OpticPro A320 ****A SUPER VALUE

  • Excerpt: I love this scanner. Set up was easy and fast. The scanning software is easy to navigate and gives you tons of options. My only disappointment was the description stated it was MAC compatible (somewhat). AS I didn't quite understand that description I called B&H customer service and I was assured it was MAC compatible. Turns out it's not! If you have a MAC Don't order this without contacting Plustek first to double check the compatible operating systems.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality

Great results, once I finally figured it out!

  • Summary: I wanted a scanner that would scan 12 x 12 scrapbooking pages. And this scanner does it very well. I can put the entire page on the glass, and everything is captured in the scan except about 3/16 inch on the outside edges. But that was expected, based on what I had read. Biggest issue I had was figuring out HOW to go about the actual scanning and saving the image. The instructions assume you have and know how to use TWAIN software.

I'm pleased so far

  • Summary: I got this scanner to replace my Epson V700. (The Epson leaves shadows in grayscale and clips edges. Its lid fits badly and admits light. I couldn't get a true white in either color or grayscale even after much tinkering. And I needed a larger format.) I've been playing with the Plustek OpticPro A320 for a couple of hours, testing and calibrating.

Reasonable Large Format Scanner

  • Excerpt: This is a good scanner and fast. It installed easily by following the included instructions but that's where the easy part ended. Although there was lots of software included there were no instructions on what did what or how to do anything such as scan a tabloid format document and create a pdf file which was my objective. It was all trial and error with lots of error.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Poor Software

  • Summary: 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.

  • Excerpt: I am digitizing the original 11 x 17 board masters of my grphic novel pages. The artwork is finely detailed. One board in particular is probably over 80 years old; i found it stuff in a home over a hundred years old wherein once I resided. The OpticPro A320 even picked up pleasing details in the texture. Again, I was expecting to have to pay much more for such quality.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible

Satisfactory large format scanner

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a scanner that could scan tabloid size newspaper. This was the one I could afford and it does a satisfactory optical job. It is also the only Plustek scanner that offers a Mac OS driver. The interface is clunky and there is no documentation if you are a Mac user. It takes 26 seconds to scan a 10x14 page. My current project calls for scanning more than 1200 newspaper pages so faster wouldn't hurt but it's acceptable.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Nicely designed lid
  • Cons: No documentation for Mac, Not fast but okay, Poor Software

Great scanner for the price

  • Excerpt: We do a lot of black& white scans of landscape drawings--have been sending larger ones out, so this A3 size scanner is saving us a lot of time/money since we can do it in-house. Images much sharper than our tired old Epson, which has given up the ghost after years of abuse...push buttons on top great for our less technical staff too.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Resolution
