[PLUG] inexpensive network scanner or MFP?

Not directly related to Linux, but more of a general network question...

I'm looking for an inexpensive (less than $300) MFP for home network 
use.  Right now I have a Lexmark X215.  It has the multi-page scanner, 
but it only works when attached directly to a Windows PC via USB.  Even 
then, you have to scan each page into Adobe Acrobat individually.  What 

I have it on a Hawking print server so it can be used as a network 
printer so it's only a printer, copier and fax machine now.  I don't 
want to keep a PC on full time for it.

What I would like is something that connects via ethernet.  Ideally, a 
MFP N&W laser printer with b&w / color scanning to PDF.  It should be 
able to put those PDF's on a network share (Windows or Samba) or an FTP 
site or just e-mail them.  If it only did one of those, I would be 
happy.  I don't care if it faxes or not.  I would also consider just a 
scanner that plugs into a network with similar functions.

What does everybody else use for their scanning or a network MFP?  
Anybody in a similar situation?
