Are sheetfed scanners made any more? [more inside]

I would like to be able to scan in various hand written sheets throughout the day, and would like a sheetfed scanner like setup. However, when I looked, I discovered you basically can't find them anymore.

I remember years ago when I saw a keyboard with a sheet fed scanner at the top of it.

Can you still obtain sheet fed scanners that aren't part of all-in-one devices, and won't take up half of your desktop space?

Pricewatch lists a few, including the Visioneer Strobe that BlueTrain linked above. Logitech used to make a decent one (called PageScan USB, I belive), but I can't find it on their site.

You can also get flatbed scanners with auto document feeders that bascially do the same thing. While only one sheet at a time, the Visioneer Strobe looks pretty cool, though.

I wouldn't discount the all-in-ones out of hand. Many are pretty small and less expensive than stand-alone scanners. I like this one from HP, which I bought to use as a fax machine.
