I have the 2450 and it scans 2 1/4 very nicely, but slowly compared 
to scanning 35mm on my HP S 20 Photo Smart. However, if you use Mac 
and OSX, be aware that the driver for the 2450 only works in OS9 
which means you have to toggle back and forth between operating 
systems which is a BIG Pain for me as I am new to Mac and didn't want 
to learn more than one OS. Hopefully there will be a driver upgrade 
to OSX soon.
