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.

Works Well but inexplicably high priced

Jack C., Newegg
7 August 2011
  • Pros: This scanner works very well. Document feeding is fast and I have had no difficulties with feeder malfunction except in rare situations when I put documents in that are in very, very bad shape as an experiment. Have scanned insurance cards and stacks of documents without a hitch. Highly recommend...
  • Cons: The only con is I think the scanner is overpriced by about $200, listing at $900 and selling here for $750. Although you are very happy with the scanner, you have a sense that you paid too much for it. I would be happy with closer to $400. I have not yet purchase the flat bed, but that adds furth...

Canon DR 2580C

johnny, Amazon
10 July 2010
  • Summary: This is the second Canon scanner we have purchased. The compact size and sheet feeding is very convenient for scanning multiple documents at a work station. The only drawback is a few misfeeds likely due to having to pull documents into the scanner from the desktip rather than vertically.

Good scanner

Dominique B., Newegg
23 March 2010
  • Summary: for small to medium volume this will work very well and fast. If you think of something that will last very long, then there is probably stronger models somewhere.
  • Pros: Scan very well, low maintenance (only some roller at each ±100 000pages depending of paper quality (dust or other)). had DR 3580CII that is a bigger one and users prefered this smaller version.
  • Cons: don't like stample! it sratch the glass and hard to find replacement for that. We used them for imaging system and I got 2 units that ended with part of the sheet not showing anymore. I replace the scan "optical eye" with another one that was ok on another scan but same problem so I guess problem...

aging reasonably well...after four units, wouldn't mind a successor

Donovan G. Rinker, Amazon
5 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought one of these in late 2006 while shifting my office (15 employees) in a paper-less direction. That unit works well, and after 10-200 pages per day, it's still churning along (occasionally misfires, but it's still more reliable than our relatively new HP 7580 multifunction unit).

Vista compatibility

Michael S., Newegg
24 February 2009
  • Summary: We have 4 of these and I've heard no complaints. Some others say the rollers wear out, but they make a replacement kit for them.
  • Pros: This scanner is quick and does a reasonable job for everything I've thrown at it. Quality is good for office documents. Everything is easily accessed.
  • Cons: I haven't been able to get the function buttons to work with Vista. The 'unique' folio mode is just marketing spin.

I like it

Brian S., Newegg
9 November 2008
  • Pros: It's fast for the price! It scans all sorts of stuff and the software is smart. Be sure to visit the Canon Europe website for the newest software & Drivers.
  • Cons: Sometimes the scanner doesn't think paper is loaded. Sometimes the software will not recognize the scanner is attached. Both aren't too crazy

User Review

Brian S., Newegg
24 August 2008
  • Pros: Fast, reliable, feeds well - never had an issue with it. It also scans to pdf with the Canon software.
  • Cons: Software is goofy - if you abort a scan, sometimes you have to reboot to get the software to release the scanner.

Huge Time Saver

Baxter E., Newegg
29 April 2008
  • Summary: Works great with Adobe Acrobat 8 pro. I just wish I could feed more than 50 pages at a time, but it's still better than what I was doing...
  • Pros: This thing is quick. I did a 25 page document on a flatbed, and decided to get one of these based on the reviews. Works like a charm out of the box. Has a small footprint.
  • Cons: I had a problem with the rollers getting out of line and feeding pages through crooked. I just had to push them back in place-- took 2 minutes. If it weren't for that it would have gotten five stars.
