I'm looking for an ADF-capable scanner to do fast scanning. Has anyone got
recommendations for models that meet most of the following criteria?

 - 1-bit and greyscale modes are the only ones that matter here

 - 300 dpi, and able to do 300dpi at high speed

 - ADF (or ADF option) that has good paper-feed reliability

 - ADF with at least 50 sheet capacity

 - USB 2.0 or Firewire interface, preferred over SCSI-only units

 - Linux SANE compatibility exists today.

 - Limited feature/modes support OK, only  need the 300dpi bw,grey

Hoping for something in the $400-$900 range (new, including ADF),
depending on how fast it is for this type of scanning.

I would also try a good used model if recommended, but most well-supported
older ones seem to be SCSI units.

Thanks if anyone has any recommendations.
