HOWEVER, one thing you need to know is that this is a simplex (single side) scanner. The S1100 is about $65 higher priced, and that is because it is a duplex (double sided) scanner. If you don't mind turning the sheet over and feeding it again, this will work fine for you.
The S1100i appears to be the updated (late-2014) version of the venerable SnapScan 1100, but after a cursory 15-minute glance online, I wasn't able to locate any further information on the differences. I noticed that the sale price on Amazon for the older (ca. 2011) SnapScan 1100 is actually ~ $60 more than what I paid, yet all the information I can gather is that the 1100i is the newest model. So, I can't explain why so many people continue to buy the old unit at a premium...
What I can state is that the 1100i scanner is solidly built and feels of quality in the hand. The software suite is well-designed for the "push" operation that Fujitsu has determined to be the norm for this product (and, frankly, after using it for an hour, I have to agree with them on this operational workflow mode).
You'll see quite a few people complaining about lack of a TWAIN driver for the 1100/1100i, but you really don't need any software application to "pull" images via this low-volume scanner; you can establish direct push links to any software you wish to accomplish the very same effect. For instance, I setup the software to push to TechSmith's SnagIt image capture/editor, and it worked perfectly from the get-go. For those critics that won't consider this scanner simply due to the lack of a TWAIN driver, you are missing a great opportunity with this little guy. Others wonder about the inability to push mounds of paper through the 1100i; that's not what this minute scanner was intended to do. It is meant for quick, easy, carefree scanning of small documents, photographs, and receipts. Anything more than 10-20 pages (fed manually), and you will probably want to consider a larger dedicated high-volume scanner for that purpose.
1. Very small size, low weight.
2. Stout build quality.
3. USB-powered, quiet operation.
4. Dirt simple to operate and use; you don't even require a manual as it all just works and makes sense.
5. Simple, specific use, purpose-built scanner for small documents and ease of operation.
6. Excellent software suite that appears to be coded specifically for Mac / OS X. Huge marks on the software.
7. Nice, long USB cord so that the scanner stays out of the way when not needed.
8. Very simple mechanicals, and intuitive operation. You just "know" how to open the scanner to clear a paper jam.
9. Typical Fujitsu high-quality product.
1. Simplex scanning only. I knew this going in, but it would still be nice to retain this form factor and have duplex scanning.
2. No case; despite the steep price there is no carrying case included.
3. Software is a bit "weird" on installation as six different packages install simultaneously. But, they install without incident.
4. Price is a bit steep, especially when compared to Canon's similar products at a 40% lower price. But, I'm not dissatisfied with the SnapScan at all and feel I received great value for the price.
The Fujitsu SnapScan 1100i is a clear winner and deserving of a solid five-star rating. In fact, I am so impressed with this scanner that I'm purchasing a second one just for me to carry with me on the road so that I can continue my ongoing quest to become paperless.
This is an update to my original review below. I've had this scanner for a few months, and it went from bad-to-worse. . . . Fortunately I found the support phone number today in the information included with the documentation. They answered quickly. . . the guy was nice. . . sounded like in the U.S. . . . and . . . eventually. . . he asked me if I had a different cable I could try. Though I had a few that wouldn't fit. . . I eventually found one in a box that would fit. . . and. . . TA-DA. . . Now it works like a charm!!! No "issues" at all. Previously it would take form 3 - 10 tries to get a receipt or any other paper to scan. There was a software update a couple of weeks ago, and I thought that might help. . . but. . . it made it worse. It stinks that I got a faulty cable with a new scanner.. . but that's what happened. Nonetheless. . . now I'm a "happy camper".
Several observations. . . . .
First of all, I'm SO glad I just happened upon a website where I guy sells a .pdf "book" that's the "Unofficial ScanSnap Guide". (Google it) There is little documentation with this scanner, and you're kind of just "bumbling around" trying to find out how to use it. . . and this guide makes it SO much easier.
One of my main reasons for purchasing this scanner was to be able to scan receipts. . . . especially from office supply stores, grocery stores and drug stores. I donate a lot to charity and need to keep all of these receipts. They fade over time, so I wanted to have something that would work with this. I did research and though there were other options. . . some of them a bit less expensive than this scanner. . . but they didn't have good reviews when it came to scanning receipts. . . especially LOOOOONG receipts. But the reviews were good for ScanSnap when it comes to this. I have found that indeed scanning receipts, even looooong receipts, is fairly "painless" but not completely. First of all, it will scan 34" only. So if you have a receipt which is longer (and some of mine are) then you will need to cut the receipt. Not too big of a deal as you can combine them in the software. Second, the scanner wouldn't always accept the receipt. I would try it a couple of times, and then finally unplug it. . . wait a few seconds. . . plug it back in. . . and then it would start working again. Personally, I'm really not surprised, and this isn't really much of a "negative" for me because thermal receipt paper is really thin, so if I have to unplug it every now-and-then. . . . so be it.
