Introducing the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i – and Win One!

ScanSnap S1300iSo, apparently it is New ScanSnap Friday today! Today Fujitsu is announcing the ScanSnap S1300i which (obviously) replaces the ScanSnap S1300, and you can win one from DocumentSnap. Read on for details on that.

I am hoping to get my hands on a review copy for you, but in the meantime here are the key new details.

Hardware

The ScanSnap S1300i hardware is cross-platform and is basically the same as the S1300, with one key difference: it is 1.5x faster. So, instead of 8 pages per minute, it is now 12 ppm. Nice speed bump.

Software

Fujitsu is also announcing some software updates that will come along with the S1300i:

  • Mobile: There will now be an Android version of their Scan To Mobile app, so you can now scan from the S1300i to your Android device over your local network[1]
  • Dropbox: If you have the Dropbox client installed, you’ll now have the option to scan to a folder on Dropbox through the ScanSnap Manager interface, and there will be a Dropbox Quick Menu option.
  • ScanSnap Folder: This is Windows only. Apparently this will give you a way to scan to a special folder on your computer, and then have that scan be attached to a web application like Gmail or a Windows application like Quickbooks. To be honest, I haven’t quite wrapped my head around this one yet, so I am looking forward to trying it out.

As always, I will keep my eyes open on the online shopping sites and let you know when the S1300i is available to purchase.

The ScanSnap S1300i is available on the online sites like Amazon, so check it out.

Win A ScanSnap S1300i from DocumentSnap!

I am super excited to announce the very first DocumentSnap ScanSnap giveaway: The fine folks at Fujisu have hooked me up with one ScanSnap S1300i scanner to give away to one lucky reader on Friday, June 29 at 12pm PST.

There are two ways to enter, and the winner will be chosen randomly:

Method 1: Twitter: Follow DocumentSnap (@documentsnap) and tweet something like the following:

I want to win the ScanSnap S1300i from @DocumentSnap #dss1300i http://dcsp.me/MBZNef

(The @DocumentSnap and #dss1300i need to be there!)

Method 2: Comment: Not on Twitter? Not a problem. Leave a comment below and tell me about the paper that you want to digitize.

  • Winners will be contacted by DM on Twitter or e-mail for commenters, so make sure you follow @DocumentSnap and/or enter your correct e-mail address in the comment (don’t worry, only I can see it).
  • Only one entry per person please.
  • The winner will be drawn randomly at 12pm PST on Friday, June 29. Entries must be received by then.
  • Due to shipping restrictions, the contest is only open to winners in the United States and Canada. Sorry about that.
  • Good luck!
The drawing is now closed, and the winner was awesome DocumentSnap reader Cindy. Thanks for entering, everyone!

  1. Before someone asks, yes the scanner does need to be plugged into your computer. It works the same as the existing Scan To Mobile functionality.  ↩

    I would love to scan receipts and loose project documents!

    Thanks!

  2. Steven June 22, 2012 at 12:31 pm #

    Perfect timing! I am just getting into going paperless, and this would be great to win! *fingers crossed*

  3. Kay June 22, 2012 at 1:34 pm #

    Recipes! I have a ton and am trying yo go paperless. I would be thrilled to win.

  4. Martin June 22, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

    Several boxes full of everything: ideas, record$$, ideas, manuals, ideas, mementos, clippings, a ton of misc. and… you know. Crossing my ink-smudged fingers.

  5. Paul Knopf June 22, 2012 at 2:13 pm #

    Would certainly help my paperless ambitions

  6. techorgmama June 22, 2012 at 2:22 pm #

    I'm pretty paperless myself but I'd love to help my mom go digital!

  7. Karen McGowan June 22, 2012 at 2:22 pm #

    my son just finished college and i'm helping him start a paperless lifestyle. first pile to tackle is all the student loan paperwork!

  8. andrew_lee June 22, 2012 at 2:27 pm #

    I'd scan a lot of receipts.

  9. BrandonN June 22, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    I have piles of documents waiting to be scanned and shredded.

  10. TeddyTech June 22, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

    My desk is buried in receipts, tax papers, and piles of whatnot. This would be a great help.

  11. Jim June 22, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    I have a lot of research materials from grad school that I'd love to digitize. Thanks for hosting the contest!

  12. Natasha June 22, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

    This would be great for scanning client files! I plan to go completely paperless.

