I bought a refurbished one from for less than $300
including shipping.  It is enroute, so I don't know what it
is gong to be like.  Supposedly it is packed with the same
materials as a new one.  The only thing I will have to
install is a SCSI card.  Previously I had bought a refurbed
Epson 1160 which came without the software (it was supposed
to be there).  Epson kindly provided the software and
manuals.  Now if Cone would just get his piezography inks
here ;-)

For a flatbed, I am using a cheap 1600x1600 Visioneer
scanner.  Works great.
