Canon DR-1210C

 

It's not often that I sit down with a product to test and keep saying things like, "Wow, they got that right, too." But the Canon DR-1210C ($400 street) is that kind of product. It earns the "wow" not just because it does an extraordinarily good job of...

Low price for a flatbed document scanner. Incredibly fast text recognition. Unusually easy to use

Scans only in simplex mode (one side of each page). Low raw scan speed, at 12 pages per minute

The Canon DR-1210C's one real limitation is that it can scan only one side of a page. Beyond that, Canon got almost everything right.

They work

 

If you want your Canon scanner to stop pulling multiple pages, and the rollers are worn, these will fix the issue

They cost too much for what you are getting, but if you need to keep a fleet of older Canon scanners operational as we do, you bite the bullet and pay the money

Great

 

Great scanner. Fast and reliable. Can take big stacks of documents and turn them into pdfs no problem. Quality is great. We use it around the office and it is one of the few scanners/printers that work 100% of the time

No deal breaking Cons. The one thing I did notice was the feed ramp, it is made of cheap plastic and could easily break off if hit hard enough

Solid high speed scanner

 

Originally we purchased this for production but looking back we should have gotten something a little more beefy. This scanner is ideal for a small to medium sized business.

good speed for the price (50ppm or 100ipm) ; Capture perfect is pretty straight forward ; low power consumption ; built very solid ; small footprint ; a lot of cool features in software (24-bit color, 256 greyscale, text enhancement, ect.)

Recommended daily duty cycle - 6,000 not that great ; some driver issues ; really slows down on color and advanced text enhancement

works great - not for heavy usage

 

just purchased our second unit. our first died after about 1.4 months HEAVY duty scanning. we use it to go paperless with our customer invoices - scanning several hundred thousand pages. our invoices are pink very lightweight tear off sheets but the...

too bad our first died with controller/sensor error but overall great performance considering how heavily we use it. we switched to using a new version of omnip@ge for much better scanning performance

None, could not use

Not compatible with Windows 98SE

Consumer review by:

Finally a scanner that works

 

I note that someone else complained about jams with the ADF BUT this is what happens if you connect to a USB 1.x interface because the paper moves too slowly - it really wants the USB 2.0 interface to work right... as specified. I used a low-cost...

This is a great scanner for a workgroup that has low to moderate volume - its quality and speed is good enough that it saves a walk to the copier for quick copies. Set up is flexible and the buttons can be programmed for straight to print or for...

The OMNIPage software which comes with it is too limited to be much use and keeps nagging to "upgrade" to the full version. The Acrobat works fine though if you make .DOC files, it's a little hit or miss on vertical spacing

Consumer review by:

Great Scanner..period

 

Total workhorse...not industrial grade, but more than sufficient for a small commercial and/or home office. Of the ADF/flatbed scanners available this is the one to buy..and it only costs a few more dollars than its entry-level counterparts

Great price, high-quality, and durable scanner with great software included

Like any non-industrial grade scanner, can suffer misfeeds/jams, especially when scanning certain media (e.g. thin paper)
