joel, my company builds a distributed document scanning application, and 
we use the fujitsu fi-4120C at each site. have a couple dozen of them in 
the field, and they seem to work quite well. you need the latest sane cvs 
checkout to make the most of them, however, as support is somewhat new. 
fujitsu also supports opensource projects a bit better than other vendors, 
so i dont mind giving them my bosses money :)

they are scsi and usb 1.1, scsi is faster in color or at hi-res, but usb 
is fine at 200dpi b+w.
