Summary: I have had this scanner for less than 2 weeks. During the 2 hours it worked and was in use, I loved it. Unfortunately, those 2 hours were an exception. First, the scanner arrived with a dysfunctional power cord. It was one of those cords in that needlessly comes in 2 parts, that has to plug into itself. The problem was, the two parts did not match, even though they came together in a single sealed plastic bag.
Summary: I made a mistake and bought this scanner assuming I could use it on my Intel Mac. No such luck. I'm hoping I will be able to use it with Parallels Desktop or Boot Camp. Canon should realize that lots of people own Apple computers now. I would prefer not to give this a star rating, since I really have no way of evaluating the scanner at this point. But I have to according to Amazon's rules. So: one star for a scanner I can't use.
