If you just want a decent scanner, just make sure you find one that has a table size to fit your largest prints and can be adjusted to scan at a higher DPI (dots per inch).

Stay away from most printer/scanner combos, since they rarely allow you to scan in at a higher resolution that the size of the print.

Personally I use an Epson 750 Pro, but that's because I'm a professional photographer so I need it for work. One of the biggest advantages to it is that it can do negatives and slides from just about any camera ever made. It's about $600 to $900 depending on where you buy it from, but as a photographer, I know the negatives are what you should be scanning not the prints.

If you are lucky enough to have all the negatives as well and they are 35mm film. look into buying a negative scanner (costco has one for about $70) you won't regret it. The quality is night and day.
