I recently found a used flatbed scanner for USD$15.00.
It is a CanoScan LiDE 35. I see all sorts of used flatbed
scanners at the thrift shops for USD$10-15.
It does a good job. The 4 buttons on it don't work in Debian,
but that's okay... XSane has all the buttons you'll need!
When I was in the used-computer shop, I simply asked the
proprietor to look-up the CanoScan LiDE 35 on the Internet
and he did. My $15 CanoScan LiDE 35 has the exact same
form-factor as the one in the retail store selling for over $100.
If it's listed on the above sane-mfgs.html page, it should be good!
