Summary: I have had Canon scaners since I first started scaning years ago. I have just upgraded when I felt the new models were more advance and I could use the extra speed or other features. Right now this sutes me fine.
Summary: So versatile. I used this gem to scan in family negatives, slides, pictures, and newspaper clippings/documents for safekeeping and access online and to computer. This is just what I needed. Great machine.
Summary: I have a number of older pictures that I have tried to scan with various scanners and they never seemed to come out right. This scanner produced excellent quality scans and the software that came with it was very easy to use and helpful.
Summary: I bought it to scan negatives. It is a bit slow when it does this, I guess it's to be expected. Performs wonderfully on normal scans. Only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 is the drivers load in memory every time operating system boots.
Summary: I looked at a number of scanning devices, and features offered by the CanoScan appealed to me. I had never used a scanner, but I wanted to put some slides on disks, and I found that a number I had taken some 40 years ago had faded and turned pink.
