Jackie, Both those scanners are okay but between the two of them, you should choose the 1650 if you can not find the 1660. Did you try the Epson site itself? For a while, a short time ago, they had the Epson Perfection 1660 scanners for $65 again but don't know whether or not they still do. Good luck.

I found Epson perfection 1650 and Epson Perfection 1670. Each is $69, refurbished. Are those okay substitutes for the Epson 1660? Nobody mentioned the work Perfection, and these are photo scanners, so I wasn't sure. Please help. . .- Jackie McCraw .
