I would love to get my hands on a 1660, even a refurbished one. Freedom Scientific's web site clocks the 1660 at about 13 seconds a page, while the Epson 1250 I'm using right now comes in at about 47 seconds. I've even gotten to the point where I have considered finding a SCSI card for my system in order to hook up my HP 4P again. I have to say though, that I'm a big fan of USB, and even though the 4P was a work horse, I'm not too interested in hooking it up to my new system, although it did do legal sized documents. Of the scanners tested with Openbook, the Epson 1660 came in the second fastest, only being surpassed by the Canon DR-5020, which comes in at 2.3 seconds a page. Somehow, I imagine the Canon might be on the pricey side.

I, too, use Epson. My home scanner is a 2400 model while my work scanner is a 1660. Both are great and I do not think I would return to an HP Scanner.
