Summary: I was interested in this scanner primarily for its ability to be moved easily. It fits easily in a backpack and requires no power cord, instead relying only on a computer. Decent optics and image quality, especially for something its size.
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: 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.
