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.
