i'm going to get a scanner (or rather get one through my workplace) and looking for recommendations/user opinions.
searching the web a bit, Cnet reviews aren't much and the user comments there are often quite the opposite of what the Editor's review says
i'm still reading around the web a bit, looking for good reviews.
anyway the models i was thinking of till now:
Canon: CanoScan 3200F, 5200F, Lide 50, Lide 80
HP: ScanJet 3670/3690, 3970, 4600, 4670
Epson i'm not very familiar with.
i'm not really sure how much budget i have to go on, but those models are more or less it.
the scanner will be used mainly for scanned printed documents, forms etc., maybe a bit out of books. scanning photographs is not likely to be done much (but it's nice to have a capable scanner in that function too, just for the odd picture).
