Can anyone suggest me a good scanner wherein i can scan and save all the imp UAE docs(which is a lot) [R]2 years, 1 month agoSept. 11, 2017

Sigh....what will you guys do without me? What you need is this: Fujitsu Scansnap ix500. https://www.amazon.com/Fujitsu-PA03656-B005-Image-Scanner-ScanSnap/dp/B00ATZ9QMO
After buying this product.....many women have asked to marry me and have babies. I promise if you're a girl...you'll do the same.

Its not an obsession, its from doing thorough research. This past July I was in need of a new laptop for work, I tested out the 2015 13" rMBP for 14 days and ended up returning it and then getting an XPS 13 9350. Right now the XPS 13 is the laptop to beat. At $800-900 its an exception value. A comparable Macbook Pro would be $1300, well over $500 for similar specs.
I do the same thing with every electronic purchase. I just spent the last week researching duplex document scanners. I finally ended up with the Fujitsu X500i. Yes its more expensive than what I wanted to spend but its the best value when it comes to performance per dollar.
I'm not pro Apple, I'm not pro Android. I'm anti Fanboy and pro technology.
Can you recommend a Wireless Colour Laser Printer that also Scans in Duplex with a Feeder. [R]3 years, 5 months agokheszi posted submission on printers.
April 24, 2016
I am looking for a Wireless Colour Laser Printer That also scans on both sides with a feeder. So I can put for example 4 double sided pages into the feeder and it will scan all 4 docs into a PDF without me having to do anything but press few buttons after feeding the pages into the feed tray.
Not sure if this is possible
April 24, 2016
If you plan to scan on a regular basis and speed/reliability are of any importance to you, I would recommend getting a separate printer & scanner. Look at the Fujitsu ScanSnap, which a highly rated sheetfed scanner loaded with features. I use and have sold many of these scanners and all the users are very pleased with them:

An auto-feed scanner is stupidly efficient. Heck you could buy it from Amazon, finish your scanning and return it...
The one in my office can do 80 pages per minute.
Flatbeds might be 2 pages per minute. Hippo would be scanning for years.

I bought a Fujitsu ScanSnap to help me go paperless. It's expensive ($400), but the thing is a beast. It's really fast and it can OCR your documents immediately while it scans the documents. So you can turn all your papers into searching electronic PDF's very easily. Buy a shredder, and all those papers sitting around will be gone.
[Question] What OCR software or website do you use, that is inexpensive or free? [R]3 years, 8 months agoAmator posted submission on mac.

Feb. 16, 2016
I'm curious about this myself. I recently read David Sparks excellent Paperless ebook, but I don't have $415 to drop on a ScanSnap right now. My plan for the present is to download PDFPen Scan for $7 on my iPhone for anything I need scanned at present. That software includes a pretty-decent OCR algorithm from what I understand.
Evernote premium subscriptions also include OCR-ing any files you upload, so that might be an option as well.
[serious] So I have many boxes of photos going back about 150 years. They are in a complete disarray, loose, and unidentified. I have no idea what to do with this stuff. Inherited from at least six generations of family in the US. I am now 62 and I have no idea what to do with it all. [R]4 years agoYvoArcher posted submission on TheWayWeWere.
Oct. 11, 2015
I'm in Seattle. I need help. I do not have a car so taking all this stuff to scan it (as suggested in other places where I have posted this dilemma) is not helping me.
I think I'm looking for somebody to hold my hand and tell me what to do?
If I don't save it, it will all be lost. There's a big pile of it on my desk right now, next to the vodka, toast, and ice cream.
What do old people do when they find themselves the last curators of more than a century of family photos? My inclination is to put them all back in a box.
Oct. 11, 2015
I am in a similar predicament. I am 52 and seem to have inherited all the family photos and documents going back to the 1850's. Who are all these people? I'm hazy at best on most of it but, like you, realize that after me no one knows so feel I should do something. I also live on the other side of the country from where my family is from so the local historical society would have zero interest.
The options I came up with for me were:
Get the archival photo albums and insert them all in there and write in as much info as I know - time consuming and not for me.
Take them to be scanned - hard if you can't get there as you mentioned.
Use an online services where they send you a box that you fill up and mail back to them. They will sort and scan and send you back the originals and the scans on DVD's. ScanMyPhotos does this. For about $200 you will send you a prepaid box that you fill up. You can call USPS to pick it up.
Dump them all back in a box and let someone else sort them out.
And finally the option that worked for me:
I got a ScanSnap iX500 scanner from Amazon. I decided my goal was to attach as much info as possible from what I knew - not just to scan them. Without the info they were not much good to anyone.
The scanner IS NOT high quality scans for photos. The scans are actually pretty good but it scans really, really REALLY fast.
I was able to scan all the photos and documents in a matter of a couple of weeks doing it a couple of hours a day. The scanner scans both sides at once so any notes on the back of the photos were added to the photo and both sides of letters and documents were scanned.
All the scans were dumped into my Google Drive folder on my desktop so I can share them with others (I shared it with various relatives and asked for info on any that could help that I didn't know offhand). I can further organize them from there - I made folders for different decades).
There is a place in the description field to add in details - both I and some of my relatives were able to fill in some details:
>YvoArcher 6/1: I think this is Aunt Myrtle in Huntington Beach.
>Carol 6/22: Yes. I remember when the photo was taken. It was 1958 at Uncle Jimmy's birthday party.
Then I can search for Aunt Myrtle and all the photos where she is tagged come up.
Once you enter in as much information as you are able - hopefully there are a few relatives out there that can help you - you can copy all the files to a external portable drive and place it in the box with the photos.
I can send you some step by step instructions on how to do this if you are interested.
I'm new to the Surface Family and I have a few questions [R]4 years, 4 months agosmokehousemaple posted submission on Surface.

