Review: CanoScan LiDE200 flatbed scanner

 

This flatbed scanner is speedy and affordable.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 200

 

Canon CanoScan LiDE 200 flatbed scanner is compact, quiet, portable, affordable and energy efficient. See where it ranks at TopTenREVIEWS.

One year of toll-free telephone includes telephone device for the deaf

Product does not support transparencies or Optical Character Recognition

ENERGY STAR qualification does not atone for the shortcomings of this flatbed scanner.

Great scanner!

 

For the average user, this scanner will do fine. Works with Vista and W7 64-bit.

Compact ; Quiet ; Inexpensive ; Works with Windows 7 64-bit

Bundled software could be better

Not impressive. Look elsewhere.

 

I have used scanners since 1991. I have used cheap (as cheap as they get) scanners and I have used extremely expensive scanners. This scanner is not impressive, in fact it is one of the worst scanners I have ever used. I have owned much cheaper...

Very small, light and very easy to install. Software is OK and not complicated to use. Decent but dated styling ; Target user: older people with bad eyesight and fat wallets

Noticeable vertical banding throughout the scanned images about 3 pixels wide ; Canon boasts 48bit color depth, but this is either a blatant lie or a well hidden feature ; Mechanical sound is a little harsh ; Not the fastest scanner out there

Great unit for the money.Win Xp 64 bit users will like!

 

4 buttons make this unit easy and fun to use.You can scan in a document or photo and preview it on your monitor with no problems at all. The copy function works fast,and sends a crisp-sharp image to the printer.The email function lets you copy and...

Easy to use and will work with XP 64 bit with some downloading from the Canon ; site. Load drivers first,then hook up scanner with one usb cable and you are done

Windows XP Pro 64 Bit users will have to download drivers and associated software from the Canon support site. This scanner will not scan film negs. and will ; only scan one page at a time.No accessories are available as of today

Great Scanner

 

Scans fairly quickly, roughly 10 seconds or less a page. I'd imagine it would be longer for a higher dpi setting, but the quality on the default setting is more than sufficient for my purposes, and I'm very happy with this product overall.

A huge perk to this scanner is it does not require an external power source: the data and power is utilized through a single USB cable. Comes with a stand. The stand props it up on its side...its about 15-20 degrees shy of a right angle, allowing...

Bundled software isn't great by any stretch of the imagination, but it does work on Windows 7 pro 64 bit. There is even a little piece of paper included telling you how to ensure it installs properly on Windows 7/Vista. The software interface is a bit...

Consumer review by:

good scanner unless ur on win 7

 

Ended up using 3rd party software. If anything, it's an improvement over the original software.

Scanner itself works great. We were on WinXP when we started using this and it served us well for the price

Recently upgraded to Win7 - not supported by the scanner software

Inexpensive, compact and effective

 

These inexpensive little Canon flatbeds are much better than the ones in an all-in-one printer (to my eval) and will do thicker media such as books. Compact enough to sit next to your monitor and always ready.

Very affordable ; Excellent scan speed for a compact flatbed scanner ; Very good scan results ; Adequate software (it really hasn't changed much from my the software that came with my 5 year old canon N1220u scanner, but is much faster). The scan speed...

Somewhat poor text scanning. Works better just to leave it on color/auto at 300+DPI

Product Specifications

How easy is this? Just select what you want to do with your original-scan, copy, or create email attachments or PDFs-and the entire process is automated. The new Auto Scan Mode detects your type of original, then scans and saves it with the optimal settings. Your results will be outstanding, with color dpi resolution up to 4800 x 4800, and you can also create fabulous 19200 x 19200 software-enhanced interpolated scans. Plus, a letter-sized color scan takes only about 14 seconds. The Advanced Z-Lid lets you produce clear, complete scans of thick originals such as notebooks. And to reduce "cable clutter," one simple cable provides power and a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection.
