Fujitsu M3096E Scanner Review

 The Fujitsu M3096E scanner is an inexpensive, versatile flatbed scanner with sheet-fed capabilities. Its price and reliability could make it the perfect scanner for your small business!



  • 27.4 in. x 19.7 in. x 6.8 in.
  • 38.6 lbs.
  • It’s smaller than most flatbed scanners, and would probably fit in any small office without issue.

Scan Resolution:

  • 400 DPI.
  • Not amazing, but not awful, either.  Your text documents will look great, but if you have a lot of image scanning to do, you may want to look elsewhere.


  • 22 PPM.
  • That’s pretty slow. The median for scanners is in the upper 30’s, so the M3096E is definitely lacking in this area.


  • Minimum scan size of 6.8 in. x 8.3 in.
  • Maximum scan size of 11.7 in. x 17 in.
  • Flatbed scanner allows for 3D (and smaller paper) scanning capabilities.

Other Features:

  • Automatic document feeder with 50 sheet capacity.

Overall Rating: 8/10

The Fujitsu M3096E is a great scanner for many businesses. It’s lacking in a lot of areas, as I’m sure you noticed, so why did it get a whopping 8/10? Price. This scanner is incredibly inexpensive, coming in at around 1/3 of the price of many other flatbed scanners. Yes, it leaves much to be desired, but if you just need a versatile scanner with a decent scan resolution that’ll get the job done without breaking the bank, this scanner is perfect.

Obviously if your business needs a faster, higher resolution, more gadget-y scanner, then the M3096E is not for you. But, I know there are plenty of businesses that just need a reliable scanner for a good price, in which case this Fujitsu model could be perfect. If you’re looking to buy one, they’re sold on Ebay and ScannerParts.Biz!
