Engadget Summary

A multifunction printer can take care of your basic scanning needs pretty handily, but if you're looking to organize your loose papers, you'll want something with a bit more speed and features, which is where the iX500 comes into the picture. PC Advisor was able to "comfortably churn through 32.6 pages per minute," while Wired found the speed at which it scanned pages "blazing." The image quality isn't quite up to par with flatbed scanners, but as PC Advisor points out, "that that isn't their priority, and the ix500 is as good as any sheetfed we've seen for colour." The priority is to get you organized, and the iX500 has plenty of features to make that happen, like the virtual ScanSnap folder, which Wired said to "file this under the I Never Knew I Needed This Feature But Now I Do category." It also has wireless connectivity and can scan to your phone, which Boing Boing found handy "if I need to scan something and run out the door with it on my mobile device." If you're looking to get your clutter under control, the ScanSnap is a Must-have device for your desk.
