitsu post sales customer service. 5* overall for the hardware.

Not all that pleased with this one, the cost of the device comes with the expectation that you get something without major downsides. I can list some glaring ones. For starters, I have to restart my PC to get the software to recognize the scanner after being idle. This is incredibly inconvenient and a terrible failure on Fujitsu's part. This is with all the troubleshooting they recommend, which boils down to trying different USB ports, and reinstalling the software. A lot of the time documents get misaligned (Receipts in particular) and do not feed correctly, entering the scanner straight and falling into an angle. While the scanner software does correct and straighten documents scanned crooked, it only detects documents coming through the center of the feed tray and stops a scan prematurely if the receipt has fallen out of that sensors view. Keeping the document or receipt straight in the feed tray is very difficult, even with the guides. When feeding a document 14 inches or longer, the scanner quits scanning at the 14 inch mark and feeds the rest of the paper. The best fix I can come up with is tearing the original document to make two pages for one, and this makes the resulting PDF very confusing when the document contains print on both sides. Overall though, it is a huge improvement over your basic all-in-one printer. The thing that bugs me is that I paid this extraordinary price for a device that requires a lot of coddling. Will not purchase a Fujitsu next time!

As previous poster stated the scanner will not scan a document longer than 14". It will error out and give you a paper jam code, so there is no way to even scan the 14" of the document then scan the other side and paste. HP customer support was less than helpful. I was told they would look into changing the spec sheets and talking to their retail partners. After a year it is still being sold on many retailer sites as scanning up to 34". If you scan receipts, you are bound to scan one that is longer than 14"

I bought this for my husband who travels for weeks or months at a time. He has to keep track of his receipts and sometimes on site he needs to be able to make a copy of something. I read all the reviews and went for it. He said it worked great and he followed the "scanning" advice I had read about. According to him the "learning curve" for proper use was nil, it worked fine the first time, gave a quality scan and fits nicely in his laptop bag. Fortunatley this one came with the memory card, which he says will work great for transfering the info. And as suggested for small papers (like receipts) he puts them in a clear page protector so he can hold the edges and scan - worked like a charm!! As for the O-Stock part of the review - as usual the shipping time and service was awesome, and the product was as described!!
