mine is HP deskjet 845c, but guess this is a very very old scanner (and i don't think it is still on sale) the quality is horrible, i must edit it heavily on photoshop to make a good result but it's not a big problem since i rarely do traditional art now. in my country you can get printer + scanner for really cheap price, mostly below $100 (i found one with the price $20-$50, wow)
I actually read your review the day I got my Epson, it made the decision even easier. It was also the only scanner that was just a scanner, the salesperson tried to convince me to get a Lexmark all-in-one but I've never had good luck with Lexmark. I was pretty chuffed with the quality as soon as I scanned my first image.
Hmmm, the one at my house? hahaha. I think it's an Epson scanner. I mainly scan on 9 x 12 mixed media paper and watercolor paper, which I both like painting / drawing on. However, recently I've been painting on 11 x 15 watercolor paper and 11 x 14 canvas board, and that's too big for the scanner, so I take photographs of those.
I don't even know if they make these any longer (a quick google search for "Cannon LiDE" turned up a new modle of the version I have), but I've had a Canon CanoScan LiDE scanner which has been with me on the road a few times, it's lightweight, makes great scans at high resolution, and is powered entirely via USB, so there aren't any extra power cables required, or outlets to be sought out when traveling.
Scanner eh. I use an HP one, not really sure on which model it was, but it does the job well enough. The main question you'll want to ask yourself is how big your traditional art is going to come in. i.e. When I bought my scanner everything was drawn on normal American Printing Paper, but now that I draw normally at 9x12 and 24x36 on occasion, it just... doesn't quite cut it.
Mine came in about $80, but I chose it for it's high DPI, as I also bought it for scanning photos and such. But high res art scans are also nice because when I bring them in to photoshop to ink and such it lets me upscale the size at the same time.
Best bet is ask yourself what size you'll usually be drawing/ painting/ whatever, and get a scanner that can at least scan that. I recommend 300dpi minimum if you want to reproduce it, but if not, then 100dpi is more than adequate for uploading to dA.
