The Fujitsu ScanSnap S300M is the world’s smallest duplex ADF scanner, optimized for the Apple Macintosh system. It comes loaded with big features that make document management on the go as easy as touching a button.

Scan to PDF Instantly on Macs

The ScanSnap S300M also instantly converts scanned data into PDF files, so your images are digitally preserved.

Other features of the ScanSnap S300M include:

  • Intuitive drag-and-drop file management for fast e-mailing or printing;
  • Handy thumbnail viewer for previewing PDF and JPEG files;
  • Scanning speed of up to 8 double-sided pages or 16 images per minute;
  • Can run off USB port power when no AC is available;
  • Can scan business cards and comes bundled with Cardiris™ business card software.

Whatever documents you need to digitize—personal finance, student reports, or business correspondence—the ScanSnap S300M helps you do it quickly, with a duplex scanning system that captures both sides of the document simultaneously, and automatic image correction that ensures your images are readable. The S300M is a best-of-breed portable scanning solution for your Mac.

Easy One-Button Scanning with the ScanSnap S300M!

Just press the "SCAN" button and the ScanSnap S300M scanner quickly captures both sides of documents, presenting images as they are meant to be seen.

What’s more, the S300M offers a host of automatic image correction features to ensure great scanning results.

Simply load a stack of documents into the automatic document feeder and press the "SCAN" button. The ScanSnap S300M automatically recognizes the size of each document, detects and corrects for skew, and shows images in their proper orientation with blank pages removed, saving storage space in your computer’s memory

Powerful Document Management Performance in a Compact Package

At nearly half the size of other ScanSnap scanners, the S300M PDF scanner is the world’s smallest duplex ADF scanner designed to provide best-in-class mobile performance inside or outside of the home or office.*

*Statement was accurate for A4 ADF scanners as of October 2007

Double sided multi-sheet feeding

The ScanSnap S300M holds up to 10 letter sheets of paper in its automatic document feeder and scans up to an amazing 8 double-sided pages per minute.

Able to scan paper of different sizes in the same stack, the ScanSnap S300M can even feed legal-paper length documents at the touch of a button.

The S300M Runs on USB Power for Ultimate Mobile Versatility

For added mobile convenience, the ScanSnap S300M can be powered through the Mac’s USB port* when an AC power source is not available.

*When powered by USB only, the S300M scanner uses two Mac USB ports; one for power and the other for transferring data. The S300M comes with all required Mini-B type USB cables and an AC adapter.

Cardiris™ Business Card Software Turns the S300M Into A Business Card Scanner

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S300M scanner comes bundled with Cardiris business card OCR software to quickly scan and store business cards into the Mac. Information taken from the card can be edited and then exported to Address Book, Entourage, AppleWorks, vCard, and other contact management systems.
