Summary: The scanner was well packed, No burned out scanning pixels (e.g., no lines in the scans). It works GREAT! AND, we did not notice it, but two small plastic parts (paper guides) had been left out of the box, and without us even mentioning it to the seller, they sent them to us with an apology a few days later! VERY IMPRESSIVE SERVICE! Thank you very much.
Summary: Love the machine. Makes great scans. Software easy to use. Very fast for the price. But it's made of cheap plastic. Needs careful handling. Not something the kids can use. UPDATE--1 Year of moderate use (a couple of hours per week) and I have one problem. The paper hangs coming out of the scanner, so the bottom scan of some pages is not in focus.
Summary: If you're looking for an awesome scanner that actually feeds the pages you put into it through the feeder without pulling through multiple pages at random or if you're looking for a scanner that doesn't just randomly stop in the middle of a scan, then you probably don't want this one. It's easy to use, but it rarely works right - so I guess that just depends on what you actually need it to do (be easy? or work?). And do you have a lot of stuff to do with it?
Summary: I have purchased two of these for my office. They have both been nothing but problems for me and my co-workers. This scanner pulls numerous pages through at once, which means I have to go back and re-scan. It jams very easily again, b/c of pulling to many pages through. This scanner is just not worth the money.
Summary: This unit is way too unreliable for the amount of money it costs. Look elsewhere. On the other hand, I love my Canon 3080, which is more expensive, but is "bulletproof" and is much better in every aspect.
Summary: Got this scanner for a small office looking to go paperless. It is not only fast, but the resolution is great. It scans in just about any kind of document. It takes up very little space. Great price and quick delivery from Amazon. May be interested in getting a second at a later time.
Summary: Comments about Canon DR-2050C: We have bought 4 of these scanners for our tax office this year and have found them easy to use and a very excellent product. As a bonus, Adobe Acrobat comes with the software for free. Really eases the ability to work with pdf files and utilize more fully.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Resolution
Summary: I bought this scanner to replace my horrible Fujitsu ScanSnap FI-4110EOX2. After a week of ownership and 4700 pages scanned, I am delighted at how reliably the auto document feeder works. Most of my papers are damaged in some way (staple holes, creases, wrinkles, punched holes, or some combination of the mentioned). The DR-2050C handled most of them just fine, and far, far more reliably than my FI-4110EOX2. I would say I've had half a dozen jams so far.
