James Schultz from TX – USA, is a part-time artist who has always loved drawing, and also works as an engineer for NASA. Purchased scanner for scanning realistic graphite pencil drawings. The scanner does a great job and the software is great for managing contrast, resolution, light, etc. The price of the scanner was reasonable for a CCD technology scanner which is required for scanning artwork.
This scanner is FAST. The colors are nearly spot on, with true gray grays, no lavender cast to chase. 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.

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.
Plustek offers a total solution from hardware to software specifically customized for library sector to ensure a flawless work process and make digitizing reading materials easier than ever.
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.
