Hi Nancy,
I think your question already appeared on this list so you might have a
look at the list archives.

Anyway I had very bad experiences using SANE on Windows with cheep
scanners, mainly because these scanners require the libusb library. This
library is working very well on linux but is absolutely not stable (at
least for uwing it with SANE) on Windows.

About scanner with ADF support, you might want to try the fujitsu (they
have both USB and SCSI interface) and they are well supported by SANE,
but they are expensive compared to what you asked.
