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.
