Conclusion: The scanned is difficult to use and forward scanned images. It is also slow but I recognize I did buy a lower quality machine. I have had it for less than months and use it about once a week. the light source quit working. I should have purchased a more expensive model
Conclusion: This one was very good for the first few months, but all of sudden it does not work after using 5-6 months, especially I only use 1-2 times in average per week and only scan 1-2 pages of my document each. I am disappointed as Canon is no longer to repair/fix this model at all.
Pros: Compact Design, High resolution, easy to use
Summary: The scanner works as expected. The scanner speed of scanning is acceptable. However, my biggest complaint against Canon is this. They made me buy this scanner due to lack of Windows 8 support for the LIDE 20 scanner. The earlier product was fine and they made me buy this scanner unnecessarily.
Summary: this is not so good scanner. it don't have preview option also. moerover the photo copy button is useless also as being a scanner it do not accept any other printer for printing. rest is all normal.the clarity is good even more than the usual scanned document.
Summary: This product has without doubt the worst interface software I have ever seen. The maker were probably trying to make it idiot proof but in the process have made it almost useless. Nothing wrong with the hardware but software makes it not worth having.
Summary: When I first installed the scanner I could not get it to work. It kept telling me to unlock the slider - which I had done - but the message kept coming back. I contacted Canon and it took a while for them to reply. They told me to plug USB directly into computer and not via an extension.
Good quality scans, struggles with non-smooth items

Summary: LED back-light tech used in this scanner has serious issues with certain types of media. Scans perfectly photographs that are flat, however if you are scanning photos that have been slightly crumpled, the LED light seams to highlight these folds really badly no matter how I try to flatten them.
Summary: The scanner itself is good quality, scanned pictures and documents are clear. However, the software that has to be used with it is almost useless. I am using Windows 7 (not exactly uncommon) and need a scanner for occasional use (every couple of weeks or so).
Summary: This is the fourth or fifth scanner I have owned and it is by far the least satisfactory. The software is counter-intuitive and frustrating to use - it seems the makers have tried too hard to make it idiot-proof and in doing so defeated their own object.
Excerpt: Как сканер для документов, все отлично! Для сканирования цветного фото абсолютно не годится, изображение получается очень бледным, но это пол беды, основная проблема в том что картинка получается рябая, какая то вся в полосочку. Настройки все перелопатил но толку НЕТ!!! Вот как то так.
