Hey, I'm having a difficult time selecting a reliable scanner. The main issue I'm running across is the software problems with Epson and Apple operating systems. Visiting numerous message boards and web sites, I've discovered a very serious compatibility problem with Epson Scanners and Apple operating systems. The downloads/ patches seem to work only half the time. Yea, I know most of you are saying to buy a scanner by another company, but let's be honest; Epson probably makes the best scanners on the market. I have a Sony Digital Camcorder, Canon i960 Photo Printer, and a Canon A80 Digital Camera. I use these together and need a reliable scanner. I don't too much trust scanners by Canon, HP, Or Visioneer. So, what do most Mac/ Powerbook users prefer in regards to a top scanner for $200 and under. Remember now, Epson has some serious flaws with there software, not to mention there horrible cunstomer service dept.
