I'm assuming you are using some version of Windows. In my case, I didn't buy a scanner but one of the combo multi-function machines. I have a laser printer that I use for most printing and now I also have a color inkjet printer if needed to print photos.

Canon MX372 cost me $50 at Fry's and it does up to 1200 dpi x 2400 dpi scanning

Scanner
Scanning Element Contact Image Sensor (CIS)
Max. Resolutions Optical: 1200 x 2400 dpi
Interpolated: 19,200 x 19,200 dpi
ADF: 600 x 600 dpi (Optical)
Scanner Features Auto Scan Mode, Push Scan
Color Depth 48-bit internal/24-bit external
Max. Document Size Flatbed: 8x5" x 11.7"

ADF: 8.5" x 14"

Does it have a hinged scan cover? So that the scanner top sits on the graded cards. Instead of on a slant bc the cards are too thick for it to close?

I have always been a fan of the Epson all in one's.

I have a work force 2500 or 2600 series (2 years old)

Qulaity is good. Hinged cover. You can always not close the cover and cover with white poster board

Here is a scan from it, though resized after scanning., Most scanner have an issue with Graded cards and focus.

I have an Epson Perfection V300 Photo Scanner that does graded like that. It handles depth/focus very well.

My only problem is that it does the lines on Chrome Refractors.

Here's an example of the Epson Perfection V300 (and I'm using these cards just so no one can ever accuse me of using a scanner thread to show off )
