I ended up getting the Epson Perfection 3590 Photo. Got it set and running with no problem. My daughter made the first scan.
It is her stuffed fish named George.
The scanner can scan slides and films so I tryed a slide next.
It came out okay. I may need to experiment a liitle with that. But slides were not something I was that interested in. Nexted I scanned a black and white image, my main use. I was very happy with the results. Here is a pen and ink drawing I scanned to see how well it would hold the cross hatching.
