Yeah, go easy on that "compare and contrast" stuff! You just gave me a bad flashback to my grade 11 Social Studies teacher

You may be a bit overwhelmed by all of VueScan's options, especially if you choose to display the "more" options, but it's pretty nice to use once you've figured out which options to use and which to ignore. I've found that it gives good scans right from the get-go, even on default settings.

What I like most is that it presents a common interface for however many scanners you might have. While it doesn't support every scanner ever made, it supports a whole mess of them (all three of mine) and it's nice not to have to look at a different interface for each scanner. Also, it's very stable in my experience, and I've never had any bad experiences. I paid for the "pro" edition which, IIRC, gives you free updates for life--another good thing. It even includes a (very) bare-bones OCR function.
