Have a look for the thread "Real Fast Scanner!" I started this week on 
this mailing list.

I am looking for a similar produkt and found it verry dificult to find 
such a scanner for less than 200 Euro. I found the Epson 2400 (199 Euro) 
to be the fastes scanner for linux and less than 200 Eur.
(test url:http://www.pcwelt.de/tests/hardware-tests/scanner/27272/ )

I found many fast and cheap scanners not to be supported by sane (for 
example epson perfection 1670).

For windows I found the canon 3200F to be a verry very fast device ( and 
less than 100 Euro). But not supported too.

I would be interested If you find any other fast device for sane.
