I was in the market for a new scanner as my old HP 2400 was not doing a particularly good job. I don't scan all that much so I was looking for something cheap and cheerful, and I'm pleased to say that the Canon LiDE 100 fits the bill nicely.

It is compact and very light, making it extremely portable and easy to store when not in use (I don't keep the scanner permanently connected due to space constraints around my desk). Brilliantly, it takes its power from the USB connection to your PC rather than a huge separate power supply, meaning one less cable and power socket to worry about. If you are planning on using the scanner a lot with a laptop, I imagine it would drain the battery quite a bit.

Set-up was simple, just install the software (included is Canon's Navigator scanning software plus a copy of Arcsoft's PhotoStudio), reboot your PC, plug in the scanner and off you go.

Scanned images look good straight off the bat, and a little tinkering gets great results. Auto cropping is surprisingly accurate, which makes the scanning of photographs less of a chore.

The black colour scheme and low profile make the LiDE 100 quite pleasant to look at (well, for a flatbed scanner anyway). Using the buttons on the front is simple enough, I managed to produce a copy straight from the scanner to my printer just by pressing the relevant button and no other set-up involved.

Speed isn't this machine's strength, and it is slower than other scanners I have used, but having said that it isn't exactly snail's pace so nothing to worry about.

I highly recommend the Canon LiDE 100, it does a great job at a good price. Well worth purchasing if you do an average to low volume of scanning and you don't want your scanner to take up too much room.

Good slimline scanner, looks attractive. Like that is powered by USB. Installed software, like the idea that you can scan straight to PDF file format which saves space and easy to e-mail. Also like the photocopying function. Just press the photo copier on the scanner and it will scan and send it straight to the printer. I find the buttons on the front really useful and quick. It scans documents very quickly (20 seconds for b&w A4) compared to my old scanner.

The only one negative is that sometimes you get a black line which needs cropping since the white lid does not always sit straight on the glass plate. But for this price it is not a big issue.

Simply put, this is an excellent scanner, which works straight out of the box. Quite lightweight. I will be using an old laptop bag to carry this unit around when I need it away from home. I would imagine that some modern laptop bags have sufficient room to carry this unit in the same case!? I would suggest placing a piece of acid-free tissue paper (available from model and craft shops) between the scanner lid and the glass platten while in transit, as this reduces the risk of permanent marks being left on the glass if the scanner is accidentally 'squeezed' or compressed in its bag while in transit), as well as locking the scanner with the button on the underside. Tried using the scanner while my laptop was on battery power and the battery did drain quite a bit after several pages, which was somewhat expected but might cause issues if you use it too much in this way. I have an additional battery for my laptop, which reduces this problem.

Do ensure that the drivers are loaded first before connecting the scanner to your PC, otherwise the Windows XP scanner wizard can get a little confused!

In summary, a truly lightweight and portable scanner at a great price, easy to use, intuitive menus in the supplied software package and not that noisy compared to some scanners I have used. Enjoy!

This scanner is just great.
Easy to install and to use too. The one down side for me is that it has a maximum dpi of 600 when scanning a photo. Not bad though and darn quick no need for a power supply as it slaves its power from the PC.

Simple but good. Software is not to my liking - but that's because I like old-fashioned windows with grey menu bars and drop-down menus.

Powered by the USB cable, this is a very versatile device that is easy to get out of the cupboard, use and put away again. Image quality appears to be good to excellent. For an entry-level scanner this is hard to beat.

Having never owned a scanner before, I didn't know what quality to expect from a scanner of this price. I got this due to the fact that I also recently purchased a digital photo frame and wanted to scan in photos for it. Its worked perfect for this function, all the photos come out in extremely good quality. Would recommend this scanner to anyone.

I have bought a number of these slimline Canon scanners for the office (originally the LiDE 20, then LiDE 25 and now the LiDE 100) and found them all to be excellent machines that get better with each new model. They're such good value that it would cost far more to buy fancy network scanner sharing software.

They take up very little space on the desktop. They're easy to move from one desk to another, just plug in a USB lead, no power supplies to mess about with. The packaged software is intuitive and easy to use. There are also TWAIN drivers to enable you to scan direct to an application (eg. Word, or Photoshop).

They may not be the quietest or fastest scanners around but they're more than adequate for document scanning in the office, and they still can manage a quality photo scan. I'm so impressed by them I even bought one for home!

Highly recommended.
