I noticed in the picture examples of "Fine Tune" it says: Scanner Setting: ScanSnap S1500.

I got a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 (wonder if it is the same!) auto-feed scanner for my b-day last year. I have scanned over 100 pbooks. It will save as pdf, searchable pdf, word, excel, send to email.... It also has several settings for color, b&w, gray... I don't see any kind of "Fine Tune" though. It came with AbbyFineReader (may only be used with ScanSnap) and it also came with Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard.

I have no problem "ripping" a book apart and scanning while doing other things. It does take time proofreading and fixing.

I guess I might consider this service if I had some hardcover books I wanted scanned.
Also they only hold the books for 2 weeks after scanning (even though the file is available for 30 days). I may not get the time to review it before it gets recycled.

So right now I cannot justify spending $1 to scan 200 pages (plus shipping costs), but this has been an interesting thread!
