    "This is a pretty good scanner. Not much sets it apart from your typical scanner other than speed. If you have a ton of documents to scan at once then this makes a great scanner. I have had to convert 500+ page information packets for my organization, and this scanner made it a lot easier."

    "This model is not Canon's best at all. I have the functions that it has and hate the functions that it's missing. It makes me a very sad puppy. :("

    "Thought I'd give it a shot, turns out it was a mistake. Difficult to figure out, a pain to get to work with Windows. Just not a great product in this day and age."

    "I have had the old, regular scanner for years. It got to be such a hassle to use it though, I just let it collect dust. I was shopping the other day and notice all the new options available. A easy send to cloud feature was really the thing that drew me in the most. That alone makes my life many times easier. A truly innovative product."

    "The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 is an impressive scanner as far the ease of setup and the blazing speed. I made the mistake of thinking this is a flatbed scanner, which is what I had in mind for my ideal scanner, so my bias is influencing the rating here somewhat, as is the fact that I've encountered some jamming while scanning. Overall this is an okay machine, though I can't call this a great flatbed scanner if it's not a flatbed!"

    "This scanner works well, and does the job. It's flat, and it can scan. It has a lot of questions answered to help troubleshoot for viewers to judge if this fits their needs."

    "While this is a good scanner, I would recommend searching elsewhere if you are looking for the actual flatbed aspect for a scanner. This does not contain a flatbed, as it simply shifts the paper through a reader, sort of like a shredder to scan your documents. This is great if you are in the market for something portable, but you are better off with something else if you need it in the office."

    "Although this is an older model, it has very high reviews and lots of them. It may not be the best and newest but it's a great option for a more affordable printer. "
