Canon CanoScan FB 630P

 

The CanoScan FB 630P is a good choice for anyone who wants an unobtrusive scanner capable of producing good-quality images. But if you need a scanner that you can upgrade to handle a wider variety of work, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Consumer review by:

A good scanner for the price.

 

Compact, fast, reasonable to good results.

Clunky software, occasional scanning 'artifacts'. Chunky power pack.
