Dont waste your money

Diane, Staples
17 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Even though I read all the reviews and still bought this model, I should have upgraded. If you don't have much to do and you don't mind waiting, this scanner does take it's time. Also, if you aren't gentle, the hinge that holds the top on cracks and breaks really easily which makes it very difficult to work with.

Be a techie to use

MD Terp 66, Adorama
5 August 2014
  • Excerpt: 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, Low resolution, poor documention, Slow-speed scanning

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

Its technically ok BUT menu system is very confusing!

Yudahshlomi, Amazon
6 September 2012
  • Summary: The scanner arrived in perfect condition. The software installed quickly without problems. When Ready for use, the difficulties emerged: the menu and instant buttons were confusing, time consuming and quite aggravating. Every time one wants to make a simple copy, pressing the COPY button on the front of the scanner did not start a copying process, but required selection in a most confusing menu. The same for making a PDF file.

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.
