Summary: Very easy to install and use. Scans both sides VERY quickly. The one touch capture software is very easy to use, you can scan to a .pdf or .tiff and save the file or email it without saving the image.
Summary: This is the fastest portable scanner we use. We take these on the road and scan literally thousands of pages with it. I highly recommend getting the Canon Care Pack for it. We contacted Canon for repair service for one that was purchased in 2012 (turns out it simply needed the rollers replaced, which can be changed by the user). Canon does not repair these. They simply provide an exchange for out of warranty units.
Summary: At first ... it was a real pain to use. The scanner driver constantly stopped working. It would even cause Adobe Acrobat to die when creating a PDF from the scanner. Very frustrating and almost unusable. We have a few of the previous model and it never had any of these problems. BUT ... Canon released new Windows drivers for it. And the updates fixed everything ! It's now our preferred scanner. Fast and easy to use.
Summary: I have owned a number of scanners, but this one is absolutely the worst. SAVE YOUR MONEY!! The first one I received would not work at all. I did return for a replacement and it only works intermittently. I have contacted Canon Support on numerous occasions and they have not been able to resolve the problem(s). This was a HUGE waste of money, but I will toss it (probably out the windo so it shatters into a million pieces) and purchase an HP scanner.
Summary: The Canon imageFORMULA DR-M140 Office Document Scanner is the second high-end scanner I've used. The other being the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 Deluxe Bundle Sheet-Fed Scanner . It's hard for me not to compare the two because I've been using the Scanscap for more than 3 years and I've been getting to know the Canon for less than a year now. And at twice the price of the Fujitsu I keep making value comparisons between the two products.
Summary: Before getting into this review, I have to admit that my expectations weren't very high for this little scanner. In our business, we use sheet-fed scanners extensively - and they need to be able to handle everything from stacks of paper to drivers licenses. The main thing that concerned me for this scanner was the paper path that flips the item over and ejects it back out on the top.
Summary: There are really only two virtues of this device. 1. It looks cute with is pastel buttons. 2. It is TWAIN compliant. Other than that, it is not that great. I had a lot of issue in regards to scanning credit card receipts as they would constantly jam in the feed mechanism. You do have the option to open up the back to create a straight throughput, but in my Dilbert-esque cubicle, there is no space towards the rear of the scanner.
Almost as good as Fujitsu .. software still defines ... although this unit is almost portable ...

Summary: OK - so I have used the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 Instant PDF Sheet-Fed Scanner for PC , Canon imageFORMULA DR-C125 Office Document Scanner , and a Xerox DocuMate 3125 Color Sheetfed Scanner for Documents and Plastic Cards converting them to Digital Files, 25ppm and 44ipm with One Touch Technology (XDM31255M-WU) . The Fujitsu Snapscan still receives my highest marks for the integration of an easy to use scanner with great integration of software (Adobe).
