I use this scanner as part of a work placement to convert large (thick, multiple paged documents) into digital files. The files can be up to individual 70 pages. For optimum efficiency, it would be necessary for the scanner to be able to scan all of these without the paper becoming jammed, not scanning the image straight due to movement of files or order becoming jumbled due to files becoming skewed on exit of scanner. Unfortunately, it seems the maximum number of pages that can be scanned whilst guaranteeing no problems with the process is 30 or so. In the great scheme of things, this is not particularly an issue - it just takes a little longer to scan documents than I would like. Any number of pages above this and the scanner can jam, although this easy to remedy by pulling on a tab which opens the scanner. Scanning can then be resumed.
Firstly, the scanner is easy to connect to a PC, easy to turn on and easy to scan. No manual set-up was required, just a pressing of the power button. Preparing the scanner is easy too; bringing down the 'flap' at the front for the scanned documents to exit into and extending the tray at the top of the scanner to help guide the documents in. There are also page width guides, which are adjustable. These also aid in guiding documents through the scanner straight.
The scanner is rather loud - it overshadows the sound of a television at an 'average' noise level and can be heard at the other end of my house if the door to the room I'm in is open. Just a touch quieter would be acceptable to my eyes.
Finally, the scanning quality is sufficient - words are legible, although they appear slightly blurred and some words which are hand-written may require straining to read.
Enhanced with innovative features, the Fujitsu fi-6130 scanner offers outstanding price/performance value in a compact footprint, conserving both space and budget. With duplex scanning performance of up to 80 images per minute in monochrome and grayscale, the fi-6130 also delivers uncompromised high-resolution performance of up to 60 images per minute in color at an astounding 300 dpi. Engineered with one of the most advanced paper separation features in their class, the fi-6130 is the first workgroup scanner equipped with reversing roller technology (statement true as of March 2008), resulting in exceptional feeding reliability for an even wider variety of document weights. Furthermore, the automatic document feeder (ADF), capable of scanning documents up to 10 feet long, is also robust enough to feed up to three hard cards continuously or an embossed card up to 1.4 mm in thickness. Additionally, the fi-6130 harmoniously combines the security of Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection with the efficiency of Intelligent MultiFeed Function (iMFF) so that intentional double-feeds, such as a taped receipt or sticky note, can be manually bypassed while double-feed detection is enabled.
