good scanner that fits legal or larger, support for Win XP?

  1. I'm looking for a good scanner that handles legal documents, with
    solid support under Windows XP.

    I would be using this to preserve old photos as well as paper
    documents, so image quality is important.

    Also, if one exists and is somewhat affordable, I'd like something
    that can handle larger sizes, 12" wide or more (ie for scanning LP
    covers). This is more a "nice to have" feature but I'd be curious
    what's out there.

    Any recommendations appreciated... Thanks

    Go to a photocopier sales company and ask them to track down a used
    photocopies that's in your price range. They just throw out most used
    ones but they generally have some mileage left on them.

    I just picked up a better-than-average one for a slightly higher price
    (I use it for work, too). It goes on the network and will scan right
    to your hard drive. It scans at 50 ppm. It'll handle up to 11x17.

    Scan quality is excellent.

    Mine is a Gestetner, which is a rebranded Ricoh or something.
