We're comparing a low end product to a mid line one here... the Perfection 1200 was the highest rez scanner Epson offered last week, but it is listed as a business scanner, not a graphics arts scanner. Specificly the added dynamic range of the 1600 (3.3 to 3.0) will make a huge difference for chromes, the Zenon instead of cold cathode lamp, and some difficult to define features of the head design and CCD technology will make a quality difference.
