Summary: Here are the "good" and "bad" on this scanner. . . ADVANTAGES . 1. The wide-format graphic arts scanner is a dying breed. There are very few choices. Given what is available, the Epson is the "only game in town." All other competing brands have issues. . . . a.
Summary: Great workhorse, hi-res large-format scanner, but mine started showing subtle streaks after nine months of use. It could be dirt getting inside the scanner, but it's completely sealed so I'm not sure how that would happen. Epson tech support had me reset some things, but that made no difference.
Summary: Forward: I wrote this review when I was in the middle of a large scan job, and literally the moment I posted it, I started having problems with the scanner.

Summary: This scanner is awesome. It is spendy but considering that it is a wide format, I really dont think you could find anything better than this. The only problem is that the glass scratches easily so make sure you are extra careful when using it.
Summary: I've used a 1640XL for years. It is having problems and I decided to upgrade to the 10000XL. I found 2 main problems with this scanner. The first has to do with the quality of the scan. The 10000XL introduces some darkening that is apparent in the white areas of the scanned image.
Summary: Very fast, reliable scanner for our office...as it should be for $2k. Co-worker who scanned photos and negs for a living said it was very quick and quite for it's size and resolution. Would buy again if need to. Fire-wire a big plus.
