Ordered ix500's for my office, EN Edition for me
Impressed by the scanning ability when finally working
Depressed by the installation headaches of the ix500 (I had set the first one up on my mac to play with it then switched to a PC terminal)
1. Install ScanSnap Manager (no wifi functionality to computer)
2. Install Online Updater (must install to get wifi function to computer)
3. Must then right click to run updates to get wifi function to computer
** There is a firmware update in the above processes too **
Navigating to their driver page is a little confusing and for the normal user could see this being a complete headache to the point of just giving up.
It took me 2 hours to solve the issue that seems to be the issue of me leaving it plugged in during one of the installation stages that completely screwed me up. Led to using some removal feature on the DVD and reinstalling and restarting computer twice. I was just going to be testing the scanner on the pc and then taking it back home with me to scan some stuff. Once it finally got working on the PC... I left it there... not chancing another PITA
Evernote edition for me
As I understand it the only functionality that is missing is the scan to mobile which would be finicky anyways as the ScanSnap APP for iOS is horrible. I am assuming EN Edition will be a happier and more streamlined install that out of box and 1 install will give the functionalities that scansnap offers (scan to dropbox folder, etc + better evernote scanning options )
The current thing I am annoyed about the EN edition / EN Market is the SLOW shipping times and not many order updates. Seems like EN should just pay for Amazon Fulfillment and be done with it? This is the world we've come to expect to have packages within 2 days. Feels like the early 1990's when you would collect 6 cereal box tops for a toy and wait 6-8 weeks to the point of insanity checking the mailbox everyday.
Also I noticed the EN edition webpages states 600 dpi lower resolution scans vs ix500? is this adjustable to match ix500 resolutions ~1200??
