Thrilled so far with this affordable large-format scanner. I paint watercolor designs (mostly botanical and with detailed shading and colors) as well as illustrate with markers in black/white as well as colored markers (like Copic for manga and other types of illustrations). I needed to find a scanner large enough to scan my 12″x12″ paintings and illustrations. I decided I had to give this scanner a try because it is the only one I can possibly afford.
This PLUSTEK OpticPro A320 scanner is a great value. The speed that it scans is a pleasant surprise; and the fact that it has such a large scanning area is terrific! The quality is superb; and I was hesitant at first. But I am glad I bought the product; and it is a great value.
I bought this to scan ancient family photos, many of which tend to be too large to fit A4 scanners. It installed easily on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I’m impressed by the quality, and the depth of field; several photos are behind 3mm of glass which I don’t want to disturb, and these scan very well.