  13. @albert1028 June 22, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

    I want to go paperless, but more importantly, all of my paper and books that I've had in my graduate studies pursuing a PHD in clinical psychology needs to be kept so that I can review them for future reference in helping me be a better therapist and be kept up to date.

  14. Rick June 22, 2012 at 7:01 pm #

    I would love this scanner to update my old S510 which does not work on my Mac. I use it to scan invoices and other important documents.

  15. Chris June 22, 2012 at 7:21 pm #

    Oh to get all my medical records digital..seems they come multiple times and from multiple sources, ie: doctor, anithesiologist , hospital, insurance..

  16. Joel Neely June 22, 2012 at 8:03 pm #

    In addition to the standard uses for receipts, medical records, and household paper, I have family memorabilia that I'd like to preserve, such as childhood drawings by now-grown children, newspaper clippings, and documents from reunions, all of which could be shared electronically after being scanned.

  17. mtruism June 22, 2012 at 9:14 pm #

    I would love to win one of these to scan receipts and all of the bills/literature that companies insist on sending me even though I've opted in to every "paperless" option available. Thanks!

  18. CdB June 22, 2012 at 10:50 pm #

    Have a Canon flatbed scanner but find the interface so poor that it’s not convenient enough for everyday scanning of receipts, bills, etc. so I am nowhere near paperless. ScanSnap would be a treat.

  19. Marty June 22, 2012 at 11:16 pm #

    I have turned to Evernote as a way of going paperless. This Scansnap would be invaluable in moving years and years of accumulated paper into the cloud.

  20. iNaku June 23, 2012 at 12:40 am #

    I would scan and digitize all the documents in my file safe and my filing cabinet to reduce paper storage and just keep electronic copies in my home server. The flatbed scanner of my 3-in-1 printer without a document feeder is too cumbersome for the job. This ScanSnap S1300i is just what I need!

  21. Alison p-h June 23, 2012 at 3:01 am #

    Thanks for the opportunity to win. I am slowly going paperless and a scanner would definitely complete the process. I would scan old invoices and statements before the 7-year purge. I would scan receipts for a more concise home inventory report. Plus I would scan all the pages from the magazines that I have ripped out in the last decade +. Thanks again! Alison p-h

  22. Lisa H June 23, 2012 at 3:52 am #

    There so many ways I like to use it. I want to go as paperless as possible at home and at work. This would help me scan what I already have, and then stay on top of things! I'd scanner bills, receipts, recipes, etc. At home. I'd scan lesson plans, committee and other notes and more at work!

  23. Key June 23, 2012 at 6:15 am #

    Would love to have this to scan legal pleadings and correspondence.

  24. Pcal June 23, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

    would want to scan all the important papers, mementos, photos etc. to my computer; this scanner could make it all happen…

  25. Laura in Texas June 23, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    I love my ScanSnap S1500M and use it daily in my home office. I would love to have the new more portable ScanSnap to keep at my office!

  26. Toby June 23, 2012 at 6:04 pm #

    Like the previous poster, I use my S1500M at home but would have great use a portable on at work to use it to scan all my papers and other notes. Great! Thanks for the offer :-)

  27. Mike June 24, 2012 at 7:40 am #

    I have a s1500 for home/office use but this would make me so much more efficient as I could use this in the office and scan in real time and on business trips instead of waiting to get home.

  28. Alan Fowler June 24, 2012 at 2:57 pm #

    I’d use it for the opening of my new business!

  29. Noland Miller June 24, 2012 at 7:37 pm #

    I want to be able to scan anything I want to keep.

  30. Margaret June 24, 2012 at 8:09 pm #

    I have boxes of teaching materials to scan and access via Evernote.

  31. Brad in CA June 24, 2012 at 9:58 pm #

    My SS5100 is getting long in the tooth and I'd love the chance to win a 1300i! The 5100M has mis-scanned so many things I've nearly abandoned it until I can afford a replacement.

  32. Myer June 25, 2012 at 4:59 am #

    I have an accumulating pile of papers to scan, varied kinds, saving up because a scansnap isn’t cheap. to win one would be a dream!

  33. altaredspaces June 25, 2012 at 7:27 am #

    Many of the clients in my classes are concerned about reducing clutter. Paper tops the list of projects we tackle together. I guess it's time for me to figure this out! Not to mention how much I've wanted a scanner for a photo project I'm doing. Thanks!

