The Best Budget Flatbed Scanner Is the Canon CanoScan LiDE 210


If you want to have an affordable scanner around for digitizing the occasional document or photo, then get the $65 CanoScan LiDE210. Its low price belies its impressive image quality.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 210


A good, inexpensive and easy to set up scanner with modest dimensions, belying its ability to reproduce photos and document pages well.

Quick and generally above-average scans, ScanGear is effective scanner applet, Easy multi-page PDF creation

Very basic OCR, Trouble resolving black and white test pattern, Dust/scratch removal only passable

CanoScan Lide210 scanner


Great software interface, scans well for documents and pictures, saves in format you want, my computer CD tray is broken, so I downloaded the installation disk online,powered by USB so no power cord, scans quickly

So far none, better than my last scanner, an Epson

4800 dpi awesomeness.


Buy it.

USB - Power/Data in one cable ; Excellent scans @ 4800 dpi for what I need it for

Maybe... Just maybe, it would be awesome not to only be able to achieve above 1200 dpi scans without needing to use the proprietary software that it comes with. Not because it sucks but because I don't like the interface

Just Purchased


My LIDE 200 which was purchased 1/19/2009 died today so I figure it cost me approximately 24.58 per year to own which is not bad considering the huge amount of document scanning I do

Cheap and short-lived


Easy to use, affordable. Decent quality resolution. Reasonably compact

Failed abruptly after only 18 months of light use. Didn't buy the extended warranty, and repair would have cost more than replacement. Won't buy this one again

Fantastic scanner


It is perfect for scanning documents and taking up minimal space

light ; fast ; works everytime ; very portable ; no external power source needed

not the best for pictures or wrinkled documents

Nice, Small Scanner


I'd say buy this scanner if you do nothing more than documents and possibly a few photos. There is no need to buy a scanner with all the bells and whistles unless they are needed.

This scanner is nice and sleek and will fit in nicely in cramped quarters. It also makes great scans

The install CD does not have divers for Windows7, 32 or 64 bit. I learned this by putting it on an older computer just to check it out while waiting for a new computer. I had to contact Canon about it and they promptly gave me a reply with how to...

I love Canon LIDE series!


I fell in love w/LIDE series many years ago (1999?) after using kludgy bulky other scanners ; I only use Canon LIDE scanners and so far haven't encountered a job requiring utterly high performance, beyond LIDE's - just get their best model. This one...

None. No film adapter but this model is not intented for such, get Canon Lide 700F if you need film scanning
