I like the look and design of this scanner. It is has a very nice black colour covering the whole feature. It also says the word "Canon" in very bold letters on the front of it. I am proud of this company because I have bought numerous other branded products from them and they have been of very high standard like this purchase. Therefore I have every confidence in this product, due to my previous experience. I like the simple user interface that they have gone for. Everything that you ever need are at the tips of only 4 buttons so very easy to use especially good for somebody who is not that confident with using computers or may not have a lot of skills. My mum for example is 47 and she can use this with no problems and finds it as simple as I do to operate. As a result it is very user friendly and I cannot commend them higly enough for this matter. The quality of the tasks that I have scanned into my computer such as pictures and documents have been very exceptional. Sometimes I even felt the image I was left with on my desktop was looking better than my original. Also the installation process was as easy as pie. I only had to insert the disc it took only a matter of minutes and then updated the necessary drivers from the Internet. The whole process was very quick and efficient. I did however feel that the length of the cable was not quite long enough and I feel that I was disappointed at not recieving a slighly longer one becuase it left me not being able to position it where I had anticipated, however to me this was a minor flaw. The processing of the documents were completed very quickly and there was no lag at all. I also found that the noise when scanning was very low pitched and not distracting for somebody who is working on something else simultanouesly. My favourite feature has to be the fact that no power supply is required to operate this and it is fully operated by USB cable. I know this may seem only a minor detail, however I must stress this is fairly unique and very few companies if any will actually offer a scanner without the need of a power supply because it cannot operte efficiency but they have managed to achieve this. As a result this makes it even more compact then what I originally thought it would be becuase this featue really surprised me and I was not expecting it. This would therfore be ideal for somebody who likes to store it becuase there will be far less wires, which makes it look tidier and the appereance is appropriate. It did not bother me how big it may have been becuase I had a spare shelf on my desk and it was just going there no matter what. Very good reasonable priced scanner and I feel the advantages certainly outweigh any minor disadvantages therefore I would defenitely recommend to buy this for anybody looking for a simple but very effective designed scanner. It is very highly compact and very robust in design. Also at the price £49.99 its a steal.
Summary: All in all I would recommend this if you are looking for something very cost effective and simple...