  34. Natalie Currie June 25, 2012 at 7:39 am #

    As a coach who supports the green community, it's time I go paperless!

  35. miriam June 25, 2012 at 10:06 am #

    The 10 file drawers of paper that have accumulated over the years are in need of going paperless. This would be a great way to start such a project. Thanks for the opportunity.

  36. Marty in Chitown June 25, 2012 at 12:55 pm #

    I'd love to win a scanner like a Fujitsu S1300i, but I'm still a bit mystified by how I can get receipts automatically posted into an Excel spreadsheet so I can organize my hundreds (if not thousands) of business receipts over the last three years! Fingers crossed!!!!

  37. Simon June 25, 2012 at 4:04 pm #

    My wife has the ScanSnap S1500M, but I am moving away for 6 months. Don't know what i will do without a proper document scanner: let the paper pile up I guess:(

  38. Karmen June 25, 2012 at 4:11 pm #

    I would scan my boxes and boxes of school notes. I have everything from grade 7 through university! Time to reduce the fire hazard that is stored in my mother-in-law's basement :)

  39. Bill June 25, 2012 at 7:59 pm #

    I have been the proud owner of an S1500 for years now, which works great with the Win7 Ultimate 64-bit running on my laptop. A couple years ago, I upgraded my cell to the Droid X, which is when Android devices entered my technical tool belt. And most recently, I am the proud owner of an iPad3, which I bought to help me stay paperless as I'm traveling much more in my new job role. I am now a great test lab for an S1300i and will commit to running it through its paces… cross-platform devices (Win, Android, iOS) + portability (traveling) + scanning & software capability (vendors who send me invoices are not paperless!).

  40. Babs June 26, 2012 at 8:01 am #

    I am an artist/designer and I have 30 years of drawings (I am supposed to copy them all for copyrighting)…I am a bit of an art hoarder at the moment..I had to move in with my mom who is having health problems and has the opposite problem…she has ocd and can't stand having anything around, so she is a compulsive shredder…both ways neither of us can find what we need to…if i could train her to scan , then shred, it would be like heaven for both of us!

  41. Val June 26, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

    I have so much scanning that I need to do! I currently have stacks of paper that I need to scan, from notes and articles, to receipts! Going paperless is my dream!

  42. Yelena June 26, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    I would absolutely love to scan all the papers I've collected through the years. Need to get my family freed from the clutter!

  43. Louis June 27, 2012 at 9:04 am #

    I am being overwhelmed by the volume of old papers that need to be scanned, and a faster scanner would really help.

  44. Rich Hall June 27, 2012 at 9:05 am #

    I love the ScanSnap S1300. I would love to have the new ScanSnap S1300i to simplify my life more quickly!

  45. Michael June 27, 2012 at 9:07 am #

    So far I have digitized bills for the last 12 months. Now I'm working on important documents (i.e. deeds, closing docs, etc). Would love to have the new ScanSnap scanner.

  46. Anita M June 27, 2012 at 9:08 am #

    I am an Accountant trying to go paperless and would love the new S1300i. I

  47. Mark Emery June 27, 2012 at 9:09 am #

    I have a desk…I’m just not sure where it is. I know it is there being held up by two file cabinets…it looks like a huge pile of paper, but I can see an opening under my monitor, so I know there is a desk under there somewhere. I need to get all this paper digitized and into my computer instead of onto my desk.

  48. Mary Ellen June 27, 2012 at 9:09 am #

    The new ScanSnap 1300i sounds wonderful – I really like the Dropbox integration feature!

  49. Lynn June 27, 2012 at 9:10 am #

    I am in the process of going paperless in my law practice. The Scansnap S1300i would be useful in accomplishing this.

  50. Jay Hinkens June 27, 2012 at 9:17 am #

    I tell everyone that my ScanSnap 1500M is the best technology purchase I have ever made. It runs and runs without a problem. The portability of the new scanner would allow me to take it home and scan my piles of paper files into Evernote. Then I can shred the paper into rabbit bedding!

  51. Valarie D. June 27, 2012 at 9:23 am #

    Been wanting to go paperless for years and can't seem to get started! Have boxes of receipts, pictures, etc. and can't find any of them when I need to. Would love to win the scanner and get the motivation and proper equipment to get started!

