Good condition, only needs USB power

Peter Baugh, Amazon
22 October 2014
  • Summary: Bought this used for $35. Good condition, only needs USB power. No software or manual, just downloaded that from Cannon website. B & W scans are very sharp. Only complaint- color scans are light, not as saturated as the original.

Don't Buy For a Modern Computer

Robert Andres, Amazon
14 October 2014
  • Summary: This thing is ancient. The installation disc says it will run on Windows 98 to Windows 2000 Professional. After inserting the disc my laptop informed me that the program isn't compatible. So it's off to the Goodwill.

Needs some file tinkering to work in Win7, but can do basic stuff fine.

Francis Santos-Viola, Amazon
30 August 2014
  • Summary: I recently found myself looking through Goodwill for a replacement for an All-In-One printer I had to leave with my roommate when I moved out of a previous apartment. I was lucky enough to score a (working!) Pixma iP90v to go along with this scanner, but the printer's another review.

Unfortunately, the scanner was broken when it arrived.

Clare, Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: I suppose it's always a good idea to ensure that a product is coming from a trusted seller. This scanner unfortunately arrived broken with the scanning mechanism jammed. Also, if you're purchasing this scanner, know that the software is not compatible with the newer versions of Windows.

Outdated device, quality not as well as expected.

JGreenberg, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Drivers are only available for Windows XP, does work easily with Linux, but the scan comes in with really poor contrast (or at least there is a whole vertical area of the scan that comes in brighter than the rest). Only good part is not needing a separate power cord.

Pay attention to the dates!

Tracy, Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: This purchase will go down in history as the one that taught me to always check the dates of the reviews. I bought it in 2013 cause it was cheap. But had to purchase VueScan as well so that I could even use it! The driver can't be installed on any computers beyond Mac OS 9. whoops!

It is still alive!

Farhana Karim, Amazon
13 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased it from a military post exchange AAFES store in Germany in December 2000. Now it is December 2010. I thought I should review this legacy product on Amazon, even though I did not buy it from here. It has been 10 long years and this scanner is still function as it did when it was new.

10 years old and still very useful !

B. Nyssen, Amazon
22 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this scanner in December 2000, so almost 10 years ago! It is flat and USB powered, so means you can take it with your laptop on the go. It is fast enough and quality is good enough too. Once you know on OS/X you have to install VueScan, this is just great!
