I am the OP for this thread. I am looking for a high resolution document
scanner only, (no printer, no copier (I have a laser printer already)
functions) with a usb or scsi interface. Years ago I had an HP C2
scanner which worked very well but it was big and slow. Plus I only had
windows drivers for it.