  52. CCEAVickie June 27, 2012 at 9:27 am #

    Just got a ScanSnap two months ago and it has changed my office! Love, love, love it!!! Now need it for home :)

  53. Chris June 27, 2012 at 9:30 am #

    I'd love to help my family get more organized – need to scan bills, leases, etc!

  54. pam June 27, 2012 at 9:30 am #

    Everything, recipes, receipts, car maintenence, I am going to be off from work next week, will be working on getting organized.

  55. Dennis June 27, 2012 at 9:32 am #

    I would love a better scanner. I use mine to scan every piece of paper I can. And most certainly all financial documents. I use a lot of what Brooks has taught.

  56. Mark June 27, 2012 at 9:38 am #

    I am getting my personal documents scanned slowly but surely, plus taking care of new stuff as it comes in. Being able to have an on-the-go scanner would make my small business even easier to manage.

  57. snied June 27, 2012 at 9:39 am #

    We have recently moved our business record-keeping to a paperless system. Since I often work from home, though, it means constantly transporting our one scanner (a ScanSnap S1300). Having a scanner in the office would make things so much more efficient: we scan incoming checks and deposit slips, invoices, contracts, forms, statements, receipts, and anything else that we can't receive electronically in the first place. When I have the scanner at home, it scans kids' artwork, bills, letters and cards I want to save, insurance contracts, and anything else that doesn't have to stay in paper form.

  58. Michael J. June 27, 2012 at 9:42 am #

    I'd scan my receipts for my expense reports, while I was on the road!

  59. Martin Harvey June 27, 2012 at 9:43 am #

    I would really appreciate the ability to have a portable and fully featured scanner I can drop into my backpack, take on vacations, easily help out friends who are scanner "challenged", and generally be more flexible than my firmly planted all-in-one printer/scanner.

  60. Deborah Robson June 27, 2012 at 9:49 am #

    Oh, wow. Where to start? I guess with the research I do on sheep breeds, especially rare ones, which is piling up around me. I have a lot digitized, but I'm afraid I'll lose something critical that isn't. Class lists from my teaching gigs in several countries. Receipts for travel that needs to be reimbursed. All the family stuff, because Mom is now in her late 80s and responsibility for keeping the family memorabilia together is falling to the next generation. It's endless. I have paper everywhere, and would I love to have a clear desk to work on.

  61. Leslie June 27, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    Just starting to go paperless so this would help speed things along for sure!

  62. cdfarms June 27, 2012 at 9:55 am #

    I would love to win this new scanner, with all the freight tickets and farm invoices, the extra speed would be AWESOME!! Pick me!! Ha Ha!! Thanks for opportunity to enter to win!

  63. Donald June 27, 2012 at 9:57 am #

    I'm trying to go from two file cabinets down to one in my office. The more paperless, the better.

  64. Deb June 27, 2012 at 10:02 am #

    I would so LOVE this scanner for my classroom! The connection with dropbox combined with dropbox's shared folder abilities combine to create maximum potential for a more paperless classroom!

  65. Robyn June 27, 2012 at 10:14 am #

    I love my ScanSnap 1500, should live to get a 1300 for my son, who just completed his masters in finance, and would love to go paperless.

  66. Zarkov June 27, 2012 at 10:15 am #

    I'd scan the huge amount of medical files I have accumulated!

  67. Tamara June 27, 2012 at 10:15 am #

    I have been increasing my use of evernote and I am trying filethis fetch… It sure would be nice to get my old papers in Evernote,too.

  68. Julie June 27, 2012 at 10:28 am #

    As a CPA I am tied to paper it seems for eternity but having a state of art scanner would guide me to a life of freedom from encumbrances of the heaviest sorts (paper). If I were to win a scanner I would begin by scanning all the stored documents in my home office and then host a shredding party! What a joy that would be. :)

  69. Leanne Storey June 27, 2012 at 10:36 am #

    I want to digitize everything! Receipts, seminar manuals, letters, tax returns, marriage & birth certificates (keep the original of course), medical records, invoices, letters, handwritten notes from classes. Anything that will go through the scansnap s1300i.

  70. Shirley Anne Calder June 27, 2012 at 10:40 am #

    Whoa!- It would be so great to win the scanner, I am 75yr and just got a computer and now to scan all the papers from a business & life . No excuse to be an hoader with papers.

