Wondering if a new S1500 scanner is worth the expense

Document Scanning -- I have a fairly old Fujitsu FI-4120c scanner I use for scanning double sided documents. I'm wondering whether a newer S1500 is worth a buy?

Over the years the 4120c seems to be getting more and more finicky about mishandling pages. It'll go fine for a few pages then chomp down on 3 at a time. It's also USB 1.1, so it's a whee bit slow when trying to do anything at a higher end dpi.
The stats on the S1500 seem fairly similiar though -- except for the USB connection, the stats pair up. Has anyone upgraded from an older 90's model of Fujitsu to the S1500 and noticed any considerable difference?
