Bought this for $10 at my local thrift store in perfect condition

Summary: This is a superb scanner! For it's age, it holds its premium qualities very well. Unfortunately, Canon no longer update the drivers for this scanner, so any newer versions of Windows that succeeds Windows 7 32bit WILL NOT support this scanner.
Summary: Having chosen the Canoscan 8000F and the Epson 2400 as my short list, I finally selected the Canon. Why? In the shop (Australia) both machines were on display - the Epson seemed very flimsy compared to the Canon - the lid of the Epson came away in my hand! I have a flat-screen iMac.
