    I'm looking to get a good scanner, but I don't want to spend a lot. About how much am I looking at for a totally decent scanner? And are there any models in particular that you guys like?

    wow... thats vague

    are you looking for a flat bed or slide scanner? whats your budget? what is the scanning for - internet purposes, high end digital editing/post processing for output? is size a consideration?

    I think I'd prefer a flatbed scanner. As far as my budget goes, eh...I don't think I want to spend more than $200, but under $150 would be nice. It'll mainly be used to take 35mm pictures and put them on the computer. I'd like for them to still look very good, and I'd like to be able to scan them at a very high resolution.
