I am a sole practicing lawyer who needed a scanning solution that was fast, accurate, able to handle multiple size paper, didn't take up a lot of real estate on my desk, and worked. This scanner does very well on all those levels. One surprising feature (at first) is that it scans both sides of the paper at once, and then parses the sides in separate pages. I have no idea if it would be good for anything other than an office purpose (i.e. high res photo scanning), but if you need a scanner for scanning documents and turning them into PDF files I don't think you have to look further.
