This may help - I was also interested in the Avision for the ADF and
duplex scanning but instead bought an HP Photosmart C7280. It has an
ADF but doesn't do duplex and it has WiFi, ethernet and USB interfaces.

ADF scanning works fine on linux (have to install hplip) and for
duplex I use a perl script and turn the pages over after scanning
the fronts to scan the backs, and the script sorts the images into
the correct order.
