I was rcently in the market for a flatbed scanner and stumbled across a review in a magazine. Although the canoscan wasn't the best model on test for the money, it did well enough to interest me. (gaining a score of 71%) The canoscan looks great and is only a third of the size of a standard flatbed. (even the most expensive ones) It looks great, and is styled really well. The quality of scanning is good (not 5 star, but good enough for the home/internet user) witha max resolution of 600x1200 dpi, in 32 bit. Its also very quick, taking only 10 seconds to fully scan a photograph. It comes with some good software (including ulead photo express) and the whole package is easy to use. It also comes with a trial piece of OCR software (software which scans text and converts it into an editable format for your word processing program) As far as I've seen, this works well, with few mistakes being made. I bought the 630P (the parallel port version) but it is also available in a USB version. (630U) My model cost me 69.33 pounds from www.jungle.com, which is a very reasonable price.
