Summary: I had to replace my trusty old scanjet 5P - no longer compatible - so the price was right on this LIDE100 and it performs quite nicely. I'm no graphics expert, so for what it's worth, my opinion is this one is well worth it.
Summary: In this Multifunction Printer world, I just wanted something smaller and single function. This fit the bill nicely. The setup was easy, the footprint small and 10 minutes out of the box I was scanning into Inkscape. For the price for 8x10 docs it can't be beat.
