Summary: I got tired of scanning my wife's multi page documents one sheet at a time, then e-mailing the PDF files to her computer (30 ft. away). Found this Canon flatbed scanner, with 30 Sheet feeder, for her office. It is perfect for our needs. It's FAST! It's easy to use (even SHE has no problems). A 14 ft. USB cable keeps it just far enough away not to crowd her work space. A dedicated electrical outlet is advisable. No paper jams thus far, as noted on some reviews.
Summary: The Cannon DR1210C scanner is easy to install and to use productively for small volume scanning such as one generally has in the home. Specific jobs can be created to instantly access the settings preferred for that job and have the folder where one wants the files stored pre-selected. It scans as an email attachment and opens Outlook Express just fine. Other email handlers I have not tried.
Summary: Yes it costs more then a cheap home office ADF model, but the difference in quality speed and performance is massive. The people in the office call it the Cadillac of scanners, and considering the other scanner is a pretty decent Visioneer that is saying something. The software works amazingly well. The dot matrix is cool, and it really does 12 pages per minute even at settings you probably might even use.
Summary: En vista del suicidio de mi fabuloso anterior escaner HP, no ha habido mas guevosssss, que comprar otro trasto de estos, por culpa de las malditas facturas, que me paso escaneando media tarde. Buscando ofertas encontre este de la marca Canon, que se adapta a mis necesidades y se pasa, pero lo mas importante es la rapidez, que eso si me mola mazo. Un aparatito profesional que ya era hora, leches.
