Personally I tend to stick to companies that are senominous with various products e.g TV & DVD goods I buy Panasonic, cameras, Canon, Fuji, or Nikon, with scanners its a little harder. I have a Canon scanner tha i've had for more than 5years now, altough not used oftern it has been a good piece of kit. I've probably shot myself in my foot by saing that!!
If possible avoid "all in one soloutions" as if one feature breaks then its harder to replace and can make the hardware unuseable.
Hope that helps!
If all else fails, hit the reset button.
