Scanner Recommendation

Hello All!

I recently repaired a friends HP 5370C scanner. When testing it I found out it does a much better job than my Microtech scanner (6000 series) The detail and color accuracy is superior.

I am looking to update my flat bed scanner. I have a PC system with USB ports. I would like something that has better resolution and color accuracy. The Epson Perfection 4870 looks interesting.

Scanning negatives does not matter because I have a dedicated film scanner.

If Anyone has suggestions, I would appreciate it.
Thanks,
John

Found the basic information I needed elsewhere......I thought this was a discussion forum. 76 views and not one person can recommend a good scanner?

Well jjhannon the drum scanners from ICG are pretty good, but I have a strange feeling they may be a bit too good for what you're looking for - but at least I recommended some!

I have had good results with the Epson Perfection series of scanner, but I'm not sure if they are good enough for what you want....?

Saw your post, but had nothing constructive to contribute, sorry you felt snubbed, not the experience I've had here.
