Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
Summary: I bought this scanner so I could digitize many old family photos and it works great. Not terribly fast, but it gets the job done to my satisfaction. It is super easy to install and I love the fact it doesn't have tons of wires and cords to plug into my my computer. The USB cable is all you need for both power and connectivity.
Summary: Needed a scanner for our home office and was researching them online when I found this one. First of all, I was SO impressed with the seller who got the item to me in 1 day!!! The scanner is EXTREMELY easy to use, and I consider myself somewhat computer ignorant. I have not used it for pictures yet (just some documents), but it looks like it can do some amazing restoration with old pictures.
Summary: This scanner is excellent for everyday use. You plug in the USB cable, download and install the (free) proprietary software (MP Navigator EX 2.0), and you're good to go. I'm running mine with a WinXP64 computer. It reads color photos and b&w documents from the start and allows saving as a PDF with some additional (free) downloaded software. The only complaint I have is the noise. The scanner "arm" sounds like it is scraping the glass when it moves during a scan.
Summary: It's simplicity of use. Great size to go in bag with laptop. Have a 70 on wifes system... almost bought another of same, but could upgrade for same price and get new with a bit higher quality, and buttons are easier to see and use. ALSO am a retired Canon Copier Tech. So I know Canon's quality is second to no one!!!
Summary: I did a bit or research before purchasing and the Canon LIDE 100 lives up to its reviews. This scanner, although it is tiny, is a powerhouse for the price!! The USB cable also powers the unit and it scans photos and text quite well. I would highly recommend this scanner for the home office, because the OCR is superb, as well as those who wish to scan photos for posting on websites, etc.
