Flatbed scanner or AIO Printer for better Photo results

Specs: Windows 7, Core2Duo
I want to archive some old family photos and I have 'heard' that using a flatbed scanner instead of an AIO printer will get me better results...meaning better color accuracy. I have found nothing definitive from my searches so far so I have come here, as usual, for real-world answers. All replies and opinions are greatly respected and appreciated.

An AIO printer is just a printer with a built in flat bed scanner. No difference.

Hi Rocco,

I was recently advised by a professional in such matters, that inexpensive home use dedicated scanners are available for precisely the conversion task you have.

This included 35mm slides etc.

He advised scanning takes time, but the results are good.

If friends use, they could contribute to the scanner cost.

Please advise back what you decide.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Thanks so much for the reply. What you say makes perfect sense. I will now research a good flatbed scanner. Any suggestions?
