Excerpt: I am very pleased with this Canon scanner. I bought this to make multi page PDF scans and it works great for this application. I'm able to make 100+ page PDFs. Each page takes about ten seconds to warm up and scan each page. It's about right for my ability to turning pages and realign them on the glass. The scans are of hand written cursive writing and the auto settings work well to create clear images.
Very good for my home task of scanning in thousands of photos.

Summary: This machine has been doing a very good job for me. I have primarily been using it to scan in thousands of old photographs. I feel I have been putting it to the test with my hundreds (maybe thousands) of "scans" performed. One feature that is great: I can throw down several pictures on the glass, let's say 3 for this example, and with a single pass it will create 3 separate files - one for each picture.
Conclusion: I scan a lot of photos and other documents for genealogy purposes and this scanner is the real deal. It is small enough to fit in my laptop case and still leave room for the computer. It does not require a clunky separate power supply allowing me to set up and scan anywhere: libraries, family homes, etc., so it goes with me on all family and vacation trips.
Pros: Compact Design, durable, Fast Connectivity, High resolution, easy to use

Fast Fast Fast Scanner, Great For Large Quantities of Photos

Summary: Perfect for my needs -- speed scanning a few hundred family photos for a slideshow. For 300 and 400 DPI (slideshow quality) it scanned so fast I barely had time to grab my next photo. The software was a little confusing at first -- I didn't realize you had to save your scans initially -- but plenty intuitive that I had the hang of it quickly. It's very lightweight and would fit easily in a laptop bag (just don't forget to lock the scanner before hefting it somewhere!).
Excerpt: Long ago, I bought a CanoScan 3000x from Staples and was happy with it for many years until I upgraded to a new operating system for which Canon did not provide drivers. I went back to staples to get the latest Canon scanner model and was sad to learn that Staples no longer sold Canon scanners in their stores. The only option for purchasing a scanner in-store was the Epson V37 line. I decided to give the Epson a try. Big mistake.
Excerpt: I've been looking for a good, reasonably priced scanner for quite sometime to scan old pictures of polaroids - this is exactly the product I needed. Installing the software took no more than 5 minutes, instructions are very simple and it's a very light and portable scanner. I recommend this for any type of scanning, I was really shocked when it got the borders of my polaroids because typically scanners can't get hte white portion of the photos.
Excerpt: I had no idea I would use this scanner so much nor did I realize how nice it is to scan directly into a PDF no more GIF or JPEG - scanning of documents.. This scanner is light, easy to plug in and out if you don't want to keep it around it is light weight, VERY efficient and SUPER easy to use as easy as "push this button that says PDF" or "scan and email" no worries.. need to print from scan? Go ahead push "print" and it will send the scan to your printer...
Pros: Compact design, Durable, Easy to use, fast connectivity, High resolution, High-speed scanning, Smart Design
