features: Epson does a good job of sharing the same TWAIN driver among many scanner models, so their TWAIN support is highly consistent. They also do a good job of supporting automatic scanning, including control of the scan resolution, pixel type, and scan region. These factors make Epson our recommended brand for flatbed scanners, barring special requirements.

The 1660 exposes different scanning parameters through TWAIN than it presents in its user interface, somewhat limiting its desirability for automated scanning. The Perfection 1660 has the quickest 'seek' we've seen, for moving to and scanning a small area on the scan bed.
