All-in-One's V. Standalone Scanners

I've been wondering about the scanner component of these All-in-Ones and have used a few and it seems OK.  I am looking to replace my printer and really need something that will make copies and scan.  Comparing AIO scanning to standalone scanners in terms of resolution is daunting.  If I am looking for good quality scans, sharpness of image and accuracy of colors, should I just purchase a single function printer, buy a scanner and also use it as a copier or do the AIO's meet the task?  Recommendations for a good Standalone scanner would be appreciated.  My scanning tasks would consist of photos and documents and not huge volumes so an ADF is not a show-stopper.

Thanks

Today's all-in-ones have come a long way from just a few years ago.  Read through my comments at the post below.  Basically if you need both a scanner and a printer, I'd recommend going with a good AIO.  Below link also has comments on the AIO's we currently have, and a link to HP's Help Me Choose tool.  Let me know if you need any further clarification:
