Fujitsu ScanSnap IX1600 Review Banner

The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1600 Review. A great USB and Wireless desktop scanner with automatic double-sided scanning capabilities and a “One Touch” system. But is it a better purchase than the ScanSnap iX1400 and iX1500?

From now until the 30th of September 2021, the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1600 comes with a free one-year subscription to Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1600 is a great office scanner. Currently sitting atop the ScanSnap range due to some great features such as the Touchscreen, high speeds and wireless connectivity. However, the high price for these features may put some off, when the iX1500 is also available.

Part Of The ScanSnap Range

The ScanSnap range is ever-growing. Not only is there the fantastic ScanSnap iX1600 here. The iX1500 and iX1400 take a step down in terms of features to make even more affordable but still fantastic scanners. There’s even the battery-powered ScanSnap iX100 for scanning on the go.

Or, for a great Overhead book scanner, the ScanSnap SV600 is a fantastic option for delicate and thick media.

ScanSnap IX1600 Verdict

The IX1600 is a premium small office scanner. Thanks to the wireless capabilities and the option to scan from other locations, a mobile, even for Scan-To-Cloud for use with Dropbox, Google Cloud etc. The inclusion of user-profiles to save settings for up to four people, and the automatic document detection make using this simple, easy and quick.

The Fujitsu ScanSnap IX1600 is one of our highest rated scanners, worthy of the 5-star rating and is even more of a brilliant bargain with the 1 year trial of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC
