Summary: I bought this to replace my P-150, which I loved. I've usually had very good experiences with Canon products, but this one was a major disappointment. Pros: The software and scanner is easy to install & use. The image quality is on par with the P-150.
Frequently Pulls Multiple Pages, Requires Too Much Attention

Summary: I got this scanner for my legal practice so that I could scan client's documents on the road or at my desk. Although the quality of the scans are fine, it really doesn't serve its purpose because it often pulls in 5 pages or more at once.
BUYER BEWARE: Canon does not stand behind this product.

Summary: I bought this scanner for my Mac at home, got it set up, and it worked great. I decided to bring it to the office and use it on my Mac here instead, and realized I didn't have the CD that came with it anymore. No problem, right?
Summary: I wanted to like this product but it just did not deliver. Due to the position of the feed rollers (they not are located symmetrically throughout the document feeding area) this device has a tendency to pull items through at a slight angle and create skewed images. It is also not very durable.
Summary: My P-215 worked OK when new, but after just a hundred or so pages scanned, it's now having feed problems. Specifically it doesn't like to feed a single page or the last page in a stack. It will also sometimes feed multiple pages at once.
Summary: First scanner came with internal damage and was quickly replaced by Amazon. Second scanner is unable to scan more than one page at a time with a certain amount of fuss with each page. I presume it needs some kind of adjustment which I am at a loss to do.
Summary: I'm experiencing feed errors. Specifically, when there is only one page left in the feed hopper, it won't feed without a bit of a nudge on the paper. This occurs when trying to scan a single page or on the last page of a multi page scan job. This problem occurs regardless of paper weight.
Summary: I purchased this unit in Oct 2012, to replace a CANON P150M. This previous model worked so well at de-skewing that it wasn't even necessary to set the document guides for most documents, and even for thin receipts. On the CANON P215 it was immediately obvious that the de-skew software doesn't work.
Summary: I thought that this would be "plug and play". No. I tried it with a Macintosh and a Windows machine and neither of them recognised it at all. I assume that if I installed Canon's drivers it would work fine, but that's not good enough.
