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. I have used the scanner to scan gas station receipts and legal documents. As another reviewer wrote, for some types of paper you'll need to krinkle the leading edge of the paper, otherwise you might get double feeds.
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. It works quickly and quietly. The lack of an output tray is simply handled by placing it to face the length of the desk.
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 requirement for me. The unit itself takes little space when folded up, but is very efficient when deployed.
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. It handles both of those well. CONCERNS: some of the images show notable skew/slant, even when fed straight.
Summary: We recently turned our home office paperless. I was able to scan all our bills and documents using this scanner while under the covers in bed! The things I don't like about it is that I cannot completely scan those extra long receipts that you get when you make several purchases at once. Also the scanner uses two ports on my laptop which only has three!
Summary: I purchased this scanner to digitize a variety of business and personal papers, and I've been using it heavily for a few weeks. This is my first scanner. It's meeting my needs and I'm generally happy with how the project has gone. I think I'd buy the same scanner again. However, things aren't as smooth as I hoped when I bought it. Pros: * The scanner seems fast, especially in the 200-300 dpi range. * I'm happy with the quality of the scans.
Summary: Ok, so I was debating between this one and scan snap s1300. I was not able to find/try scan snap but I can assure you they make good scanner products. Anyways, decided to go for this one instead because it took more pages, loved the fact that you dont need to load drivers, (just plug that puppy into any computer) and you are ready to go; was a bit smaller, more compact(did not have the slant/incline ending that scan snap has) and the fact that it was black.
Summary: This scanner is the best scanner I've ever used. The technology behind it is awesome. The design is very portable, it can scan directly to evernote, and the feeder even tries ti self correct. Even when I do feed the paper wrong it scans it the best it can. It detects and compensates for different size paper and slight tilts in the feed. Only one flaw... It can't do multiple pages. I scan magazine pages and business card and it can't handle a stack of either.
Summary: Just received the scanner today and got it set up without any problems and ran it through some initial scan tasks. Here are my initial thoughts: - Has great aesthetics, but the body of the scanner picks up fingerprints easily thanks to the glossy black plastic construction. - Had no problem installing the separator pad that some users forgot about or had trouble installing.
Summary: I've been using this scanner for six months and have come past my initial enthusiasm to a more settled satisfaction. The scanner is fast and gives results as good as any scanner I've owned--and I've owned a number over the years. Moreover, it's a classy little instrument--well-built, folds up into a perfect little glossy black box. I leave it on a window ledge in my living room and except for the cords, it doesn't look out of place.
