Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500
Discover the smarter way to work, using the ScanSnap iX1500.
The iX1500’s 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen turns the old way of scanning on its head; instead of scanning a document and choosing what you want to do with it each time, now, after your first simple set-up, you can forget all about it. It also allows multiple users to each personalise the interface with their own set of large, colour-coded buttons for the functions they use the most.
The all-new ScanSnap Home software enables you to preview, tag, search and retrieve any document easily. ScanSnap Home also uses the text on your scans – such as the shop and company name – to recommend file names. It learns and adapts to how you work!
ScanSnap Cloud can send them straight to one of up to four different cloud storage locations and is smart enough to recognise which one depending on the document type; photos, receipts, business cards or documents. That means instant sharing with colleagues, friends and family.
The reliability of its market leading feed technology and handy receipt guide means the iX1500 makes light work of both large and small items – from A3 documents down to ID cards or receipts.
Boot up and be ready to go straight away thanks to the iX1500’s fast start-up – with the touch of just one button, you’ll be scanning within seconds.
Just open the cover and the ScanSnap iX1500 is ready to go.
And with a speed of 30 double-sided sheets per minute, you’ll be done in no time at all – that means more time to get on with what really matters.
You can share the device out of the box with up to 4 family members or colleagues; even more with additional licences.
Connect the iX1500 directly and instantly to your computer or smart device at home or in your office: from a computer you can utilise either USB, Wi-Fi with access point connect mode, or WiFi direct connect mode. From a smart device you can use either of the two WiFi mode options.

Very easy to use and great quality of scanning is excellent.
Matthew Portess, Appleleaf Accountancy and Tax Limited
Scanner is quick and very quiet. We are only a small office but it deal with a large back log very easily.It does double sided scanning too so saves time that way too.
The scanner itself is nice and compact so can be easily moved from desk to desk and set up on a pc is simple.
Overall very pleased with purchase and Tradescanners service very efficient.
Neil Reynolds, Reynolds
Very early days and although so far happy with its ease of use, saving documents is slightly more long winded than with the previous model. Looks good and nice and compact though.

Great Product.Very smooth and easyish to use!
Ilan Eardley, Wessex Financial Planning
Great product, does exactly what it says & highly reliable from a brand such as Fujitsu. We have 3 of these scanners & they are quite simply wonderful.
Colin McFarlane, Cheftec Limited
Just like to say I purchased this product about a month ago, and cannot praise this product enough, I have been using this on a daily basis and finding it very easy to use and set up.
I would recommend this product to any out there wishing to purchase a scanner
Barry Gould, BMG Accountancy Services Ltd
More difficult to set up than the previous ScanSnap 500 I was used to. I'm sure once I get my head round it I'll be fine. Would have liked to create the document title before it is sent to Evernote - my chosen cloud storage. Good resolution and fast scanning.
Keith Senior, Jacobs Allen Ltd
Had several of these & the predecessor & they remain in my opinion one of the best scanners for the money. Very easy to set up & operate & foe someone not blessed with IT skills that is worth every penny. Highly recommend.
Ian Williamson, St James Place
A very good machine, easy to use for home and office working.
Charles Goddard, PAN Trustees UK LLP
Fantastic product. Fast, efficient, easy to use, compact. V happy with my purchase. When buying it seemed expensive, but it is so good that I now consider it is a reasonable price for an excellent product.
I am delighted with the scanner and added functionality from the one i purchased several years ago.
Adrian Beattie, Bally Properties Limited
Great place to buy from... Next day secure delivery and excellent service!! Many Thanks
Mohamed Aslam, AUTOTREND
excellent scanner. this is my second purchase. when we had a minor problem with the first scanner Tradescanners were excellent support.
harry jeffs, jeffs& Co
Love this scanner so much, works like a dream. Been using for a few months with no problems, has made my life a lot easier.
Kate Hutchins, Octopus Books
This is a GREAT scanner. Big enough that you can load 20 sheets in the feeder and just hit scan, small enough to be cost effective, and scans both sides of the paper in 1 pass. Set it up right and it will scan and create a searchable PDF by default.
Also copes with till receipts and even business cards.
Stephen Barrett, RC Barrett and Co Ltd
absolutely brilliant. I used one of these at my place of work and then bought one for home. It is quick and easy to use, scans both sides of all pages and gives an option of destinations for the scanned paperwork. Regular updates keep it in top form. Neat and attractive piece of office euipment.
Liz Murphy, private
I had a Fujitsu scanner many years ago and really appreciated it. Having recently researched what duplex scanning equipment there was on the market, for me to digitalise box & lever arch file content, I couldn't find a product that inspired me with as much confidence as the iX1500. It really does perform brilliantly: I'm very pleased indeed with it.
