Fujitsu Announces the ScanSnap iX500 to Replace the S1500
The iX500 is out, and you can read my review.
The big upgrade from the ScanSnap s1500 is the ability to scan without a computer. The iX500 has a built-in image processor and wi-fi, you can scan to memory or to a nearby mobile device. And Fujitsu provides its own app, so you don’t have to wrestle with Eye-Fi.
It’s a bit faster, too, at 25 ppm, and you can read about the other upgrades, like multi-feed detection and more-reliable paper-picking on the iX500 product page.
We’ve got a review unit on the way, and we’ll let you know if the iX500 is good enough to keep a ScanSnap at the top of our best scanner picks.
