sane support is 'good' on both models.

i think both of those models are discontinued, but if you can get them 
cheap it might be worth it. the 4120 is usb 1.1 and scsi, and usually 
comes with a scsi card and cable. it is a much nicer scanner the the 5110 
series, but usb 1.1 is very slow for larger scans.

i think the 5110eox is usb2 only, and a little slower and noisier than the 
4120, but you can actually get the data out of the scanner with usb2 :)

if you have the option, the 4120c2 is usb2, and adds some neat features 
like background color changing, i have one sitting on my desk, so support 
is pretty good :)
