If you've the budget , I'd just wait for the Plustek to be available again .

As mentioned on your other thread about flatbed scanner availability , with the pandemic manufacturing and distribution had taken a hit .

i think that and scanning all the old slides and negatives has become a good project for when people are locked in at home, so there’s been a rush on what is available   I’ve just seen a Plustek 8200 priced at nearly £600 on Amazon, normally they’re around £300

If a flatbed good enough , get one of them . ( I use an old Epson for my 120 and 5x4 scanning ) .

If you "must" have it now and can't find new , get second hand .

Just make sure all the bits are with it .

With the lack of supply , prices used have no doubt gone up .

So either make do with what you can get and pay the price , or wait until things return to normal and take your pick and shop around .
