Do check to see if the manufacturer has drivers that support your OS;
I have an older Epson Perfection Photo 3200 and its Firewire port no
longer is supported on current Mac OS versions ... it still works on
USB2, but takes a 40% hit in slower I/O, which adds up quickly for
more serious scan sizes/resolutions/bit depth.
In general, flatbeds are ok for prints & general paperwork; for
transparencies they're okay too for low resolutions - - for best
results, one really needs to get rid of the glass surface between the
sensor head and the original.
If you have a bunch of 'bulk' stuff that isn't particularly fragile/
treasured, its probably worth your free time & sanity to send it out
to a service instead of doing it yourself.
