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.

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
Summary: Despite their similar price and features, the ScanSnap S1100 and HP's ScanJet Professional 1000 are surprisingly different. While the duplex HP comes with a soft case and feels built to last, the ScanSnap is easier to use and comes with an impressive and beautifully integrated suite of software.
Conclusion: The S1100 is a very useful device for those who travel regularly, or need to scan documents at their desk. At £135, it's a bit more expensive than some other scanners of a similar size, but the included functionality makes it a good investment.
