The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 is a bit over four years old, which means people are starting to wonder if they should still buy one. My answer is yes, although it’s likely Fujitsu will update the iX500 soon.1
Since the iX500 was released, Fujitsu added wireless scanning, then ScanSnap Cloud, and I have updated this review for 2017, including information about the various ways you can scan with those options.
The bottom line: the ScanSnap iX500 has gotten better over time, and it remains an excellent value. If you need a document scanner, this is still the one you should get, and it remains at the top of our top picks for scanners.
