Default Scanners (hardware, which scanner do you use)

Hi
I was thinking of upgrading my scanner to get better quality images, are there any recommendations, which scanner do you use?
I have a cheap HP 1510 which works ok, but I presume you can get better quality from a better scanner.

I recently bought a Canon CanoScan 9000F MarkII and I am rather satisfied with it. I paid about 200 EUR.

Main usage is scanning old family albums and occasionally photo books.

Pros:
* works with Linux (which is less and less a problem nowadays)
* scan quality is good
* speed (it is faster than the cheaper Canon Lide models)
* it can scan negatives (although I am not sure I really need this. But there could still be some negatives in a closet somewhere)

Cons
* bigger and heavier than the Canon Lide models. This is a disadvantage for me as I cannot easily take it to my parents to scan the old family albums there.
* more expensive than Canon Lide (about 100 EUR more I think)
* needs an extra power supply (Canon Lide are powered by USB connection)
* no ADF (automatic document feed)

I did not test the software that came with it, since it is of course Windows software.

I do not know if there is really a difference in quality, as long as you scan with 300dpi. I am scanning the books with 300 and Photos with 600dpi.

Before you go out and buy a new scanner, look if you can find newer drivers for your scanner. Sometimes that can make a huge difference. Don't know if you use the original HP drivers & software, but I got big improvements when I used VueScan on my slidescanner.
