Using the Fujitsu ScanSnap s1500M with a Mac is a beautiful thing in my paperless law office.
Arguably, like everything else, the scanner works better on a Mac than a PC (Mac fanboy joke). Favoritism aside, the S1500M works great with a Mac.
The S1500M is visually more appealing than the ScanSnap S1500 scanner. With a sleek pearl color and nifty blue light, the scanner would fit in seamlessly on the bridge of the USS Enterprise of Star Trek fame. Whether you use a Mac or a PC, the scanner will look nice on your desk.
The ScanSnap works like a dream on all types of documents. Load the documents, push the blue button, and the s1500M takes care of the rest. If the scanner happens to jam, 99% of the time the cause is a staple that was not removed (it cannot do everything for you).
The ScanSnap program interacts well with OSX. There was an initial compatibility issue with SnowLeopard, which has is no longer an issue due to a recent update. Since the update, the S1500M works like a dream with OSX, and there have been no problems to report.
Quite simply, the S1500M is a great device that will help any Mac user go paperless in a snap.
