The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
By Arnie W.
I purchased this scanner to replace an older Canon model that died after four plus years. Easy to set up, but I encountered two issues: one is probably hardware related, the other is software related. Taking the latter first, the software suite is very nice, but much more complicated to use than the old software. All I really want to do is scan, convert to pdf, and save. More difficult to navigate to through the suite of tools to simply do that. The second issue is a recurring problem where after one or two scans the unit informs you that the USB cable is disconnected. Unplug and replug the cable and it works for the next few scans. And now the ugly: After Canon Support, which was very responsive, was unable to find a way to fix it, Canon decided that it would replace the unit with a refurbished one. I haven't received the refurbished unit yet, so cannot comment, but I can note that replacing a brand-new unit with a refurbished one during the first week of ownership seems a bit tacky to me.

Don't count on the "stitch" feature as useful for oversize scanning
The "Stitch" feature for scanning over-sized documents does not work at all well. All images near the borders of the platen necessarily come out a little unclear, because the paper cannot be in direct contact with the glass at that point. The software does not allow for separately cropping each of two images meant to be merged, so as to crop off the unclear parts and then put the images together. If it did, this might be workable, for some less demanding documents where there is white space between lines of print and real accuracy isn't necessary.
But if accuracy really is critical in blending your images, this software simply won't do it for you. When moving images to try to line things up, the images jump from one spot to another, rather than moving smoothly. The "stitch" feature does nothing to make up for this shortcoming by software cleverness. What you are able to manage by patiently jumping the images over and over and hoping they eventually jump to the right spot is all you will get, and nothing more.
I often have to scan many pages of oversized documents, and sometimes struggle to get them all on one scan. This scanner won't be any better than what I had before (which eventually broke down), though it won't be any worse either. It would have been nice to have a stitch feature that was actually useful. Back to Photoshop, for that.

Good and inexpensive scanner.
By C. Pun
Very good printer, very fast and lightweight,
I had to replace my old trusty HP 4670 due to the dreaded driver support issue (ARG!!!). This scanner is a lot faster than the HP and it is so lightweight that I can probably move it from PC to PC to do scans.
My only worry is the cover latch, since it is made of plastic and you need to open/close the lid to scan, I don't know how long it will last.
I wish the software package was better and/or a discount to get a better 3rd party scanner software. I was looking at the SilverFast package but it does not show support for this scanner.
Overall a good purchase for the price. Not the best but what do you want for less than $100.
