Tried a lot of scanning software and this is the best of the bunch. VueScan ( $40 ) with it's twice weekly updates is OK and a third of the price of ExactScan, not really a bargain but still a lot less than the amazingly exorbitant price of $115 that ExactScan are asking. My question would be why is this software so damn expensive ? If developers want an easy app to throw together, scanner software seems to be at the very bottom of the pile. ExactScan works and works well. If it were $10-15 it would be a killer application that every Mac user with a scanner would own. Yet the developers want it to remain a niche tool, and that is a great pity.

Used all mac and Fujitsu scanners, 1300i, s1500m, now ix1500. The later because mac is going all 64 bit SOON. Fujitsu in the meantime is dropping support for newer operating systems in the 64 bit world, i.e. ALL older fujitsu scanners sans ix1500 will be useless in a 64 bit world, plus fujitsu barely supports the older scanners. What to do,? the ix1500comes with scansnap software to use generally for all types of scanning. Nonetheless, I'm using the ix1500 with scansnap Home. I needs to be noted I also use Hazel, it reads, ocr'd docs then imposes rules on them making changes and putting them where they belong As time moves on I'm without software for a perfectly good s1500m and a new ix1500 that NOW comes in second place for ocring documents that hazel doesn't like to read for some reason, and they don't care. In comes Exactscan Pro. OCR three times faster, easy to run, operate, i.e. infallible AND it runs the on 64 bit and works with my old s1500m. Yes, the ix1500 was a waste of money, all I needed was Exactscan Pro to run my s1500m and I would be very happy. Yes, with price conversion (to Euro) it's a little over $100. But what a piece of engineering, simple, and like a Mac, Just Works. The ix1500 works the same as before, but the presets are in Exactscan Pro. This software has saved me so many hassles I would have paid more. When Mac Fujitsu Scanner users find out how well this software works with the ix1500 and works in the 64 bit world to reenergize the Fujitsu unsupported Fujitsu Mac scanners, they'll drop the Fujitsu software and buy the Exactscan Pro company.

Having bought this over MacAppStore with a used DR-2580C (€99) this is a marvellous bundle. I scan about 5000 pages a month, super fast super reliable, not needing windows in a virtual machine. Pages are straight, right contrast, pdfs are OCRed, no waiting time. 20 double pages a minute are not a problem. Special buttons on the scanner are supported so I can control the settings of the software directly on the scanner. Wished the online software would acknowledge the AppStore License like other manufacturers do, so when software is released on their website before the appstore version is updated, can be used immediately.

This is a fantastic scanning app. It does all the things that fujitsu scansnap software does. Auto rotate, descew. It OCRs way faster. But the big deal is it can use super fast mega scanners. I've been looking for something liek this for a long time.

This scanner driver is simply the best available for scanning office documents. This scanner driver is simply faster than even native Mac scanner drivers provided by the scanner manufacturers. For example, it is TWICE AS FAST AS THE NATIVE the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M's driver when scanning at 300 DPI in greyscale WITH OCR! Without OCR it is faster. The Brother ImageCenter ADS-2000 scanner does 7 pages per minute at 300 DPI. It is a dog of a scanner. But the ExactScan Pro squeezes 10 pages per minute at 300 DPI for this scanner. It allows you to run numerous previously incompatible PC-only scanners. For example, it allows you to use the Canon DR 2850c scanner at full speed of 300 DPI Grayscale at 20 single-sided pages per minute with OCR. . In fact, since the Canon DR-2850c is available for $90 on eBay, you can have huge savings on the hardware cost of scanners by simply using the ExactScan Pro driver. Why buy a new $500 scanner when a $90 will be nearly as fast? Or use the driver on a $500 used scanner (that formerly sold for $2000) that blows away what you can get new for $500. This scanner driver makes many used scanners fantastic performers. What I like is that the developer continues to improve compatibility with more and more scanners. For Office Documents (not art scans), this scanner driver easily pays for itself and is faster than any other existing scanner driver on the same hardware. it blows away VueScan, SilverFast, ABBY FineReader, and drivers from the manufacturers themselves. It is particularly a bargain when you buy it in the Apple Store since you can use it on all of your Macs. Very Highly recommended.

Responding to CE3's comment from Nov. 17, 2015: Why would you *not* believe it was a real review? Just because it was positive? You've never found a piece of software that you thought was great? You must not have bothered to look at Psychiatry's profile to see the other reviews posted, or Psychiatry's positive score (+180 currently). Those are things you don't see with bogus reviewers here on MU.

Because it is a real review.

My only knock on Exactscan Pro is that they don't list scanners they are not compatible with nor scanners they have not tested. I wish they did. It would make purchasing scanners for Exactscan much easier. They only list scanners they have tested on their site. This is fine but I'd like to know if they will add new scanners in the future.

What I love about it most:
1. Exactscan is spectacular with the scanners it works with. It is much faster than the manufacturer's drivers or software.
2. Exactscan allows you to use scanners which have no native Mac driver. This includes older scanners from Canon and others which were built for Windows only.

Listed as supported, but crashes on every single scan. This began since I upgraded to OS X 10.11.2 (and apparently wasted $79.99 on a new license for exactscan). 100% of the time, "An unexpected error condition occurred."

That's a bad marketing strategy. Give us a outdated buggy demo to try out or make us pay Mac App Store to find out our hardware is not totally supported. And when we demand a refund Apple stalls until we die from old age.

??? It is the same version as in the App Store (2.59). The classic licenses also support older Mac versions and PowerPC and also receive more and timely updates (App Store reviews from Apple take a week or two).

Additional this classic licenses even work for our new Windows port that is in Beta testing: http://exactscan.com/universal/

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M should work: http://exactscan.com/compatiblescanner.shtml

You have to quit the Fujitsu ScanSnap manager to use ExactScan thought. The Fujitsu software grabs exclusive control over the scanner and does not provide a driver for third-party access.

ExactScan brings it's own 400 drivers to access scanners like this natively by itself.

I recommend using the demo version to test with your scanner. I did that with my Epson Artisan 800 and it works well. Adobe Acrobat doesn't see my scanner!

ExactScan supports both TWAIN and ImageCapture. drivers. So as long as your scanner comes with a functional (not outdated, or buggy, crashing etc.) TWAIN or ImageCapture driver from Epson it should work with ExactScan, too.
