5 out of 5 eggsQuality traditional CCD scanner from a good brand

Pros: Stable LED light source that doesn't need warmup and recalibration. Power supply is embedded in the scanner itself for a compact setup. Compact software that occupies little space on disk and on screen; only the "driver" is needed for acquisition and basic processing. Software is compatible down to Windows 2000. Verified to work with the cover open for bulky documents like books. The cover has a retractable hinge to support thicker documents. As a CCD scanner, the unit has good depth of focus, and natural blurring of unfocused, distant edges.

All automatic correction in the software can be switched off to obtain raw scans of matching, reproducible color balance. Decent actual resolution at or slightly above 1200 ppi. Decent dynamic range for any type of reflective document, able to resolve both the darkest HQ print and the texture of the whitest paper. Greater than 24-bit actual precision. Decent on-the-fly "descreening" filter for quick moire-less copies, but not to be relied upon for making quality scans of printed artwork.

Cons: No significant cons for this price range. No larger than 35 mm transparent documents (film) can be scanned. Dynamic range and resolution might not be sufficient for some negatives. The power supply makes tweeting noises when the switch is off; switch doesn't fully disconnect power. Adjustment of contrast in ScanGear is imprecise because the histograms are small. Data is processed only at 24-bit at high resolution. With enough memory, 48-bit can be manually selected.

Other Thoughts: I have only tested reflective documents via the TWAIN interface from within Windows XP. The Navigator EX application is only needed to have the buttons on the scanner respond. When scanning documents that approach the amount of available memory (which is displayed in ScanGear), a small application like IrfanView will allow to make larger scans.

I've previously owned CanoScan 4400F. I was disappointed that I didn't get the elite-looking translucent USB cable with the 5600F. Resolution in this unit has increased slightly from around 800 ppi to about 1200 ppi. It also doesn't need calibration and compensation for a 'weaker' color (which was blue in the old model). All colors come out balanced by default without correction. I was able to obtain good partial scans of Vinyl artwork, which could be seamlessly rejoined in Photoshop. The ScanGear "driver" has changed little, and can be controlled precisely via TWAIN. It first starts up in simplified mode.

The 5600F driver allows to correct contrast on the fly, and performs some correction by default. However, when the resolution is increased to 1200 ppi, the transfer curves operate on 24-bit data only, and histograms come out with visible bands. Full 48-bit precision is used at 600 ppi and below. This is probably done to increase scanning speed when the USB interface becomes the bottleneck. Because of this, contrast adjustment on the fly becomes pointless, as one can use better preview facilities in a graphics editor to do it.

At 2400 ppi and a regular sized document the stepper motor had to pause because my computer's USB wasn't fast enough to receive the data. The scanner was able to restart, without backing up and without visible tears on the picture. The 2400 ppi resolution must be manually keyed in the dialog, and is of limited use since the scanner's optical resolution isn't that great. I was able to preserve a little more detail when digitally rotating a picture supersampled this way.

I was unable to verify whether the scanner can scan all money bills. It successfully scanned $10 (as a sample of detailed print without a halftone pattern) and all of my local currency, but I believe they don't have the special dot pattern. If the unit does have protection against scanning of money, I would deduct one full Egg from the score.

After I first installed the driver, the scanner would first refuse to make a full resolution Scan, but succeeded producing a Preview. I received an error message with code "95,0,0", directing me to turn off the scanner and follow instructions in the manual. The manual didn't explain this error code, and the error went away by itself after a few more attempts, without power cycling the unit. I suspect the driver wanted me to install the software in a particular order.

2 out of 5 eggsBulky

Pros: Good quality scan, as always from Canon.

Cons: I had a LIDE first and when it got obsolete due to windows newer ver. I bought the 3200F which was even better. However I recently broke the glass and thought about fixing but since it was old I decided to get a newer one which was on sale. After reading the specs I decided to go for it. I unpacked and installed it.
1 it's heavy and bulky. The 3200 is thin and light.
The Canoscan toolbox was a great thing and is not available with this model in it stead there is Solution Menu and MP navigator. Not intuitive at all. I thought progress is moving FORWARD and simplify things NOT make things more complicated.
The previous "Toolbox" made it EZ to choose what was wanted/needed AND it would open the program and load the scan into it depending on your choice.
It is now taking me 3 times longer to do my work. I may get used to it but I hate having to go through another learning curve.

Other Thoughts: It is not fast as I believed. The 3200 was as quick however the dpi was lower.
Also the glass surface for docs was longer and I was able to use longer (obviously) documents to scan.
Why did they have to change a good thing for so-so interface? I would NOT recommend this unit. Better get a sheet feed scanner if you have lots of scanning to do.

