I have a 3600. Yesterday I scanned a 250 page book in about an hour, using the side scan and rotate book method. It took about an hour, so four pages per minute. I don't have Word or Word Perfect, so Abbyy Sprint 5 puts into rtf and opens WordPad for me. That conversion took about 2-4 minutes maybe - I didn't time it. I haven't found a lot of recognition errors, but removing the page breaks (because I don't try to crop out page numbers) and the hyphens can take a few more hours... Then I open it with Open Office and save to html. That's as far as I've gotten so far.
