Like many of you I used to enjoy working with the Fujitsu scanners. Until Fujitsu’s idiot changes over the past few years:
- killing support for older scanners
- ScanSnap home’s teribble usability
- The insane licensing policy: one computer per scanner (except the ix500)
I need a scanner for my Mom in another state, where all she needs to do is insert the document(s) and click scan. All I need the Mac to do, is automatically save the scan as OCR’d PDF. Ideally with almost no interaction (clicking OK on a dialog box is fine.)
I’d have the scans saved to a DropBox folder on her Mac, that I’ll access on my Mac, rename and file.
At this point I’m leaning toward the Epson ES-500W. Are their downsides to this one, and others you’d recommend. I place high priority on Mac support, where the company hasn’t just hired a contractor for two months to produce the drivers.
Thanks in advance,
