nice scanner, but...

Al C., Newegg
16 July 2009
  • Summary: We taped white paper to the background so that scans that took up less than the full area print white where there is no image.
  • Pros: Fast scans, good software, lots of features.
  • Cons: Black background on cover wastes ink and toner on prints.

works great - not for heavy usage

Debra B., Newegg
17 September 2008
  • 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.

Finally a scanner that works

George M., Newegg
13 August 2008
  • 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.

Great Scanner..period

James C., Newegg
27 July 2008
  • 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)

Easy to use, good price

Christin K., Newegg
16 July 2008
  • 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.
  • Cons: none, going to buy another!

black background

Philip N., Newegg
12 May 2008
  • 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...
  • Cons: Could have a lower price.

Front Buttons Don't Work

S. Sutton, Amazon
28 March 2008
  • 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.
