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

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).
Summary: My previous document scanner was a Fujitsu fi4220c. It was an impressive scanner and suited my purposes well. I think I used it for about 7 yrs, and its flatbed scanning assembly finally broke. So, I replaced it with the Canon DR-2580C, based on a review from PC Magazine.
Summary: i have used this scanner to scan 1000s of documents and labels without error, smooth and fast. It produces searchable PDFs in seconds. The down point is it can only hold 50 pages at a time, but at this price it is still a good bargain as it never jams
Summary: Gerät entspricht der Beschreibung, Lieferung super. Gebrauchtgerät hatte ca. 15000 Seiten gescannt (wie beschrieben), ist wie neu (auch die Einzugsrollen). Tatsächlich werden sogar mehrere geknitterte Tankbelege sauber eingezogen, ansonsten hilft die Ultraschallüberwachung.
Summary: Ideal for few copies a day, but no for intensive use. It is ultracompact, fast and double-side scanner. The included software is easy to use. On the other hand, I think it should include a bigger tray for the documents, so that documents did not have to lay on the table.
Summary: Mini encombrement - mini prix (tout est relatif) pour un scanner rapide à usage professionnel qui trouve aisément sa place sur un bureau sans l'encombrer. Bonne qualité de numérisation, suffisante pour de la bureautique - Souvent proposé en "bundle" pour de la GED.
