Summary: This is a fine machine. It warms up quickly and is ready to go. Windows 8.1 likes it. I like the 'copy' option that sends the scan straight to the printer. I found the OCR feature lacking. It made LOTS of mistakes, more than other (free) OCR programs that are available.
Summary: i recieved this really fast after odering it but it came damaged. adn when i say damaged i do not mean scuffed no i mean crushed into oblivion completly shatered unusable. i emailed the seller immediatly and they gave me a full refund which i am very greatful of still very sad that i dont get to use...
I hated it for the first five years, but it works now

Summary: I started off using this scanner with Windows XP, fow whoch it barely worked (the drivers and software were terrible). Then I bought a Mac, and the scanner was useless, as the drivers didn't work at all.

Summary: I am writing this review for the benefit of iMac users (flat panel) who have difficulties installing or re-installing the software. The trouble during installation is due to the lack of authority. Therefore, log in as system administrator and perform the installation as such.
Summary: I have used this scanned quite a bit. It quit working after about 8 months (still under warranty), but was repaired locally at no cost to me. It's been working fine lately, although I'm not using it as hard as I had been at the time.
Summary: I already used the CANON LIDE50 on my DELL Inspiron with Windows XP Pro. It worked alright and for all the features on Windows read the other reviews, as they are quite detailed in my opinion.
