Glad I Bought This Item

Andrew Nottage, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: This scanner does exactly what I want. It scans multiple pages, skips blank pages, and can export to multi-page PDF. It detects blank pages well, ignoring random pen marks and even rust stains from staples I removed. It's easy to clean the scanning sensor and does not jam often.

A quick double sided portable scanner

Bob Clark "Frustrated gadgeteer", Amazon
1 February 2013
  • Summary: Upon setting up the scanner it's obvious Canon's engineers spent considerable time designing this device. The paper guides are simple yet functional and sophisticated. The scanner can pick up the colors yellow, green, red, blue, black and gray.

500+ documents scanned now

Jamie D., Newegg
7 January 2013
  • Summary: After owning my Canon for well over a year and 500+ documents later I would recommend it without hesitation. It's not perfect, it has froze a few times requiring a power on/off . Sometimes the paper gets askew but for the most part it works pretty dannn good.
  • Pros: I've owned this for over a year now and for the most part, I like it a lot. I've probably scanned well over 500 documents. It's really great keeping papers from accumulating on your desk.
  • Cons: Software a little clunky. Won't scan thick cards. Sometimes grabs 2 sheets instead of one.

Has it's quirks - but a GREAT Little Machine

D. Jockinsen ""Doc Doug"", Amazon
18 December 2012
  • Summary: I do a LOT of research before I buy ANYTHING! It pays off when the items are still up and running years and years later. This little machine is great! It stores in a cabinet on my computer desk. Out of sight, out of the way. Beautiful. I have used it to scan just about anything paper-based.

Works well, decent software

R. Freeman, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: I always dread the software that comes with consumer appliances, but the software with this unit isn't bad. You can configure the one touch button to direct scans wherever you want them (a folder, email, an application, etc), and it integrates really well with Evernote which was a critical...

Good for the value

Jeremy, Amazon
26 July 2012
  • Summary: OVERVIEW: I have been using the product for only two weeks, but have scanned over a thousand pages. I bought this unit primarily to scan large documents (i.e. notes from grad school classes, manuals, etc.), and so the duplex mode and ability to put a stack of papers in at a time were critical.

Good - but deskew doesn't work

Jonathan W., Newegg
29 June 2012
  • Summary: Other than the deskew being absent, this is a pretty solid portable scanner for helping you make the change over to paperless.
  • Pros: This thing is compact, has the software pre-loaded on it so that you do not have to install anything, and can auto-feed up to 20 pages and scans both sides in one pass.
  • Cons: The deskew feature doesn't seem to work, with the scanned text coming out at a pretty noticeable angle.

Best in its class

Michael S., Newegg
19 May 2012
  • Summary: After using this for a while I understood while the reviews on so many other portable sheet-fed scanners complained about vertical lines in their scans. This is due to a fundamental design limitation of this type of device: the sensor is exposed to the air, and therefore to dust and dirt carried...
  • Pros: Standalone sheet-fed duplex scanner which can be used on a guest computer, without admin privileges, without installing software or drivers. Acceptable speed, especially if you add power by connecting a USB wall wart to the (included) supplementary power cable. Decent scan quality (ser below)
  • Cons: Jams or complains on thicker media, including photos (this is a DOCUMENT scanner, folks). Tends to skew smaller originals (automatic skew correction marginally effective). Perfectionists will want to clean sensors frequently. Brightness of side 1/2 (duplex) not precisely calibrated, so alternate ...

Love the scanner.

Anonymous, Newegg
23 December 2011
  • Summary: Minor, would be nice if it could accommodate thick items (card stock). Wish Canon had included a useful software package instead of paperport. That cost one egg on rating.
  • Pros: Love the scanner. Love that it has built in software. Document feeder works well so far (max 4 pages in my use). The Canon software does a great job at producing searchable PDFs, my main use. I have not tried pictures etc, but I have a flatbed for that. My use is primarily for receipts, invoices ...
  • Cons: Hate the Paperport (Nuance) software. The interface is cluttered. If you try to work on file in it, it conveniently (not) moves the file to folder of its choice. I have files where I want them, leave them there. The worst is that I bought the scanner reducing paper clutter and creating searchable...
