Summary: Only has one USB cable which transports data and power. This scanner would be great if it was wireless, or net-workable, but there is a reason it's so cheap. It's kinda noisy, and feels a little too easy to break, but other than that it'll do the job it was intended to do.
Summary: We wanted an inexpensive scanner, and we got what we paid for. The scanner itself does a decent job of scanning images, but it isn't as quick as I'd like. It was easy to install, and it works every time we need it.
Not the fastest or the best, but good for the money

Summary: While it certainly does not scan in record time and the auto-adjustments for color and levels are dodgy at best, if you're willing to do the adjustments properly yourself, this scanner will work fine.
Summary: It's very sleek and nice looking. I wish the instructions came in writting instead of on a disk. It's hard to read instructions and set the settings when you have to keep changing Screens on your PC.
Summary: I've only had my Canon LiDE100 scanner for a couple of weeks, but I have used it several times for a variety of tasks. I would not recommend this scanner for scanning important photographs. Mine creates a lot of white dots and other artifacts in the scanned image.
Summary: Bought this scanner to replace my failed Epson Perfection 1650. I like its compact size and quietness, and find the operating speed close to that of the 1650. The software is ok, and scanner operation is as convenient as that of the 1650, but there is less flexibility to allow altering color...
Summary: The Photo studio 5.5 edition supplied with this scanner is not compatible with Windows 7. And it is impossible to find the update on the Arc Soft site; it just takes you to a page saying you can update to Photo Studio 6 for a fortune minus $20 offer (!).
Summary: This scanner has the advantage of being small and light and produces a reasonable image. However, the 4 buttons on the machine do nothing other than bring up a software option screen relating to unconnected products. I would not recommend this scanner for anything other than its portability.
