I recently purchased the Canon CanoScan LiDE 110 as a replacement for an older LiDE 30. This LiDE's most important features is that it is compatible with all versions of Microsoft Windows, including Windows 7 64-bit (the older version is not compatible with 64-bit versions of windows) and the fact that it is powered through the USB 2.0 cable, meaning no power supply to carry around or finding a place to plug in, a plus for use with a notebook computer.

After following the directions for installation, installing the drivers before plugging the scanner into the computer, everything went flawlessly, and the first time the scanner was plugged in, after rebooting, the hardware was found and driver installed.

While this can be used as a stand alone flatbed copier, it can also scan to PDF files right from a button on the front of the scanner, meaning you won't need to have a full featured PDF creation program to create PDF files. A button can also be configured to send a scan directly to your e-mail program, although I haven't tried this feature.

If you use this scanner in a photo editing program, such as Paintshop Pro Photo, or Photoshop, after the driver software loads, I would recommend clicking on the advanced button, as it gives you much more control over the details of the scan, which is important when scanning photos. If you haven't used a scanner before, then let me recommend that you select 600 dpi as your default scanning resolution, instead of the 300 dpi selection you'll see the first time you use it. Also be aware that jpg files at 600 dpi can be quite large when in color, so if you are scanning a black and white photo or document, you're better off selecting Gray Scale instead of Color. In the advanced mode, changes like DPI and color will show up the next time you use the software. If you use the basic mode, and make changes, this is not the case. That's why I always recommend using this in the advanced mode.

If you're looking for a scanner to scan 50 page documents, this is not the scanner to buy. You need one with an automatic sheet feeder, or an All-In-One with a sheet feeder. This flat bed scanner is best used for scanning photos and books.
