[Micronet] document scanner with a good ADF.

Jonathan Felder-2
Does anyone know of a good scanner with automatic document feeder that
isn't terrible?  I want something where I can put 25-50 pages into it
and have it scan without stopping, jamming, skipping pages, etc.

Also we'd like it to be 3 seconds per letter size page or faster.

Thanks.

Hi Jon,

        What's your price range?  We've had excellent luck with Fujitsu scanners, but both of the ones we've bought have been in the $4000-$4500 range.  The first was a Fujitsu fi 5650C (now discontinued), and the second was a Fujitsu fi 6770 (http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/peripherals/scanners/production/fi-6770.html).  90 ppm, duplex, 24-bit color, and handles delicate papers as easily as sturdier papers.  We've scanned hundreds of thousands of images over the last 5 years with these two, and have been quite pleased.

Jon,

I concur with Michael on the Fujitsu scanners. We have lower end models (they ran $400-$500) and you can buy them at Amazon. We've also even bought new rollers etc. from Amazon when they started to jam so repair and replacement parts don't require a technician. Overall, they are WONDERFUL scanners that are easily maintained and I would highly recommend them without reservation from my experiences with them.

Jonathan Felder-2
Thanks.  $4000-$4500 is probably too high, but $500 sounds quite
reasonable.  I'll definitely check out the fujitsus.

We use the xerox documates. the 262 is about $1200 and not only does up
to 50 pages, it does duplex as well. We have a lower cost model that
also has a flatbed and an ADF

Re: [Micronet] document scanner with a good ADF.

In reply to this post by Jonathan Felder-2
Hi Jon,
We also use and recommend Fujitsu.
1. Fujitsu fi-6110 costs around $620.48 (Amazon.com). Speed: 20 ppm
(simplex) / 40 ipm (duplex) (ipm = images per minute ) scanning in
monochrome and color
2. Fujitsu fi-6130Z costs around $823.98 (Amazon.com). Speed: 40ppm / 80ipm
scanning in color, grayscale and monochrome; KofaxR VRSR Professional
Both come with a 50 page ADF and double feed detection.

The 6110 should be fine for attachments to BearBuy.

Other factors to consider:
- The 6130Z comes with Kofax VRS software that really cleans up your images.
This is very useful for OCR and barcode readers.
-  Consumables. The rollers need to be replaced every 200K sheets on the
6130Z. I can't find this info on the 6110 but for comparable older models
the roller needed replacement every 100K and the pad assembly every 50K.
This is easy to do and the parts are inexpensive; it's really a factor only
if users are technophobes and workstation support is stretched thin.
- The less expensive Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 ($414 on Amazon.com) uses a
ScanSnap specific driver but does not support Twain or ISIS drivers. This
may be a factor for certain applications but I'm not familiar with ScanSnap
specifications. Speed is 20 ppm. Consumables match the 6110.

Nick Phelps

Beth Muramoto
Nick,

Thanks for this! This is great information for future consideration. Alot of our scanners are aging and so replacements might be on the horizon so this info is wonderful!

Thanks for taking the time to be detailed.

Beth

Re: [Micronet] document scanner with a good ADF.

Jonathan Felder-2
In reply to this post by Jonathan Felder-2
Thanks everyone for all of the helpful responses.  Since a number of
people here seem to like the Fujitsu scanners, we've decided to go with
one of those.

This is the model we are considering:
http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/peripherals/scanners/workgroup/fi-5015c.html

It has both an ADF, it's a flat bed, and it's about $500.

Does anyone have any experience with or thoughts about this particular
model?

Thanks.

Re: [Micronet] document scanner with a good ADF.

Nicholas Phelps
Hi Jon,
I would highlight 3 items under the specifications:
1. Simplex (1 sided) scanning only. No duplex (2 sided) scanning.
2. It's a little slow at 15 ppm using monochrome & grayscale @ 200 DPI. It's
9 ppm @ 200 DPI in color.
3. It lists Kofax VRS as an option, so if you need this software it will
cost more.
Regards,
Nick
