Summary: I bought one of these used in 2010 when an Amazon vendor was selling them for $300. Received one in almost new condition (less than 200K copies), best value for a feeder scanner ever. I've had no problems in a year and a half.
Great little scanner that can handle a lot of throughput
1 July 2011
Summary: This is a great little scanner that can pump through a lot of less than perfect paper and different sizes with few issues. We now have three of these at our office and they have helped us move to a semi-paperless system with less pain than we expected.
Summary: We have purchased two (2) of these before, and they are very good. We average around 1,200 items scanned DAILY, and it lasted around 3 years. We had to replace one due to the sensors finally going bad, and if they stop working, the entire machine needs replaced.

Summary: We just received this scanner, and it installed instantly. It scans quickly, feeding about 2 seconds per page at 200 dpi and a little over 4 seconds per page at 400 dpi. We've seen scanners absolutely wreck a computer system, probably due to driver problems, but we checked and did not have that...
Excerpt: Vor zwei Jahren wechselte ich meinen Arbeitsplatz in die EDV-Abteilung (Sachgebiet Digitalarchiv). Meine neue Aufgabe in dieser Abteilung ist es, die im Archiv befindlichen Akten zu digitalisieren, sodass die Sachbearbeiter jederzeit die gerade benötigte Akte auf ihrem Bildschirm aufrufen können.
Pros: schnell, klein, robust
Cons: staubempfindliche Linse, eignet sich nicht um Fotos einzuscannen
