Canon DR-2580C


The DR-2580C is slightly smaller and lighter than its cousin, at 3.2 by 12 by 6.6 inches (HWD) and 4.2 pounds. Unlike the DR-2050C, its smallest dimension is height rather than depth, which gives it a somewhat larger footprint but also allows a...

Fastest scanner we've tested for scanning and recognizing text pages. Driver supports both ISIS and Twain, to work with virtually any scan program. Flatbed option available

No software for document management or indexing included in package. Unclear installation instructions

The Canon DR-2580C is the fastest document scanner we've tested for scanning and saving in searchable PDF format, but those who need software for document management or indexing to help organize scanned files must buy that separately.

Works great right out of box


I installed the flatbed unit in a few seconds and it worked perfectly the first time. Switching between the flatbed and the autofeed unit is a snap using Canon's software. Great product.

performs well, high quality, easy to use

not 11 x 17


All in all very happy with the scanner. GREAT little desktop scanner.

Fast. Compact, quiet

Not 11 x 17 as advertised. Not even capable with the flat bed attachment, which they fail to tell you about

Good scanner


for small to medium volume this will work very well and fast. If you think of something that will last very long, then there is probably stronger models somewhere.

Scan very well, low maintenance (only some roller at each ±100 000pages depending of paper quality (dust or other)). had DR 3580CII that is a bigger one and users prefered this smaller version

don't like stample! it sratch the glass and hard to find replacement for that. We used them for imaging system and I got 2 units that ended with part of the sheet not showing anymore. I replace the scan "optical eye" with another one that was ok on...

I have just had the rollers replaced for the first time and was hoping it would fix the multiple s feeding issue----but it has not. If anything, more multiple s are feeding through than ever before. I am hoping there is a fine-tuning adjustment as the...

No Comment.

As a tax accountant, I buy new rollers each year at the the beginning of tax season and my scanner is as good as new. We have been scanning old files since last tax season and the ones bought last year were still working fine, but look a little worn. I...

Canon DR-2580C Compact Color Document Scanner


Consumer review by:

happy with this scanner


I purchased this at the recommendation of my billing company. Once I realized the software was hiding in the user manual (why would I bother looking at that!) it was easy to install - and it is quick and simple to use - scans double sided quickly and...
