Plustek A320E Reviews

Perfect tool

Everything about this order is 5 stars. First it was delivered free with express service the next day- 5-star shopping experience! Second, the care used when packing and the small extras like doubling the edge of the tape for easy removing etc., is outstanding- thank you people behind the manufacturing! Also, because I use Mac,, (the CDs are for Windows only) it was so easy to download the installers and drivers from Plustek website- 5-minutes work! And last, but MOST important- this device is a beast of a scanner- wow! The lid allows thick objects, like canvas or it can be easily removed. Also the Options window offers so many settings that is in my interest to study them all, I guess somewhere I could find a option for baking a cake, just joking, but it is really really friendly device! This is my first purchase from B&H, it is everything I was looking for and more. Becoming loyal B&H customer for all my future needs!

exactly what I needed.

I want to scan my 50-ish photo albums and convert the digital images to books. This will not only save space but will allow me to share them with family members so they needn't be at my home to seem the pictures. I've scanned 5 years worth so far (about 8 albums) and am about to complete the first book. The albums took about 2 1/2 feet of shelf space, the resulting book will take about 1 1/2. AND anyone looking at it doesn't have to worry about pictures falling out etc. I just love it! I'm still learning about all the features of the scanner, so for now only giving it 4 stars as it wasn't cheap!

Easy to install & exactly what I need. The B&H salesperson we spoke to over the phone to help us decide what to purchase could not have been more helpful. The scanner arrived in less than 24 hours (after a holiday weekend) with no shipping charge. Happy customer here!

Old School Scanner

By John
Rated 4 out of 5

This scanner is perfect for those large documents. I am currently using it to scan family photo albums full of B&W prints and some color images. The results are surprisingly good when scanned at only 300DPI. I have tried scanning at 600DPI and see even better results, but to scan all documents at this resolution, the file sizes get too large and the resolution is not necessary. It is nice to know that it is available for future projects. I say old school as the only way to connect the scanner to the computer is through a USB cable. WIFI or BT would be nice and allow for unlimited placements.

Works great for scrapping with a caveat...

Works as expected for large sized line art as long as you use .jpeg or .pdf. I didn't have any luck getting .tiff's. The one's that finished were horribly discolored, but mostly the scanner software got hung. As such, I would not recommend this scanner for scanning photographs and such. The OCR function worked beautifully as well.

Love at first sight!

I've only used the scanner a few times, so I cannot testify to how durable it is. But from what I've seen, it's absolutely perfect for digitalizing 12x12 scrapbook pages! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to archive their 2-D craft work.

Love it!

Came packaged safely, great scanner, workable software, nice scan area, and lid can come off for scanning bigger things, usb must be direct to computer though. I tried a thunderbolt adapter and it wouldn't recognize, so make sure you have an available direct USB port to your computer.

I'd love to scan record covers with this, which are generally right at 12"x12". Other scanners I've used don't scan right up the edge of the glass. If I placed a 12" wide item in here, will I get all 12 inches scanned?
Asked by: Dru
Standard record albums are 12 3/8 x 12 3/8", so at least one edge of an album scanned on the 12x17" Plustek Opticpro A320E Flatbed Scanner will be cut off.
