I also have an ancient Nikon LS20.
I found the Nikon somewhat lacking in handling dark areas.
The Epson produces a much better scan using the Epson software, however the images appear slightly soft.
I am scanning at the largest resolution 3000x 2000 not looking for absolute perfection, so I am saving in jpg format.
What is the optimum DPI setting I should use for normal screen display? I have the option of 96 up to 2400.
I have tried various numbers, but I cannot see any difference.
