I'm often scanning invoices, this is my main use at the moment. I do 
scan pictures as well and I have a plan to scan all my negatives to have 
them digitally to preserve quality. I'm open to any suggestions of brand 
and function. I focused on Epson because I'm currently of the opinion 
that it's good value for the money :-)
