Canon LiDE scanners

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Patrick Dunford, Dec 14, 2004.

  1. Anyone with experience particularly of the LiDE 20?

    I know these aren't as good as conventional CCD scanners but they look
    like good value for the low price of around $100.

    I just need a basic scanner for some photos and maybe some OCR. My
    current Mustek 1200ED looks as though the lamp or CCD are on the way out.

    Wogers need not reply.

  2. yep, we use them at work... sometimes the scanning software throws a
    wobly saying that there are no printers installed(see local ones, just
    not network ones), but a reg file we have here with the default settings
    for it seem to fix it.

    quality wise, they're fine(above excepted)

    We've just brought one recently. My research involved rocking to
    pricespy and finding the cheapest non-dodgy brand, and ordering.

    Installed fine, takes up a lot less space than our old one, doesn't
    need a power cord, I was impressed with the scan quality, and the
    comparitive file size of the scanned documents compared to our old
    scanner (big old HP beast).

    Haven't tried any of the OCR stuff that came with it yet.

    They're good. You can't really beat Canon for bang for your buck.

    On a related note, their iP4000R printers are friggin excellent. The
    best all around Inkjet I've used yet.

  5. I've owned a LiDE20 for a couple of years now. In all honesty, I haven't
    used it a lot at all, but I've certainly got no complaints.
