Low Cost Scanner - Lightweight - Works well - Easy to setup & use..

Summary: I've generally used HP or MicroTek scanners but was price shopping to replace a scanner broken by movers for the wife/mother-in-law. This Cannon is laughable lightweight and thin / flimsy. It has a 'prop-up' food on one side tends / contributes to items sliding away from the 'home' registration point. That said, the scanner works as advertised, the scan quality is good and it's easy to use.
Summary: I purchase primarily to scan multipage documents to pdf. The multitude of pdf buttons built-in seemed to make this the scanner of choice. Unfortunately, I found the default threshold for B&W documents to be set too low. It's not possible to adjust this in the Canoscan Toolbox program preferences. There is a work around that requires directly accessing scan driver, but this negates the advantage of having the pdf buttons on the scanner.
Sleek sexy scanner, but terrible software! Mac users avoid!

Summary: The CanoScan 600F is an incredibly sleek, thin and lightweight scanner. It's also quiet and can be used vertically. Another plus is that it requires no power cord. One simple USB cable provides both power and data transfer. It also has some remarkable automatic tools to restore faded photos. It can also remove dust and scratches by using a separate infrared scan. Pretty cool! Unfortunately, you have to use Canon's miserable software to access these features.
