Sure it works with Mac, but it doesn't have that streamlined Mac look to it. It isn't Mac-aesthetic compatible.

Reviews on Amazon



The overwhelming amount of 1 star reviews on Amazon and horror stories of losing documents forever due to software issues makes me extremely wary of this product.

It may be useful for organizing and sorting documents so they are more easily searchable/accessible, but I certainly wouldn't dispose of any scanned hard copies

I was skeptical, however this worked suprisingly well when I sampled it. Picked up hand written figures too. A sure time saver for businesses.

Do you mean the WOPR?

That's a good point, there's a whole range of computers from cinema that we need to know about. Can HAL work with this?

Hey, what happened to Monty and Mortimer on tonight's Woot daily digest?

Don't tell me they've been fired?!?!

I've been secretly addicted to them: NOW WHAT AM I GONNA READ EVERY NIGHT BEFORE I GO TO BED!!!

Oh great, now I'm NOT gonna be able to sleep tonight, with no Monty and Mortimer bedtime story for me!!!

So according to the reviews all neat desk products are criticality crippled by the worthless propriety software required to use them. Universally, users have abandoned decent hardware due to terrible software. Sounds like short sighted biz guys have ruined yet another potentially good product.

I have the portable version and have used it on a Netbook. It works remarkably well. Highly recommended. The software does a good job at figuring out those receipts. Just don't try to scan receipts you left in your pocket when you washed your jeans. Not even a miracle will save you on that.

Stinkers probably went out to a late movie. I'll tell the boss to talk to them.

I'm not near my portable scanner, but I thought you could scan them into pdf format and save the scans outside of the program in addition to the usual program backup. I'll have to check when I get the chance (if I get the chance), but others can chime in.

Most companies now days outsource or hire inferior programmers who live 10 in an apartment to design and develop their software. The end result most of the time is a product that falls way short of its potential and is often a complete disaster. When are companies going to wake up and start employing Americans who are much more capable of creating a product that does what is designed to do???? I don't know about the business practices of Neat Receipts specifically, but if the shoe fits...

Got this last time and I love it. I've had zero problems with it and I use it regularly. It can scan multiple documents quickly and they come out clear. My best tip is to send your cards through such as drivers license, insurance cards, credit cards- anything you have in your wallet as a quick resource if you were to lose them. The only problem I have is I still have a hard time pitching original paper copies of many documents and receipts but I'm a "just in case" kind of person. Give this a try!

How does this one compare to Fujitsu ScanSnap machines?

Thanks ThunderThighs, but I've found them both just now in the "breakroom"... They were just on their break! (Everyone, go see their breakroom video!) So no need to report them to the boss, I wouldn't want them pink slipped! As I said earlier, I'm addicted to them... I just may be their #1 fan!!! ...

You are right on in your comments above. Bought the Woot offered portable one a few years back. It has Neatworks 4.X with it. Worked okay but I felt it wasn't ready for primetime so I shelved it. Two years later I'm buying the desk version on Woot, again. Software 4.X worked okay, but again, not ready for primetime. So I shelved it last year until their version 5.X came out at the end of last year. Piece of garbage software. Hardware is very nice, but the software is totally and absolutely garbage. Went out and bought an Epson high end scanner and will be implementing it for our applications. Meanwhile, I'm waiting for Neat programmers to get their act together to debug their program. You might wonder, "What Pinky is this who has about $1,000 tied up in three scanners, two of which he isn't using?" Well, I implement computer software and hardware sloooooowly. No need to rush into things to find out 2,000 hours spent earlier won't get me to the 2,001st hour of use. The Epson scanner works real nicely and I can use it immediately. I'm not going to lay out the time to use the Neat products and be an unpaid beta tester. I figure Neat has enough ticked customers they better get their act together fast.

No comparison. The Fujitsu wins hands down, or in this case, rollers down.

Would have bought the Fujitsu instead of what I did buy, the Epson, but for one major problem. Fujitsu scanner doesn't hook directly with other scan software, i.e. Omni something or other, whereas the Epson can. Fujitsu has their own proprietary software too. Epson is bundled with
Paperport, which BTW also works with the Brother MFC copier/scanners.

Hey, I've been around looking at scanners since Wang Labs and Lanier started their failed implmentations over 40 years ago.

I would love to have a product like this that scans the raw data to internal memory (sd card, flash drive, etc.) which can later be processed. This approach would not require that the scanner be connected to a computer at the time when documents are scanned. Someone is not doing their job, but what's new?

And this scanner is screaming to be wireless.

Just another example of the result of companies deciding to outsource/insource crappy programmers. So sad to see how we all pay the price, literally, and end up with crap we can't use. And can you name anything we buy today that has absolutely no warranties and waives all liabilities???? Software end user license agreements state that there is no guarantee that the software will work and has no liability for damage. No wonder third world countries flock to the software industry in mass numbers to develop and sell products that have no guarantee to work and could even destroy your data. What a gig. Is there any other industry that gets away with this????

Thanks for the heads up. I've been looking at the Scansnap for a long time, but it's too expensive. The poor reviews on this scanner have helped me decide.

While we're asking what it's compatible with, I'll gladly help.

Deep Thought
Absolutely, mice need to stay organized with their existence across multiple dimensions and all.

Earth
Absolutely but you'll have difficulty retrieving your data and it is rather prone to being destroyed by alien races who do not appreciate the significance and feel that it's in the way of their highway and/or view of other portions of the solar system.

Oversoul
Why would it need a scanner? It can talk to people directly and generally it was intended to transmit rather than receive.
