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!
I purchased this as a gift for my uncle. He wanted to digitalis my late grandmother's massive lifetime of photo albums. Maybe I should say photo shoe boxes. DOZENS! It has every option he asked for and when he is finished, he's going to bring it back so the rest of the family can do it too. I have 100'seen of Koda chrome slides I haven't seen in 50 years! I chose this one for the built-in slide scanner option. The price was very affordable considering the number of pics to process. I strongly recommend grabbing one of these before your family heirloom photos start to disappear. Oh yes, and it also has an auto color repair feature for the faded ones, and you can share your photos with the rest of the family using a cloud service!
