    I do alot of document scanning for record keeping and accounting of my businesses and personal life. I have to RDP to an old Windows box that has a scanner hooked into it now. What is a good all around scanner for the mac? Also, what is a good high speed scanner for mac?

    I haven't decided if I'm going to be cheap and get one to get me by, or get a really good one... either way:

    Cheap: <$70
    High Speed, Good One: <$400

    Scanner recommendations

    I just received my new MacPro and am interested in compatible recommendations for a relatively high-end flatbead scanner. Ron

    I have a Canon LIDE 25 that I'm really happy with. I've been using the software that it came with and it works great. To scan an average photo at 600 DPI takes about 4 minutes. I haven't scanned any documents so can't say how long that takes. The best thing about it was it cost only $50.

    I've got a Canon LiDE 35 (At least I think its 35) which I got a couple of months ago and its great. Really compact and does exactly what I want. High quality scans too although it can be a bit slow at times. I scanned and printed (in photocopy function) an entire ring binder folder's worth of notes in an evening. It probably took about 8 hours in total but there were a *lot* of pages. I'm very happy with it! :)
