Summary: This is an excellent scanner, but not for computers running Windows 8.1. That program doesn't recognize the scanner. But while I had my old computer, I found this scanner to be simple and basic and a joy to use.
Summary: Even though this is over ten years old, it can still work with not just Windows 8, but Windows 8.1 as well. All you need to do is download and install the Windows 7 Drivers with compatibility mode and install canon toolbox and works like a charm.
Summary: I use this scanner on the road all the time. It is easy to transport, scans at a high definition, and is great when I work in confined archives. I would highly recommend this to anyone in need of a small device that'll do its job without complaint of issue.
Summary: Simplicity at its finest. High quality images with really good software to drive this USB connected device. I have purchased 3 identical units and have them set up at home and work to ensure that I can seamlessly move to different docking stations with zero drive or interface issues.
