Summary: Love this scanner. Seems to work just fine with XP. The scanner comes with more software than you will probably use, but this is a good thing you get to choose what you want to use. I had an old CanoScan 620P that I had for over 8 years. I wanted to upgrade resolution and to the USB interface.
Summary: bought from newegg, did not work at all due to mechanical problem (would not unlock). Called Canon, had a new one in my hands in 2days. It is a very good scanner, with "tool box" that makes one button scans a snap. Works well with xp pro.
Summary: Superb scanner. Fast, high quality, stylish, compact, relatively quiet, and no power brick (it's powered by the USB cable). It seems to get along very well with WinXP and the one-button scanning actually works. USB 2.0 is definitely the way to go.
Summary: I bought this scanner to replace a Canon 1220U because of the speed difference and the ability to scanner multiple images in a single pass. The scans are cleaner than the 1220U with a lot less speckling. The multi image function works great.
Summary: Almost everytime that I buy something for my computer, I have to fight to get it to work. I'm a software Developer, so I know my way around computers pretty well. After struggling for 5 hours to get some new peripheral to work, I often wonder why non-geeks put up with it.
Summary: I will keep this short. My last complete review was not posted. I bought the Canon LiDE 50 from Amazon & installed the supplied drivers. The drivers do not support XP, & the Canon Toolbox is very buggy supporting PDF. Went to Canon's site.
Summary: Beautiful imaging quality, quick, quiet, small footprint. I'm impressed by the whole package. Works great with my Canon i550 printer. Quickest install of hardware that I've ever done. All function perform as promised (all buttons work, etc.). A very pleasant suprise.
Summary: This scanner has very nice features. It's very slim and functional. Image scans are fast and have good image quality. The ScanGear is very simple to use. You can scan multiple photos at the same time and have it on separate windows in Photoshop (not included).
