Be a techie to use

MD Terp 66, Canon
2 weeks ago
  • Conclusion: Better be a techie to install and use this in Windows 8. Installation can't find Windows 8 as OS (doesn't offer Win 7 either). Has addendum for running on Windows 8. Installation does not build a icon, so you have to create shortcut yourself, by finding a file name not used in the documentation. Box stated 4800 dpi, but I have not found a setting greater than 1200. Box states runs in Win 8, but documentation is terrible.
  • Pros: Compact Design, one cable operation
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Slow-speed scanning, Low resolution, poor documention

LiDE 210 Software Incompatible with Win 7

Mohabee, Adorama
9 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this scanner for its "easy set up and satisfactory scanning," which was touted by an online retailer. Reviews seemed favorable at that site, and the price was right. Unfortunately, the software that accompanied the scanner is apparently not compatible with Win 7 Home Edition,on a 64 bit laptop computer. The hard drive on this machine is empty, and this software was the second installed, after the security software.
  • Pros: Compact design, High resolution, High-speed scanning, Lightweight
  • Cons: Difficult to use, software not compatible with win 7

Incompatible with Win 7 Home Edition

Mohabee, Staples
7 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I've had nothing but "Navigator has stopped working" error messages since day one with this scanner! Canon's support is not helpful. It's a lost cause--Win 7 and this machine are apparently not compatible.
  • Cons: Difficult Setup, Poor Software

Great scanner, lousy software

Tom, Canon
3 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Horrible software packages. Finding the right way through complicated, over-sophisticated menus to find a simple way to scan a document and save it is a big hassle. After reinstalling my PC I thought it would be a shortcut to download the software, but I still had to download, try, delete a couple of packages. Why does it have to be so time consuming to get going with this scanner???
  • Pros: Compact Design, High-speed scanning
  • Cons: Difficult to use, lack of simplicity

10 April 2013

  • Pros: Features, Easy to Use, Performance
  • Cons: Build Quality

Great but a problem

David M. Wine, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: This is a great scanner to use - friendly and easy. However, there is one flaw that is prevalent that keeps this product's review at the low end. The scanner lock seems to engage and the switch will not change the lock position. A seach of this problem on the internet indicates this is common to many users. I finally had to junk this scanner as no matter what I did it would never unlock and became useless.

Bulb out after a month

Matt, Canon
9 July 2012
  • Conclusion: This scanner was great while it was working. Problem is it doesn't work anymore. I had it for about a month, used it very rarely, and now the bulb is burnt out. The scanner basically sits in one spot on my desk so not sure why this would happen - it's not from being jarred or anything. I saw someone else had the same issue so I assume they just have poor quality bulbs in them.

INeedToScan, Canon
9 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The bulb in the scanner would work on an off. Now after about 20 scans the bulb never lights up. How can this thing be broken after barley being used.
