To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I now have one Fi7160, one SV600 and four of the discontinued S1500 (all Fujitsu) scanners (I used to have five of the S1500s but I sold one when I got the Fi7160). These are all workhorse scanners. I've never had a problem with any of them. I've worn out and replaced the paper separator tabs (these are a consumable) on 2 of the S1500 models, and they continue to work like new. I have probably scanned over a million pages on all of these scanners combined.
I have carried an S1500 scanner with me on airplanes (in the factory bag you can get). I taken it to meetings with my laptop, and it works great. The S1500 is a 20 ppm duplex scanner and the Fi7160 is 60 ppm duplex (120 images per minute because it can scan both sides of a page.) I have scanned 1000s of pictures. I scan business cards, ID cards, mixed documents, receipts, etc. It comes with a document sleeve for fragile documents.
The Fi7160 will fit in the same carry bag as the S1500 and I'm sure it would be just as durable. the Scansnap software is all you need. You can set up different profiles (as many as you want) and customize every scan setting, including auto OCR if you want. It interfaces with various cloud services (Evernote, Dropbox, One Drive, etc.) Scans to email. All of the models I've purchased include Adobe Acrobat full version which provides additional options to compress and optimize the PDFs.
The Fi7160 saves a lot of time over the S1500 and will pay for itself in the time you save within a month if you do any volume of scanning.
By adding additional pages during the scan as the feeder gets low on pages, you can continuous scan a few hundred pages.
The Fi7160 is the newest scanner in my "fleet" and I've had it for about 2 years. I've had absolutely no problems and it has scanned a few hundred thousand pages by now.
this does the job perfectly. quite, fast and efficient. very robust for many applications. image quality is excellent and works within a variety of environments. effortlessly separates pages while sheet feed scanning and can handle a thick stack. well made and solid. expensive but well worth it (you get what you pay for).
using this scanner in a very very busy clinic environment, and we use this scanner almost 100 times a day. And the first fi-7160 we brought is still working perfectly after 3 years. Thus we brought another fi-7160 from Amazon since we need two scanner now.
Work perfectly with third party scanner software, and compatible with MacOS or Windows. Love this little thing. Just proving once again how much a perfect working product can help tremendously increasing productivity.
This is a professional scanner that is engineered to scan documents quickly and efficiently. Fantastic unit, reliable and easy to use. I have used this line of scanners for the past ten years, and have had absolutely no issues with them. I had to change to newer models due to compatibility with updated software for the business, and never due to failing or malfunctioning unit. In fact, after five years of use and close to 20 thousand scanned sheets, the unit still sold for $300.
While this is a document scanner meant for an office, if you are into scanning magazines, this scanner will serve you well. Detail is incredible, and the colour reproduction is almost exact. I wish there was more customization in the software, and sometimes the software doesn't see the scanner, but otherwise this thing is amazing.
Très rapide avec une très bonne image. Il ne scanne pas des radiographies, dommage pour moi. Aussi, j’ai de documents un 1/2 pouce plus large qui ne rentrent pas. Je n’ai pas réussi à le mettre en réseau, pour qu’il soit utilisé par plusieurs ordinateurs. Donc, très rapide, mais il offre seulement les options de base, rien de wow. Assez cher pour les options de base.
The Fujitsu fi-7160 scanner is an excellent model; however, I didn't give it 5 stars because when I tried to register it directly with Fujitsu, I found out the serial number indicated it was grey market, which apparently is legal, but if it breaks within the warranty period, Fujitsu US is not obligated to repair or replace it. It's my understanding that grey market items need to be be sent to the home country of import for repairs, which would be a major hassle for most expensive and/or large purchases. I did not see anywhere in the Amazon site blurb that this item was grey market. Something like that should be indicated very boldly! My advice is always inquire from Amazon and their vendors, if the item is grey market (especially expensive purchases), since that information is not voluntarilystated, unless it's buried somewhere deep in extra fine print :)
