I've had mine for 2.5 years (bought it right here for the same price) and I'm so glad I did. I don't use the accounting parts of the software, just the PDF-creating feature. It takes decent copies, both in grayscale and color, though it's not anything near photo quality.
I took mine to China and saved maybe 10 pounds from my luggage by digitizing papers and throwing away the originals. It starts getting a bit cranky if you use it for too long, but it takes a few hundred scans in a row to get there.
Right now my scanner operates as well as it did when I first bought it, and doesn't show signs of degrading soon. In short, I recommend it for anyone who wants to digitize a few dozen documents at a time.
