Meh...

Eric H., Newegg
2 October 2010
  • Summary: Old, obsolete software bundled with hardware seems to be a common thing nowadays and most of the time the response is "Sorry about your luck" when you contact them for compatible versions. Because of this I wouldn't recommend anyone buy this scanner.
  • Pros: Compact, USB powered....cheap.
  • Cons: Barely OK performance, however my big issue is with these companies including obsolete bundled software that is incompatible with Windows 7 even though they label this scanner as Win7 ready. Come on, Win7 has been out for quite a while now...this is inexcusable. At least offer a free upgrade via ...

Canon LiDE 100 Unsupported in Linux

Andrew B., Newegg
12 September 2010
  • Summary: Manufacturers should make it explicitly clear that a product is not intended for Linux if that is the case. Welcome to the 21st Century, guys! Linux users should not assume, even today, even with first line manufacturers, that there will be Linux support.
  • Pros: None for a Linux user.
  • Cons: SANE confirms this scanner is unsupported.

You get what you pay for

Arizona L., Newegg
1 December 2009
  • Summary: steer clear - this is bargain basement stuff
  • Pros: Its small and quiet
  • Cons: Everything that I scan comes in with a pink hue that needs to be color corrected in photoshop. unit shuts itself down when not in use. The Buttons are unresponsive and windows cant see it. The scanner wont wake up until you pull the plug out of the back and then push it back in.

Dont Buy It!

Cesar M. Cardenas Torres, Amazon
15 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought this scanner on sept 2009. It worked fine, not great picture quality but I mostly scan text, so no big deal on quality. After more than 2 years and probably no more than 100 scans it just stopped working.

It's finally in the trash

Susan, Amazon
15 December 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this five years ago, for half the price they're now asking, to copy book pages while away at school. It's very lightweight and fits in my backpack and laptop bag along with the laptop. However, everything it's ever copied has been blurry, often too blurry to be of any use.

Epic fail

chicken pie, Amazon
28 July 2010
  • Summary: Straight out of the box the scanner head is unable to move, gets stuck and screeches until I turn it off, probably due to broken tracks or motors. Now I have to pay to send it back. Too bad I don't have anything to print the return slip with. Thanks Canon!
