Not for advanced users

Tom, Canon
25 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Pros - Easy to use for average users. Single cord - no need for a power cord or power supply brick. This is a major plus if you're traveling with this scanner, or occasionally need to place it in the middle of a large table to scan large items. Neutral - Not any faster than the 12+ year-old scanner it was replacing.

Slow to get started - good after that

PhillyMacUser, Staples
2 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I got this scanner to replace a 5 year old Canon Lide scanner, which worked well and simply - until it died a month ago. With this new scanner it took over 15 minutes to get to the point where I could start to scan, between the CD installation process with many prompts, plus being sent to the Canon site twice to retreive and then give information. This process seemed a bit old school for 2014.
  • Pros: Good Resolution, Works With Mac Os
  • Cons: Difficult Setup, Slow

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

software difficult to understand

Careful Shopper, Amazon
29 August 2013
  • Summary: I would not recommend this product. The software was very difficult to understand. We needed the help of our son a computer expert to figure it out. We were ready to return item until he helped us out. Once installed and after some use, it was OK. The installation also said "a driver was missing" but that did not hurt ultimate use.

Don't scan textbooks, scratches inside glass

Trahloc, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: Don't scan material from a heavy book like a textbook. You'll scratch the inside glass. If you're looking to scan anything with any weight to it they designed this thing to have sharp bits on the scanner head which then scratches the inside of the glass. If you're looking to just scan single sheets or photographs then +1 star.

Not awesome

Donna, Staples
