Rick,

The Kodak has gotten mixed reviews, although there are a few on this list
that seem to be happy with it.  I lost track of the one magazine review that
I read, which was rather negative regarding the scanner's software, in
particular.

I almost bought it, but after hearing one more negative review on it, I
chickened out and bought the Minolta Scan Dual II, which saved me $670 based
on then current B&H prices.  Now I can afford to get a second monitor.  I am
happy with the Minolta, but have not yet tried to make anything larger than
8x10.  The software is easy to use, and I am having fun making prints on
various papers on my Epson 1160.

After a year or so, I will reassess my needs, and the new generation of more
expensive scanners will have had a chance to get debugged somewhat by then.
