And the photos show an i3000 series scanner.

I have tried to optimize my scanners to the task.

35 mm negs and slides Nikon Coolscan LS5000 -
     about 50,000 images (the slide feeder makes this work)
all other negs/slides/prints Epson V700
     about 8,500 images (including some 35 mm slides)
Paper documents Xerox DocuMate 3115 duplex sheet feed scanner
     over 10,000 page impressions
B-size Brother MFC-6510DW multifunction
     probably about 500 page impressions, maybe more.
