Conclusion: The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 is everything a portable scanner should be: Portable, and a scanner. Fujitsu has demonstrated perfectly that these two traits aren’t mutually exclusive by any means. There’s been no sacrifice to quality whatsoever in bringing down the size or power usage. There are a small handful of drawbacks I noticed.
Summary: They also report treating it more delicately than a desktop scanner, and its one-page-at-a-time feeding discourages lengthy document scans. Warranty A good warranty for a good scanner. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 has a limited one-year warranty, which is standard among better-quality scanners. Few users report needing to use it, so there is not a lot of data on how difficult it is to make a claim.
Pros: Small and light, Fast, Good scan quality
Cons: No document feeder, No duplex scanning, Won't work with generic drivers

Summary: This small, A4 scanner from Fujitsu is very convenient to use: it draws its power from a USB port and it can be used right there at your desk to scan loose sheets of paper one at a time. Some useful software ships with it, too, although its business card scanning software isn't great.
Pros: Small and light, Convenient to use, Runs off USB
Cons: Business card scanning software isn't great, A little noisy for a quiet office environment
Conclusion: A neat scanner that is highly portable and has a good range of software to support it. On the negative side, it has to be manually fed, scans one side only, and isn’t Twain-compliant, so it doesn’t integrate with standard graphics packages, such as CorelDraw. But we still liked it.
