    Scanner

    I am new here and not sure where I should post this , so please be forgiving if I am in the wrong spot.
    I have a chance at a nikon CoolScan IV

    The asking price is $300 , I am sure I could get him down to about $250. I dont know what the true value of this scanner is but $300 is about my spending limit.

    I looked it up on the internet and it seems to only be about 2900 dpi. Nikon's current model scanners are at 4000 dpi.

    So how much difference is that ?
    Are their any current drivers that will allow it to work with windows vista ?

    How does this compare with some of the Epson scanners that are at 3200 x 9600 dpi ?

    I see some epson that are 3200 x 9600 dpi ranging in price from $90 to $700
    What is the difference?
    How do you choose a great scanner?
    I have no clue about scanners so any other advice or recommendations are welcome
    Tom

    Scanner questions are generally off topic at APUG, unless they are specifically about posting images in the APUG gallery. APUG's sister site, hybridphoto.com, is the place.
