Have you actually found
anything in the sane-devel mailing list in which a lide70 scanner will work? The most recent indication I found was this thread here
. In the end the user is encouraged to obtain another scanner. Presumably, if a way had been discovered earlier, then the user would have been directed to it(?)
90E = 117USD = 170NZD
Cheap scanners in NZ are around 150NZD new.
So I'll add "overpriced" to that "cheap and nasty" comment earlier
For others who are checking in - the way to buy a scanner is:
1. determine your price range & features you want
2. look around a number of vendors and note down the manufacturer and models you like
3. look up the scanners for compatibility.
4. Buy the best featured/cheapest supported scanner for sale.
(If none are supported - look for close models which are supported and ask the vendors.)
