A slim profile and a low price help offset this scanner's mediocre speed.

CanoScan LiDE 50 review

 

Flatbed scanners have been around for a long time, but every time you blink they seem to be getting faster and smaller. The CanoScan LiDE 50 is no exception to this with is dimensions being slightly larger than an A4 piece of paper (258 x 374 x 38mm...

Slimline, USB 2.0 connection

Poor button design, keeping it clean will be hard

On paper, the only real advantage of this machine over its younger brother is the speed factor.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 50 1200 x 1200dpi 48bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner

 

Love this scanner. Seems to work just fine with XP. The scanner comes with more software than you will probably use, but this is a good thing you get to choose what you want to use. I had an old CanoScan 620P that I had for over 8 years. I wanted to...

Problem

 

bought from newegg, did not work at all due to mechanical problem (would not unlock). Called Canon, had a new one in my hands in 2days. It is a very good scanner, with "tool box" that makes one button scans a snap. Works well with xp pro.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 50 1200 x 1200dpi 48bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner

 

Superb scanner. Fast, high quality, stylish, compact, relatively quiet, and no power brick (it's powered by the USB cable). It seems to get along very well with WinXP and the one-button scanning actually works. USB 2.0 is definitely the way to go.
