Pros Excellent scan quality, small, fast, quiet
Cons Can't scan negatives
Summary I have been looking for a decent scanner ever since my Acer Prisa 620ST. Unfortunately, during that time I have owned three HP scanners which were all junk. I had almost lost all hope when I read the reviews of the Canon and decided to give it a shot. My faith has been restored. This is a low profile, super quick, ultra quiet scanner for a comparably low price. Setup and installation was a breeze. The included software is highly functional and easy to use, and the scan quality is great. There is virtually no lamp warm up time. The USB 2.0 connection allows for quick image transfer. There is no power switch to flip, no AC adapter to go bad, just 4 buttons and a nifty Z lid that allows for bulkier items. The LED lamp should outlast the scanner mechanism and it also allows for the scanning of reflective surfaces (i.e. CDs) without color distortion. All this for under $80 and it’s an easy choice. Don’t waste your money on higher priced scanners, this one is a winner!
Pros good quality fast out put at 300/600dpi
Cons lousy archsoft photostudio no negetive scanner
Summary This is the perfect scanner for me small, usb2 no addition power supply, compact, fast high quality output, to back up numerious aging vacation/personal photo prints. I really dont have a need for negetive/slide scanner Ive got hundreds of prints I want to transfer to pc for back up and the speed and mulitiscan features (ie up to three 4x6 prints in the same scan)help speed the archive process. Another huge postive is canons twain / canonscan tool box drivers are very stable (over hundred scans no cashs). The only cloud is the archsoft photostudio but thats easly fixed with a varity of superior photo software. Right now Im importing the canoscan 35 scans to the freeware picasa2 with zero crashs or conflicts producing excellent results. Hey I know this is the scanner not for everyone (ie professional photographer or someone with a ton of negtive/slides and no prints) But for the average home user wanting to backup badly aging prints this is a great deal especially sense I got my at frys and with rebates it was only 39.00 usd. BTW the other feature that works great to like the grayscale copier it works great with my old hp 932c printer. All in all a great deal.
Pros It's small enough to be portable (and it has a locking mechanism so you don't damage the scanner), yet it is still a quality scanner. It's easy to hook up and install the drivers/software. And you only need one cable to hook it up, so if you have your p
Cons I haven't found any yet. I love it. I use it with a Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop running Windows XP.
Pros USB 2 for power so no other connection cables needed. Very compact & light. good result scanning, straight forward, no useless options
Pros I have SuSE 9.2 just installed and can't get it work :( If there is any solution, then I would like it to know (send me an e-mail - email@example.com) :)
