BTW, in the final sentence, you have "mulit-page" instead of "multi-page".

Therefore I bought and am very happy with the next model up, the Fujitsu SnapScan S1300.

That's true, but then you'll need a camera connection to the computer to get the file transferred. The scanner connects quickly, and saves the file as a pdf, which can then be opened immediately, and edited easily. I guess the way you do it depends on your needs.

Yes, many consider the Epson Workforce GT-S50 at least an equal to the ScanSnap, if not even better. As a full TWAIN scanner, it is more flexible and open than the ScanSnap, which really only works with its own software.

Not really. I use an Eye-Fi card with my camera, which wirelessly sends the images to my MacBook Air. This setup works quickly and smoothly for mobile scanning in libraries and other office environments. The ABBYY OCR software also does a decent job with photographed images of pages.
