The obvious choice, if you are out to buy a scanner to use with EZ Color is the Epson Expression 800 Artist Edition (or the more expensive version with the trans adaptor if you have a use for that). This is a great 800 by 3200 dpi scanner with a good density range, good bit depth and excellent software, which comes with a copy of Monaco Profiler Lite (aka: EZ Color) bundled with it. Not only is this a grat scanner with excellent scanning and profiling software thrown-in (I can't emphasize how superior this software is to most low end scanner packages) but it is the machine EZ Color was written to work with... so it's the most tested and compatable choice. >3.

Won't swear that this will work perfectly with scanner-generated RGB profiles, and EZ Color offers no way to adjust profiles, at least not yet... C.
