Not bad for a SOHO desktop product

 

I have a Canon DR-2080C duplex document scanner and I have found two minor but annoying drawbacks: (1) Sometimes its feeder takes a pair of pages sticking together, so it scans the front of one and the back of the other, ignoring the sides facing one...

I just purchased my DR 2080C this week after having read reviews on this site, which were very helpful. The more recent reviews here pointed out that the scanner has been updated to allow the choice of either SCSI or USB 2.0. One complaint that did not...

CANON DR-2080C

 

Very well built. Produces nice scans, and is relatively fast.

It's almost unbelievable that this product cannot scan from within Adobe Acrobat 6.0.

The DR-2080C scanner I bought has a USB 2.0 interface in addition to the SCSI interface. It is fast, scanning several pages a minute, even in duplex mode. The scans are good, completely usable as electronic copies of paper documents.

Canon DR-2080C Review

 

I bought this scanner because I wanted a good, on the desktop scanner for my paperwork that I get at home. My goal is to eliminate 95% of my files, keeping only the hardcopies for items that are absolutely necessary (like my car's Pink Slip).

Small, Fast, Easy to Use, Excellent Document Feeder

No USB/1394 - Only SCSI (Although it comes with an Interface Card)

Product Specifications

For today's small businesses and distributed scanning applications, the ultra-compact Canon DR-2080C offers a level of high performance that makes it anything but a lightweight. The product of radical reshaping, defined by its sleek profile and ergonomic design, it has a footprint so small it fits into the tightest spaces - even your budget. At a mere 5.5 lb., Canon's DR-2080C carries a lot of weight, yet still leaves you extra elbow room. A little clout, without any clutter. There's never been a better reason to take the big leap into high-performance scanning - especially now that it's been trimmed down, both in size and price, yet without any reduction in image quality. It's what makes Canon's DR-2080C such an incredible value - the undisputed leader in its class. The DR-2080C offers superior high resolution, up to 600 dpi for all your 24-bit color, grayscale, and black-and-white scanning needs. It captures even the most intricate details of text and photos, all in a single pass. And does it continuously, at incredible scanning speeds - up to 20 pages per minute/ simplex mode, and 40 images per minute/duplex mode. Together, these features produce the kind of throughput you never thought possible at this level. The DR-2080C is built to the same performance standards inherent in Canon's renowned family of DR-Scanners. Able to scan batches of mixed documents of different sizes, shapes, and weight, it defies convention, redefining the limits of the category. With its unique feeding system, throughput is increased, and presorting delays are kept to a minimum. Even multipart forms are easily scanned using the convenient bypass. All of which makes Canon's DR-2080C the one you can rely on to deliver uninterrupted performance, through thick and thin.
