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: I had a canon 8400 and the power supply died. This one was one up newer model. It arrived well packaged and operates exactly as my old one. It has more resolution and functions very well for me. I scan mostly black and white copy, but when I scan a photo the output from it is superb.
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 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.
Summary: I bought this to scan 35 mm slides. Period. Opened it up, set it up, followed the instructions. Didn't work with slides. Tried it on two more computers. Still didn't work with slides. Studied and re-studied documentation (real men don't ask for directions).
