Canoscan Lide

annieL, Amazon
28 June 2015
  • 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.

Works fine but painfully slow

Julian S., Newegg
8 May 2008
  • Summary: It's fine if you only use it every once and again and you don't have to scan anything exceeding about 3 pages or photos...
  • Pros: It's small, it doesn't need an external power source, it's inexpensive and it works just fine. The drivers are fine, too and I havn't had problems under Linux or Win64.
  • Cons: It's seriously slow. It takes close to a minute to scan a page (Letter) at 1-bit (black/white) at a resolution as low as 150dpi. You really don't want to do OCR or scan larger documents on this one. I knew a scanner in this class would be slow, but I didn't quite appreciate just HOW slow this is.

Cheap entry model

Anonymous, Newegg
27 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this for my completely non-tech-savvy mother-in-law. After I got it setup and defaults tweaked, she has been using it to capture documents and some old photos. All without calling me! Whoohoo
  • Pros: Low cost. Good for someone just needing a scanner for casual document storage.
  • Cons: Not too speedy. Excessive amount of software (none of which is very feature rich). Took a bit of tweaking to get the scanner to do photos with any sort of printable quality.

Longetity

Long N., Newegg
23 September 2007
  • Summary: Other than the quality of the product in terms of longevity, I would recommend this product. Might be a bad batch.
  • Pros: No power cords, fast warm up and ease of use made this one of the best Scanners I have owned.
  • Cons: The scanner died 8 months into its life. Sending it back to Canon for repairs.

Scan this Miserable Experience

The Unplain Jane, Amazon
7 August 2007
  • Summary: I'm a big fan of Canon products in general however this product really is making me rethink things. It gives decent image quality but is very noisy, slow, and causes strange computer issues.

Great for scanning photos or anything perfectly flat that is 8.5 x 11 or smaller.

Jeremy E., Newegg
12 June 2007
  • Summary: If you are wanting to scan photos, drawings that your kids make, or your various certificates from Microsoft, I don't think you can find a better deal on a scanner. If you want to scan anything with even minor depth, like your high school letters or paintings that your kids have done, find a...
  • Pros: Excellent color. Wonderfully easy to use (power through the USB connection is a small thing that makes a big difference). Drivers work well for the front buttons and for scanning using Photoshop. Did I mention the color and the quality of the scan?
  • Cons: Only buy this if you plan on scanning nothing but flat things that are the size of the platen (8.5 x 11.69 in) or smaller. Anything that is not touching the glass is blurry when scanned. If something is greater than 1/8 in away from the glass, it starts to become unrecognizable. At 1/16 in it is ...

Pretty good

Joel Rathbun, Amazon
10 June 2007
  • Summary: This scanner is pretty good considering that I paid less than fifty dollars for it. I don't like the software it came with very much, and I didn't know I was going to have to read a fourty page manual to learn how to use the editing program it comes with either.

Works good in W2000 if....

John B., Newegg
8 May 2007
  • Summary: For those of you having problems getting this scanner to work in W2k, or W2K-pro... Do this. Go into Control Panel, then Administrative tools, then Services....scroll down and find the "Still Image Service" Turn it ON, set it to AUTO. Your Cannon scanners will then work fine.
  • Pros: Small...cheap, acceptable output
  • Cons: Slow....quite slow.
