One Plug Scanning: Consolidate the number of wires in your work area as one simple cable provides a Hi-Speed USB connection and power.
My firm purchased this scanner for me in order to scan some documents from the National Archives which is quite particular about equipment used with their documents. First off, this scanner fit beautifully in my carry-on with my laptop and stored under the seat in front of me. Easy set up made things a breeze in my daily tasks and break down at nights. While this may not be the fastest scanner in the world and may not have all of the bells and whistles, it is an excellent value and works beautifully for straight forward tasks.

Best Scanner Ever
I love this new scanner -- needed one for our newer computers as our older (still working 110) does not do PDF's!! I highly recommend this scanner for everything -- especially love the auto-crop feature!!

The scanned is difficult to use and forward scanned images. It is also slow but I recognize I did buy a lower quality machine. I have had it for less than months and use it about once a week. the light source quit working.
I should have purchased a more expensive model

Driver and software download
I lost the CDROM that comes with the scanner, and discovered it when i wanted to install them on my new laptop.
i was very glad to find all what i wanted on Canon website and to proceed to install both the driver and software easily. Thank you.
Note to other users: while installing the driver, do wait for the process to be complete, it takes sometimes; actually i got a message saying that the installation wasn't done successfully; but when i waited a minute more, the installation was completed successfully. (the flag detecting the installation seems to need tuning)

Optical resolution is a measure of maximum hardware sampling resolution, based on ISO 14473 standard.
Color document scanspeed is measured with ISO/IEC 24712 Newsletter. Scan speed indicates the time measured between pressing the scan button of the scanner driver and the on-screen status display turning off. Scan speed may vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, scan mode settings, document size, etc. Additional Disclaimers:
