works well enough

garymontgo, Ebay

  • Summary: works fine for an inexpensive scanner. i guess could be faster and a document feeder would be nice but for occasional use, it does the job well. i have bought two now, one for myself and one as a gift.

Works well with 32 bit / will not work at all with 64 bit

etoncrow, Ebay
2 October 2013
  • Summary: BEWARE: It is impossible to obtain a driver or aftermarket software to make this scanner usable with any 64 bit machine. I purchased this item to scan old photographs and slides. It worked well with an older desk top and was easy to learn to use. It would not work with either of my laptops. Web searches suggested using VuePrint aftermarket software but further net investigation and personal effort proved the futility of that suggestion.

good cost-benefit

  • Summary: This product was bought for a very specific use, scanning negative films. It provides a good quality of scanning, but as an old product it has its limitations, wich are: - first it is really hard to install it, its compatibility is higher with old computers, if you don't have one you will need accurate skills in computation and patience. - second, it isn't a practical product, you need to scan negative by negative, one per time.

Useless on New PCs

KEVIN M. OCONNOR "Podcaster, Would-be Farmer,..., Amazon
23 April 2012
  • Summary: I tried just plugging and playing with a 64 bit Windows 7 machine. The computer detected the scanner but it indicated "troubleshooting required - device driver not installed." I went to the Canon website to download the required driver, and they don't offer one for Windows 7 (x64). This is legacy equipment that can only be used on legacy computers. This device is useless to me and taking up valuable real estate.

crap

frizbone, Amazon
26 October 2010
  • Summary: worked great for a few months, then never worked again. Wouldn't even power up. Wasn't worth it to try and return it since I bought it online. It literaly sat on a desk and was only used a few times and rarely even touched. Garbage hardware. Complete waste of money.

delivers at a very modest price

gaoshi1010, Ebay
15 December 2009
  • Summary: I was very pleased with results with this scanner that sold at a meagre 10% of list. As I purchased it without documentation and drivers, I had to use the Canon website for both, and was pleased at the ease of navigation on the website. I had a massively scaled down version of Photoshop, one bundled as freeware, and to my delight, all functions operated smoothly and intuitively.
