Epson has launched six new scanners in its line of Perfection flatbeds. Included in the lineup are three Perfection 1640SU models, each with 42-bit color and 1,600 x 3,200 DPI hardware resolutions. They start at $299.

There are three configurations in the 1640SU line:

  • The Perfection 1640SU Offices adds a 30-page, 5.5 PPM automatic document feeder. It will also be available this month for $499.

The new lineup also includes two scanners falling under the 1240U banner. They also offer 42-bit color, but with resolutions of 1,200 x 2,400 DPI. These include:
