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.
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.
