“Sleek, Sexy and Stylish”

Prosmall and compact, easy to use, cheap

Consonly USB connection

Most people will recognise the Cannon brand and will associate it with photography and with good reason, as they produce very good cameras. Over the past few years Cannon has also got into producing other imaging products such as Digital Cameras, Printers and Scanners. All of these products I...

The Canon CanoScan N670/676U is a mid range USB flat-bed A4 scanner. I’ been around for nearly a year and is still in Canon’s current range.

ConsVertical scanning is a big let-down!

When your old, chunky parallel port scanner packs up, you'll be spoilt for choice when you go out to buy a USB replacement. Chances are, the average home user needs something that will scan and reproduce an item accurately - and any sub-£50 scanner should suffice. So... WHY THE 670U? I won't go...

“Very good for the price”

published 04/06/2003

ProCheap, reliable, good software, USB-powered

ConsBasic, no parallel connection

This scanner is very cheap, so you of course cannot expect the quality or speed of a scanner costing hundreds of pounds. The resolution does not go particularly high, but at the resolutions it can do it still produces good quality scans, though they do have a slight tendency to go a little dark...

“A good basic scanner”

Proquick, easy basic functions

Consaverage quality output

I was given one of these having vowed never to use a scanner. My impression had always been that they were more trouble than they're worth! This scanner has been very straightforward to use for basic features. It scans photographs and documents with ease and the standard settings are quick too...

ConsSlow scan speed.

I’ve owned a couple of dirt-cheap scanners… mainly as an alternative to buying a photocopier to use for 2-3 sheets per month – this is the best scanner by a huge margin. I’ve never been concerned about photographic quality – or even in colour… though I think the Cannon does OK on those points –...

Conscan be a little slow

I bought this scanner for business use at my office - I am an infrequent user and just needed something to scan the occasional document or image onto an electronic file. It was delivered the next day through my regular stationery supplier, and took only a few short minutes to unpack, set up and...

As scanner experiences go, my use of this CanoScan has been good. It sits on my desk taking up very little space and looking very good. Many of my friends point out how nice it is and are suprised at how cheap it is. The bundled software seems simple enough to use, but at the same time offers no...

Product Information : Canon CanoScan N670U

Manufacturer's product description

The CanoScan N670U scanner is a truly remarkable addition to your home or workplace. Its intelligent, state-of-the-art features save you time, and the unbelievable price can save you money. Its sleek styling looks great on any desktop. And the results you'll achieve are simply spectacular. At just over one inch high, the N670U scanner is one of the smallest flatbed scanners in the world. It's also one of the easiest to set up and use. Connect with just a single USB cable to any compatible Mac or PC - no power cord or bulky transformers are necessary. Then scan, copy or e-mail your images in just one step using the three convenient external buttons. You can even burn complete photos onto CDs with ease. So it's easier than ever to take advantage of this scanner's full capabilities: remarkable 48-bit and 600 x 1200 dpi resolution that gives you over 281-trillion possible colors for richer, more robust scans. The accompanying stand allows you to stand up the N670U scanner to make room on your desk, and still use it to scan at anytime. Canon's advanced Z-Lid Expansion Top will forever change the way you scan bulky items, such as books and magazines. Other scanner covers lift only at an angle and become uneven and awkward when scanning anything that isn't completely flat. The N670U scanner cover includes a special expansion hinge that lifts vertically and lays flat to create the space needed for bulky items, and to help ensure clear scans.
