Summary: I use a very expensive scanner at work and this Canon one processes things faster than that one. The only negative I can say is it is a bit cumbersome in it's filing of the scan after it has scanned it. A few extra steps needed to make sure the document ends up where I want it. But all in all I would absolutely recommend it to friends.
Summary: I wanted a scanner that I could feed much larger stacks of paper through, and scan in duplex with the click of a mouse. I scanned a lot of docs closing out a family estate and I never even once fed this thing a stack of paper that it could not handle. The "U" paper path was really nice as well. Only a when I occasionally scanned some considerably thicker documents did I switch to the straight through paper path, which also worked perfectly.
Summary: At first I had some problems and most of the software is of no value - wish it were better. However, the "Scan Direct" program is easy and simple to use and this will serve most of my purposes. The machine is fast, easy to file after scanning and I really like the 'paper catcher' - though I usually grab them as they come through. All in all I love the machine and would recommend it. Just hope Canon offers some updated and easier software for more advanced use.
Summary: I use this scanner daily. Call me old school, but I was amazed by the speed of scanning (both sides) and the amount of pages I can scan at one time. I would have given it 5 stars if the software they provided offered a scanning option of black and white.
Summary: Very easy to use and fast. I use it to file all my monthly bills. Expect to clean out the file cabinet at next opportunity. Did notice that it doesn't always correct skewed copies perfectly. It takes a couple of tries with originals that have many "wrinkles". Software is simple to use. Highly recommend if you desire reducing your paper files.
Summary: I bought this scanner "used' through Warehouse Deals. It arrived without the AC adapter and usb cord. However, Amazon.com handled the situation very quickly and to my satisfaction (I got a partial refund and kept the product and got an AC adapter on my own). After getting the scanner working about a week later than planned, I found the set up and software installation to be of moderate difficulty.
Summary: The scanner is fast & seems to scan whatever I need, but the software is not the most user friendly. For example, I still do not know how you would use the "assign button". The instructions and use of other buttons is obscure. I did a lot of trial and error to learn how to use the scanner, and am still not comfortable with several functions.
Summary: Finally went to paperless office and this scanner has been perfect. It is fast, rarely gets clogged up and handles sizes from small gas receipts to legal size paper with ease. Mine came with Paperport Version 10 which has a few bugs but overall has been ok for organizing scanned output. I would recommend this scanner for small to mid sized offices.
Summary: Overall I have been very pleased with this scanner. It is very fast and provides excellent quality scans with the option to delete any page before saving. The software is adequate for me but may not suite somone who expects automatic professional sorting etc. The unit is very compact, runs quietly and accepts a wide variety of document types and sizes. I consider the other reviews that I have read to be mostly accurate.
