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...

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...

The best Scanner I have ever owned & the cheapest

 

Very easy to use scanner. but don't try to hook it up to a USB Hub!

Very easy setup, Makes great color copies. very easy to scan docs to computer

The USB cable that it comes with is to short

Consumer review by:

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

Consumer review by:

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

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.
