http://www.sane-project.org says it has "good" support for the 1670.

There's an entry for the printer in /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/uscanner.c (FreeBSD 4.10), so FreeBSD should detect it as a "uscanner" device. (Assuming you'll be using USB; can't say how other interfaces work.)

Based on my experience with the Epson Perfection 1640SU (works fine), this would be the way I'd look. Epson is better about assisting the open-source community than many other manufacturers.

It may be possible to get the Expression 1680 to work, because SANE says it has "complete" support for it.

There's no entry for the scanner in uscanner.c, but adding entries isn't difficult; usbdevs -v will tell you the ID numbers. It's not a guarantee that it would work, though.
