Summary: Completely satisfied with my purchase, and I don't say that often. I marked it down a star because of the white particles in those two pictures, but I really don't think you'll find better for the money (not even close).
Pros: It's hard to complain about something that's relatively cheap, easy to set up, and scans good enough to make a picky wife happy.
Cons: Had some white particles show up in a couple of pictures. Not sure why. We couldn't see anything in the picture or on the scanner glass that might cause this. But it's only in two pictures out of a bunch, so I don't think there's a need to raise the red flag over it.
Summary: Canon came out with 2 new models to replace the LIDE25 & LIDE90... The LIDE100 and the LIDE200 The new ones were cheaper based on specs. (as of 9/6/08) old: LIDE25 = 1200x2400 LIDE90 = 2400x4800 new: LIDE100 = 2400x4800 LIDE200 = 4800x4800 (those are optical resolutions, interpolated #'s are...
Pros: Slim, Quick, Works great! USB Powered = no extra power supply!
Summary: Replacement is no better. Paid more money and went back to HP which is excellent in both speed and quality. Will never buy another Canon scanner again!
Pros: Should have stayed with HP! There is no PRO with Canon scanners!
Cons: Own for less than a year! Used less than 3 times then the unit broke. It is a light weight cheaply made piece of garbage! Total rip off! Customer service SUCKED. Never got through and never answer email via their own site!
Summary: Make sure that when scanning pretty much anything besides photos (I use it to scan album covers), you should be using the magazine setting. Otherwise the black levels and color contrast don't come out so hot.
Pros: I love the fact that there is no power cord and it pulls just a few watts from the computer through it's usb cord. It's also so slim that it easily fits in my laptop bag. I'm so pleased with this scanner.
Pros: The speed is faster than the epson I purchased. The price was great. I can scan with the scanner on it's side with the bracket that came with it. It insalled with no problems. In 10 minutes I was ready to go. Love the fact that I don't need a power outlet for it. It's so quiet that you can't tell...
Summary: I replaced my old scanner with this one. Nice scanner. It blows my old one away. Scans quickly. I only need it to copy documents and to attach photographs to emails. The front "one touch" buttons come in quite handy, especially the "copy" button.
Pros: USB interface, sleek design, small footprint
