Cheap old flatbed scanner of mine finally died ( ). Here's the problem. I've been looking pretty hard at the Konica Minolta DiMage Scan Dual IV. BUT my wife ask the killing question to me " I'll still be able to scan documents right?" :evil: Is there any flatbed out there than will scan a slide or Neg. as good as the Minolta (without of course breaking the bank)? Haven't been real impressed with what I've seen so far. If I could hide the Minolta somewhere in my den where I knew she'd never find it I would just order it. The worst of it is our old scanner was used just every once in awhile for scanning pages. :roll: Thanks for the help!
