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.
Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 Portable Document Scanner--Review of the Fujitsu...
24 April 2013
Summary: The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 is a portable document scanner that runs off of a single USB cable. It's quite fast and accurate in addition to being small, and it will automatically deskew scans so you don't need to worry about feeding paper in exactly at the correct angle. Included software allows the ScanSnap Manager to do optical character recognition on documents as well as business cards from around the world.
Pros: Portable, Runs via USB cable, Extremely small, Great job on business cards, even international ones, Easy to use
Cons: One page at a time scanning, No carrying case
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: 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. And although we were disappointed with the lack of TWAIN driver support, the S1100 more than redeems itself with its stellar performance.
Pros: Excellent scan quality, Vertical output makes scanning in tight spaces easy, Fast scanning time
Cons: Lacks TWAIN driver support, Document feeder tray a little flimsy