  71. S. Spencer June 27, 2012 at 10:44 am #

    Well, winning a much more portable fast scanner would be wonderful as currently I'm only able to scan my backlog when at home even though I have a laptop pc; likewise with the 1300i, I could be caught up even faster from a 35 year [and 3 generation] backlog! Being an executor for numerous deceased relatives is an honour but a huge responsibility and involves mountains of paper, the information contained does need to be kept even if the bulk of the paper does not.

  72. Gary S. June 27, 2012 at 10:58 am #

    What perfect timing. I just started looking at going paperless at my home office to get rid of the general bills, receipts and documentation clutter as well as digitizing my family photographs. Winning this ScanSnap S1300i would make that a reality. Thank you for making this scanner available for some lucky winner. I hope it's me, but if not, congratulations to whoever wins it!

  73. Bill M June 27, 2012 at 11:07 am #

    Two large file drawers of still valuable class notes and another two full of work reference docs. All await the s1300i.

  74. Ronald Williams SR June 27, 2012 at 11:25 am #

    I scan all important papers that I want to keep including receipts, brochures, and statements that I receive by mail (which is not many). Scanning has changed my outlook on productivity.

  75. Dave June 27, 2012 at 11:27 am #

    I've been wanting a ScanSnap forever but still can't wrap my head around the way Fujitsu treats the Mac version of Adobe Acrobat they bundle… Please enter me in the drawing for the S1300i

  76. Deirdre C. Grimes June 27, 2012 at 11:37 am #

    I have a pile of important documents floating around my office that keep it from being the streamlined space I would truly like to have. A new ScanSnap S1300i could help make the transformation!

  77. Jackie Glinkie June 27, 2012 at 11:44 am #

    My Mom has her important papers in grocery bags stuffed in a trunk and other various places. She has no filing setup at all, surely she would benefit from a ScanSnap.
    I have been given the task of scanning all of my Husband's and my Mom's business papers. At our home office we use the ScanSnap daily, but I would love to have another ScanSnap to help my Mom go paperless at her store office.

  78. Con Star June 27, 2012 at 11:44 am #

    Before I get exposed on "Hoarders", I need to get all those piles of paper neatly scanned!!!

  79. Matt Sullivan June 27, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    I’ve been going paperless for sometime but my system/workflow is incomplete due to the lack of a fast scanner. In the meantime (meaning until I win this scanner ;), I use my iPhone along with Genius Scan Pro iOS app. It’s very good really.

    Good luck to everyone.

    Matt

  80. Dallee June 27, 2012 at 12:28 pm #

    I'd love to scan the manuscript of a novel written by my now deceased mother — she had been published once to great reviews and was a magnificent writer.

  81. Don J J carroll June 27, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    For years I have retained a variety of receipts and other data that have resulted in overflowing file cabinets. About a year ago I started following web sites related to the topic of "Going Paperless". ex. MacPower Users, and now with tips from them and others I am ready to dive in. If I happened to win this SnapScan Fujitsu ScanSnap 1300i it would be a message from someone to get cracking at "Going Paperless, now!

  82. Fred June 27, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    Greetings Brooks! I can't thank you enough for your suggestions. I have boxes and boxes of invoices and bank statements that I need to get rid of. I have barely enough room to get to my desk so I can work on the computer as it is. I am finding it hard to make time to scan on a regular basis. Perhaps it is because my flatbed scanner is sooo slow.

  83. Bob L June 27, 2012 at 1:18 pm #

    I would love to have the new ScanSnap to scan my monthly bills and statements and begin going paperless in my home office.

  84. Brian L. June 27, 2012 at 1:20 pm #

    Hi Brooks, I have a pile of paper money under my mattress (dollar bills, English pounds, Euros etc) and would like to win the scanner so I can scan the money and then either shred it or throw in trash. This way I will sleep better at night…

  85. Herb Lonb June 27, 2012 at 1:30 pm #

    Organizationally challenged, a scanner would be a huge assist.

  86. Ron S June 27, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    Would love the ability to scan larger documents like maps etc. perhaps in parts then have ability to merge docs into one finished product.

  87. Jim Erwin June 27, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

    I would like for my wife to scan all of her papers at her office. She is always looking for a missing documents and gets stressed out.

  88. Historian June 27, 2012 at 3:03 pm #

    I have 20 file boxes of dissertation files to digitize . . .

