Before I discovered this scanner, I also ruled out the Contex HD iFlex and the Widetek 25-600. Both of these scanners proved unsuitable for different reasons. The Contex simply didn't work and the Widetek had a recessed glass that prevented acceptable stitching of oversized images.
The Plustek Optipro A320 will cost you less than $500. Epson's 11000XL runs $2,000 or more and both the Contex and Widetek scanners run around $10,000 each.
The A320's scanning quality is excellent. The A320 is also light weight and easy to move around. Finally, it is easy to reach someone at Plustek and they go out of their way to be helpful.
I do fine are reproduction for a living. I have done it for years and I was afraid that I would have to move to a digital camera when my Epson 1640XL finally died. For a host of reasons I did not want to move to a digital camera. Now I don't have to.
Finding this scanner was a Godsend. I was hesitant to try it because the price was so low compared to all the others, but desperation caused me to try it as a last resort. I will never make that mistake again. The proof is in the image quality, not the scanner price.Read more ›
In terms of scan quality, the surface area is large, but the resolution is not very good. Colors and edges become highly pixelated. So, this is actually not a good scanner for any kind of graphics professional. I bought this scanner for a special project and ended up just using my old scanner. Now I'm stuck with this one and will end up trying to sell it for a loss. Even at a discount, this scanner is not a good deal.
Update: The scanner was still under warranty. About to return for repair. So far the customer service bests ANYBODY I've dealt with for a while.
And by the way... I'm running OS X 10.8. Scanner Utility works.

Turns off after several scans and it would not turn on again . You have to wait 10 minutes before powering it back on. It was a waste of my time.

Good scanner but not for scanning original paintings on canvas. At least not yet. It scans normal things, documents etc very very well. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Michael W. Sheeler
