The only downside is the cost, most likely due to lack of competition.
It is designed to take a stack of photos and quickly scan them. In this, it really succeeds. You can mix sizes, orientations, color/b&w. Even if a photo goes in angled the software will produce a good straight scan. The controls are limited - no cropping, limited edited - but for what it is designed to do, it does extremely well. You can rotate and perform a very simple retouch. I have heard that many of the bulk scanning services use this scanner. In less than one hour, I scanned a couple of hundred photos at 600dpi.
Upsides: Good quality scans at reasonable resolution very quickly with no hassle.
Downside: Expensive, software simple and is limited to bulks scanning. Requires Windows so I had to bootcamp my Mac.
I have an Epson 4490 flatbed scanner which is good but, by my calculations, using the Epson I'd be about 102 years old by the time I finished the task at hand! I searched long and hard on line for a suitable batch scanner and ended up with the Kodak s1220; and after six weeks I am happy to report that it is a fantastic machine.
The software installation wasn't exactly intuitive (I am normally too impetuous to read instructions but, for document scanning, the instructions were non-existent). Nonetheless, I muddled through and can now create good quality fully OCR'd PDF's at the rate of about six-seconds per page from start to finish so that a twenty page document takes around two minutes to complete. Single sided or double sided scanning appears to make no difference to the speed.
I use Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard to create the documents - it communicates flawlessly with the s1220. Of course I have to "tell" the machine whether I want single or double sided scanning and whether I want black-and-white or color scanning but that is understandable and, through the s1220 interface software, it's easy to do.
For photographs I have "fed" the scanner an assorted mix of photo sizes and have seen some of the smaller prints go through skewed - but with automatic straightening by the scanning software the end result is everything I need.
The s1220 isn't cheap but, for my needs, it's a worthwhile inverstment.
