not a workhorse scanner but great technical support

Summary: I used my scanner quite frequently and the scanning mechanism can be easily stuck if you put too heavy a book or documents or lay your hands too hard on the glass when you're pressing your book or document down on the scanner. As a frequent user, it DID last for nearly 8 months.
Summary: I have had my previous canoscan 1240NU for more than 4 years now and decided to give it away to an associate and purchased this newer model. The scanning is much faster, crispier but the noise is killing my ears. It is high pitch and loud too. This wasn't the case with my previous canoscan.
Summary: It's compact, speedy, doesn't require any power supply but USB, delivers good result for the money, but this thing produces very annoying high-pitch noise. I use it at work, at the collection of comments from my co-workers is growing fast.
Summary: On the basis of other reviews here, I bought the LiDE70. It lasted less than a day. I love this scanner for its slim size, feature set, speed, and software. I just couldn't take the sound. The gear to move the scanning head is... as loud as a coffee-grinder.
Excerpt: After years of use my Agfa finally packed up and repair, whilst possible, would have cost more than a replacement machine. I'd seen an earlier Canon and was impressed by the size and functions offered so bought the latest model. Very easy to set up, just run the cd and choose the full install.
Pros: small size, one button operation, no power supply needed
Excerpt: We purchased this scanner for our home last month. We needed a machine which would be useful for scanning a bucketful of old photographs which we wanted to preserve so needed something which would be cheap but fast and simple to operate. The Canoscan filled all of these criterea perfectly.
Pros: Fast, light, single cable, easy to use, does't take up too much room : D
Excerpt: We recently looked to buy a scanner, which would be used to make a photo into a digital image (for enhancments etc). We looked at a number of scanners available and found that there were a fair number available.
Pros: No extra power supply required . Easy to use .
Excerpt: I recently purchased a canon scanner for my husbands birthday. When trying to decide which to buy I took into consideration price , size, style and more than anything the specifications. We did also want something which was easy to get up and running and for a novice.
Pros: Looks good,slim, space saving,easy to use,good features,not noisy,good results
Summary: Gerät ist zwar eher etwas auf der lauteren Seite, aber sonst ganz ok. Jedenfalls stimmt das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Wie bei übrigens fast allen Canon-Produkten, wenn sie auf Anhieb funktionieren.
