Canon CanoScan LiDE 100

 

When all-in-ones (AIOs) first started taking over from single-function inkjets in a big way several years ago, a lot of people predicted that flatbed scanners for home use would fade away. Instead, scanners have held their own, mostly by upping...

High-quality photo scans. Backlight correction. Color restore. Dust removal. Scan to searchable PDF format

Bundled software offers limited functionality. Relatively slow

The Canon CanoScan LiDE 100 is one of the few remaining scanners aimed at home users who are primarily interested in scanning photographic prints.

Canon CanoScan LIDE 100 Flatbed Scanner

 

The CanoScan LIDE 100 Flatbed Scanner works well with plenty of options to do a good job for home users. It's a little slow to scan, but that can be overlooked for the price.

Easy to use, with a nice low profile,compatible with Windows XP, this has many options to tweak your photos. This is the first scanner to offer an option to play music while you wait for it to finish

a little slow to scan

I like it. It's plug n play. Simple to use to get some old photos on the web. At this price, you cant go wrong.

Nice priceEasy to use interfaceVery light and thin

A bit slow... more for hobbyists than professionals

Little bugger just works and works.

 

Do yourself a favor and plug it directly to the actual computer and not to an USB hub, even if it's a powered USB hub.

Works like a charm. No A/C adapter to worry about

A Great Scanner!

 

I bought it to digitalize a bazillion of original documents for my thesis. There was an instance when I had to scan a 600page manuscript and was given only 2days for that. This thing scanned everything without complaining!

I am very satisfied with the piece! Very lightweight, compact, and uses only one USB cord both for power and data transfer. Makes decent images and what's more important for me - PDFs from scratch. Despite multiple comments about this scanner being...

Being picky here: 1) I wish the scanning speed was a little faster; 2) beware, it's all plastic! - which makes it very accident-sensitive; 3) the software is being "simplified" to the point when it gets too confusing; 4) the cord is quite short to make...

Canon CanoScan LiDE 100 2923B002 2400 x 4800dpi 48bit USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Interface Flatbed Scanner

 

Light weight, and doesn't take up too much desk space. Quality isn't as great but its not that bad either

The biggest issue I have with this scanner is that when it idles, it turns off. It might be good for people who turn their computers on and off but I leave my computer on all the time. After being idle, I have to unplug and replug the scanner which is...

Exactly what I wanted

 

Cheap portable scanner. It does exactly that :)

1) Portable - Pretty lightweight and thin and narrow. Similar to a laptop ; 2) USB Powered - Huge plus in my book ; 3) Fairly quick scans - I think a full letter size scan took me about 8-10 seconds? I'd say that's not bad for a small portable scanner :)

1) Software looks a little outdated but that's really a small con

works great

 

Used it to scan in over 400 photos from a family album. The photos turned out better than I had expected and scanning went quickly

It didn't load the photos for me

Hi-res and very portable

 

On Windows 7, install the driver, connect the scanner when it asks, then install the larger software download, then install the smaller...

Much quieter than my HP; needs no AC adapter. Scans quick and on high-resolution I get good detail. The slim body makes it perfect for any laptop user needing imaging on-the-go. Photoshop compatibility is good: the scanner is easily accessed and...

Windows 7 software not included; best installed if downloaded from Canon's site (they do include a 64-bit version). Software was a bit kludgy in that it had three separate installation pieces

Product Specifications

This is simple, high-performance scanning at its best. Four easy buttons automate the entire process, and the new Auto Scan mode makes it even easier: It actually detects the type of original you're scanning - a photo, business card, notebook or form - automatically adjusts settings for the optimal results, then scans and saves the image. Your results will amaze you, with color dpi resolution up to 2400 x 4800. You can also create fabulous 19200 x 19200 software-enhanced (extrapolated) scans. The Advanced Z-Lid enables clear, complete scans even of thick originals such as notebooks. Built-in retouching technology further enhances your final images with automatic corrections for dust and scratches, fading, graininess and backlighting. And to reduce the number of wires in your work area, one simple cable provides power and a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection.
