Summary: I used this scanner along with Paperport for many years and was very happy with it. The resolution was fantastic. And ease of use cant be beat. However, after my computer crashed, I had to upgrade to Windows 7. I have Vista on my laptop.
Summary: This is a great little scanner but it is no longer supported by Canon. No driver updates for Lion. They will give you a discount with their loyalty program but you can (pretty much) find the same price online.
Summary: This scanner is listed on the Canon Support website as being compatible with Windows Vista, as well as having "complete" support under GNU/Linux with the plustek driver on the SANE project website.
Summary: Found this at a thrift store for $4, plugged it in, and started producing hi-res, crisp scans. I really can't say more except that the lack of power cord is a plus, and SANE is an excellent piece of software. Haven't had success under Windows yet, however.
Summary: I bought this scanner several years ago. This scanner can be a little workhorse . . . and sometimes, that's just what you need. It's lightweight, less than 3 lbs, easy to put in a backpack or purse, easy to hide & store if necessary. This scanner has become hard to find.
Summary: I purchased this scanner after checking several review sites. I use it only for home use (just photgraphs so far). I haven't had any problems with it in the 3 months since I have owned it. I purchased it along with U Lead's Photimpact 8 and have had excellent results.
Summary: I purchased the Canon 1240U scanner, a bit costly than those available in the market. But the quality of the pictures made for all that extra $$$ spent. This one is really sleek and light weight and doesnt need any extra power cables that hang around. I would strongly recomment this to anyone.
Summary: The Canon web site has been promising OS X support fro over a year, but they don't seem interested and have not responded to inquiries. Scanner is OK, but having to start Classic mode every time you use it gets old in a hurry. Mac owners beware!
Summary: This scanner is a really good one that scans with great detail. It doesn't miss a thing. And it is easy to use. My only gripe is the software included with the printer (Photoshop Elements). Just to let you know...it is REAL confusing to ge the hang of.
