Pan Digital Photo Scanner any good?

My mom is looking for a way to digitize our old family photos. She saw a Pandigital Photo Scanner for $99. Anyone know anything about this and if it's good?

April, just get a regular flatbed scanner. An Epson, Canon, HP, or Visioneer will be fine for scanning prints. I use an old $30 Visioneer flatbed. Nothing at all fancy. You just need a 300 dpi scanner. (Almost everything on the market is 1200 dpi or more). Make sure it has good software. All of the above does, though I personally don't care for the HP software.
