I'd go for something from Brother.  Ideally, networkable (rather than
needing to share via CUPS, etc.)

Last I looked, Brother can do this.  That being said, I'm using one of
their "MFC" series, and just scan PDFs to a network share (this does
mean, ofc that I lose out on OCR, but for what I scan, that's minor).

Good luck there.  Brother, HP, everyone that makes quality hardware has
a binary driver.

That's a bit on the small side, but you could probably find something.

Sounds like you might've missed a step then, since cups has been able to
share forever.
