Getting ready to pull the trigger to add scanning capability here. I am not looking to spend more than $150.
As I am a separates kind of guy, stand alone flat bed scanner is the way I am leaning. Plus the Epson Styus printer, that I've had a few years now, still works well and is good enough for what I do with it. Not sure what I might get for my Epson, but I think the odds are good that its resale would make the all-in-one route competitive.
I've read the latest Consumer Reports and per them there are a couple, high-value candidates for both choices in my price range. Canon's Canoscan 4200F seems like the leading flat bed option. Amazon has it for ~$89 delivered. For all-in-ones, Canon's Pixma MP450 looks to be a great option. I have not checked on-line pricing for it.
Any input on which way to go, models I should consider and places to shop for the best price will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance....
