Well now.
Do you mean photos or negatives?
I'd say any flatbed scanner will be ok for photos as I've had no complaints about any that I've had.
I also have a 35mm negative and slide scanner.
A Luminox LXDF1 which I am very happy with.
Think it was about £45 delivered
Hope that helps.
btw, I think either ALDI, LIDL or NETTO have/had one for sale.

photos,ideally looking for one which gives good results

Think the software you use is also important, as the free stuff that comes with most Epson scanners is rubbish. I use Vuescan, which supports a lot of makes.
