The only thing I would point out is that the LiDE 210 did not come with ArcSoft PhotoStudio, despite this being mentioned as included in the Amazon description. (ArcSoft PhotoStudio was included with the previous, non-Windows 7, models.)
Update: I have emailed Amazon and they say they have passed my comment to the relevant department to have the reference to ArcSoft PhotoStudio removed.
For £60 its a bargin, even for pros.
The nice and simple set-up takes only a few minutes and the software is so much simpler to use, which is a good thing.
I've stopped using the standard 6x4 settings, as they seem to leave a border on two sides, but if you set it for Auto Detect, then there's no problem. It also scans 4 at a time without chopping the bottom one, which my 50 did.
I haven't found a preview button, which would allow the scan area to be cropped, which I always find useful, but it's not the end of the world.
Speed is definitely improved, although this is a level above the old 50 anyway in terms of performance.
I haven't bothered with any manipulation software (I'm not even sure if any was included), as I always use Photo Elements for a half decent job and only want the scanner to scan old prints, which it does perfectly well.
Update 02/02/11 - You can indeed do previews and presumably adjust crops, but I find that the multi-scan is so simple and useful that I don't bother with anything else. The only time I might use the manual preview is when scanning a cropped area at maximum resolution, which would be useful for increasing picture size.
The result of scanning into Photoshop, then printing, for each of the 4 doc. types listed above, was very good. Colours true, blacks black, image sharp, including colour photos printed on ordinary or photo paper.
Using the auto buttons on the scanner is convenient but imposes default settings which might not suit all tasks, but they work (although the Scan to Email launches Mail which I do not use). The ability to scan several originals and to have them assembled into a single multi-page PDF is useful. The on-screen manual is comprehensive and describes all sorts of expert features like setting White Balance, Colour Balance, Saturation, Histogram etc. (if you need those).
A really excellent high quality product, especially at this price. (I first bought the competitor Epson V330 but had to return it because of a strong green cast which Epson Tech. Support could not solve.) Canon CanoScan LiDE 210 Scanner
I bought this scanner about 6 years ago (see my review above). I recently changed to a Windows 7 computer (I was on a Mac)
