I’ve been holding off buying a new Fujitsu ScanSnap to replace my perfectly good S1500M. Today I received a “customer loyalty” email, promoting $200 a bundle that includes the ScanSnap iX1500. Unfortunately, the bundle includes a “warranty” that I would never purchase — so the deal is effectively $100.
Aside from Fujitsu’s abysmal customer support and horrendous software, the licensing limitations of the iX 1500 are scaring me away. I can’t get a clear picture if I can use this on more than one computer without uninstalling and reinstalling the software. And it’s totally unclear how many times I can uninstall and reinstall. If I have to wipe and reinstall the operating system of a computer, is that a “new” installation? Is an upgrade to the OS a “new” installation?
The one feature that I’d pay for is wireless scanning, but people have reported serious problems with that. Also, it’s not clear to me if I have to use Fujitsu’s software in order to be able to scan wirelessly.
So, I’m still sitting on the fence. I hope this program by Fujitsu is a sign that they are realizing that they’ve made a bunch of mistakes recently.
