Good high-resolution flatbed scanner but 35mm negative/film-scanning feature was disappointing

Dancing Feet, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: Pros: + Powers entirely off the USB 2.0 connection + Has hinged lid to accommodate books and thicker items + Has 9600 dpi optical scanning capability + Scan quality and software is good (let's you save in a variety of formats too) + Has 35 mm negative scanning ability in a pinch (but is poorly designed, so don't get it just for that) Cons: - 35 mm film scanning feature is badly conceived (fine for a handful of negatives but you wouldn't want to use it to archive hundreds...

vertical storage - amazing!

Awesomeness, Amazon
13 March 2014
  • Summary: I have a very tiny computer desk, so I was excited to find out that this scanner can store and scan vertically! The scan quality is great, although I'm not particularly fond of the scanning software - after saving my scans there is an option to "open file location", but it only show the location within the program rather than taking me to the actual location on my computer where I could then open the files in Photoshop.

Worked as advertised after having to troubleshoot software glitch

Frederick G.Barney, Amazon
15 October 2013
  • Summary: When I loaded the software provided, the module named Canon MP Navigator would not run. After troubleshooting for several hours, I called in my tech-savy son, who found the problem documented on a U-Tube video. After performing the fix described on the video, the program worked, and the scanner is fully functional.

Problem understood

Harry, Canon
7 June 2013
  • Conclusion: I have had this scanner for 2 years, using it mostly for pdf documents. I had a problem with speed and disfunction as mentioned in a number of the negative reviews. I learned that the cause of the problem was my USB port. When I used my usb extension port the scanner was slow and disfunctional. When I plugged it into my Mac installed port it worked fine. You might explore this yourselves in such cases.

Canon 700F versus Epson V370

William Sommerwerck "grizzled geezer", Amazon
18 October 2012
  • Summary: Last year, when my belovéd HP 4600 scanner bit the dust, I replaced it with the Canon CanoScan LiDE 700F. I've since received an Epson Perfection V370 Photo for review. Because they have similar features and pricing, I've decided to write a single review comparing and contrasting them. This review replaces the previous review of the Canon 700F. Construction ------------ The HP 4600 was a classic scanner.

wonderful until it broke

jt, Canon
17 January 2012
  • 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
