Excerpt: Last year I had the pleasure of reviewing the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 Color Image Scanner . To start 2011, I’m reviewing the recently released Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100. In a nutshell, it’s another winner.
Conclusion: The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 is the perfect traveling scanner. It weighs less than a pound, and it is about 11 inches long and less than 2 inches wide and high. Scans are fast and high quality, though the S1100 is more suited to scanning one or two items rather than reams of pages.
Pros: Small and light, Fast, Good scan quality
Cons: No document feeder, No duplex scanning, Won't work with generic drivers
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.
Summary: Fujitu's $199 ScanSnap S1100 is great for mobile professionals with limited space in need of a fast, but high-quality scanner. Colors were accurate and bright, while black-and-white documents were clear.
