The Fujitsu fi-7160 Desktop Scanner was designed to support increasingly diverse business-related desktop scanning for individual knowledge workers or small workgroups. Simple, productivity-boosting operation virtually eliminates training requirements, both when using the scanner for regular document management routines as well as accomplishing individual ad hoc tasks.
This scanner comes with many new features and additions in the box like USB 3.0 support and adjustable, multi-line LCD. The PaperStream IP driver takes the work out of image cleanup when scanning invoices, ID cards, receipts, forms, or any other day to day paperwork. PaperStream IP automatically improves the image quality, removes unwanted backgrounds, and optimizes your scanned images for optical character recognition. Assisted Scan, another new feature of PaperStream IP, allows users to replace poor images by visually selecting the image they lack rather than learning driver settings.

Good product, room for improvement
By Brent B.
The FI-7160 is the third sheet-fed desktop document scanner I've owned since the mid-1990s. At work, I also have access to large, capable, and expensive business-oriented multi-function devices (think large copy machines that also do document scanning). In scanning functionality, the FI-7160 falls somewhere in the middle of these machines. After roughly a month using this device and scanning several thousand documents, I'm happy overall and I plan to keep it. However, I think Fujitsu and its competitors could improve these scanners by adding basic network capabilities.
The FI-7160 is quiet and fast, and the included software works well, except for the TWAIN integration with Adobe Acrobat 11. For some reason on my computer, scanning directly into Acrobat is slow, up to 30 seconds per page. ScanSnap, by contrast, scans fast, even at the highest DPI/color settings.
Scan quality compares well to the other devices I've used. In fact, I've not noticed much difference in scan quality from different document scanners over the years, cheap or expensive. For business scanning, manufacturers place legibility ahead of high DPI and small file sizes ahead of color rendition.
The sheet feeder is superior to the previous scanners I've owned, and nearly on par with the big machines I use. The FI-7160 falls short only its its ability to detect and stop scans where I've forgotten to remove staples and the like. I've had a few pages all but mangled when the scanner kept trying to pull the paper through. By contrast, its ability to detect two pages pulled through at once works well.
I don't have experience with other current machines in this price class, but I'm guessing most of them have similar features, speed, quality, size, etc. However, I wish this scanner had some basic network abilities. Such abilities would enable computer-free use, especially the ability to direct documents to shared drives on NAS devices or cloud servers. Also, it would help mitigate driver update issues; I've had to replace two previous scanners because their software wouldn't work on newer OSes. (Network scanners just keep going despite new OSes.) Ultimately, I'd like to see a small document scanner with a single button that scans documents directly to a shared drive or email, with management tasks controlled by a small onboard web server.

By FRANK KLINGER
Probably the best scanner you can buy but they are kind of pricy. The options offered by the software are really the time saver. I have people call me when they have a lot of documents they want to scan and send to someone. It only takes a few minutes and puts them all on one pdf file that is very small. Great product.

Impressive High Speed Scanner
By Flint Hydraulics
We had a 9 year old Ricoh flat bed scanner that was ready to retire. It cost us $2k when we purchased it new several years ago. The pages scanned per minute were not that great, the scanner was huge and it took up a lot of desktop space for our receptionist. After spending a few hours researching a new scanner that could scan a significant amount of pages per minute, we came across this little Fujitsu scanner.
When it arrived, we all were really impressed by how small it is (remember, our previous scanner was a monster). It resembles a large football when the input and output trays are folded. I was somewhat skeptical about it being able to scan 60 pages per minute. But after only a few minutes of setup, we were scanning.
This thing is really fast!
Everyone in the office is impressed by it and our receptionist is scanning thick document packets faster than she ever has.
Highly recommended if you're looking for a sub $1k high speed scanner
