I think I am going to purchase the Epson Perfection v600 scanner. I have a lot of slides that my parents took of us growing up (apparently slides were the thing back in the day). But I want to start to get them scanned in before something happens to them and we lose them forever. It has some great software that comes with it for removing dust/scratches. Basically photo restoration software. I think @ryanator was into this some if I am not mistaken.
