Scanner seems well put together and works well. The "warm up" time before a scan is much improved over that of my last Canon scanner.
The driver software is easy to install but the application software provided is a mixed bag. In fairness to Canon I think that the same could be said of the application software provided by all scanner manufacturers.
The only Canon application I require is Navigator EX. It does the job but the user interface is far from intuitive if you like to exercise close control over the scanning process.
