Epson Expression 1640XL

 

This has been a terrific scanner. SCSI or USB. A3 with reasonably high optical resolution and very high interpolated resolution. Not overly fast but otherwise fully featured and capable. Mine has the Auto Document Feeder option. Absolutely no problems...

Absolutely reliable, broadly featured, high quality scanner doing high quality scans
