Commenter Shaun Benater asks “Hi, When will you be reviewing the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i? I look forward to reading your review.”
We already reviewed the S1300, so I followed up with a Fujitsu rep, who told me what the i stands for. Here is the answer:
The 1300i is 12ppm and the 1300 is 8ppm. … [W]e do have some new software links in the quick menu. … [Y]ou can update a 1300 with the ‘online update’ to enable the new Quick Menu features.
In short, the i is quite a bit faster, and the software has been upgraded. While you can’t get the speed without buying a new ScanSnap S1300i, you can get the new software updates for your current ScanSnap.
