If you've been reasonably happy with your Photosmart, any of the 2700 or
2900 dpi scanners should be a step up.  I would guess that the LS40 would
be a good buy in your case if you're happy with 2900dpi and want the
convenience of ICE (or Vuescan's dust removal).

This was only mentioned with respect to 4000dpi.  Only of concern if you
*need* 4000dpi.  If you *do*, IMO there's not much wrong with the
Polaroid SS4000, especially if you keep it dust free.  Tony has one...


PS I wouldn't necessarily expect concensus because you haven't defined
your requirements. :)
