Review: CanoScan LiDE200 flatbed scanner

 

This flatbed scanner is speedy and affordable.

Offering 4800 dpi optical resolution and 48-bit color scans, the LiDE 200 can handle originals up 8.5 by 11.7 inches. It offers no transparency scanning capabilities

Canon CanoScan LiDE 200 scanner

 

But the Canon CanoScan LiDE 200 has some drawbacks, including skimpy OCR functions and the inability to scan transmissive items (such as film).

Speedy performer, Compact design

Doesn't scan film, Limited OCR features

The Canon CanoScan LiDE 200's main limitations are that it scans only reflective items (no film scans) and it can't do much in the way of OCR. We were able to create searchable PDFs and plain-text (.txt) files from various documents, but we couldn't...

Canon CanoScan LiDE 200

 

The slim LiDE200 is the latest in Canon's successful series of compact and inexpensive CIS (contact image sensor) scanners. It has a maximum optical resolution of 4800x4800dpi, enough for photographic enlargements, photo editing and serious image...

Scanning on a shoestring. Fast, cheap and light, a handy all round scanner.

A Standalone Scanner : Canon CanoScan LiDE 200

 

While many users will be content with the scanner module that forms part of an All-in-One device, better quality can be achieved with a standalone model.

Adding to its range of standalone flatbed scanners, Canon has released its CanoScan LiDE 200 model. This colour image 48-bit scanner offers a resolution of 4800 x 4800 dpi that can be expanded to 19200 dpi through the use of software as part of a...

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...

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.