We scan our purchase invoices in directly to Receipt Bank, and Xero Accounts system does the rest. takes 2 or 3 seconds per invoice
Graham Buckley, Nemo Autos Ltd
So fast so easy to use expensive but worth every penny
Tony Beardsley, Glynllifon Services
Great product. Easy to use with PC mac or iPhone.
Andrew H, Tandy Inc Ltd T/A A J Hales Pharmacy
The hardware is well-engineered and performs reliably and consistently whether it's the occasional scan or working continuously for hours and hours. Scanning both sides of a document at the same time and at high resolution provides excellent speed and handling of receipts and other unusual formats work very well. I gladly lost numerous file cabinets by being able to scan and store documents digitally and consider the ScanSnap an essential home office accessory like my keyboard, mouse, or big screen. On the software side, there is room to improve. For example, there is an issue with recognizing different international date formats, that often either get misinterpreted, or other items on the document are misinterpreted as dates, i.e. banking numbers, and the manual override to correct it is tedious and wastes a lot of time - hopefully, this will get fixed soon. With a little bit of AI, the software should be able to learn from corrections and perform date recognition as expected, and current configuration complexity could be greatly reduced. On the plus side, being able to scan to different locations including to my iPhone make it very flexible and accomodating.
In summary, the iX1500 packs a lot of punch with a tiny footprint and always ready and I wouldn't want to work without it. Also, I think it's excellent value for money and the optional support by Tradescannersis well worth it.
Extremly satisfied with ScanSnap iX1500 & its functionality
Alistair , NRGies Ltd
This was my second Scansnap scanner first one still working well after 15 year. We purchased a second for a separate location and that works very well. We now have a third one in place. A very useful and efficient piece of equipment. Happy to recommend.
sian nelson, Aubyns Holdings Ltd
It's brilliant !!
We have about 5 of them
Neil Crowther, Worsdell & Vintner
Great scanner. Really smooth sheet feeder mechanism. Will allow you to add several scans into one. PDF software is included.
Vijay Bhuchar, Self Employed
One of the best scanner in my experience
Imran siddique , Sterling pharma ltd
This scanner has exceeded all our expectations.
We have tried four other scanners in the past but they have all failed after a few weeks to auto feed small receipts which as accountants is an extremely important function to us allowing us to scan "shoebox" clients record and upload them to Dext (Receiptbank) which saves us hours and hours of manual data input.
Brilliant at all scanning but really great at small receipts
Brian Alexander, TaxAssist Accountants - Stevenage
We scan around 1000 pages per month.
Once destination folders and shortcuts are programmed the ScanSnap iX1500 is a simple and competent scanner, easy to correct any misfeeds and works well with frequent software updates.
Phil Bassinder , Cornish Industrial Supplies Ltd
Love it, its scans faster than I can keep up with. High accuracy in the feed so all of my documents are straight. I just need to work out how to flip the document order so the last document is the first one in the file.
This has helped me so much in working towards a paperless office.
Lucy Tebbutt, Advanced Accounting Solutions Ltd
Fantastic scanner, great functionality and does exactly what it says with ease.
Have purchased from the supplier on a couple of occasions now and will always be my first point of contact in the future. Excellent customer service and hassle free purchasing, thank you.
Peter Richards, J and Young (Leicester) Limited
The second scanner iX1500 that I have purchased is a sleeker version of the earlier model even though both are still excellent scanners. They handle the quantity of scanning and produce quality of scans coupled with ease of filing. Scanning bank statements to excel/csv files is also a good add-on. Altogether a great time saving product.
harry jeffs, AIMS Accountants
A particularly useful scanner, with a small footprint, big features and amazingly easy to set up!
I really like the fact that you can categorise, for example HealthCare, Inspection Handouts, invoices / receipts, Letters. You can also create tags, to easily search for an item. I use it for both business and personal and the Fujitsu Scan Snap iX1500 is helping my home office go paperless. Simply put, it works!
Ron Hewey, Anglian Inspections Ltd
This is my third Scansnap . I use previous models S1500 and IX500 (still working well after many years service).
This version has the touchscreen and it is a nice addition to the overall features. All Scansnap scanners are great, robust and they just keep on improving.
Ideal for scanning large amounts of double sided documents. The scans are excellent quality and much quicker than our photocopier sheet feeder option. No paper jams and some nice software to edit pdf etc.
Paul Morris, JM Wealth
it is an incredible product. it has changed the way we work in the business as it has changed the time we spend scanning and has enabled us to complete tasks much quicker.
Would Highly recommend.
Mark Thomson, Thomson Financial Consultancy
I bought 3 of these for the staff working from home she lockdown began. An excellent piece of kit which I highly recommend
The scansnap has made our lives so much easier and efficient. We are now a paperless office which is also better for the environment.
