Can only scan 8x11, letter sized and smaller

Tracy Lemon, Amazon

  • Summary: When I did the product search I put in the search box "scanner 11 x 17" and this was the first listed. I read over all the reviews and information but it never mentioned anywhere that it could only scan up to letter sized. So I was disappointed and had to ship it back because I need it to scan larger old photos. I never used it so I don't know how it's quality scan is.

OK, but I need other benefits.

  • Summary: Regrettably, the scanner isn't what I expected. It works well but I need something different. The CanoScan LiDE700F isn't the ideal scanner for negatives and it's not possible to scan slides.

Great scanner and it's best quality is portability, but it's slow.

  • Summary: I bought the scanner and it works very well. It's nice not to have to plug in a power adapter every time I use it. It works well with Mac OSX Lion and Snow Leopard. The reason I gave it only 3 stars is because it takes very long to do high quality scans. At 4800Dpi, it takes about 10 minutes to scan an image. Too slow for me.

wonderful until it broke

  • Conclusion: This was a wonderful scanner for the money and for the size. The software is a bit clunky, and had odd defaults but works just fine. The photo and document scanning quality and speed are superb. Mechanical failure 3 months after the warranty expired means it's going straight to be recycled.
  • Pros: top quality
  • Cons: mechanical failure 3 months out of warranty

Disfunctional USB implementation

Doc, Amazon

  • Summary: The CanoScan LiDE 700F is a decent low priced scanner that works with a Mac right out of the box, except that the USB connector has to be unplugged and replugged in to reset the scanner every time the Mac wakes up from sleep.

Unefficient!

Edward Bearer, Amazon

  • Summary: Does what it says, however, it's extremely time consuming if you plan on scanning 35mm negatives! I wouldn't buy this product. Spend the extra money and buy one that is faster and more efficient!

could be better

  • Conclusion: Lame image editing software is crippled - a double negative. At least include the full version! Can't scan 35mm slides, they must be removed from mounts to even be in focus. 35mm negative scans are slooooowwww. But the quality is okay.
  • Pros: easy to use, Fast Connectivity, single usb cable for power
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, poor film handling, no 35mm slide support, poor photo editing software

Ok for normal office tasks, very limited for films, REVOLTING for slides

  • Summary: After 6 months of use, I feel that I have to give everyone my opinion about this little scanner. As many around, I was driven to believe that this scanner was able to process films and slides. It is true that in my mind, I could not imagine that a brand such as Canon would make a scanner able to scan films but not mounted slides. Nevertheless this is the case here. BEWARE THIS SCANNER CANNOT SCAN MOUNTED SLIDES!!

Scans well but some key parts are not very durable

David Smith, Amazon
23 July 2009
  • Summary: The scanner does a good job and it's great that it doesn't need a separate power cable. The main drawback I've found is that the hinges for the cover depends on a tiny little plastic nubs that are easily broken off.

  • Conclusion: Pros: Inexpensive & easy to set up. It produces a decent image and can be fast unless you want to increase the dpi. Cons: Lid is very flimsy. The instructions on doing film strips/slides is a joke. There is a detailed image of how to plug in the film adaptor unit but almost nothing on how to position the slide or film strip. You have to experiment with it to figure that out yourself. If you can do 10 slides/film strips in a hour you are quick.
  • Pros: Fast Connectivity, High resolution
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction
