Canon CanoScan N1220U

 

This remarkably thin 3.3-pound model packs plenty of power, scanning at a top resolution of 1200 by 2400 dpi.

The slim CanoScan N1220U is a good choice for anyone who has little desk space or who wants a compact scanner that can travel. However, if you need a scanner that you can upgrade to handle transparencies or lots of documents, you'll have to look...

Canon CanoScan N1220U

 

The 42-bit, 1,200-by-1,200 DPI Canon CanoScan N1220U (AU$299) commands attention for its slim, stylish design. The unit is unbeatable for scanning in tight, confined places and can even scan on its side via a plastic stand that holds the scanner upright.

Consumer review by:

Great little scanner, although somewhat slow

 

I've had this scanner for 3 years now, and have been very pleased with it. The image quality is excellent. I like how small and light the scanner is- it takes up no space on my desk (you can even store it sideways). I've used it for web publishing,...

small and lightweight. Excellent picture quality. Multi-function button is very useful.

Slow scan speed for high quality imaging.

An outstanding scanner

 

We purchased this scanner after being tired of the poor accuracy of color reproduction of an older non-name brand model. We frequently scan in photos of our daughter and print them on photo paper for relatives, and of course we wanted our little girl...

Product Specifications

Impressive. Spectacular. Remarkable. There are many ways to describe this truly affordable scanner that delivers outstanding, scans. And when you consider the CanoScan 1220U numerous innovations that make scanning fast and easy, you'll agree-this is one amazing machine. The 1220U scanner is just over one inch high and uses a single USB cable for power and connection to any compatible Mac or PC. With the simple push of its external scan button, you get superb 42-bit scanning with the color depth and brilliance of more than four trillion possible colors. And its high-tech, metallic champagne finish makes this performance scanner look incredible wherever you put it. Canon's exclusive Z-Lid Expansion Top will change the way you scan bulky items, such as books and magazines. Many other scanner covers lift only at an angle and become uneven and awkward when scanning anything that isn't completely flat. The 1220U scanner cover includes a special expansion hinge that lifts up to one inch vertically and lies flat to create the space needed for bulky items.
