Great Scanner


I have used this scanner each and every day for over a year without problem. This may not be the most expensive but it is the best you can buy for the price.

So far it's smarter than I am


I spent several hours on my one day off setting up and attempting to learn how to use this scanner. I am not tech wizard AND did work as tech support once, so I can work with clearly explained directions. As tech support for this scanner is not...

Great Old School Technology


This scanner is great for those of us who prefer the old school scanner technology. It's a better product than many that are more expensive. Canon retains its good reputation.

Better than the small handheld scanners


Does a good job with prints or slides, scans of negatives are overexposed and washed out. I bought 2 of these and the both do the same thing. Print scanner software is great and auto crops prints. The organizer software is clumsey and convoluted.

Good value


I bought this to do jobs where my all-in-one printer's scanner was inadequate. I'm scanning close to 1,000 old photos for a project and having scanned a couple hundred already I can say that it does indeed get the job done.This will scan several images...

Not bad, not bad at all


This scanner is great as far as scan quality goes and it has the ability to distinguish between multiple pictures when scanning. All and all I would recommend this to a friend.

Great deal for the money


This scanner does everything it says it does and it does it well. It's quick and quiet. It's also a solid piece of machinery. Works well with windows 7. Have had it for over a month and not a bit of trouble. The scans are clear whether color or black...

Solid and consistent photo quality scanner


This is my 3rd Canon scanner over the years and they just keep getting better. Setup was simple, load the software and plug it in. I have it set up on a KVM switch and it behaves well when switching between 2 Win 7 systems. So far, I've only scanned...

Good midrange scanner


Nothing special, but gets the job done. I use it mostly for scanning documents into PDF, and the documents are crisp and have good contrast, plus it's pretty quick. The only reason for my lower value and feature scores is the software. I admit to not...

Hard to beat for personal use.


I haven't any problems with this unit. Software is easy to install. Photos and copies sharp and crisp. Really like the ease of use. My old scanner was about eleven years old and was super slow.
