Summary: We use Canon scanners and the CapturePerfect software successfully at work, so I decided to buy the entry level scanner for home use on a Windows 7 machine. I ordered through Amazon -- they were the least expensive, and the scanner arrived quickly.
Summary: Beware - Amazon claims this comes with Adobe Acrobat Standard software ($200 retail), it does not, it ships with some junk called eCopy Pro Office. Amazon customer service allows you only the choice of return or keeping it and contacting the manfacturer. False advertising!
Summary: Compared to the 40ppm scanners, these are great for light/moderate use. I actually bought one to scan photographs in large batches and it works awesome for that. Scans faster than I can feed them!
Pros: Use these in clinics and other medical offices for daily scanning. Will pull multiple sheets if they aren't fanned a bit. Quality is great, images look great. Cheap maint. kit (roller).
Curse you foul beast, and whatever engineer gave you birth!

Summary: This is a great scanner that gets abused daily. I simply scan the paper and manipulate it using the program. Some times paper gets jammed but its easy to take out the paper. Simple and easy to use. I recommend this product
Summary: I much prefer my Fujitsu ScanSnap but a certain application used at our office was not compatible and the manufacturer steered us to this Canon which is, but it is very temperamental and I am constantly being prompted to locate it when it goes "missing!' It makes great images, though.
Summary: I use this scanner at work, so take into account that I didn't shell out the money but I do use it on a daily basis. The scanner is terrific when it works properly, but it seems as though the product fails to function properly on a regular basis.
Summary: I was very frustrated when trying to get this scanner to work when I upgraded to Windows 8.1. The customer service email was confusing and I was disgusted. I finally called and connected with a person who was able to tell me exactly what to do. It worked!
