Canon CanoScan LiDE 210 Color Image Scanner


The Canon CanoScan LiDE 210 flatbed scanner leaves out a film scan feature to cut costs without hurting photo scan quality.

High-quality photo scans. Fully automatic mode for easy scanning. Backlight correction. Color restore. Scans to searchable PDF format.

Extremely limited features in bundled software.

Good choice


I've replaced my old Canon scanner due to lack of drivers for windows 7, nice going Canon!This one is very fast and works very well. Most suprising is the cost for performance is very low.

Great scanner for pricepoint.


Owned 9 months. Windows 7 64 bit setup was a breeze for me and the software does exactly what it is designed to do. Would recommend to anyone.

Windows 7 Few Issues


Windows 7 x64 Driver install is messy, need to 'acquire' image via Paint Shop Pro, the canoscan software just doesn't do the job. Canon needs to stop making a scanner of the week and just focus on making what they have work. It looks like there are...

Excellent performance, but no Photoshop plugin


The unit is very light and compact. Scanning is quick and quality is excellent. I would have given it a top rating were it not for the omission of a Photoshop import plugin. Images must be scanned using Canon's software or Adobe Acrobat, then opened in...

It's just what I expected


I was looking for a scanner that worked easily with windows 7. My wife was driving me nuts since we installed Windows 7 because one button copy or scan didn't work. Software install was simple. There's no power needed-it runs on the usb power and it...
