If you expect the EZ buttons on the front of the unit to work, you will be sorely disappointed...

Summary: I am not a fan of this scanner, and have sent it back. The 'EZ' buttons on it refuse to program properly, as evidenced by vast amounts of similar complaints. After wasting a weekend of free time researching the problem and trying to get it to work, I gave up, sent it back, and bought an Epson.
Navigator EX software does not work in Mac Yosemite
5 March 2015
Summary: The MP Navigator EX software that is supposed to work with this CanoScan 9000F MarkII in Mac Yosemite refuses to do so, Instead, I only get a "Cannot communicate with scanner,' no matter which version of the drivers or scan software I use.
Summary: I've had it for about 3 weeks and was liking it in spite of the lack of editing software and a few minor glitches that I could live with. Then I discovered a glitch that I couldn't live with. I routinely scan documents and save them as JPGs so I can adjust the documents when necessary.
Summary: I was trying to replace a CanoSvan 9900F because drivers for Windows 7 were lacking. I had hoped that the CanoScan 9000 Mark II would be a worthy successor. It is not. I don't know it is a limitation in ScanGear, the software used by PhotoShop to communicate with the scanner, but it does not seem...
Summary: I bought the old version of this scanner and was quite impressed with the output - both photo and film. The only issue I faced was the time it takes to scan films. Nevertheless, I went on scanning my photos... when I read a review of somebody saying, "Don't buy this... wait for the MKII version".
Terrible software - not for professional use without a lot of patience and cursing
15 September 2012
Summary: Software is terrible. Total nightmare. Seriously. It appends not only the scanning date, but also a sequence number to your file name. Example: _20131215_0001 will be added to EVERY file or photo that you scan on Dec 15, 2013.
Summary: I worked like a dog and FINALLY got two scans out of this machine. They look terrific - especially since they were ancient, faded and in really bad shape. But, the positives end there. The software that comes with this thing is buggy as all get-out. Crash, crash, crash! I run Windows 7 (64 bit).
Summary: Bought Canoscan 9000f in January 2011 and it worked great. The included scanner software is clunky, but it gets the job done. A few days ago, I tried to turn on the scanner and nothing happened. Unscrewed and disconnected the built-in power adapter and put a multimeter on the output.
