That's too bad...

It seems that the Visigo A4 or Visigo Travelscan 464 is supported
through SANE [1]. Have anyone any experience with this scanner? Does it
work well, is reliable etc? Alternately, has anyone gotten the Visigo
PS465 Simplex [2] (an updated version, I guess) to work on Linux?

I'm also interested in any other light-weight, portable and sturdy
scanners that would work in Linux. It's for scanning documents, so a
resolution of about 300 dpi should be plenty.
