After much research, my family has decided to purchase a scanner to make digital images of all our slides (my parents were broke when i was a kid so all our family photos are slides). Looks like it will be more cost effective for us to purchase the scanner and then sell it once we're done (as opposed to having some one else do it for a couple of grand). Here's the list of scanners we're considering. Is anyone familiar with any of them, or can offer general feedback on the process?

Thanks!
