Excelent

rafael, Amazon
20 May 2014
  • Summary: This product is just what I needed. It is compact and very friendly. I was not requiered to install any software nor drivers. I use windows 8 and just dobled click an icon on the USB port where it connects. It opens a very simple to use menu though with the possiblity to scan almost all choices you want regarding one or two sides of a page at a time, ability to erase pages you do not want on the process meanwhile scanning, ability to choose among different saving options...

I love it.

Krystahl "Krys", Amazon

  • Summary: I love this scanner, it is so easy to use. Even if the picture goes in crooked it comes out straight. You can use it anywhere and it handles little pictures as well as 8x10's as easily. Just love it beats my desktop scanner in ease and speed. I can copy tons of pictures right after each other not much waiting then I download them to picasa and clean them up and crop if necessary. Delivery was right on time.

4 stars when it worked, 5 stars for customer support when it didn't

H. Chou, Amazon
14 May 2014
  • Summary: Got my scanner lat week, and scanned away. Autofeed, tho small (10 pgs), was good, and the scans were straight and sharp. Did about 100-150 pages in an hour or so. However, all the greatness stopped when it refused to feed documents yesterday. The rollers were still rolling, but the paper wasn't being fed through. After trying it on 2 different PCs and some swearing, I called customer support.

Doesn't work on Linux Mint 16

Anikin, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: The sane-canon_dr devs say that this has basic functionality under linux, but I couldn't get it to even detect. I checked to make sure the kernel scanner module wasn't loaded. I fiddled around with canon_dr.conf a little to try to get it to work through libusb. Didn't work. According to sane-canon_dr devs: "This backend was entirely reverse engineered from usb traces of the proprietary driver. Various advanced features of the machines may not be enabled.

  • Summary: Most scans wen through slightly skewed. I replaced it with the P-215 which feeds documents much better. I do not recommend this one.

Very easy to set-up and use.

Mon TYM, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: I will be using it mostly as a portable unit with my laptop to scan old pictures. I just set it up last night. It was very easy to set up and operate and it is basically plug-and-play. I scanned a few test pictures and the images came out perfect. So far, it fits all my need. I will give more reports later as soon as I am able to.

Kinda works, Kinda doesn't

Jonathan Chan, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: As of Feb 1st, 2014, the twain drivers, either bundled on the cdrom and grabbed from Canon's support site, do not work for Macs running OSX 10.9. I had no problem getting the P-208 to be recognized as a twain device on Mac running an older revision of OSX. The lack of twain drivers isn't a problem if you don't mind being stuck using Canon's no-frills software to scan documents. I also experienced problems with documents getting scanned in crooked more often than not.