Software that comes with the scanner. . . .
The receipt software does a good. . . but not perfect. . . job of finding the information on the receipt and placing it into the right boxes. . . but again. . it's not perfect, so you have to go through and check each one. I'm not interested in the actual items purchased. I just need information like the name of the store. . . date. . and amount. . . If you want it to, then the software can try to read the items that you purchased, but as you know from looking at receipts, that's not really going to work very well. But again. . . not what I was looking for anyway. You have to check each receipt. Once you've checked it, then it "disappears" so you know that it's been checked. Of course you can always view all of your checked receipts as well. You can also "split" receipts if you made, for example, both a business purchase and a personal purchase on the same receipt. You can also combine receipts. For example if the receipt is longer than 34", and you have to cut it, then you will need to "combine" it in the receipt software. But it's quick-and-easy. One thing that I really love is that previously I was manually entering all of the information into a spreadsheet. Now it can simply be exported from the receipt software.
For "documents" there is the "ScanSnap Organizer". This is separate software from the receipt software. It's a bit like a "filing cabinet". You create different "filing cabinets" and then different "folders". So you can sort everything. You don't have to use "ScanSnap Organizer" and can simply have scans go into whatever folder in Windows you want. But it just makes it a little easier, I think. The only "disadvantage" of using "ScanSnap Organizer" is if you want to be able to search the writing on your documents (OCR), then "ScanSnap Organizer" can only search documents that you scan through ScanSnap. You can add other documents from other sources to "Organizer", but you will not be able to search the content in those documents in "Organizer". Again, to me, at least right now, that's not an issue.
I don't deal with a lot of business cards. . but if you do. . . there is software that comes with it called "CardMinder". You can scan business cards into it and then export the data to Outlook, or lots of other things.
You can directly scan to email. . . . as well as other things such as Dropbox, Evernote, Sugar something-or-the-other, and so on.
ScanSnap scanners are not "TWAIN" devices. This means that software can not directly access your scanner. For example, WinFax faxing software can not directly access your scanner. But the "unofficial guide" gives you a "work around" that is really about the same thing. It's just as quick-and-easy to do it the way the "unofficial guide" shows you as it would be if the software you're using had direct access to your scanner.
This is kind of "funny". This scanner doesn't scan both sides at the same time (duplex scanning). The S1100 model does, but it's a little more expensive, and I don't really need it. I can turn the paper over if I need to. ;-) But the "unofficial guide" writer mentioned something that makes it easier . . . and I had NO idea that this scanner had this. He kept talking about "lifting the top". I didn't know there was a "TOP"! Well. . . . There is. Not one picture have I ever seen with the "top up". The "top" is the black "lid" where ScanSnap S1100i is written. Put your finger along the edge and it will pop open. When the top is "down", then the paper feeds straight through from one-side-to-the-other. When the top is "up" then it fees in-and-up. So you simply turn the page over and feed it back in. This does two things. #1, it makes it a bit easier if you need to scan both sides of a piece of paper. #2, it makes it nice if you have little space on your desk for paper to go in one side and out the other.
The quality of the scans are good. Though you "can" scan pictures, it's really not the type of scanner you want to scan pictures. A flatbed scanner would probably do a better job. But it certainly can be used for scanning most pictures.
The software is certainly not "pretty". But so far it does the job.
As for the scanner itself. The only thing that I don't really like about it is the "door" along the front. If the "door" is closed, then it unit is off. If the "door" is open, then the unit is on, and the "door" acts as the page guide. But the "door" is very "flimsy" and there's no "latch" or high-powered magnet to keep it closed. If you're going to carry it around, then I can only assume that the "door" is going to "flap open" constantly. . . and you'll eventually break it off. You're going to have to keep a rubber band handy to keep it closed. . . which is ridiculous. . . but true.
One last thing. . .If you're going to be scanning items which need to be folded (like paper which is too large to fit into the scanner) or paper that's perhaps torn. . . . anything that might not go through easily. . . . . then you're going to need a "carrier sheet". Fujitsu, the maker of ScanSnap, makes these (see link below). You can also find other brands of them as well if you search Amazon.
