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.
Pros: Great board. lots of features.
Cons: tried to run 3 monitors to no avail.
Strangely enough all of the Asus board show no video on board but mine has it???
So I tried to connect 3 monitors on the MoBo.
When I plug 2 in it works but 3 won't work. So I tried to set it up in several different ways (Auto, x4, x1) and even added first one other PCIe graphic card then 2 but still can't run 3 monitors. Next I will purchase a better card that does handle 3 or 4 monitors and maybe try to go crossfire or sli
