Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i review

Fujitsu's ScanSnap S1300i is compact, able to scan up to 12 pages per minute and interact with cloud services.

Price
£211

The revamped portable scanner brings a number of improvements from the previous edition including an increase in speed. The device is now able to scan 12 pages per minute (ppm), up from 8 ppm.

Less portable than the entry-level, lightweight ScanSnap S1100, the S1300i includes a 10-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) which latches shut to form an effective lid when not in use.

On the desk it has half the footprint of a netbook, although this increases whilst scanning with the ADF open. Like its competitors, the S1300i has no output tray to collect scanned pages, and it comes with no case to protect it in transit. It's can be powered using two USB connections to connect it to a host computer or from a tiny AC adaptor: using this the maximum power consumption we measured was just five watts. Power use was unmeasurable (less than one watt) with the scanner off.
