Summary: ...broke down after about a year and little use: less than 1000 pages scanned for sure. Scanner now just says "unknown error" when scanning documents and that is that. Minus points also for non-exisating user support and inconveniences with drivers (same like those cheap Chinese OEM devices: ugly, uninformative and shabby.
Scanner works well but not easy to scan to Evernote
10 August 2010
Summary: The scanner is promoted as being programmed to scan directly to Evernote. This was the primary reason I purchased it. Unfortunately, its not set up to scan right to Evernote and when you call the Canon support line for help, they don't have a clue what you are talking about.
Summary: As a college student, I live in a pretty small space. I also have to move around every year when I change dorm rooms and pack up for the summer. Because of this, and because I just don't like clutter, I've always scanned my notes each semester and then recycled the paper. This used to mean getting through 3 pages a minute on a flatbed scanner, so scanning all my notes at the end of the semester took me 2 or 3 days.
Summary: Let's start with the good. It's lightweight, scans relatively quickly, and the included software allows one-buttonquick scanning for dead easy usage and file formats such as PDFs and JPEGs. It has an auto skew correction feature and duplex scanning, both of which are great for scanning documents. The problem is the feeder is a temperamental beast that has a will of its own.
