Maybe, but I wouldn't guarantee for nothing: At least there are scanners which 
both are named 'Slimscan C3' but have different model-IDs and different 
calibration procedures :-(

But I think you are right, these are probably not SCSI-over-USB scanners. 
Though I don't know about the ones with additional Firewire interface. Isn't 
the firewire protocol somehow related to SCSI?
