First off, I like anything Canon, and have several
items like the above. So easy--just touch the
auto scan tab on the rig, and away it goes doing
its thing. Also extremely easy to install. Fine
piece of equipment.
When scanning several dozen old photo albums speed, and fast editing is utmost importance...perhaps the best features for this job is the "auto crop" feature...and the speed. On most photos, the speed is actually faster than that which was advertised...IE by the time you take another photo out of the album the previous scan has been completed.
This scanner at the over ninety dollar cost on Walmart is eighty-nine list retail. So much for the Walmart price guarantee as googling finds you a better price. But it quickly misaligned itself and definately needs time to warmup.
Save up and buy a better unit. The HP at the same price point had little lines in the scan so it went right back.
Scanner did not work. Canon is replacing.
I love this scanner, simple and works great. This is the second one we owned, both were cannon's. we couldn't get new drivers for the last one but it never did wear out. I like that there isn't a separate power cord. I use it with my laptop. windows 7.
My old scanner was really slow. It seemed to take forever and I kept having to reload the included software every time I wanted to use it.
But my new CanoScan LiDE210 warms up almost instantly, scans my object within just a few seconds, whether its a photo or document and I like how it assigns the completed scan within its own category.
I have not owned it long enough to determine its durability, but it is the best scanner I've had to date and I've own 8 scanners.
The included software is simple, not complicated and functions like you think it should. No hassles or disappointments. I rate this CanoScan LiDE210 a full 5-Stars.
The CanoScan LIDE210 is so simple to use that I was sure I was getting it wrong, but happily it worked well even for a beginner.
I used it to scan pictures and word documents and both came out clear and sharp for the reports I needed.
Since then I have used it to add old family pictures to my computer and they come out looking very good.
I've used these little scanners since the Lide10, have upgraded a few times. I am able to take this with me on trips as it fits right in my briefcase with my laptop and allows me to copy photos or book pages at the library, able to scan multiple photos and keep as seperate files without having to cut, paste and save. No need for a seperate power cord. I just pack and go.
i work in say 25 different towns in a year & i need to be on the move all the time - i COULD NOT FUNCTION without this EXCELLENT scanner
I was looking for a better easier option for the smaller scanner I had ,which took along time to scan pictures . You could only scan up to a 4X6 inch. With this one you can scan more then 1 picture at a time and up to a 8 x 10. It is simple and easy to use and set up and the quality of the pictures are great. Thank you for making my life easier.
I was extrermely pleased with this purchase. It has helped tremendously with document filing. Wished I would have purchased this sooner. Functions very user friendly, light weight but still durable and adequate speed.
This one is a solid workhorse. Perfect home business use. Easy set up. Ready for use in under 5 minutes. I'm completely satisfied.
I have been using Canon's LIDE scanners since @ 1999. Each time I have been very happy with the purchase as this is a very low cost scanner with a very big end product. I do genealogy and am currently digitizing all my documents for use on a tablet. I have just upgraded to a new computer with Windows 7. Then I checked out the Canon LIDE 210 and discovered it had a PDF capability needed for docs to be read on tablets. And it was still at the same price as the first one I bought in 1999. The PDF capability works like a charm. I have always used my Canon LIDEs for both documents and photos. My only problem is that I read where non-windows users have some options, I don't for direct scanning. to a "Cloud" program on a different Canon scanner. Hope to see that capability in a LIDE 210 update in the future.
This is a great stand alone scanner. My old all in one ran out of ink and I bought the ip2702 printer which prints great so I needed a new scanner to go along with my Canon printer. I did not want to spend money on another all in one printer so I decided to give this scanner a try. The thing I like the most about this scanner is that it allows you to make direct copies to your printer by the push of one button. Basically makes my little printer and the scanner act as an all in one. It looks really neat standing sideways on my desk gives it a very professional look. I would recommend it to anyone who already has a printer with no scanner.
This Scanner is excellent for home and office use. It works with ease and reliabiity.
Scanner purchased to replace an exvellent, working LiDE 30 scanner that was not compatable with a software upgrade. This is an excellent scanner but there was no good reason that my LiDE scanner should not work with an upgrade to my operating system.
This is the best experience I have ever had setting up and using a scanner. Lightweight, quiet, and literally, by following 3 steps—on the box—I was scanning!
My impression is that someone who has to do a lot of scanning designed this scanner.
And, you can pop up the built-in stand and it takes up even less room.
As a designer, everything has to be done on budget and on schedule. This scanner does both, and gracefully.
Except for the rather "clunky" repetitive on-line manual, I have no complaints so far. The software is pretty straight-forward and the scans are great. I think the built in OCR is a great feature, as is the direct to e-mail function. I haven't used this unit to it's full extent yet, but if it lasts as long as my last Canon, a 620B, I'll be quite happy with it. I'm running Win 7 and had no trouble with installation.
When I purchased this scanner I thought that that was all it could do. Boy was I wrong. This little scanner is a dynamo. It can scan text, photos, prints, everything.
I had no idea I would use this scanner so much nor did I realize how nice it is to scan directly into a PDF no more GIF or JPEG - scanning of documents.. This scanner is light, easy to plug in and out if you don't want to keep it around it is light weight, VERY efficient and SUPER easy to use as easy as "push this button that says PDF" or "scan and email" no worries.. need to print from scan? Go ahead push "print" and it will send the scan to your printer... need I say more? Go ahead spend on the best investment out there.. I had another one I gave away to a friend, that's how much I love this scanner... I bought this one and had it for over 3 years!