  89. Brian_sg June 27, 2012 at 3:18 pm #

    I want to start by scanning all my old files at home. I then want to get my whole company paperless. I'mn tired of storing old files in expensive storage facilities that cannot be accessed easily

  90. Brad Smith June 27, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    Wonderful competition, Brooks and thank you. Am currently doing the scanning the LONG way via flatbed. Would love to be able to scan my parents ancestry and family history including their documents along with my own everyday stuff. Mainly because I need to archive for the future due to my vision loss.

  91. Daria June 27, 2012 at 3:47 pm #

    I refuse to pay to put 15 plastic boxes of PAPER in storage before trying to sell my house!! — I’ll also be celebrating my big”5-0″ this year and as the brain slows down, I’d love to know WHERE all my papers are…like in the computer! I think the computer is less “stressed” seeking documents than I am searching mindlessly through boxes…that’s what I would do with the ScanSnap s1300i….Go Document Snap!!!

  92. colbyray June 27, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    I'd scan the 6 inch pile of documents sitting on my desk that I keep putting off scanning because the scanner at my office is a HUGE pain to work with.

  93. Jay June 27, 2012 at 4:42 pm #

    I have been waiting for the new version after hearing a rumour from http://unclutterer.com/. Love to get one.

  94. Jan June 27, 2012 at 5:20 pm #

    Love to get a portable unit! I use the 1500 extensively to digitize docs in an accounting office. Now to have one for client onsite to feed back documents to the office through Dropbox. Beats using online faxing to get docs back to the office.
    Good luck to all. Great prize!

  95. Jane June 27, 2012 at 5:59 pm #

    Where would I begin? With the piles on my home office desk, then the recipes, then dive in to the file drawers!!

    I have boxes and boxes of items to scan on my quest to go paperless. Pretty overwhelming but hoping the Fujitsu scanner will give me the big kick I need!

    Brooks ..you have no idea what a great thing it would be to be able to really go paperless and dump
    decades of receipts, documents etc. I could gain back 50% more room in my home office!!!

  98. Mike in MA June 27, 2012 at 8:37 pm #

    I would like to win the scan and use it in my office as well

    We bought the 1500M but since we're scanning 50 years worth of documents we could use the streamlining of separate machines. It would be totally sweet to have one that works on USB power as well so we can double team on the laptop and desktop

    I currently scan important stuff on my flatbed scanner. It does a good job but hand loading each piece of paper and scanning is very slow. So I am not scanning everything I should be like a lot of bills, and insurance documents that just take too long. This sabotages what I am trying to do but until I can afford a document scanner, I just do what I can in the short amount of time I have.

  101. Robbin June 27, 2012 at 10:07 pm #

    Tax forms, bills, receipts, old manuals, (new manuals,) the list seems endless. 30 years of paper in boxes stuffed into closets. As you all know, a flatbed scanner does *not* cut it!

  102. Douglas Bull June 27, 2012 at 10:27 pm #

    Just started the digital office process. This scanner would be great at the office with my laptop. Hope to win.

    Enjoy my S1500- great machine, and it's helped chew through the piles of old records in my home office. The S1300i would be great for business trips and maybe just for my regular office desk!

  104. Anil June 27, 2012 at 11:59 pm #

    I have tons of paper at home and at work dating back to my college days of 31 years. Yes, I am that old! I even have my kindergarten report cards that I want to scan. Magazine articles that cannot be found on the internet, financial records, professional training notes etc. Hope to win that S1300i and become paperless one day :-)

    Hundreds of theater and concert programs for a start. Then, virtually everything in my office.

  106. Diana June 28, 2012 at 4:56 am #

    My ScanSnap S1500 (coupled with Evernote & doxo) is a life saver! I have scanned my "Product Manuals & Home Receipts", so when there is a problem with an appliance or device in our home I no longer have to dig through files. A quick search on evernote and there it is;)

  107. Cindy Johnson June 28, 2012 at 4:58 am #

    I am in the process of digitizing years of records in my private practice as a psychologist. The scanner I am using is old and slow, so the new ScanSnap would be a vast time saver. Thanks for the giveaway and awesome articles!

    My mother is 83 years old and has a large collection of knitting, sewing and craft patterns, many with her own notes and modifications. I would love to scan and organize them.

