Not compatible with Windows Vista

14 December 2007
  • Summary: I found out too late that the driver and software for this scanner isn't compatible with Vista. This caused my hard drive crash, the need to restore my laptop to factory condition, thus losing all my files and data. I can't honestly rate the scanner performance because I wasn't able to use it. Unless I find a Vista compatible driver, I'll never be able to use.

Don't buy this one

  • Summary: Steer clear of this one. Bad quality, grainy, off-colour scans that take a long time to scan - along with an interesting errr-errrrrr-screeech sound when scanning! It's already been returned.
  • Pros: Slim design, comes with good picture software (probably because you'll need them...)
  • Cons: Really bad quality, grainy and off-colour scans, takes a long time to scan, screeeeeech,...

  • Summary: Stay away from this model and find something modern with USB 2.0. Scanning is basic stuff, folks. Why Canon screwed this up, I don't know.
  • Pros: the hardware is of good quality. produces high-quality images.
  • Cons: transfers over USB 1.1! absolutely absurd for 2006.

Good DOCUMENT scanner but nothing else!!!

Computer fan, Amazon
21 December 2005
  • Summary: I was bought this scanner 2 months ago because of some GREAT comments of this site. But believe me this scanner is ONLY FOR B/W DOCUMENTS or some simple color pictures. Nothing else. The color scanning is terrible. All picturies are in RED, and deep shadows details are missing. Don't buy it for quality color scanning.

This item did not work on my XP system

Anthony Lacy "Alacy", Amazon
21 October 2008
  • Summary: I wanted a cheap/cheerful scanner for occasional copying of documents and this little scanner seemed perfect. Delivery was prompt and installation was easy. As with most USB devices it was important to install driver and other software before plugging in using the supplied USB cable. Unfortunately, the only result I achieved in several hours were error messages telling me that no scanner was connected.

Kurzbewertung zu Canon Canoscan LiDE 25

refilix, Dooyoo
22 April 2010
  • Summary: Ich bin sicher das die Testberichte hier stimmtig sind, daher gehe ich nicht weiter auf den Scanner ein. Also um die Überschrift zu erklären. Der Scanner war seinerzeit wirklich gut. Dafür das es so günstig und klein ist, war die Qualität immer in Ordnung. Es gibt mitlerweile nur ein Problem. Es läuft nicht unter Windows 7. Es gibt einfach keine Treiber dafür. Man bekommt zwar den Scanner zum laufen, aber nur durch einige Tricks was das Scannen unnötig schwierig macht.
