Worked fine, for a while

James R., Newegg
13 December 2008
  • Summary: However, immediately after the warranty expired, now it only works on a PC (mac can't see it anymore?) and then reads in negative... so I'm assuming it's shot.
  • Pros: Good value, or would be if it outlived the warranty
  • Cons: Slow, Limited quality, Died after only a year.

Turtle

David G., Newegg

  • Summary: OK, USB power is nice, makes the unit portable, pretty much sucks other then that.
  • Pros: The scanner has not caught fire and burnt the school down.... yet!
  • Cons: Sloooooooooooooooow! The scans are OK but the time and hassle to get there is not worth the time. Visioneer is much better at speed and simplicity and the scan window does not need to be shut down to edit the scan.

Product poor. Canon helpdesk friendly.

wolfgang w., Newegg
21 December 2007
  • Summary: A simple christmas present that was anything but simple to use. Loud and very slow when it worked.I will be asking for a refund.
  • Pros: Good looking, powered from the USB. Lots and lots of software. It was a Christmas present for the wife to use on her computer. Canon help desk was very nice.
  • Cons: Lots and lots and lots of software. Worked about twice producing 2 really awful copies/scans and that took a noisy and long time. It stopped working after that. Wife phoned up Canon and spent over an hour trying to get it to work. Removing and reinstalling drivers ,trying different USB ports etc....

Good grief !

Alex M., Newegg
31 October 2007
  • Summary: I have only owned this unit for a couple of hours. Within those couple of hours I gave up trying to install this thing. Next step, call the brother-in-law for a consultation.
  • Pros: Cheap, light, good software bundle, and compact.
  • Cons: Impossible to install. It suppose to be plug-n-play, but for petesake keep it simple man!.

Macintosh users beware

WGC, Amazon
30 May 2006
  • Summary: I purchased the model several years ago. I'd been quite happy with it, it worked on my PCs or my Macintoshs. The problem now is Canon has not kept up with the drivers on the Macintosh and since I don't use PCs anymore this unit is dead weight.

User Review

toshkolab, Yandex

  • Excerpt: Да так себе сканер, мне не понравился
  • Pros: Легкий, компактный, питание от USB
  • Cons: ОЧень медленно сканирует. Из-за того, что источник света LED при сканировании книг нечетко сканирует части соединения страниц (сканирует только часть листа, которая крепко прижата к стеклу). Не годится для тех, кто сканирует книги и создает библиотеки.

Trop Fragile

  • Excerpt: Ce scanner ne supporte pas le transport. Après reception, pas moyen de le dévérouiller, (la position dévérouillé n'est pas détectée) ce problème est très malheureusement très courant sur les modèle LiDE (cf les différents forums)

Mehr erwartet

Andreas D. Halscheidt, Amazon
9 September 2008
  • Summary: Nachdem dieser Artikel doch recht positiv bewertet wurde, bin ich persönlich doch etwas enttäuscht. Zerbrechlich erscheinende Hardware, bei Gebrauch sehr laut (hoffentlich nicht nur bei mir) und unausgegorene Software (verwirrende Befehle, Schreibfehler, wohl eher (was die Grafik betrifft) für...

Langsam und laut

D. Greitens, Amazon
4 June 2008
  • Summary: Teuer ist das Gerät nicht. Aber gut auch nicht. Um ein Blatt zu scannen, braucht das Gerät samt endloser Kalibrierung eine Ewigkeit... Für den Vielgebrauch absolut nicht zu empfehlen.
