I have been using Xsane and Sane with the EPKOWA backend for a long time now. 
I have the Epson 1650 Photo scanner. I do not have any Epson printers though. 
All HP printers.

Note - I also use vuescan - it is better for batch scanning 35mm negatives and 
slides. I don't know what the price is now, but I got it a few years back for 
$40.00. The license is a lifetime license and free upgrades from the vuescan 
web site.

Paraphrasing Ben Franklin:

Those who sacrifice freedom for safety, have neither.

The exact quote:

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little
temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

  US author, diplomat, inventor, physicist, politician, & printer
  Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
