Expert review by:

Canon CanoScan LiDE 60

 

This compact scanner is inexpensive and reasonably fast, but getting good image quality takes some tweaking of settings.

The small Canon CanoScan LiDE 60 is best suited for budget-minded users who want an easy, unobtrusive, and undemanding scanner.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 25

 

This svelte scanner's low price isn't enough to offset its pedestrian speed and lackluster images.

The Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 is very inexpensive, but its compromises in speed, quality, and features make it hard to recommend.

Canon CanoScan Lide 30

 

Slim scanner makes vivid, accurate images but takes its time.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 25

 

As you might expect from a scanner that costs only $49.99 (direct), the Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 is a minimalist package. The hardware is limited to basic flatbed scanning, without such extras as an automatic document feeder (ADF) or slide-scan...

Low price. Reasonably good-quality scans for photos. Color-restore feature for faded photos. Batch-scan option. Simple interface for beginners and an advanced interface for better control

Minimal software bundle includes only a photo editor and light-version OCR program. USB 1.1 connection limits scan speed

The Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 is a no-frills package, offering relatively slow scanning and bundled with only a low-end photo editor and a special-edition OCR program. But it handles photos surprisingly well for the price, and includes such welcome...

The Canon CanoScan LiDE 35 delivers more than you might expect given the price tag of just $80 (direct). The maximum 1,200-pixel-per-inch optical resolution is easily enough for photos and reasonably accurate OCR results, as demonstrated by our tests....

Ranks as very good for both photo scan quality and suitability for photos. Both a simple interface for beginners and an advanced interface for more control

Feature for removing scratches and dust specks doesn't work well

The Canon CanoScan LiDE 35 offers more than the basics, but not much more. Scans for photos rate as very good. The tool for restoring faded colors works well, but the one for removing dust specks and scratches offers little or no improvement for a...

Canon CanoScan LiDE 60

 

Like the LiDE 25, the LiDE 60 claims a maximum optical resolution of 1,200 pixels per inch (ppi), which is more than enough for photos or scanning text for OCR. On our tests, photo-scan quality was good enough for reprinting as snapshots to hand out to...

Reasonably good scan speed and photo-scan quality. Color restore feature for faded photos. Offers both a simple interface for beginners and an advanced interface for better control

Minimal software bundle includes only a photo editor and light-version OCR program

The Canon CanoScan LiDE 60 is one step beyond the most basic of scanners, bundled with only a low-end photo editor and a special-edition OCR program. But its combination of speed, scan quality, and flexibility makes it appropriate for a home office as...

Good Scanner

 

I recommend this if you are looking for a cheap USB powered and lightweight scanner. Just don't over open the cover and keeps on transferring your scanner. It is very fragile due to the lightweight and slim of this scanner

Lightweight and USB powered. It doesn't need to warm up to become fast in scanning documents. Color is not that bad and the quality of the picture will depend on what DPI you will choose to set

A bit slow when scanning compared to other scanners. Hinges osf the cover is only plastic, very easy to break. So be careful when fully opening it

Product Specifications

A perfect scanner for the creatively inclined, the LiDE 60 is so slender it can even be used while standing on its edge. Exquisite styling is matched with USB 2.0 Hi-Speed and scan-to-PDF functionality. Unclutter your desk with the impossibly thin LiDE 60. Drawing all its power from the USB port, it lets you say goodbye to electrical cables and transformers. Slender and light, it can be operated on its side and packs plenty of muscle when it comes to quality scans. 1200 x 2400dpi resolution and 48 bit color depth combine to reproduce fine detail and subtle shade. The LiDE 60 can scan documents directly into PDF (Portable Document Format) files negating the need for specialized conversion software. Text is automatically embedded in PDF files at time of scanning, for editing and searching. Scan to PDF creates a floating palette of pages that can be arranged at will. With an innovative Z-Lid, thick documents, books or small packages can now be scanned as easily as if they were a single A4 sheet. By keeping even pressure on whatever rests on the glass, the lid ensures the best possible results regardless of the size and shape of your object. Traditional methods of color matching are complicated and time-consuming, but with Easy Color Matching Print, Canon's scanner to printer combination produces stunning, realistic colors, quickly and easily. This ensures more faithful reproduction and brilliant output. Canon's QARE Level 3 is your on-board photo print correction system. Dust and scratches are automatically detected and corrected, saving hours of manual retouching. Faded color, excessive graininess and poor exposure can also be corrected. With a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface, the super fast LiDE 60 saves time with every job. Multi-Photo Mode creates individual files from a single scan pass of up to 10 separate images - all cropped and de-skewed automatically.
