This scanner is FAST. The colors are nearly spot on, with true gray grays. Depth of field is great. Scanner is about half the weight of similar scanners. Only had it a few days, but have not found any troubles with it yet.
I use on a Mac. I’m a professional illustrator, and use it to scan in my drawings and watercolour paintings. I couldn’t afford to by a big name brand A3 scanner, so opted for this Plustek one as a budget version and it fits my needs perfectly.
The scan quality is great, the colours look exactly as they should be (colour tends to be off on most scanners I’ve used, this one picks it up perfectly)! It scans really quickly too, takes just a bit longer for anything 1200 dpi+.
I am using this scanner to scan 12×12 traditional scrapbook pages to recreate digital/printed copies. I used the highest resolution setting and the quality is incredible. I’m looking forward to using this scanner for many years to come for a lot of different projects.
It took me quite a while to find a Large Format Flatbed Scanner! That is, until I bought the OpticPro A320! You won’t be disappointed! It does everything you’ll want in a large flatbed scanner. Large 12″x 18″ scans, and it does have 1600 dpi hardware based capabilities!
I purchased this scanner to be able to convert my 12 inch x 12 inch scrapbooks into digital files. It is perfectly suited to the task. I researched scanners for this purpose, and most that will accommodate that size original are much more expensive. The quality of the scans is excellent.
I have been searching for a high end scanner for maybe 5 years or more as I am a historian & genealogist who scan antiquarian books & maps for my website and every one I tried was just not worth getting again. Then I thought one day I had never searched Amazon and when I searched for this up popped this AWESOME scanner.
