Warning! This scanner does not work with Windows 10 ...
2 October 2015
Summary: Warning! This scanner does not work with Windows 10. Canon claims their new drivers work, but after hours on the phone with Canon tech support, their employee finally admitted that he hadn't been able to get any Canoscan (110,120,220, etc.) with Windows 10....including mine.
Conclusion: The construction is flimsy. My lid snapped-off at the plastic hinge. Now it has no top so it can't scan. The software is a usability nightmare. something from 1990's. couldn't get quick-buttons to work. Takes 3 interface screens to actually initiate the scan functionality.
Pros: Compact Design, price
Cons: Difficult to use, Slow-speed scanning, Flimsy Construction, software usability
Conclusion: I wish I could have the last 3 hrs of my life back. Could not install software and connect scanner on my PC or my Mac. Software is a joke! All recent reviews are terrible. Not sure what happened to the product. Stay away!
Cons: Slow Connectivity, Difficult to use, Slow-speed scanning
Conclusion: This is the least reliable scanner I have ever used. The software it comes with looks like it was designed in the mid-90s. I've had about one day of good usage, and the rest of the time it doesn't even connect to my PC. Spend a bit more, and avoid this scanner like the plague.
Pros: Compact Design
Cons: Slow Connectivity, Difficult to use, Flimsy Construction, rarely even connects
Conclusion: I have four Canon cameras + a very highend lens for one, but why they are skimming the bottom of the pond with this item is beyond me. I only need about 10 scans a week, so no need to spend big bucks. This little device is simply nasty with an iMac.
Pros: Compact Design, High resolution
Cons: Difficult to use, Flimsy Construction, poor mac connectivity
Poorly made software and limits usability. Frustration machine.

Summary: So at Cannon an "Autoscan" button means multiple software window will pop up prompting options and mouse clicks for EACH AND EVERY scan. I have hundreds of photos to scan and I was hoping for one-button scans...NOPE!
Conclusion: I purchased a LIDE100 which lasted less than a year. I only scan less than 100 items a year. Canon was nice about replacing this under warranty. They replaced with LIDE110 and now 10 months later it quit working. The original warranty period applies, so now I must buy a new scanner.
