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. However this infrequent problem does not effect our overall satisfaction with this scanner.
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). We've expanded to 3 more units since testing out that first one; all of them still function (some misfeed more than others).
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. So far, it had performed perfectly for my purposes. I am a physician and want to digitize many medical records from my solo practice to save space. I also OCR many professional articles that I study.
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. Hochglanz-Visitenkarten gehen nicht durch den Einzug (zu glatt), aber damit kann man leben. 1 Punkt Abzug, weil es kein Handbuch gibt, aber das liegt ja am Hersteller. Gerne wieder!
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.
