I haven't seen any report yet.

There has been some discusiion about that topic and the ChangeLog of
our development version reads:

2003-10-07  Oliver Schwartz <Oliver.Schwartz@gmx.de>
	    * backend/snapscan.h backend/snapscan-scsi.c
	      Updates for Epson Perfection 1670

2003-10-07  Oliver Schwartz <Oliver.Schwartz@gmx.de>
	    * backend/snapscan.h backend/snapscan.c backend/snapscan-option.c
	      Initial support for Epson Perfection 1670, minor bugfix

So I propose you get a development snapshot from
http://www.sane-project.org/snapshots/ and try. It may be necessary to
set up things manually. I haven't checked that.

Oliver: Does the scanner already work? If yes, can you add an entry
for that scanner to the snapscan.desc file?

I'm getting quite some questions about that scanner since some days.
