Hello all.

Looking to pick up a scanner for my shiny new Mac. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this beast good or bad.

Thanks in advance.

I have the original ScanSnap 5500 for Mac. It's a desktop, not a portable, model. It's utterly fantastic: it will scan a stack of papers into PDF, very quickly and with great quality. The two-sided automatic scan capability is great for double-sided documents. It even does passable photo scans, if you want to put a snapshot on the Web.

In all, having had this scanner for a few years, I'm utterly delighted with it. I can't speak for the model you're looking at, but be assured, the concept is sound.

Ditto for me. For people that need to scan a lot of documents super fast, this is a must have! I've sold a few of them and no-one has been disappointed. I don't have experience with the 510 either but the S500 is awesome!
