Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 Document Scanner, under $290

I know some of these Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners are well regarded here, but I am not if this is one of those. Still, if you believe the MSRP of $483.99, then this is a very good deal

I'm a big fan of the ScanSnap series from way back. I currently have an S1500 but there's no further software support coming for the macOS for this model, apparently; that seems to be simply a marketing decision (i.e., forced upgrade of hardware). That burns me a bit and has me re-thinking staying with Fujitsu.

I need a viable alternative, though. FWIW, I don't use any of their management software (document or otherwise); I just use it as a scanner (my company has its own filing/storage system for scanned documents). I need something that's going to be supported for a few OSes, has autofeed with both-sides-at-once scanning, and the ability to send the scan to a variety of software options (PDF, photo, etc).



Make it a good day today.

keep an older Machine around and scan to a network folder, then sort/manage from another computer.

I kept a SCSI based industrial HP Scanner/ADF around, along w/ a G4 tower, much as s-t suggested, for many years, until a forced downsize turned the whole setup into a donation to our own Harbourmaster. Since then, all scanning has been handled by our 2007 vintage network model Brother MFC. The old HP was pretty much bulletproof, and IIRC, I think I bought a funky old SCSI cable from s-t at some point when switching from a G3 to the G4 tower (U2WSCSI card in G4 required new cable).

I did a scanner intensive database job for dental claims processing many years back, and we got a $7500 Fujitsu scanner as part of the solution. I've always been a fan of their ScanSnap product, but have never been able to justify it for personal use; but still a big fan. Seems like this might be a good deal, and in addition to the codes provided in the SD link, you might be able to use Staples rewards and/or other points and codes that may be available to you.
