What scanners are best used with FreeBSD? I'm hoping for one that I

I've never configured a scanner for FreeBSD before and would like
recommendations on hardware before purchasing.
The best supported are those recognized by uscanner. 'man uscanner' or
look at /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/uscanner.c to see the list.
Also look at
to see which are the easiest to use (status "Good" or "Complete", no
firmware downloads needed).
Really, picking a scanner is tough. Finding ones that are supported is
tricky enough. Finding one that isn't terribly slow is worse, since the
manufacturers often don't provide benchmarks.
I have an Epson 1640SU which works great. Recommended, if you can find
