    I'm looking for a scanner with OCR, and maybe ADF.

    So if anyone who has knowledge of them or owns one, please let me know what you suggest.

    I was thinking about the HP Scanjet 5590. but some its customer reviews arent so good. PCWORLD gave it 3 1/2 stars.. out of 5.

    I dont want to spend over $300 as well.

    HP scanners == overpriced.

    I like the epson products, myself. I have the RX500 all-in-one, and it's rocking my socks.

    If you don't need it to do photos, one of the fujitsu snapscans would rock. They come with a full copy of Acrobat writer and will let you scan duplexed documents right to pdf, or into your word processor of choice.

    the snapscan looks interesting. however, for that price $384.21 - $479.99 i want a flatbed scanner for photos / slides as well.

    thanks for your post!

    any other recomendations?
