Yes, this was posted and removed, probably for self promotion, but I ordered then and just got mine yesterday and so far I'm impressed. I've used two scanners at work, a $1900 Fujitsu one and a $250 HP Scanjet, both with ADF. This trounces the HP on speed, size, quality and the HP doesn't even do Duplex. It obviously doesn't trounce the Fujitsu on speed, but it is pretty darn fast and I gotta say smaller than anything I've ever used. The only downside to that is that it doesn't have a glass bed, so you are limited to scanning paper documents, pictures or business cards (I wouldn't try a passport or drivers license).
Secondly, this comes with two pieces of software. The first is a very basic solution, Scanwizard DI, which includes the driver, but I wouldn't use the software. The other software is a license to ABBYY Finereader Sprint 9.0 software which is extremely impressive. It can do scans to PDFs, word documents, etc. and the OCR is insanely good. I was so impressed with the software that I went out and bought the full version of Finereader. I should also point out that this software entitles you to the upgrade discount rate on the full version of finereader and they are having a 50% off sale right now and if you are a student it's even cheaper.
So color me fairly impressed so far, although I can't comment on longevity as I've only had 24 hours and about two dozen sheets of testing so far. Also I should point out that many different companies sell this same scanner for $$$. It must be made by one company in China and then other companies just rebrand it.
