A lifesaver for a blind students.

Bob Sminley, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: If you are a blind or visually impaired student living in the US, you may know that some colleges and universities do not have sufficient resources to get your books. The office may either be tangled up in red tape for months, getting sufficient copyright permissions for you to read the book (after which time you will have either lost the class altogether or found someone to help you) or learned that the book is simply not available in an accessible format.

Very fast and reliable -- an excellent value

Michael Knoll, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: Pro: 1. Very fast -- especially in black and white up to 300 dpi. 2. Scans 2-sided pages a fast as single-sided, essentially doubling the number of images per minute it can scan. 3. Compact -- doesn't use up too much space on my desk. 4. Reliable and durable. Mine has scanned many thousands of copies over six years of service. 5.

A perfect scanner for individual or small office - 7 years and going strong

Randall Stewart, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought the DR-2580C 7 years ago, a slightly earlier version than sold now. My task: scan 90 boxes of closed client files, about 250,000 pages, which I did over a period of 3 months. Given the poor physical condition of much of the pages, I was surprised that I didn't have more jams and double feeds. [Highly conpressed pages; damp pages, rusted staples, etc.] Thereafter, normal duty as been about 1500 pages a month.

A Workhorse Scanner

Robert Price, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: This is an amazing little scanner! Its easy to install, use, and configure. But what makes this scanner really great is that it never quits! I work for a small Allstate Insurance agency and we decided to go paperless last summer. After I set everything up, I used this scanner to successfully make our office paperless by scanning-in well over 5,000 pages of documents.

Super fast and adequately simple - 5 years in

Perullo, Amazon
16 January 2012
  • Summary: PROS: I'm always shocked to see how expensive this scanner is. I've had mine for five years already - purchased in December of 2006! i can't believe these aren't $50 a pop now and made obsolete by new technology, but alas. I actually think the price has gone UP, as I paid $580 on ebay. Maybe I got a great deal. In any event... I remember when I performed my first scan, I was shocked at how fast this little machine is. It really rips 'em through.

This scanner works

JustJon, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: I work with this scanner everyday. I have mostly used it for PDF scans. I haven't figured out the OCR function but I didn't install it on the CPU so my IT person may have left it out. But, I use this scanner for all types of functions other than OCR and it performs like a champ. However, I have had it jam. It was more operator than equipment error because I have had to pull some documents out of "File 13" and run them through.

SHAME on CANON!!

BAC, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: I have purchased 4 of these scanners for my document scanning business and EACH ONE needed to be replaced or repaired about a year or so after the purchase date. They DO work great for a year, but after that they jam or only scan half of a document. I have NEVER EVER written a "product review" on ANY website, but hopefully this review will save you from the disappointment & headaches I've experienced with this product (4 times).

Best Ever

Senior Hickey, Amazon
8 October 2011
  • Summary: I had previously purchased a Japanese standup, gravity scanner, and it would not work correctly with Windows 97. I ordered the Cannon DR-2580-C. When it arrived, I called Canon and told them I was not going to pay $700+ for a machine so small and, I thought useless. The representative told me to use it a week or two and if I didn't like it, she would send me my money back and add $50 + shipping. She called in three weeks and talked to me about the scanner.
