Anyone know anything about scanners?

Want to get one for scanning old pics, making copies, etc.

Want to spend about $100.

I know tons of stuff about scanners I am a CDIA (Certified Document Imaging Architect)... but I think you just need to go to pricewatch and get a cheap one.

Under 100 bucks I would go with this one

Hewlett Packard Printer/Scanner/Copier 750 Ink-jet Printer

Do a google search... for some reason the link I am posting is not working, but for less than 100 bucks, this is the best you can buy.

If you want to sepend a little more, about 150

Get this one
HP PSC 1350 All-in-One Printer, Scanner, Copier

Certified huh? Cool
I don't want an all in one. Just a scanner.

The wife wants to scan all of these old pics and stuff and make some girly albums.

She also asked for MSFT Digital Imgage Pro 9 Suite so she can do all that crap and archive it

I bought the software last night....any comment/suggestions on the software?

Thanks

gave you that because you mentioned making copies. If you want just a scanner, it should be easy, let me get some models for ya.

As far as the software MSFT is pretty user friendly and she will get a lot of use out of it(At least the older version that I have used 99 I think it was). The software should go above and beyond anything you will need.

let me go look for some models.

It was one of those certifications that I picked up on accident (Vendor required someone on staff with that cert) and it ended up shaping a lot of my career afterwards.

I'm a Nikon fan when it comes to cameras, but hats off to Canon for making a nice scanner. I have a Canon Lide 30 and it's $79. It does up to 1200x1200dpi optical. It's also usb 2.0, which is good for speed. You should give one a try. They make higher end models in this series as well, but this one does an excellent job with photos....

I bought mine at the apple store, but it works with PCs and Macs. The closest apple store to you John is in Oakbrook mall off of 83 and 38. Call them first to make sure they still carry it. Otherwise, i think microcenter, circuit shitty, etc. might have it....
