I have been happy with four different Epson scanners; am using a V500 Photo right now. FWIW.

It may be a prejudice, but H-P equipment is ill at ease in a graphics department. I have no experience with H-P scanners, only printers, but when it comes to drivers and ease of use, I vote for Epson every time.

Why does your hypothetical group need legal size scanning? It is not commonly needed in printing department.

If the printing quality is meant to be very high you might want even better scanners than the ones you listed (or others of that type). Flatbed scanners are relatively slow.

You seem to be assuming digital images. No slides? Flatbed scanners often have transparency units in the cover, but there are also dedicated slide scanners on the market.

Just playing devil’s advocate here.
