Is BenQ DW1620 a good scanner?

Looking through the forums for a good scanner drive, it seemed many people recommended the BenQ DW1640. It’s not easy to find used. However while searching for it I stumbled upon a new DW1620 locally. Is it is any good? If it’s (almost) as good as the DW1640 I might go for it!

Thanks!

Yes, the DW1620 is a good scanner. The DW1640 does better with certain MIDs, but overall the DW1620 is quite good. BTW, you can still find DW1640 rebadges (as well as DW1620 and other Nexperia-based BenQ clones) on eBay. More information on what to look for here.
