Can't believe the bargain!

 

I have owned a $600 SCSI scanner for several years and thought it was too good to replace. A year ago I did replace it with a Canon scanner, which immediately broke and I received zero service and support from Canon (the broken, and expensive, scanner...

Semi-pro scanner under $400!!!

 

It all started out innocently enough - I was off to the computer shop with a friend to buy a CD burner and somehow came home with a scanner! For some years now, I'd sought an affordable and convenient way to scan my 120 and 4x5 inch transparencies and...

So simple to use, but so flexible for the serious user...

Gets pretty hot at times, not ideal for 35mm scans.

Just what I've been waiting for.

 

I hate to buy anything related to computers or new technology... ever since I paid $2,000 for a Sperry luggable with dual floppy drives, 512K RAM, and ran at 4.7 MHZ (I think).

Fast, incredibly versatile, very automatic mode or completely manual mode. Very wide range of resolutions.

Comes with complicated imaging editing software that isn't necessarily compatible with std. computer packages.

Excellect scanner for the price

 

I've been using this scanner for more than half year. Overall, it's a scanner that can give you very good results for the price you pay.

TWAIN software/driver not so perfect

Product Specifications

The Perfection 1640SU series scanners are ideal for knowledgeable home and small/medium business users who demand high quality with rapid speed and maximum efficiency. The Perfection 1640SU series can capture maximum image detail. The 42-bit color depth ensures even the subtlest color changes are recognized. The high input and output color-resolution imaging shows crystal-clear and natural-looking results. You will be pleasantly surprised that this value-added sophistication also comes with high scanning speed and the amazing one-touch operating feature of Epson Smart Panel interface. Connectivity is simple with the in-built USB and SCSI interfaces, giving the choice of a simple Plug and Play solution, or the high-speed advantages offered by a SCSI connection. An on-board ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) handles image data processing, assuring virtually instantaneous image display. It also reduces the load on your computer, allowing it to perform other tasks while data-intensive high-resolution scanning is in progress. On low-resolution scans, Epson's on-demand pixel optimization technology combines image data from adjoining pixels to boost data-processing efficiency and scanning throughput.
