Summary: This scanner replaced an older canoscan that did not have Windows 7 drivers. I am very pleased with the results from this scanner...it is fast, gives excelent scans. Cannon has always had a better scanner than HP.
Summary: can lide 70 was much easier to use, software wise. this program is so freakin over complicated.....its not menat for the busy person who needs hours to figure out its filing system. the 70 was much much better.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) Every office needs a good, reliable flatbed scanner. I've long used Canon scanning products, and recently had to replace my old flatbed scanner after I accidentally stepped on it and broke the platen glass. The LIDE 70 is an excellent, general-purpose flatbed scanner. I use it for all kinds of documents like bank statements, magazine articles, my kid's drawings, etc.
Summary: easy to set up. quality of scanned items is great. a friend had this item and i liked it so much i bought one myself after they recommended. price was about avg. have enjoyed item. would recommend.
