Summary: Just start using it yesterday, so far works great, just with the push of a bottom you hace pdf files, copy, scan o email format, the colors are great to, the software, well a little complicated but I just start using it yesterday, when I have more time to play with it, I think I'll figure it out.
Summary: I previously had a Canon Flatbed Scanner. It connected to the computer through a parallel port. I bought a new computer and it has USB ports and rendered my scanner useless, so I bought this one as a replacement. I have found scanners to be very finicky when installing their software and trying to get them to work. I had problems getting this one to install. It took me 4 tries before I was finally successful.
Summary: The scanner is tiny. It does a great job and does not need any downloaded drivers in windows 7 as long as you do not use the front buttons. To use the front buttons you need to download "MP Navigator EX Ver. 2.03" from the Canon web site. The Navigator program gives you MANY additional features like save as PDF, auto scanning which allows you to scan a text doc and a photo at the same time and it saves each separately and in the proper format!
Summary: - Scans fast - The preview and actual scan take the same amount of time - Quiet - Accurate and fast OCR - My documents are typewritten and clear, the OCR'd text comes within 1 second of completing scanning, without errors. - Single cord to the machine (no power cord) - Software is not 100% intuitive as some controls are not obvious. But has options for removing bleed thru automatically on a page and removing 'specks' from a scan.
Summary: I have been satisfied with the scanner and was pleased to have avoided buying a black one. I would have liked it to have been a little deeper as it does not fill the space taken up by my old scanner. I have avoided using the software prefering instead to work in my existing photoshop. Anyone who takes the time and trouble to digest the software, I feel would not be disappointed. So, in short I haven't given it a fair test.
Summary: Does the job well How ever, although I did not pay as much for my Copier Canon Scan Lide 80 (which is about 10 yrs. old and still going well) The software on this scanner CanoScan LiDe 200 is not so sraight forward. But copy using Capture with ArcSoft PhotoStudio 5.5 CANNO is excellent But as I say, quite satisfied with product and reproduction is good Sailor Sidney
Summary: I did have an old Lexmark multi-function machine including a scanner, which not only took up a lot of space, but was very slow as well, and that needed replacement. I didn't see the need for an expensive scanner so decided on the Canon LiDE200. Whilst the quality of the scanning on the Lex was OK, once I used the Canon LiDe 200 it was difficult to believe the level of improvement of quality.
Summary: My old scanner wouldn't work with Windows 7 so I looked for a new and higher resolution scanner that would. So far it has worked perfectly although I have yet to find out how to obtain the very highest definition scan.
Summary: I bought this make and model of scanner after reading the previous good reviews. It works fine, the scanned images are excellent and the supporting software is easy and straightforward to use. I have preference for using MS XP OS, the program downloaded without problem on my computer. Very happy with the purchase of the scanner which was delivered very promptly to me.
Summary: I bought this scanner to transfer old slides onto the computer, primarily, but also to use as a straight scanner. It becomes ready for use almost immediately. My old scanner took forever warming itself up, which was frustrating when there was only 1 document to scan. The Canon's preview scan is rapid and the software easy to use. I have only experimented with the slide scanning attachment so far. The plastic holder locates 4 slides without too much trouble.
