This is a very fast (25 pg/min) compact scanner capable of scanning both sides of dozens of pages at a time. This is the lowest price I've seen. See it in action here youtu.be/aWi…cZg

Other then for Professional use .. I dont see too many people justifying the cost of an almost £300 Scanner on themselves for purely 'Home Use'?, do you ..... lool. :-)

Ok it seems a cheap price for that scanner.
Would I want it? Maybe if I wanted to scan lots of documents quickly and easily, duplexly (is that a word? it is now ): It seems to scan easily to most devices, apple, android etc.
But, it's got an enormous footprint.
And because of the way it scans, documents are fed through a roller whilst they are scanned (like a traditional fax), some documents which are weak or thin may not be suitable so you have to use a carrier (which is provided). Some objects, bulky items like books, cannot be scanned of course
The maximum resolution is only 600 x 600 dpi, which is one reason it is fast!

Great piece of kit. Does duplex scanning really quickly, has software OCR, and even auto straightens pages that go in wonky. Sold one of these on ebay for more than this recently, so at £299 it's a proper bargain.

We use an older version at work.
Closed dimensions are 292 mm x 159 mm x 168 mm (11.5 in. x 6.2 in. x 6.6 in.). The top opens back and the front opens down when in use.
Peak resolution is 1200x1200dpi mono at 7ppm duplex
It's an office scanner, designed for fast duplex paper scanning, so yes it's not 4800 dpi, and it's no use for scanning books! Ours is 7+ years old and soldiers steadily on...
It's good and fast at scanning invoices and all the rubbish that still comes from legacy commercial systems designed apparently before the days of email!

Good price. Use similar in work, definite over-kill for home use though.

this is an excellent scanner at a great price, would not be without this in the office. Also OCR to excel can be very handy...

I have given this deal some heat.

Reason for the heat is I have this scanner for home use and I got it when it was more expensive. but the scanner has paid for it's self many times over.

When set-up and running (BTW it has a small foot print when not in use and not much more when in use), I managed to get rid of years of documents which was just getting in the way. So I have more of less a "Paperless" home.

In use it's very fast (even over a wireless network) and had few problems in scanning, and with good management, I can find what I need quickly coupled with secure backups.

One thing to note is that you get a free copy of Adobe Acrobat (£150).

Bought the S1300 when I was at Uni 2/3 years ago. With my OKI laser printer - both have been best investment ever.

How does this compare vs the Evernote version?

Oh, now I get you

Just had a quick look at my ScanSnap Organizer application, and there is the option to "Scan to Evernote". So I don't think you need a Evernote specific scanner.

Oddly, I have a Evernote account which I haven't used with anger, so I think it's time to play.

Ah ok ta, I think there seems to be a few evernote features on the evernote edition software but nothing worth the extra cost.

Also don't forget you get 12 months evernote premium on 02 (all you need to get that is a free O2 payg sim)

I've bough it (at a higher price) for home use and I also have a couple of flat bed scanners. I've mostly used this Fujitsu for scanning a lot of old books printed 30-40 years ago. These books were printed on acid type paper and all have now yellow and brittle pages. I have a heavy duty A3 guillotine which I use to cut the book binders and then I feed them to the Fujitsu scanner. After some software processing I end up with perfect PDF copies.

Price is now 329.99

Back to £299!
