Pros: I've been having a lot of difficulty getting a flat bed scanner that works with 8.1. I guess not too many flat beds are sold and they are a low priority, I tried several brands including Canon and Xerox.
With this computer and software from the epson web site I have been able to make multiple page pdfs so I guess I'm back in business.
Cons: BUT I still can't get it to work as a simple copier. My old flat beds used to do this easily.
Also, no luck using it with scanner utility in windows 8.1.
Other Thoughts: I don't know what the message is here but the majority of the market seems to have moved to combined scanner-printers. My old Canoscan was great but the move from XP to Win 8.1 has turned it into junk. Never mind driver downloads the companies aren't really serious about making these work.

Pros: in the overall, the scanner works like a champ. I own Lide 25, and I upgraded my MS system from Win 7 to Win 8.1 and since Canon had stopped writing software for Lide25 I am forced to buy a new scanner. I called Canon Loyalty Program and the operator was too busy doing something else rather talk to me and give me a better deal for the new unit. At this point I am very aggravated with Canon customer service approach and ignorance from tech site about the software updates. I am the owner of DSLR 60D and few high end lenses, camcorder, and scanner but seems like this is a time to change my "bad habits" and go with some concurrent brands.
Cons: Canon customer service approach and attitude toward old customers.
Other Thoughts: Canon has badly disappointed me. Don't waist your money because you will betrayed anyways at some point.

Pros: I have owned this scanner for a long time, it still functions great, and I mainly use this for my photos scan and negatives for archival purposes. I use this to scan negatives mostly now, which works great, but have since gotten a lower end scanner for quick jobs. It works exactly as you expect it to. I have not had problems with the Windows XP/Vista/7. All the resolutions work, sometimes resolution too high (files are sometimes too enormous to work with). Great for the purpose that I need it, causal photographer.
Cons: It just takes a lot of work to manual do all the scans; however, there is no other way around it unless you hire somebody to do it.

Pros: Good color reproduction; lid opens 180 degrees; fairly fast; good quality low-end product.
Cons: Low-end product; software not intimately coordinated.
Other Thoughts: Despite NewEgg's description, this is an LED scanner, not CCD. Whether that's an advantage or a disadvantage depends on your needs and point of view.

Pros: USB - Power/Data in one cable. Excellent scans @ 4800 dpi for what I need it for.
Cons: Maybe... Just maybe, it would be awesome not to only be able to achieve above 1200 dpi scans without needing to use the proprietary software that it comes with. Not because it sucks but because I don't like the interface.
Other Thoughts: Buy it.

Pros: Scans fast once it does its warm up. Lightning fast compared to most all in one machines. No need for power cord (see other thoughts on power). The buttons on the front work just fine.
Cons: You need somewhere to keep it. Not really a con, but just realize it has to go somewhere where as all in ones take up 1 spot. You can't just copy to paper, you must scan 1st and the print how ever many copies. Not really a con, but!
Other Thoughts: So I bought this cause I'm sick of losing perfectly good equipment when 1 part of a printer dies. This way, if my next printer dies, I can still scan and print elsewhere. Now to power issue, I would not use this with a USB hub unless the hub gets its own power from a wall outlet. Its fine directly plugged into PC, but afraid it would burn out a port with a hub drawing power for more than just the scanner.
