  • Pros: Affordably priced. Good quality scans. No external power needed -- just a single USB connection.
  • Cons: Unlike the Canon LiDE 30 that this is replacing, this scanner doesn't come with a stand to put it in a vertical orientation, meaning it takes up a lot more desk space. I was surprised to see a nice feature like this go away. Like most Canon products, the software is not nearly as nice as the hard...

Hi-res and very portable

Anonymous, Newegg
11 October 2010
  • Summary: On Windows 7, install the driver, connect the scanner when it asks, then install the larger software download, then install the smaller...
  • Pros: Much quieter than my HP; needs no AC adapter. Scans quick and on high-resolution I get good detail. The slim body makes it perfect for any laptop user needing imaging on-the-go. Photoshop compatibility is good: the scanner is easily accessed and manipulated through Photoshop.
  • Cons: Windows 7 software not included; best installed if downloaded from Canon's site (they do include a 64-bit version). Software was a bit kludgy in that it had three separate installation pieces.

Scanner great; driver useless.

  • Summary: I got this scanner as a lightweight, no-frills portable for when I have to take work to the beach, like a Harmony Sovereign guitar. And for the price, it works beautifully and does exactly what I need.

Adequate Scanner, Decent Software

Benjamin B., Newegg
24 June 2010
  • Summary: I think, given the choice, I would have bought a higher quality scanner for the price, but there probably isn't anything else in this price range that touches the quality of the LiDE 100.
  • Pros: This scanner has served me and my business well, and is still kicking almost 11 months later. It is not for super high-quality archives, but more so for good-enough scanning/printing, and at this it excels. Fairly fast, average scanning quality for colors, does a better than average job at scanni...
  • Cons: Could use better software, as it never makes terribly clear where/when something is written to your hard drive. I would also like if there was less noise to the color scans, which can take some creative tweaking to correct.

Nice scanner, NOT Linux-compatible

Andrew C., Newegg
16 June 2010
  • Pros: Good scanner, no real functionality issues.
  • Cons: Not Linux-compatible. I know this isn't an issue for many, but for those who run Linux and are considering buying this, be forewarned. I'm having to run WinXP on VirtualBox to use this scanner.

Good Canon

Jesse W., Newegg
12 May 2010
  • Summary: My previous CanoScan lasted me over 8 years and still works well. However, I updated to Win7 and old model wasn't supported by OS. So as you can read on Canon's website, this model is supported by Win7...sweet right. Well the Arcsoft PhotoStudio isn't supported by Win7.
  • Pros: It's a Canon so I know it will last and it does a great job at what it's supposed to do.
  • Cons: Minus 1 egg because Canon packaged their Win7 compliant scanner with not so compliant software.

Great little scanner

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Very portable! Small and light, great for packing to grandma's house to scan old photos. Powered off the USB port.
  • Cons: Scan quality and speed are a notch below a good desktop scanner. Not bad, just not quite as good, on either count. I have an older Epson 1200U on my desktop and it's a better scanner and scans more quickly. But you wouldn't want to pack it along on a trip.

Canon Lide 100 Scanner - Driver Issue as of Now

Love New Gadgets, Amazon
27 January 2010
  • Summary: This scanner replaces my previous almost identical model. I got a new computer, which is 64 bit and that is the only reason I had to replace my previous scanner, which was 32 bit. They are almost identical.
