Recommended cheap SCSI scanners?

I'm looking for a cheap SCSI scanner for use with Linux, hopefully one
which costs less than about 120 UK pounds. I don't know what that
would be in other currencies, but if it's any help for comparison,
here are a couple of the models I've been looking at:

Mustek 1200SP Pro SCSI 70 pounds
Acer 620S 105 pounds

I'm particularly curious about the Mustek 1200SP, since I can't find
any mention of it on Mustek's website, or anywhere else for that
matter, and so I have no idea what resolutions it can do, colour
depth, etc. Could anyone tell me this info, please, and perhaps make
some sort of recommendation as to which scanner I should actually buy?
Are either of the above any good?