  109. Tricia June 28, 2012 at 6:24 am #

    The possibilities are endless! So much paper stored — old tax returns and receipts, old school documents I want to keep, paper paper is everywhere!

  110. Alan June 28, 2012 at 7:01 am #

    I look forward to getting rid of the piles of paper which seem to flow to all of us.
    Best,
    Alan

  111. John O. June 28, 2012 at 7:06 am #

    I would love to scan household bills and receipts to get rid of some of this clutter.

  112. Tricia Hoekwater June 28, 2012 at 8:27 am #

    I'd love to win. I'm planning to scan all of my important life documents which would give me peace of mind.

  113. Rhe June 28, 2012 at 9:41 am #

    I have two great aunts, 91 and 93, on my Mom's side. Lately they've been getting their wills and trusts up to date. Since this part of my family came from the rural/mountainous North Carolina area, their values were always about family, not so much material goods. As a result, the largest portion of what my aunts have to leave their heirs consists of photos of when they were growing up. My aunts like as many personal interactions as they can get these days since they don't get out much, and often times only my aunts can tell who the people are in the photos. For these reasons, the ScanSnap 1300i would be ideal for gracefully digitizing this treasured history of ours.

  114. Carol in California June 28, 2012 at 10:48 am #

    I have three file cabinets full of paper, ready to go! And then take it with me to work.

  115. Remi G. June 28, 2012 at 2:32 pm #

    I have started a new business and I already have too much paper. The ScanSnap would be just the ticket to tame the beast.

  116. Don June 28, 2012 at 4:32 pm #

    We decided to go paperless because our tiny attic office in Wyoming was becoming so choked with paper that there was nowhere for the dog to lay down. Our Fujitsu S1500 is doing a great job helping us empty the filing cabinets into the shredder. An S1300i for business trips would prevent the unwanted paper from ever darkening our door in the first place.

  117. Myron Molnau June 28, 2012 at 7:20 pm #

    I have a lot of info all about the stamps in my stamp collection. I wantto eliminate all that paper (not the stamps!).

  118. JNS June 28, 2012 at 7:52 pm #

    Need to digitize filing cabinets full of technical documentation – and make it searchable, bliss!

  119. @bigvincec June 29, 2012 at 6:55 am #

    I need to digitize all my receipts, tax forms, and work-related documents

  120. Nancy June 29, 2012 at 7:51 am #

    I deal with reams if paper in the contracting world and am constantly seeking ways to "go paperless". This technology would certainly give my efforts a much needed boost!

  121. Sean June 29, 2012 at 9:57 am #

    Business correspondence, invoices receipts cards and kids records.

  122. Tim Gabriola BC June 29, 2012 at 11:11 am #

    Oh to copy all those bills that keep coming in.

  123. Lisa June 29, 2012 at 12:01 pm #

    I have 3 file cabinets and numerous boxes of paper to digitize. How I would love to win a ScanSnap.

  124. Gary June 29, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

    I'd love to scan business cards.

  125. @m_stewart June 29, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

    We have cabinets full of files, the floorboards groan under their weight. This scanner would be just the thing to dispense with these files once and for all.

  126. J Bel June 30, 2012 at 5:56 am #

    I'd primarily use it for receipts, warranties, & manuals.

  127. Joshua Sarver July 2, 2012 at 6:00 pm #

    I had a flatbed for the longest time. I even put my hardest effort into going paperless for about two years with a flatbed (lack of money), obviously it’s not working. I’d scan my personal papers (put into an encrypted DMG, of course), coursework/homework (college stuff), miscellaneous information packets, my diploma, mail/letters, business cards, receipts, paperwork that comes with a purchase. Anything that’s paper would go in my scanner…as it has been, just not efficiently.

  128. Losi July 3, 2012 at 7:01 am #

    Heh, so how scan to mobile works ? You need a pc or mac anyway :( !

  129. Dave aka Clutterman July 25, 2012 at 12:12 am #

    Just having a baby did not help with my budget for a Fujitsu SnapScan. I've been longing to go paperless for years and dreamt of the day I could scan away the mountain of receipts and paperwork cluttering what was once a place I could call home. The pile of receipts has become so large that I see less and less of my family (literally).

    I would be eternally grateful for this product. The SnapScan could restore order and harmony back into my life. Please, my baby needs a place to crawl and I need to be saved from this paper abyss! …Did I mention that this could save my marriage as well. Ok, I'm done.
