Canon Canoscan N650U ... less. At just over 2,5 cm high, the N650U scanner is one of the thinnest flatbed scanners in the world. It's also one of the easiest to set up and use. Connect with just a single USB cable to any compatible Mac or PC - no power cord or bulky transformers are necessary. Just plug it in to your computer and scan photos, graphics, copy and more at a remarkable 600 x 1200 dpi for crisp, clear images. Plus, 42-bit resolution gives you over four trillion possible colors for richer, more robust scans. It even has an external programmable button for fast, one-touch scanning.
Canon's exclusive Z-Lid Expansion Top will change the way you scan bulky items, such as books and magazines. Many other scanner covers lift only at an angle and become uneven and awkward when scanning anything that isn't completely flat. The N650U scanner includes a special expansion hinge that lifts up to one 2,5 cm vertically allowing the lid to lie flat, creating the space needed for bulky items.

Quite often, computer peripherals date pretty quickly and can become obsolete within a matter of years, if not months. However, this isn't always the case... I've been using my Canon N650U scanner since 2001. Design and Appearance - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - In terms of the N650U's build quality, the beige plastic that makes up the bulk of the body does feel a little flimsy - but then scanners are notorious for being cheaply made pieces of kit. That said, however cheap the device feels, I can confirm that the N650U is much stronger than it appears; having survived not one but two falls from a desk, and a cup of tea spilled onto it - there was ...

OK, so first the obvious - The 'U' in N650U means 'USB', so unless you know you have a USB port on your computer, don't go here. I have a family member who would like to steal my new scanner, but he can't :-) I read Ciao, and I read DooYoo looking for advice on a good scanner, and both sites pointed me at the Canon N650U. Not because it is the absolute best, but because it is: a) Sensibly priced. It can be had for between £50 and £70 depending on where its bought, and what discount vouchers you have in your sweaty palm this week. b) Better than a home user is ever likely to need. 1200x600 doesn't sound like much ...

I love my scanner so much I had to spend 2 hours writing a review on it. I'm sure it's worth spending that long writing about your pride and joy. Gone are the days when a flatbed scanner would consume a massive chunk of desk space. Witness Canon's CanoScan N650U, which barely exceeds the dimensions of a legal-size sheet of paper and stands a mere 1.3 inches high. What's more, it draws power from its USB interface, so there's no bulky power adapter. All told, the CanoScan series scanners can almost be categorized as "portable" flatbeds. A quick-start guide walks you through the initial connection to a PC or a Macintosh, the ... Read the complete review

The new Canoscan N650U is in my opinion the best value for money you can get on the market today. Option wise this A4 scanner offers 42 bit colour at optical resolutions upto 600x1200dpi via USB port (meaning you can connect it to your laptop). It is superlight at only 1.5kg and also uses the new LIDE system (LED Indirect Exposure) technology instead of the usual lamp. Unlike other cheap scanner on the market, the 650U enables you to scan quite chunky books with apparent ease. I got this scanner for £75 off the internet, including shipping costs. I've talked to different people, and seen different retailers advertising this product and £75 seems to be just ... Read the complete review

I bought my Canoscan n650u at a computer fair in london, the price was £45 at the time but has gone up recently. But even at the more expensive prices this is a good middle-of-the range scanner. For the first time user, or maybe someone who isn't all that good with computers, this scanner shuold be OK. The scanner plugs into the USB port which should make it easy to install, but unlike normal USB devices, it does require the computer to be rebooted before you can use it. Installing the drivers should be easy too. I say should, my scanner was in fact broken when I bought it, BUT canon sent out an engineer and replaced the broken parts. Well, part. When I first opened . Read the complete review
