The new EPSON Perfection 1670 is not and will not be supported by the 
EPSON backend.
It's design seems to be similar to the Perfection 1260, which is 
supported by the Plustek
backend. I have not seen this new scanner, so I don't know if it really 
falls into the same
category as the Perfection 1670.

The /proc/bus/usb/devices output  looks similar (at least it has an 
interrupt endpoint):

E:  Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=   2 Ivl=256ms
T:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=05 Cnt=01 Dev#=  2 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=04b8 ProdID=011f Rev= 1.07
S:  Manufacturer=EPSON
S:  Product=EPSON Scanner
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr=100mA
I:  If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=usbscanner
E:  Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=83(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=   8 Ivl=4096ms

I already know of one unlucky customer who thought because the model 
was similar than the 1660, it would work the same way.
