Summary: Great product if you need mobility. Otherwise, I would suggest sticking to a flatbed scanner or a multifunction.
Pros: Compact, USB powered.
Cons: Slow (expected) and not suitable for all media (expected). The bundled software puts itself into the Startup menu every time you run the software, which is annoying. Very few people need loading scanning software at startup.
Summary: I've used this scanner to scan documents for work, as well as pictures and drawings. I thought it worked fine for scanning documents into Adobe Pro. I didn't have any problems running OCR after scanning my paperwork. For images and drawings, I am unimpressed.
Summary: has a mechanical switch that registers as no paper in scanner if receipt is bowed up at all. entrance chute wont take the receipt if its wrinkled at all. works fine on letter paper. if you dont want it for receipts, great product.
Summary: There are a few things I like about this scanner: It can save multiple pages into a single document. I can select from some presets documents sizes, and color/gray-scale/b&w before I scan. It scans up to legal size paper. It will also allow me to set the size of paper to be scanned manually.
Not a bad scanner overall, but a few very frustrating quirks

Summary: The scanner was easy to install and seems to work well enough. I use it heavily for all of my receipts and recently went through my file cabinet and scanned most of my documents into digital form. It allows you to scan to PDF, JPEG, or TIFF and to set the varying qualities for each.
Summary: It's portable and works well in that respect. It is also USB powered and works off your laptop battery, so you will not need batteries or to plug it in when you are traveling, which is a nice plus. But two major drawbacks: 1. Won't scan to PDF.
Summary: Ok, I was looking for a scanner to rid myself of paper clutter and those magazines that I was saving for one or two articles. I was undecided between the Brother DS-600 or the Fujitsu Scan Snap S1100. Since the Brother was less expensive I decided to try it out.
Summary: The unit works fine for single pages, which it is designed for. I am happy with the speed, size and weight of the unit. It is very portable and fits nicely into my laptop back-pack. The only negative I would mention is the paper feeding.
Summary: In retrospect, I would likely have been better off purchasing a standard wireless printer and keyboard combination, but I wanted a nimble scanner to digitize my pay stubs. This scanner does a better job than many similar products, but it certainly takes some work!
