Summary: I really can't say too much about the scanner. Although the scanner worked, I never got the software to work on my computer's system. But I can tell you that the seller was very nice and patient w/me trying to get the software to work. The delivery was good and the communication with the seller was great.
Summary: This scanner is excellent for scanning low profile 3d objects. It has a good depth of field to pick up detail and dimension without blurriness. I love this scanner. Unfortunately the company has not updated it to work with mac osx so if you have a newer mac don't get this scanner. Comes with good photo editing software. Easy to use without being so simple it loses functionality. I used this scanner for years to scan jewelry for my catalog.
Summary: Be warned - DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT Unfortunately I can not give this a Zero Star. When purchased new the scanner was faulty, and exhibited poor quality control with particles inside the scanner. It was returned for repair under warranty twice, and finally the main curcuit board was replaced.
Summary: When you get it, check the inside glass with flash light before you plug it in. Mine was peppered with grime and dust; Scans show these as white specks everywhere! I'm returning this product from company that does no quality checks on its product. Mine also had DOA film scanner. You can be sure I'll try to avoid all future canon products.
Summary: Don't buy a D660u. A week ago I bought (from Amazon) a new Canon D660u. After I hooked it up I noticed that the underside of the glass had grime on it and needed to be cleaned. An email from Canon in response to my question asking how to clean the underside of the glass, I was told that it is not consumer serviceable and needs to be forwarded to a warranty station.
Summary: My first experience with a Canon scanner was horrible. No response was received from Canon after 2 inquiries about a seemingly defective scanner. (Thank-god for Amazon customer service!) Despite the problems, I rolled the dice on another Canon and am pleased with it. The 660U scans reasonably fast; the picture quality is nice and the film scanner is a fantastic bonus. Hookup was a snap (Windows ME didn't even crash!) and the scanner has performed flawlessly since.
Summary: I bought this scanner because of its low price and features. What I really wanted was a good basic level slide/negative scanning capability at the lowest cost, and this scanner fits the bill well. Nothing could be easier than setting up this scanner--took all of 10 minutes (from opening the box to plugging it all in to loading software to actually scanning an image). Operation is very simple--put photo on platen, push button, follow on-screen prompts.
Summary: I purchased this scanner for the 35mm negitive scanning. I wasn't disappointed. I setup the machine, installed the software and was up and running scanning negitives in about 30 Minutes. Very nice negitive scanning at 1200x1200 for the price ( I was not interested in purchasing a 400.00 film scanner). Photo scanning was simular in quality. Overall a good product.