Ian Bennett , Inside Information Limited
Our company have been using the FUJITSU SCANSNAP IX1500 for over 15 years and have found this product to be efficient, invaluable and extremely durable.
Belinda McCaffrey, Richards Solicitors
What a wonderful, compact hard working machine this is! We had over ten years of paperwork occupying valuable office space and decided to spend the summer scanning to our network.
The ScanSnap made quick work of it. The ability to load 50 pages and scan both sides is marvellous. An added bonus is that it folds up when not in use and can be tucked away in the corner of the desk. Definitely recommend!
Mark Boorsma, Grommets Ltd
This scanner is fantastic! I had the 500 and now the 1500. Quick scanning, no fuss, and it just keeps going. Many different options but I usually just scan to a folder from where I then sort the files. Handles lots of different types and sizes of paper very well. Even business cards and plastic membership cards are no match for this scannner. Highly recommended!
Ola Holmstrom, Self
I love my scanner and I recommend it to all my colleagues. It’s simple to use, very speedy and saves me so much time when dealing with client paperwork. The fact that it can quickly deal with till receipts too is fabulous.
Louise Parker, Parker Business Support
This scanner has made my life infinitely easier, I love it. I can scan all my clients invoices and bank statements very quickly. It has never jammed on me and so far I not a single problem. Set up was quick and easy - I used the remote set up that you offer - and they set up all the profiles that I needed to scan everything to where I wanted it to go. It saves me hours and it is my favourite bit of kit. Well worth the money. I have recommended to several people already.
Kate Hutchins, Octopus Books
We purchased our Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 two and a half years ago and it is still working well. We use it to scan in our post and archive old working papers and it has sped up this process immensely. It is fast, very quiet and the ability to scan double sided paperwork is a real plus. It is easy to use and the management system for saving the scanned documents works well. Overall a good value purchase.
Neil Reynolds , Reynolds
The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 scanner is probably one of the best investments I have made in IT equipment.
It is reliable, easy to use and its small footprint means that it is not intrusive on my desk.
It is a superb piece of ‘kit’
Well done to Fujitsu for producing such a superb machine.
Vernon Watson, QMS
Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 is small so easily fits on your desk. It is easy to feed documents with and you can scan individual pages and batches in. You have a choice of scanning to file and to email, to Word, Excel and PDF. Perfect for scanning supplier invoices! We could not do without it in Finance at our multi academy trust.
Katrina Assitzoglou, Osborne Co-Operative Academy Trust
I purchased the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 scanner a couple of years ago and I could not function my business without it as it is reliable fast and a perfect tool for transmitting PDF documents. It’s not like any other scanner, this is the best of the crop and I strongly recommend its use and its subsequent purchase. I rate it 10 ?
Simon Phillpotts, The Guru Bookshop
A fantastic scanner that makes our job so much easier. I've just ordered 2 more. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Aidan McCarron, Autotech Slough Ltd
This is a great product that is used widely around the company. It is very efficient and easy to use.
Ella Joy, Fleet Street Clinic
Best Document Scanner on the market. Very easy to use and gives crystal clear sharp scans. It also scans direct to Devonthink if your using with a MAC so file management within your databases is very easy and always organised, so finding that vital document is very easy to do. Buy this scanner and you will not be disappointed.
Bought this scanner to replace an earlier model (S1500) which had provided sound service for several years but was showing its age. Because it had been so good, I had hoped simply to buy another example of the same model, but found it was now discontinued. I was a little apprehensive of buying the updated version as so often product quality seems to fall during such updates but I need not have been concerned. the iX1500 is an excellent and reliable scanner which rarely mis-feeds and can be relied upon to take whatever I throw at it and produce fine scans.
Gary, Vivia Associates Ltd.
As an accountancy firm, this is an excellent piece of kit that helps our practice to become more digital and become more effiecient. Highly recommended.
Nimesh Mepani, Finsol Tax Advisors Limited
We purchased a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 scanner for my home office whilst working from home during the pandemic.
I have found this scanner a fantastic useful piece of kit that is so easy to set up and use. It has helped our company go digital in our accounts, especially helpful since everyone was working remotely but still need to view purchase invoices etc.
I would recommend this scanner 110%!
Leonie Johnstone, Red Sky Property Ltd
We have a number of these machines which are compact & reliable. Fujitsu make solid easier to use machines & these are no exception being easy to set up & a doodle to use. Highly recommended for the small office.
Ian Williamson, Williamson Wealth Management
I am never keen to write a review until I have used a product for some time. After a year's use I can say that the ScanSnap iX1500 is easy to use and was a very good buy for the moderate volume of scanning that it has had to do. It was necessary subsequently to buy cover sheets for the copying of some original documents and it would be good if a pack,
or just one of these sheets could be bundled in with the initial purchase.
