The software situation is a bit disconcerting for someone coming to the fi-8170 from the ScanSnap line. First, the super-familiar ScanSnap software is nowhere to be found. Instead, the fi-8170 comes with two products under the PaperStream brand.
Honestly, though, I don't think it's a great loss for Mac users. As useful as the ScanSnap software has been over the years, I've always found it to be a bit intrusive. And while you can't run PaperStream on a Mac, you can still use the fi-8170. It's just that Fujitsu doesn't go out of its way to tell users how to accomplish that -- but I will.
Only you know if you need a friendly little scanner or if you need a scanning monster. That's how you decide. As for a review score, we give it an 8.5 out of ten. The scanner itself is a very robust piece of machinery, but the software (and lack thereof for Mac and Linux) brings the score down into the mid-eights.
A document scanner is designed to quickly scan multi-page documents and turn them into searchable electronic documents. They typically feature reliable sheet feeders that can hold dozens of pages of paper, can scan both sides of a page at once, and come bundled with software that can save all of those pages in a searchable PDF.
Before diving into scanning all of those pages I spent some time experimenting with settings and working out what I wanted. I finally configured the bundled software to create multipage PDFs, perform OCR so the PDFs were searchable, and send them straight to Evernote. Scanning that way was fast and effortless and happened at the press of a button on the scanner.
But judging by some users comments, it seems setting up Wi-Fi is not as easy as with the iX1500. Some users found the software more difficult to set up than they expected, and those users come from both the Windows and Mac camps. But once the ScanSnap software is set up, the time taken from hitting the Scan button to getting a searchable, multipage PDF tends to be significantly faster than printers by other manufacturers.
