Summary: This was a great scanner until I upgraded my OS to Win 7. Cannon never invested the resources ( maybe 1 day) to creating drivers for this scanner to make it work with Win 7 or 8. Hence, a perfectly good scanner ends up in a landfill to pollute the earth.
Summary: Good older scanner for scanning photos and for scanning photos for family projects! I wish it had come with the start up disk and drivers :( What a pain to find and download !!!! Otherwise, good product Thanks !
Summary: I've had my 670U since 2001, and it's given me great service. It takes up very little space(still slimmer than many contemporary scanners), still gives great imaging for a 6 year old scanner, and, with a recent driver update, WINDOWS VISTA COMPATIBLE! This must be the best $[...
Very good basic scanner, but scanning results are variable

Summary: Pro: extremely lightweight - I've carried it on multiple occasions to the Library of Congress to use in research projects there (yes, they allow researchers to use scanners - and digicams too!
Buy this scanner, trust me! I grieved over the choice.

Summary: I was replacing a 5 year old 300 DPI Umax scanner Astra 600S. I am a product designer and scan at 150 DPI to 300 usually. I was addicted to the Umax interface and, when the Umax scanner's bulb started to go, I really read and re-read all of the reviews and descriptions that I could find.
