Plustek OpticPro A320

 

A price of $600 isn't usually considered low for a scanner, but the Plustek OpticPro A320 isn't like most other scanners. Scanners are typically limited to letter- or legal-size scans, because moving up to tabloid (11-by-17-inch) or super-tabloid size...

Super-tabloid size (12-by-17-inch) flatbed. Low cost. Fast. Seven one-touch buttons

Doesn't batch-scan—that is, scan multiple photos at once, putting each in a separate file. No scratch removal or color restore

The Plustek OpticPro A320 delivers super-tabloid size (12-by-17-inch) scans, with a feature set more suited to office use than to scanning photos.

If you have not heard of the Plustek brand, perhaps it is because Plustek began in the 1980s as an original equipment manufacturer for companies that attached their own brand names to the products that Plustek manufactured for them. It is an...

The Plustek OpticPro A320 includes technical support for the life of the product

Scan density is far better than necessary, but not best in class

This large format scanner is one of the two best products in our review.

Excellent Value

 

I purchased this item a few days ago and it's an excellent value. Windows 7 users may encounter some hassle with the software that was included as it is not supported. I ended up getting a Vista version disc. My research into this company took me into...

There was a very long delay in shipping this item. It seemed that it was released for sale but there weren''t hardly any available in the US

It is a relatively inexpensive 11 x 17 color scanner. Earlier models worked well

The first one I bought broke after about a week of use. Plustek was helpful about replacing it. But it was unavailable for 2-3 weeks white lthey were replacing it. Also the software shipped with it didn''t work and I had to download the drivers from...

Dirt simple to set up, fairly fast operation and warm up. Nice appearance, fits snug to the wall.

Marvelous machine, included software somewhat clunky, but the scans make up for it.

Cost, chintzy software.

Consumer review by:

Pretty Good

 

The scanner gets the job done! It's a very good size, and the programmable buttons are very convenient. The software is a little annoying though, and the mac driver isn't up to date.

Home users looking for a scanner for occasional use will find plenty of choice in the AIO and portable scanner market these days, but those who would look towards more professional application, or to scan larger ...

Plustek may struggle to find a clear market with the A320, which is a bit of a mixed bag in terms of its performance and appeal in most of the key areas. There's no doubt that this large-scale OpticPro can certainly do a job, but only if the speed and...
