Not recommendations for a specific scanner, but check against the sane list. I have also heard that HP printers and scanners generally work well with LINUX
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I see that some time has elapsed since your post and I don't know what type of scanner you may need but I have an HP MFC 3050 which scans quite well under Ubuntu and Mint. I believe I paid about $250 US for it. But if you are looking for a flatbed it is a sheet-fed scanner. I should add that it is USB only.

Best wishes on your search.
