For a very good overview there is always the top Google return for
a whole host of searches on "linux usb" with scanner, sane, support
etc. I do try to list unsupported models, the problem is that manufactures
bring out models faster than I have time to update the page. However
there are supported models on the page that you can still purchase so
no excuses exist.

Anyone is welcome to send me information on new models that are not
supported, and in particular patches to the page are very welcome.

The basic advice for the last three years still holds true, pick an
Epson scanner and you cannot go far wrong. The only model I am not
sure about is the Perfection 660, and I warn about that in bold at
the top of the page. It may be a bit more expensive but at least it
will work.
