Summary: I'd buy this thing again in a heartbeat & give it as a gift as well. It is very, very portable-you just slip it into your 17" backpack/laptop carrying case, no problem! Plug it in (w/Windows 8.1) and you are instantly in business. The scans come out great, it is easy to use the Windows 8.1 interface which automatically pops up, <shrug> no problem. You can whip this thing out at Starbucks, scan your items, then it away fast.
Conclusion: I purchased my canoscan 110 with ease and without any problems and it was delivered in a fair amount of time, I like the ease of operation just by pushing the " Email button it imeadetly scanned the document and opened the email program and was sent without a problem. The whole machine is small and about 1 1/2 square feet of desk space.
Conclusion: I recently installed my new LiDE 110 scanner and found the manual to be most helpful. This scanner is easy to use and has more features than I knew of when I purchased it. Nice product, and great service when I needed it.
Lightweight, affordable and user friendly. The whole package

Summary: Outstanding, especially for quick and easy use or professional work. Settings are easy to navigate, resolution user friendly for adjustment to various types of documents, books, and comes with magazine setting to capture multiple colors at precise levels, compatible with upload requirements on websites and online. The DPI feature allows easy uploads to sites with restrictions on pixel level. Lightweight and stylish, yet simple and effective.
Conclusion: OK, so it's not the LiDE110, it's the LiDE70! BUT I'll bet the speed and resolution has improved a bunch. I've been using the '70 for about 5 years and its portability suits my needs (fits in my backpack WITH my laptop and only one cable needed). Nothing broke, everything works, one-button scanning is great, software a bit quirky but works just fine. Once pointed to the directory of your choice it drops your scan right where you want it. Pretty awesome, if you ask me...
Pros: Compact Design, Fast Connectivity, High resolution, easy to use, price!
Summary: Not as easy to use as my old LIDE 30. I'm not an advanced computer wiz, but I figured it out after a while. It does work great, tho. If you're not computer smart, get someone who is and save yourself some time and sweat. Again, it IS a good scanner.
