They are phased out - but don't take the successor 1250 without
looking at the sane-pages for details!

I'm using the 1650photo (with transparency unit) and am quite happy
with it. Not that cheap, though, at $250. $200 without the tpu.

I suggest to look at the sane-pages first http://www.mostang.com/sane/
to find a good supported scanner for linux.
