I'm another that's perfectly happy with my SCSI interfaced scanner. a 
Fujitsu M3097DG - B&W!  It does everything I want, so I see no reason to 
replace it.

My only issue is that, last time I checked it was still interleaving  
the front and back of a page when duplex scanning.  ( two page images, 
both with diagonal stripes of front/back/front/back/...)

(One of these days I'm going to dig into Sane and fix that..)

Please, don't drop SCSI support without good reason!
