    I wonder if anyone has any thoughts. I need to scan in a mix of papers, letters, etc. My budget can stretch to around £400.

    It seems to come down to
    Kodak i1150 A4 Colour Document Scanner
    OR
    Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500

    Both get good reviews. The Kodak is newer, but there is less information out there.

    Anyone have experience of one or both? Many thanks.

    I am using a 2013 Macbook Air 1.3 GHz Intel Core i5

    I have the older ScanSnap 1500m and it has been great. Handles all my documents and even did a good job scanning in some old snapshots. It almost never jams or misfeeds and when it does it's usually my fault.

    Can't say anything about the Kodak.

    Thanks and update

    Thanks for the comment (that is reassuring).

    Further searching suggests the Kodak is Windows only, so that solves that.

    I use the portable, middle sized, UBS powered/power supply option Fujitsu SnapScan s1300i, I love that thing. The Fujitsu Snapscans are awesome. Pick from the range, depending on your needs.

    I went paperless in my life, shredded about 15 bags of paper from my office with it.

    been looking at the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500, too

    my problem is though that i am looking for a hi-res scanner (not just mere 600dpi) that also sports a auto doc feeder... any ideas?

    My old Canon CanoScan 4000 does the wonderful job. I used it with my Windows PC. I trust Canon anyway. :apple:
