"Easy to use; but unreliable"

January 23, 2010  |  By chaismx

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 1.2

Pros

It did a good job compressing multi-page scanned documents into a small PDF file.

Cons

I got strange, unexplained error messages a few times and ended up having to rescan the document. Quite frustrating.

Summary

Overall it does the job, but I would prefer something with a few more options that could work reliably without crashing.

"Disappointed"

October 04, 2009  |  By rtstevens4647

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 1.2

Pros

It did run the scanner and created pdfs.

Cons

First it gave me only B/W or color. I use Greyscale. Next, for documents that may be hundreds of pages long, I scan in mulitple sessions. It wouldn't let me merge with existing pdfs.

Summary

I need something that will allow me to scan in greyscale and merge scannings into one document.

"It works!!!"

September 07, 2009

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 1.2

Pros

It does what it claims to do. Very good compression. 122 page doc scanned in at 400x400 resolution and the file is only a little over 10MB.

Cons

Zero, zilch, nada.

Summary

I am working on my first court case and I have a ton of documentation to send to my law firm. Rather than fax page-by-page I just scan all the docs in a batch at a time and email or post for download the pdf files I created with Softi. It works great with Windows XP! I tested other software and the only one that worked as well was scantopdf but it put a watermark on it's trial version and they want $90 for their "pro" multi-page scan version. Softi Scan to PDF is $25 and support as many pages as you can fit into you sheet fed scanner.

"Poor quality scan and did not eliminate steps"

March 27, 2009  |  By jacobposey

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 1.2

Pros

Simple clean, easy to use interface.

Cons

The scan completed by this software illegible. I could easily read the HP software scan that I did for comparison. Also, this does not allow you to save your settings as defaults which added another layer of interaction that I was looking to remove.

Summary

I want to be able to scan paper and save it as a PDF. I was looking for an icon, that upon clicking, would scan the document with some preset configurations and show me the save dialog box. This was not what I'm looking for.

"scanning nirvana!"

October 29, 2008  |  By charlienyc1

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 1.2

Pros

it works(!), doesn't hog system resources, no limitations during evaluation, simple interface, allows multiple page scans
"show scanner dialog" checkbox allows you to skip your scanner's software when you don't need it - saves time and annoyance!

Cons

very minor: missing a couple of windows-standard elements, like quick keys (i'd like to see one for the scan button) and minimize

Summary

my expectations are a bit low with free and free-for-now software, but this trumps them. it has no limitations, a simple interface and it's rock-solid. that's all i care about in a utility.

i'll probably buy it when the evaluation is up. that rarely happens. after 2 days of use i was motivated to come back here and post a review!

"As simple and functional as advertised"

October 21, 2008  |  By HDOtter

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 1.2

Pros

Easy to install
Works with all Twain scanners
Does exactly what it says it does
Get's out of the way when done

Cons

None so far

Summary

I needed a simple, small Scan to PDF function without loading the full Acrobat products or other graphics tools. This little gem does exactly that and, using the Twain interface for my little scanner, I get full control of the scan types, size and features. Brilliant.

"Needs a couple of enhancements..."

October 09, 2008  |  By hootie20

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 1.2

Pros

Quick and easy to install.
Works well with Vista.
Quick to launch.
Simple interface.

Cons

No 'Minimise' button.
Unable to save own default settings once set.
Can't open/view thumbnail PDF images once scanned prior to saving.

Summary

Quick to set up and works well with Vista, does exactly what I'm looking for which is to quickly scan paperwork into PDF format. I used to use PhotoShop to do this but it takes forever to load and is process/RAM greedy, which Softi Scan is not.

"Incredibly easy"

September 18, 2008  |  By r2larson

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 1.2

Pros

Up and running in 10 minutes, so obvious, no help file is needed. Works every time. Scan from bed or feeder.

Cons

Interface is a little too simple/basic.

Summary

Take advantage of the free trial.

Updated on Oct 16, 2009

This rocks. I paid for the full SoftiScan Wiz and have never regretted it. Quality of scan is great and it is almost embarrasingly easy.
