I'm using the Epson Scan plugin for Photoshop now, but it makes Photoshop crash about one time in five. It also means a lot of clicking (defaults to saving as PSD instead of JPEG every time; makes me type each file name instead of it just incrementing a number).
The standalone Epson Scan program crashes at startup.
Apple's Image Capture program makes me manually select the crop region every time, plus pick the file name. And it doesn't do dust removal, and seems to scan too light.
