    I have always had good results with Epson products - I generally buy from
    the Epson online store - great prices on refurb. I've done scanners and
    printers for several systems.

    There is no "best". There are just varying degrees of different. I
    have 4 scanners in my office. They are all used for different
    things. The range from a dedicated negative scanner to a 35 page per
    minute scanner that scans like there's no tomorrow.

    It all depends of what you want to do and what your budget is.

    have used canon products but they are awful at keeping their drivers up to
    date

    a scanner with slide capability would be best for me

    cheers

    Personally, I like a dedicated film scanner for film and slides. I
    think they work better. If you want a better quality scanner, look
    for a "wet" scanner. Even if you use it dry, it's still usually a
    good scanner.

    I use a Epson V100 to scan my prints, negs and slides and get great results.
    One thing I always scan film at 2400dpi @ 100% and than re-res in Photoshop
    back to 300dpi because enlarging in the Espon or any other scanning software
    is not good.

    Hope that helps..............Hb:)

    Then look for a Vista-compatible one that does digital ICE, unless the
    slides are Kodachrome.

    I have to say I have succumbed to another canon prod the 8800f

    at least I can scan slides etc but the bundled software is slow though it
    does come up with the goods

    the other prod with the scanner is Lasersoft software which is very fast
    but seems crap at first sight on slides and negs

    Anyone used the Laser software and 8800f

    cheers