4 out of 5 eggsBig Size but Excellent quality

Pros: Mind blowing scan quality, especially when you set the 4800DPI.

Cons: Did not install on Windows-7 even after downloading the correct x64 drivers. Had to install on my XP laptop. Size is very big and heavy, you don't get the idea looking at the photo.

4 out of 5 eggsA Lot of Scanner for the Money

Pros: I purchased this scanner to replace my Canon scanner that I purchased from Newegg eight years ago. My old scanner took a full minute to scan a single page at 150dpi, but this gem takes less than 10 seconds. I scan a lot of photos from magazines and books and this scanner's rendering of images I tested through it yesterday were stunning. Color and contrast are spot on, auto adjustment functions on the images in Photoshop produce little or no change, which is my indicator of how well a digital imaging divise performs.

Setup in Windows XP was as simple as could be.

After using the oversimplified software associated with my old scanner I can see that I will have to spend some time learning the software for this scanner which is more complex. But as I indicated above, I was up and scanning high quality images in less than 30-minutes out of the box yesterday.

Scanning of negatives was easy as well and the quality of the scans were excellent.

Cons: None yet. Only gave this scanner four stars because I have only had it for one day and have not had a chance to fully explore it's potential.

Other Thoughts: I was a little disaapointed with the way the scanner came packaged from Newegg. The scanner arrived in the manufacturer's box (not a problem) and box lid was not sealed in any way for shipment. In other words, if someone wanted to take something out of the box while in transit all they would have had to do is flip the little cardboard flap down and flip the lid open.

I have been ordering from Newegg since 2003 and the is the first time anything like this has happened. I will continue to order from Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's pretty big

Pros: Easy to setup. Scans very fast.

Cons: It's big and tall too. I bought it because the film scaning capability. Should've gotten the smaller LiDE210.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

Pros: Setup is a breeze and the scan options are exceptional for a home-based or small business unit. One-touch buttons operate nicely and the unit is quick and quiet. It looks good and operates nicely. Very good value for the money and the included film/slide carrier is a great touch. I can now scan my military slides from 'back in the day'. My old HP was big, noisy and they wanted $60 for the slide option. The other thing I really like (but may sound trivial) is the power cord does not have that huge, clunky power converter on the plug (or mid-cord). It's a standard power cord and means I didn't have to finagle my whole power strip to get it to fit. Also, the unit scans wonderfully at 1200 dpi. Those who have posted that it doesn't obviously can't navigate the one or two extra button clicks needed to engage the 'Scanner Driver' settings (that pop up) and should adjust their 'user experience' buttons. It does everything it says it will do.

Cons: None so far. It's for my home-use and if that's your intended purpose, then it's a perfect fit. The only interface issue (listed previously) is that the save feature with the bundled software does not 'remember' where you saved last. So, you have to re-navigate to the folder you want with each scan batch. Not a big issue at all.

Other Thoughts: I'm continually impressed by NewEgg's price, service and interface. They are the 'diamond standard' in online sales in my opinion. Don't change anything!!!

4 out of 5 eggsfilm scanning is for 35mm only

Pros: Good scanner for the money.

Cons: Film scanner is for 35mm ONLY. The lighted top is a narrow strip, and not the entire top of the scanner lid. Avoid this model if you want to scan medium format negs/slides.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice, Good Price

Pros: Installation is fast and simple enough. The software isn't too bulky, and it's very easy to use.
I opened the box, installed the software and drivers, and scanned my first picture in under 10 minutes.

Scan quality is very good so far. It reads pencil well enough and even picks up some of the grain graphite leaves.
Far far superior to the last generic scanner I had. Much better than the HP/Kodak scanner/printers combos I've used. Dedicated scanners really do make a difference and the extra DPI is worth the added price for anything beyond documents.

Weight-wise this thing is a feather, very easy to move around.

At first the door hing doesn't seem very firm, turns out it's a feature. There is a sliding mechanism that lets the cover come up an inch in case you need to scan something thick. Works well with my sketch book.

Cons: It seems as though one has to use the Cannon software that come bundled up with the scanner to get full use out of it.

Other Thoughts: Major props to New Egg, I ordered this at 3:30 am Sunday and got it around noon Monday. I couldn't ask for faster delivery than that if they were to drive it down themselves.
At $89, adding in the fact that shipping was free-I feel I got a great deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGood scanner

Pros: Scanner worked fine. Scanned in 35 mm negatives and slides @ 9600 dpi. Pictures came out very clear.
Regular scanning also worked as I hoped it would.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Make sure that PC has a good CPU and plenty of RAM. Processing a 300+ meg file can be taxing on system resources.
