Query: advice re large format scanner

Historic Takoma is considering the purchase of a large format scanner. I would appreciate any advice from those with experience using such scanners.  The choices seem to be home-quality ones for $200 or professiona-quality for $1000-2000+    Any suggestions? Epson?  Plustek (esp book scanner)?

We will be scanning mostly tabloid newsletters, posters, and some books.  Or should I skip the scanner and just out-source everything.  Pros and cons.

We are willing to spend the $2000 if it is worth it.
