Scanner recommendations please

Like most families we've got half a cupboard of old photo albums.
I made a start last year of scanning some but I found it a very slow process, I was using an oldish Canon printer that incorporated a scanner. This was clunky and took about four minutes a photo.

I then got a used scanner but it gave very grainy results.

I've concluded it may be a lot more efficient to buy a new scanner, I've had a look at some online but get overwhelmed by the tech speak.

All I want is something that does decent scans of photos in a reasonable time, I don't need loads of fancy editing software that wouldn't get used.

Is there anyone with knowledge of such things who can point me in the right direction?

At work, we gave up using scanners at work because we never got good results. Now we use a digital SLR and an overhead tripod [so the camera points straight down].
