Canon CanoScan D660U

 

This CCD-based scanner offers attractive color for Web images and a film adapter, but its performance is slightly sluggish.

The CanoScan D660U will appeal to value-conscious buyers who are willing to trade slow scanning speed and a lower optical resolution for the included transparency adapter and a big software bundle.

Don't buy it, unless you don't care about having dust under your glass

 

Don't buy it, unless you don't care about having dust under your glass, messing up your scans. It was easy to install and use and is slim and takes up little space, but it's fatally flawed by the dust and I'm not the first and only person to complain...

Easy to install and use.

Dust under the glass.

good budget photo scanner

 

I've been using this scanner for almost a year now to scan photos and I'm very happy with it. It's very solid, competently fast and works flawlessly. It's only drawback is that the glass is dirty underneath,and this seems to be a common problem with...

Quality photo and document scans, good negative scans

Dirty glass, unacceptable slide scans

Consumer review by:

Nearly Perfect

 

This scanner is fast and efficient, and won't clutter your already over-crowded desk. Unfortunately, this also means that the scanning area itself is relatively small -- this is fine for uses who work mainly with snapshots and documents, but as a...

Small footprint, easy to use and install, no bugs

Small scanning area, image orientation non-intuitive

Great quality, scans 35mm negatives

Best Bang for the Buck

 

When I was in the market for a negative scanner, I was astonished at the prices. I went online, and I found just what I was looking for; a flatbed scanner and a negative scanner all in one, at a great price.

Great quality, scans 35mm negatives

Can not scan slides, or other transparancies and film types

Consumer review by:

Not worth it for film/slides.

 

Best Buy accepted my return.

Lousy picture quality (scanned slides)
