Of course, to be fair I took a look at the reviews that gave this product a 1-star rating to see what the case is with the poor reviews. For the most part, the main issue had to do with the installation of the scanner.

And out of those, most problems seem to have been user error when installing. In other words, most of the issues could have been easily been fixed if the users had asked for some support.


An overwhelming majority of buyers of the Fujitsu iX500 ScanSnap document scanner have been extremely pleased with their purchase. With all the bells and whistles that are included, all of your home business scanning jobs have just become much easier and more efficient.

With ScanSnap Sync and having the ability to connect to Wi-Fi this scanner truly will make your business a little bit easier.
