    I want to purchase a general purpose scanner with the best resolution possible for under $200. I do not need the ability to scan slides or negatives. I've been looking at the Canon and Microtek scanners and reading reviews about them but it's difficult to make a decision without seeing an actual copy or scan. Your recommendations would be appreciated!

    Do you already have a good printer? If not then I can

    highly recomend the Lexmark X73 and Lexmark X83 Printer,Scanner,Fax,Copier combos.

    You can get the 73 for $140.00 ish or the 83 for $190.00 ish.

    Both do the same resolutions (the 83 prints a little faster)

    The 73 will scan up to 2400 DPI (9600 Software) and will

    print at a true 2400x2400 DPI (It's amazine!) Dare I say it

    is professional quality! With a cheap price tag ta boot.

    Actually I have a fantastic printer. The Canon 820 prints photos so beautifully they look like they were professionally processed!

    CNET rates the Epson Perfection 1650 Photo as an editor's choice,
    http://computers.cnet.com/hardware/0-1073.html?tag=dir
    You can buy the Perfection 1650 (same model without the photo scanner) for well less than your $200. And there is a $30.00 rebate until the end of April.
    Good site is NewEgg where it is $166 plus $13 shipping. They also have the link to the rebate.
    PCWorld also highly rates the Perfection 1650.
