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.
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 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.
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.
