I previously bought two of these scanners about a year ago for my paperless office, one for my desk and one for my partner. We also have a larger, MUCH more expensive central machine in the copy room. I just bought another ScanSnap to put on my secretary's desk because these little desktop scanners outperform every other scanner I have ever used. These things burn through page after page in absolutely no time at all. Their sleek look and small foot print makes it easy and convenient to pop one on your desk right next to your keyboard, which saves a lot of time. The scan quality, duplexing, file type, saving, and color options are all easily configured to generate pretty much any output you desire. I honestly can't recommend these things highly enough. You won't be disappointed.
