Summary: This scanner will break your heart. It is made out of such flimsy plastic that any untoward pressure on it will cause it to seize up. For 80% of scans the moving scanning part will get stuck and seize up as it reaches the 66% mark on the screen surface.
Summary: I was in need of a scanner for my laptop, as the interface with my HP7XXX series all-in-one sucked as far as scanning went. After much review reading here and at Newegg, I decided that for the cost the LiDE90 was probably what I was looking for.
My only real need was to scan B&W documents for work.
Summary: Purchased this scanner since previous HP scanner was not compatible with Vista at all. This scanner was a huge improvement. The scan quality is good and it doesn't take up much space on my desk as well.
Summary: I got the device. I scanned 6 pictures. That's all.
Just a week after, I tried to use the scanner. The mechanism jammed at midway, making this "particular noise" I know, the noise that let you know that device simply screwed up.
I believe I did not handle the scanner inappropriately.
Summary: I'm a bit disappointed by this sleek scanner. It's advantage is that it is thin/light and doesn't require a power brick - it is powered by the USB connection. The quality of scans are good. Control thu the TWAIN interface (if you can access that) is good. It accepts pages up to 8-1/2 X 12.
Summary: This scanner met my expectations. Choosing what software to install can be confusing, but I installed all, and after testing each one, I uninstalled what I didn't need (I kept the driver and PhotoStudio 5.5).
Summary: Comments about Canon CanoScan LiDE90 Flatbed Scanner: I needed a scanner so I could do personalized letters to my family for Christmas. I bought this one and thought that it worked very well for the price. I was able to scan in the picture that I wanted and had the best Christmas card every.
Pros: Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Resolution
