I can't speak to the latest models, but I have an Epson Stylus Photo
R-200 and for scanning an Epson Perfection 4490 Photo, also a lcd
projector. The printer works with my linux pc which is one of the
reasons for purchasing epson. I bought all as refurbished, through
whatever is the refurbished link on the website. Zero problems with any.
The scanner comes with rigs for scanning transparencies and negatives up
to 6x7cm. I jerryrigged a system to scan my old 4x5" negatives and
transparencies, then assembled in GIMP.
