LiDE 200 Series, 1 year on

clinton t., Newegg
18 July 2011
  • Summary: Good enough for the road, good enough for the kind of business I do when traveling; Documents scanning for record preservation of standard paper sizes.
  • Pros: Lightweight and portable with decent quality scans. Has held up to a lot of traveling, just remember to lock it at the bottom prior to packing. Draws it's energy from a USB 2.0 port and works off my laptop and desktop without issue.
  • Cons: The software has taken a bit of getting used to from a previous version of the scanner's. Probably won't be powered off a netbook's USB port, you would have to research this before bying.

Great Scanner

Matthew R., Newegg
2 December 2010
  • Summary: Scans fairly quickly, roughly 10 seconds or less a page. I'd imagine it would be longer for a higher dpi setting, but the quality on the default setting is more than sufficient for my purposes, and I'm very happy with this product overall.
  • Pros: A huge perk to this scanner is it does not require an external power source: the data and power is utilized through a single USB cable. Comes with a stand. The stand props it up on its side...its about 15-20 degrees shy of a right angle, allowing enough of a lean to be stable. Since I don't use t...
  • Cons: Bundled software isn't great by any stretch of the imagination, but it does work on Windows 7 pro 64 bit. There is even a little piece of paper included telling you how to ensure it installs properly on Windows 7/Vista. The software interface is a bit confusing and clunky, but I'm able to manage ...

good scanner unless ur on win 7

Joshua K., Newegg
5 November 2010
  • Summary: Ended up using 3rd party software. If anything, it's an improvement over the original software.
  • Pros: Scanner itself works great. We were on WinXP when we started using this and it served us well for the price.
  • Cons: Recently upgraded to Win7 - not supported by the scanner software.

Inexpensive, compact and effective

Norman B., Newegg
29 September 2010
  • Summary: These inexpensive little Canon flatbeds are much better than the ones in an all-in-one printer (to my eval) and will do thicker media such as books. Compact enough to sit next to your monitor and always ready.
  • Pros: Very affordable Excellent scan speed for a compact flatbed scanner Very good scan results Adequate software (it really hasn't changed much from my the software that came with my 5 year old canon N1220u scanner, but is much faster). The scan speed is very good and after an initial calibration can ...
  • Cons: Somewhat poor text scanning. Works better just to leave it on color/auto at 300+DPI.

Great scanner for the quality and price

Clifford Y., Newegg
8 September 2010
  • Summary: I don't have much desk space and since I only use the scanner 1-2X a month, I usually keep it bagged in the original plastic bag it came in on a shelf under my computer desk. Compared to scanners of decades ago, having just a single connection via USB for power and data is perfect for this...
  • Pros: Works as it should. Have had ZERO problems in the 2 years I've owned it.
  • Cons: Yes the software bundled with it sucks. I tolerate it because I mainly use the scanner for documents and very infrequent photo scanning.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 200 Flatbed Scanner

Snowflake, ReviewStream
3 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The Canon CanoScan flatbed scanner is a wonderful scanner that works very well. I purchased this scanner because I was tired of spending extra money for all-in-one printers that did not last more than a couple years. By getting this scanner I now have freedom to purchase less expensive …

Good, if not a little quirky

Graeme S., Newegg
8 July 2010
  • Summary: Another reviewer wrote that it scans all the images upside down. That depends on your perspective. If you open the lid away from you, then yes that's right. If position the scanner the long way so that you're opening the lid like a book, then there's nothing wrong with the scanning orientation.
  • Pros: Good bang for the buck. USB-powered so there's no obnoxious adapter hogging 3 plugs on my power strip! Takes up less desk space than my comparable Epson with the same platter size. Integrates well with my third-party photo management software so I don't have to use the relatively annoying softwar...
  • Cons: Software is obnoxious. Maybe I should take off more "eggs" for that, but the fact is that I've never seen good software packaged with a scanner from ANY manufacturer. It might be a global conspiracy to lull us into a sense of contentment with mediocre software (LOL). The most annoying thing is th...

No Linux support

Anonymous, Newegg
14 June 2010
  • Summary: Older CanoScan LiDE scanners do have SANE support, and work great.
  • Pros: USB powered, LED scan bulb( doesn't lose color over time )
  • Cons: Canon has no intention of providing documentation for linux support. This scanner is not compatible with SANE.

  • Pros: Very fast in scanning pages, light and portable. Software is easy to use and option to scan in as a PDF is really helpful. Great product for the money.
