    Any suggestions for a reasonable price to pay for a second-hand, but
    described "as new", still in the original box and used only twice:
    Minolta Dimage Scan Elite II?

    Any problems with Vista drivers?

    I'm in the UK.

    Sorry, I should have said - Vista 64.

    Thanks, I'll check. I vaguely remember a problem with VueScan but that
    may have been related to my 8800.

    Understood.

    I would not offer any more than about 75% of the street price for a new
    one.

    Yes, there are lots of problems with Vista drivers - but they seem to be
    diminishing.

    I don't mean any specific one but if you have craiglist available on your
    state (or country whatever) then you may find many people selling used
    electronics toys like digital camera, lens, scanner, projector etc. for as
    little as $20-30 to around less than 1/4 of the regular price. Of course
    some may ask for more than newer one but pretty rare.

    IOW, I have seen lot of scanner (didn't see any D-ICE) and even brand new
    inkjet printer for around $20-30
