Good for 5 years and then it became pretty useless as a large scanner.

Frank Schorr, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this scanner for a long time, but after a few years the scans started to come out with colored lines. I brought it in two or three times to an Epson specialty tech shop and they didn't do much to fix the problem. I wish you would be able to buy the parts for it and get it fixed. I've scanned probably more than most people do with this scanner, but now I can only use a small section of the bed because other parts come out with colored lights.

Epson Expression 1640XL Desktop Scanner

karlt9366, Ebay
6 April 2011
  • Summary: I needed a large format (11" x 17") scanner, but I wanted one with high resolution. This scanner had high resolution, proper large size, and was both USB and SCSI. Software was easy to get from Epson, and I was up and running in minutes. This scanner is quite versatile for both black and white and color scanning. File size is quite large, but that goes along with the high resolution.

Lousy software, Terrible support

Amazon
1 February 2001
  • Summary: I wasted no time returning this scanner. I have eventually settled on a Microtek 4600. The Epson is sleek appearing, lightweight, fast. But fast is no good when the results are unuseable. The Epson software doesn't permit you to preset what you want to scan and whether or not to push more light to it, or less.

Excellent Scanner for the price

John Roushkolb, Amazon

  • Summary: This scanner is an excellent purchase for an ad agency or design house looking to improve their color. Right out of the box, this scanner has excellent color reproduction, and the 3.6 DMax grabs excellent detail in the shadows. Our agency... has a client roster of many large agribusiness firms, and this scanner grabs onto individual hairs in even the blackest Black Angus cattle.

It gets the job done!

  • Summary: I think this is a fabulous scanner. I'm the curator for a photographic website ...and I've run over 4000 11"x14" photographs through mine with no problems. I use ULead's PhotoImpact 6 for image processing (TIF to JPG) - it's the only program that allows macros - when you're doing 4000 scans with several manual steps the macros are indispensible. I can't say I'm looking forward to scanning the next 4000 photos, but I sure know this scanner can do the job.

Schneller A3-Scanner für den Mac

jmv, Ciao
5 September 2002
  • Summary: Der Scanner läuft bei uns in der PR jetzt seit über einem Jahr relativ problemlos, er ist per SCSI-Interface an den Mac angeschlossen. Am Mac wird er er mit Adobe Photoshop 5 betrieben, dort ist das mitgelieferte Silverfast-Plugin eingebunden. Das Scannen geht flott und die Qualität ist wirklich nicht schlecht, bei der Entrasterung gibt es ab und zu nicht so berauschende Ergebnisse. Der Silverfast-Treiber für den PC scheint dagegen nicht so perekte Ergebnisse zu liefern.
  • Pros: Sehr flott und zuverlässig
  • Cons: Mitgelieferte Software nicht besonders brauchbar

Grandios Epson Expression 1640XL

Jean_Luc_Picard, Dooyoo
15 August 2001
  • Excerpt: Als erstes muß ich sagen das die Anschaffung dieses Scanner nur auf über meinen Wiederstand gemacht worden ist. Allerdings zu unrecht habe ich behauptet das dieser Scanner sein Geld nicht wert sei. Wie gesagt zu Unrecht. In Punkto Geschwindigkeit (an der SCSI-Schnittstelle) ist dieser A3-Scanner unübertroffen, und dabei liefert er auch noch extrem Scharfe Bilder. Über normale Graustufen bis hin zum High Color Scanning - alles ist mögllich mit diesem Gerät.
  • Pros: Schnell, Leise, Unkomplizierte Software
  • Cons: Keine Gefunden

Schnell und schlampig.

  • Summary: Nach langem hin und her hatten wir uns entschieden einen Epson Epression 1640XL anzuschaffen, da wir schon im Besitz eines Epression 1600(A4) sind und deshalb die Geschwindigkeit der Epson Scanner schätzen. Der Scanner kostete zusammen mit der Durchlichteinheit und der Firewire-Schnittstelle ca. 8000 DM.
  • Pros: Schnell
  • Cons: keine halbwegs exakten Scans möglich
