    Stuck in the middle with you
    All flatbed scanners do a really bad job of scanning negatives. If I were you I'd ask a camera shop to just scan and burn them for you, as negative scanners are expensive.

    I have an HP ScanJet 4670 and it's spectacular! It's the kind that stands up, so it doesn't take up that much space. I think that it dropped from $150 to $100. It includes a negative scanner attachment.

    I have an HP DeskJet 5940 and it's awesome as well! It is really fast with text, and it does very good quality (not great, but very good) 4x6's. Also, it can print a borderless 8.5x11" page. $100 as well.
