I've got an Epson Perfection 1260 which works fine with NetBSD and SANE.
But I don't think that this modell is still sold.
The best reference is the web site of the SANE project:
Any USB scanner listed as working there should work under NetBSD.
I had however to add the USB device ids of my Perfection 1260 to the list
of devices accepted by uscanner(4) to make it work. But that was a trivial
Somebody claimed on this list month ago that you don't need the uscanner(4)
driver at all to use a USB scanner with NetBSD. Unfortunately he never
provided an example configuration.
