I don't keep up with these things, so I don't have any specific hardware recommendations, but my own rule re buying new scanners is "First check that it's supported by VueScan"


I don't know whether it's a universal rule or I've just been "lucky" but I've found that the software that comes with scanners is bloated crapware designed for people with no knowledge of scanning/images and of limited intelligence.

VueScan supports nearly everything, does nearly everything, and even lets you choose the level of interface/options you want.

And before I start to sound even more like a commercial than I already do, I'll shut up. Over to you if you'd like to give it a look. There's a free trial. Oh, and it doesn't leave messes all over your PC.
