A scanner that gives excellent quality images, but only for "flat" documents

jamesat, epinions.com

  • Summary: You can have quality images only for documents touching the platen. It is not recommended for documents with irregular/inclined surfaces, because it will render the elevated areas blurred.
  • Pros: -Scans documents in very high resolution (up to 600 dpi) -Automatic detection of multiple documents
  • Cons: -Renders blurred images for inclined documents -Automatic detection of documents is sometimes inaccurate

Canoscan from Beach Camera

vern1180, Ebay
6 October 2009
  • 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. The Scanner did not work for the Purpose I needed it for and the Company that sold it to me were very rude. They would not even consider the Idea of me returning it for a Half price credit to buy another one at Three times the Cost!!!

Nice scanne for the money

John E. Wente "okiebikinguy", Amazon

  • 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. The image is of fairly good quality except for this. This seems to be due at least in part to foreign particles on inside of the scanner glass. This is an indication of shoddy manufacturing practice.

Canon LiDE100

Randle Blankenship, Amazon
8 November 2008
  • 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 satuation, hue, etc. I found image sharpness disappointingly soft, and color saturation less than that of the original photo being copied.

Software for Windows 7 - humph!

S. A. K. Chillingworth, Amazon
18 January 2010
  • 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 (!). However, found this update through Google - it enables updating to edition 6 at no cost, and edition 6 is Windows 7 comaptible :) go to: [...

It's ok

David Benton, Amazon
6 December 2009
  • 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.

Spotty scans

G. R. Hunt "Geoffrey Hunt", Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: My new CanonScan LiDE 100 scanner, using the basic scan mode, produced lots of white dots when scanning a dark background. I should probably have sent it back. By making specific adjustments, I could produce a scan with only a single white spot, but a new scanner should have had no white spots on any setting. I've yet to find out what is really wrong.