First off, this community seems awesome! Now to my questions...
1) What is a good Micro SD Card? Can I use it to store programs?
2) What are some tricks that make using the Surface as a student even better?
3) What are some of the Surface's limits?
4) Are there any accessories that are nice, but not always necessary?
5) Finally, what are any general tips that you wish you had when you first got your surface?
June 9, 2015
4) Definitely buy the app Drawboard PDF. If you can get all of your textbooks in pdf form there will be no point in even having a backpack.
This price tag may seem pretty steep for a college kid but if you are about to begin four years I would highly recommend getting this scanner. [http://www.amazon.com/Fujitsu-ScanSnap-iX500-Scanner-PA03656-B005/dp/B00ATZ9QMO/ref=pdsim2292?ie=UTF8&refRID=0MV2ARMA1J1KTKWBGXKA] (http://www.amazon.com/Fujitsu-ScanSnap-iX500-Scanner-PA03656-B005/dp/B00ATZ9QMO/ref=pdsim2292?ie=UTF8&refRID=0MV2ARMA1J1KTKWBGXKA) I use it for work all the time and its the finest piece of engineering I have ever touched.
Combining handwritten notes and electronic storage [R]5 years, 2 months agoAug. 2, 2014
Aug. 2, 2014
Have you considered getting a document scanner? A good one can run you a few hundred dollars, but one of my good friends uses one for all of his notes. At the end of every day he takes his stack of notes, drops them into a Fujitsu SnapSanner, and with a few custom Apple Scripts everything gets sorted and uploaded to Dropbox and/or Evernote. Since all of the notes are OCR'ed, indexed, and optimized on the fly, the file sizes are manageable, the scans are very clear, and the notes are searchable. I've been eying this model and will likely pick one up for use this year.
I tried to go the MS Surface Pro route with both the SP1 and SP2 but always ended up giving up due to limitations of the Surface (poor battery life, screen size sucked, the height of the surface itself strained my hand/wrist/arm after a while, and I'm not a huge fan of Windows 8). Looks like the SP3 resolved almost all of the things I didn't like about using the SP1/SP2 (still runs Windows 8 but hey, nothing is perfect).
Scanning and digital filing? [R]5 years, 8 months agoFeb. 13, 2014
Feb. 14, 2014
If you are going to scan a lot - then definitely get yourself a scanner which can automate things for you a bit.
I recently bought a ScanSnap ix500 scanner. This thing is simply amazing. It automatically pulls in pages, scans front and back in one swipe and can organize documents to various folders.
One feature I never thought I would use, is the scan to a mobile device. I can scan papers and send them to my iPad directly without having to turn on my PC.
Sure, this scanner is not cheap - but it is highly recommended. Check out the reviews on amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Fujitsu-ScanSnap-iX500-Scanner-PA03656-B005/dp/B00ATZ9QMO/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1392355817&sr=8-1&keywords=scansnap+ix500

I have a kid now so the latter two have sharply increased and I really don't bother to go back and delete really out of focus stuff or not so great pics. I've done some transfers from DV tape and have some more to go along with VHS digitizing. I'd like to work in a nice scanner into the 2014 budget to digitize old photos, important docs, bills, and receipts.

My in-laws are looking for a high quality scanner which can provide good resolution scanning for photographs to include slides and transparencies. Scanning these will the primary role for this item. I understand that most tech is never BIFL but I was wondering if there are any people who have a good scanner now and use it for similar purposes with good results. If this scanner is part of a combo unit with copy and printing capability that is great, but I know that most combos have a lower dpi rating for the scanner module. Thanks for any replies.

We've got decades of old adoption files that we want to scan in and store electronically.
We'd like to be able to search through them based on a few ID numbers that are stamped on the documents.
We have a line on the right hardware, but as far as managing the documents my understanding is that a DMS is the way to go; one with reliable OCR sufficient to read standard-font printed numbers. Doesn't have to be able to figure out handwriting or anything.
This can run on either linux or windows; we have a machine set aside specifically for the purpose.
Do you have any advice on a go-to system we should look at? Or several?
Or a better place to ask?

If you get a ScanSnap, go with the desktop and not the portable version. It will OCR as it scans and Evernote is great for organization, tagging and searching. I've seen it used at zoos for their record management.
To remove ALL paper media from my house, what portable scanner scans the fastest? [R]6 years, 3 months agodjdementia posted submission on minimalism.
July 8, 2013
I want to carry that scanner in a backpack / gym-bag so I can scan my papers even when on the go. I hope for my house to become THE most paperless home in my town!
I want everything of mine digitized, that was originally in paper form. Also, I want my life to be easier and feel less cluttered. I can handle digital clutter much better than the physical kind.
So if there's a scanner I can take with me all the time, that scans the fastest of them all, that'd be great.
The reason why I'd want a portable scanner and not just an ordinary one is because if I'm taking mass-transit and it's a long ride, it helps to have something to do (like scanning and recycling my papers).
Same for when I have to wait at a DMV, sit through a boring sermon at church (while away from most others to minimize the distraction) and anything where I'd feel inclined to get imaginative just to pass the time.
