Not USB but I have a HP Photosmart 3200 All-in-One
printer/scanner/copier (also has a SD/CF/XD/MS slots and a USB slot) sat
on the desk beside me.  It attaches to the network. xsane works mostly
( occasionally gets it's knickers in a twist and tells you the scanner
is busy when it isn't ).
There is also a "usable for basic scanning" web interface and the front
panel lets you scan directly to a memory device or print from one
without a computer.
The memory device slots are exported as (netbios) SMB and therefore
accessible from linux.
Oh - and it has a slide adapter for the scanner , the printer works
and I am told it works under windows too.

Have fun,
