Summary: You can still get this scanner new at eBay or at some camera places. I got it solely because I wanted a film scanner, but could not afford a "real" one. Flatbed scanners are considered inferior for such things. Well, if this scanner is making inferior scans of negatives or slides, I can't tell!
Summary: I was able to set up the scanner with no difficulty on my 2.4GHz/512MB P4 system. It took about 20 minutes I guess to install the software and plug in the scanner. I have used the scanner primarily for photos. The multi-scan mode is GREAT.
Summary: Ordered on a Tuesday, received it on Friday! NewEgg Free Shipping Rules! This scanner is a huge step up from my old parallel port scanner. Very accurate color reproduction from the original. The slide adapter is neat, and it really did a great job on some color slides.
Summary: The Canon 5000F scanner provides high quality scans at a reasonable price. Being a professional photographer and newspaper cartoonist for 15 years, I've worked with numerous scanner models ranging from HP and Epson to even Microtek units.
Summary: Wow. What a deal. $115.00 total price (12/29/03) delivered in 3 days. The Canon CanoScan 5000F is loaded with features and performs flawlessly. Excellent quality from documents, photos and negatives. A nice compliment of software is also included. PCWORLD initially turned me on to this scanner.
Summary: I usually read these testomonials with a grain of salt but this experience was great!. The price was right and delivered by Fed Ex in 4 days during Christmas. And, the machine does exactly what I wanted - to copy some 30 year old slides before they got thrown out or lost - with no complications but...
Summary: I have had this canon 5000 scanner for a couple weeks and it has been great. Much faster than any scanner I have used and the negative adapter is awesome. I highly reccommend the 5000 over any scanner in this price range...

Summary: I agree with reviewer number one, PCworlds review was right on. It's one of the best scanners I've seen for the money. The quailty rich scans are great. I copied a photo from a friends ultrasound and the scanned image looked better than the paper copy that I scanned.
Summary: PCWorld rated this as the number 1 scanner. I just installed it and I agree, it is great. Easy to install on Windows XP. What it does when it scans a photo color slide is fantastic, the scanned image beats anything that an expensive digital camera can do. WOW, just buy it, it is great.
