We use the Epson Expression 1600 with trans adapter. It's USB if I were doing it again I would probably toss for the fire wire version. It has batch scanning so we can put in 24 slides, set up the crops and so forth then just hit scan all and go for lunch while the scans are being made. The resolution is 1600 by 3200 and so far it has been very good. We did have to open it up and blow out dust once or twice, we were getting some lines on our scans.

Perhaps the Epson 2450?

I've boxes (100s) of 8x10 b&w photos from my ten year stint as a news photog. Plus a ton of color slides. All of these mostly from the 1980s. > > I've been putting these into this G4 Mac via that 'crummy' scanner > and the PrimeFilm 1800i film scanner.
