The CanoScan Lide 400 scanner is a great value (money-wise) as well as delivering a quality and clear result every single time. This scanner has the ability to option multiple pages; gives clear and concise prompts on how to do so. There are no codes to input or complicated instructions; simply load the scans facing down with the top of the scan toward the front of the scanner instead of the back of the scanner. Easy-peasy. Thanks for the easiest scanner I have ever encountered.

Easy and Great Value
Excellent quality scans.
I used this scanner very heavily immediately after getting it, making 2,600+ scans within a week for a high priority project. It worked extremely well, producing high quality scans. The software allows lots of useful options for adjusting the quality of the scan, the hard drive location for storing the files, etc. My only knock is it took a bit to figure out the scanning software but, once I did, I found this Canon scanner to be extremely useful. I recommend this unit highly.
Does as promised.
Very functional and does as promised. Did not give it 5 stars because of software. There should be one software package, not 2, that combines all the functionality under one roof. Learning which software package to use for a particular type of scan is taking longer than it should.
A great scanner for photos and for a great price
The system is easy to set up and takes a few minutes to learn the software. I am primarily using it to scan several decades of photos that I want to store in digital format. I find the colors are not quite true but the ease of having thousands of family photos (some going back to the late 19th and early 20th century) is worth the tradeoff on color tone. The images come out clear and I am happy with it. I would have given it 5 stars if the colors were perfect.
Cano Scanner LIDE 400 Review
This was a replacement for an older Canon scanner. It worked perfectly from the moment we set it up. Does what we expect. Great resolution and excellent color copies. The on screen menu is a little slow to come up but overall this is a great buy.
Great scanner, not-so great interface
This is a great little scanner, the images it produces are beautiful. The only drawback for me was that the interface is not easily understood like other scanners I've used. It took me some research and experimentation to , for example , learn how to crop to the area I wanted to scan.
- Noise level
I'm very happy with the quality of this scanner! I got it to scan artwork so I could post it online, but it's so good with photos that I now have plans to scan a lot of old family photos too. The default setting is a scan to PDF, but if you want to scan as a TIFF or other format, it's easy to change. The online manual is pretty good.
- Value for money
Worked fine, I was leary buying this due to copyright laws, but my mom needed it and she sent her photos from the 1940's successfully. I was supposed to buy a printer with a built in scanner but I missed the boat on that one, and fixed it by buying a scanner after I had installed the printer. You can imagine how I felt when she wanted to scan and I tried to open the lid to suddenly realize that I had gotten a printer with no built in scanner! I didn't want to pay to return it so I kept it and thankfully found this scanner which will be a good tool to remind me to slow down and think before I scan something: to make sure that I don't copy anything that has the copyright logo on it unless I get permission first.
Works fine, only about 4x faster than my 15 year old scanner
Works fine, only about 4x faster than my LiDE 25 that was made 15 years ago. The technology only progresses at this rate? Had to upgrade because software has been discontinued for the old scanner. If the software wasn't discontinued I wouldn't have upgraded. So you win, Canon.
CanoScane LiDE 400... not a happy camper
I've set this up on two different computers and it does not work. It satisfactorily finishes installation, but when I try to do a test scan (less than one minute later), nothing happens except the message that tells me it can't connect to the scanner.
