    Oh, that sucks. I found the same scanner on Ebuyer but more pricey for some reason. Why is it cheaper in US dollars when i convert but pricier in Euro lol

    I have an Epson Perfection v100 Photo and I love it. I actually prefer it to the Canon I owned previously.

    Seefy:
    How would you compare the Epson compared to other brands?

    xD I'm looking for a new one under $100 that isn't horrible like my HP.

    @kami: Try amazon. (And if you are a student in college or know someone who is you can get a free Amazon prime trial. This means you can get free one or two day shipping.)

    I've only used HP, Epson, and Canon, but both HPs that I've used are awful. My Canon was pretty old, but it got the job done. I like the Epson, though, because it has a lot of Photoshoppery in the scanning window, so you can adjust levels, sharpness, color tint, curves, and brightness/contrast all before you even hit scan. That way I don't have to open up Photoshop and fiddle with that before uploading things online.

    I've had Canon's and they've both lasted fairly long. I currently have a CanonScan LiDE 30 and I think it's like 10 years old now or something.
