Canon CanoScan 4400F scanner


The 4400F comes packed with easy to use features and plenty of scanning kit to help make the job easier and faster. The silver, grey and black livery looks nice and the swooping curves across the “advanced” Z-lid that also features the built in FAU...

Design, price, scan quality, QARE, bundled software

Flimsy and awkward to use FAU attachment, glass mounted 35mm slides not usable in FAU

The Canon CanoScan 4400F may have a few foibles but it can produce excellent scans and is very easy to use (barring that frustrating FAU adapter/holder) thanks in part to the EZ buttons. QARE and the nice software interface in either Canon’s Toolbox of...

Good Buy


Once I got the hang of it I could make very large multipage PDFs from scanned documents which is what I got it for. Wether there are better scanners out there for this purpose is probable, but the price was right.

I figured it out, but I'll admit I'm not very familiar how to use a scanner so it took me a couple hours of playing with it to get what I want

It seemed to have 5 different kinds of software that would create PDF's which was what I got it for. However, one allencompassing program would have made this much easier. I'm wondering if I should have just went with the LED version which was the same...

Does What I Need It To


I have had problems with double-sided documents having the text from the reverse side showing through. I'm pretty sure there's a way to fix this using the scanner driver, but I haven't figured it out yet.

Fast scanner produces quality results in both color and grayscale. Buttons are convenient (once you figure out the CanoScan Toolbox)

I am only giving this four eggs because the glass plate has a large blemish (looks like a smudge) that cannot be removed. I'm pretty sure it's on the underside, but I don't want to risk taking the scanner apart to try to wipe it off. So far this hasn't...

Good basic scanner


I haven't tried it for OCR as I don't really use that much, if ever. For basic scaning of photographs (haven't tried 35mm slides yet), it's done the job pretty well. I bought a refurbished unit from NewEgg and it looks brand new, though the box was...

I just got this to replae an older Canon scanner for which no Vista drivers are available. This installed easily and worked well. Some other reviews say it works only with the bundled photo editor but I got it to work with Paint Shop Pro by just...

Canon claims the scanner does 4800 x 9600dpi natively but none of the software I've used it with seems to allow you to set resolutions anywhere near that

Canon 4400F update by Sam


Buy one if you need a good scanner.

Scanner is still working fine using ArchSoft. Page Manager works good, also. The price of the scanner is good. You get you money's worth, even if you don't use the buttons on the scanner

The buttons on the scanner and the programs associated with them are confusing for me. I click on the Canoscan Toolbox and try to scan using the toolbox and it always comes back with insufficient memory. I then use the button on the computer and it...

Recertified: Canon 4400F USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Interface Flatbed Scanner


It has many options. I haven't used but one so far, but it appears to be doing a fine job on the test scans I have made. I had a Canon 660D scanner I was using, which is still working fine, but I wanted to upgrade to a newer model. I kept the 660D as a...

The scanner glass arrived dirty on the bottom side that can't be cleaned by the user. The Canon 660D was the same way when I purchased it, but I finally figured a way to clean it. I will probably do the same with the the 4400F. I think Canon should...

Canon CanoScan 4400F


Good range of "instant action" buttons. I bought this to scan 35mm slides which my previous scanner didn't do. Process is easy and the quality good.

Bit fiddly for doing hundreds of slides! (My wife wants them out of the cupboard!)
