Works like a charm, you'll be happy with it
By Michael L. Bates
Had this a couple of weeks now. It does everything I expected and hoped for. I've used it for typed documents, 3x5 and 4x6 cards, and 2.5x6 inch photos. They all pass through with few problems. With the cards, sometimes it couldn't grab the top card and paused, but you just take out the cards, maybe add a few more at the back of the stack, and replace, and it gets going again (two screen clicks are necessary to do this, however--it ought to restart immediately when another stack is inserted in the intake).
The software, CaptureOnTouch, is not intuitive for anything but routine letter paper-sized documents, and the help file and manual are pathetic. There are a lot of sub-menus, one set for managing the input and another for the output. There are no step by step job-oriented instructions: for example, "How do I scan a box of 3x5 cards as individual jpg images in a specific folder?" Instead, it describes each menu, sub-menu, and menu item in a few words, often with a verbal wave of the hand, not always explaining what function the adjustment serves. You have to read carefully through all the options and try different combinations. The labels on the menu items often don't give a clue as to what the function does. And, the English is not good.
But, you can save each input setup and each output setup, so that when you do the same job again you can just click on two squares and then the scan button. If the machine jams, which is quite rare, you can easily open it, replace the input documents and click to resume scanning. It needs to be opened and cleaned after a thousand pages or so, with compressed air to blow the paper dust away; otherwise it becomes increasingly hard for it to grab the next page to scan.
I wish there was a special forum just for this scanner where users could share their experiences.
But, one can't have it all.

Great hardware. I have scanned folded and crumpled letter and legal size documents, as well as various sizes of paper and cards like driver license and business cards. All scanned well and quickly with few jams.
Software is good. I already had Paperport 14, so I skipped that. Canon's Capture on Touch is pretty good, once you figure it out and set up the profiles you want. You can set it up to create a separate pdf for each page or all pages into one pdf file, color, B&W, greyscale or automatic. I found that using B&W on a crumpled carbon copy on pink paper removed the color and the wrinkles. Very pleased with the scanner and software.
Drivers are an issue. I installed it on Windows 7. When I upgraded to Windows 10 the computer could not find the scanner. I emailed customer support and got a reply in a couple of hours (on a Sunday!) that there was no Win10 driver yet; as a current product it would probably get one, but no ETA available. So kudos for a prompt response, a Bronx cheer for its content.
I resolved my driver issue by using a NextBook that is running Windows 8.1. Driver and Capture on Touch work fine, and I set up the profiles to save to a folder on OneDrive. Then I go to the Win10 computer and move the file to other folders on that computer. It works, but I am looking forward to the Win10 driver. Another reviewer indicates that Canon expects to release the driver in 2 - 3 weeks.
When the Win10 driver is released, and I determine that it works property, I think I will increase my rating to 5 stars. I am debating whether or not to knock off a star for what appears to be an habitual delay in developing drivers for new operating systems that other manufacturers do not seem to encounter. Googling revealed a similar delay in delivering drivers when Windows 8 came out.
UPDATE 8/29/15: Windows 10 driver and software are out. I haven't tried them because I dropped back to Windows 7. There were just too many articles about Windows 10 phoning home with all kinds of information for me to feel comfortable. So I have given it 5 stars because it is a great scanner.

Great scanner, worth the money!
By Becky S
I have used this for several weeks now and have scanned thousands of documents with it. Setup was fairly easy enough - it took me several tries, but I am not super tech-savvy. If you have the patience for the slightly longer processing time, the highest resolution looks pretty great. Very few issues with double-feeds, jams, etc. It does not "like" to do double-page scanning (i.e., receipt taped onto a full page) but with taping all edges of the receipt down, it will work most of the time. The size is perfect - as pictured, it fits right on top of my printer so doesn't take up any additional desk space.
