Pros: bought for an office to scan all customer invoices. scanned several hundred thousand lightweight pink forms for 1.4 years. died due to a controller/sensor error. would "JAM" and stop scanning then go ahead and feed the page out. out of warranty so simply bought another - great performance for the...
Pros: just purchased our second unit. our first died after about 1.4 months HEAVY duty scanning. we use it to go paperless with our customer invoices - scanning several hundred thousand pages. our invoices are pink very lightweight tear off sheets but the ADF handles them fine - just have to watch for ...
Cons: too bad our first died with controller/sensor error but overall great performance considering how heavily we use it. we switched to using a new version of omnip@ge for much better scanning performance.
Summary: I note that someone else complained about jams with the ADF BUT this is what happens if you connect to a USB 1.x interface because the paper moves too slowly - it really wants the USB 2.0 interface to work right... as specified. I used a low-cost Rosewill add-in USB 2.0 card and it works fine.
Pros: This is a great scanner for a workgroup that has low to moderate volume - its quality and speed is good enough that it saves a walk to the copier for quick copies. Set up is flexible and the buttons can be programmed for straight to print or for storage in various file formats.
Cons: The OMNIPage software which comes with it is too limited to be much use and keeps nagging to "upgrade" to the full version. The Acrobat works fine though if you make .DOC files, it's a little hit or miss on vertical spacing.
Summary: Total workhorse...not industrial grade, but more than sufficient for a small commercial and/or home office. Of the ADF/flatbed scanners available this is the one to buy..and it only costs a few more dollars than its entry-level counterparts
Pros: Great price, high-quality, and durable scanner with great software included.
Cons: Like any non-industrial grade scanner, can suffer misfeeds/jams, especially when scanning certain media (e.g. thin paper)
Summary: We bought this to scan in piles of files. The feeder made this job a breeze. The easy to use software made scanning batches of files very easy! I use adobe acrobat extensively with this machine, so may not be so easy for me to use without that application.
Pros: Easy to use Feeder, good software, Finally got rid of the fax machine! good customer support.
Pros: The black background is an awesome feature if you are copying two sided material. With a white background, you often get "bleed through" from the other side. A black background greatly reduces this. I would say that most of the time, a black background completely eliminates "bleed". All other sca...
Summary: We bought this scanner because of the ADF for imaging all our office documents. However, the front buttons don't seem to work. I believe it's because it's connected to a computer with Vista. Canon doesn't have an updated driver to be compatible with the new OS.
