This scanner is a flatbed scanner which connects via USB and is also powered via USB. I bought it around a year ago at the price of $200 at Fry's Electronics.

This is what it looks like:

•Maximum image resolution of 12002400dpi
•Works with both Mac and PC computers
•Came packaged with Adobe Photoshop 5.0LE

•Very slim and sleek, only one inch thick.
•Draws power through USB, so no outside power is needed
•Sharp, clear images with well-balanced color
•Good, light software for quick copies
•Nice stand included for vertical usage/storage
•For the most part it is a fast scanner even at higher resolutions

•Slightly expensive for something I use only periodically
•USB cord doesn't snap in very well, it often comes unplugged accidentally

Bottom line: I would recommend this scanner because of all of its features and practicality. It was a nice looking scanner, but despite its practicality, $200 was too much to pay. They are going for about $35 on ebay, so if you are in need of a good scanner, I'd suggest snatching one.
