AdvantagesBest scanner you can get if you can find it for £45. Looks, general quality of the product, size, simple operation, good scan quality.

DisadvantagesSpeed and options available not first class, can’t scan large items at high resolutions, age (USB 1,1 as opposed to 2.0), software line-up, doesn’t make the best noise in the world. Question marks as to why there are so many refurbished ones.

My Lean Mean Scanning Machine

AdvantagesFor the price the resulting scans are excellent and it looks cool

DisadvantagesThe irritating noise it makes in operation

"...being such a convenient size, Canon has also added a graphic designer or two to their team, as it looks impressive too. The bottom half is grey in colour and is complemented by a stylish blue lid that gives it a modern trendy look. Ease of Installation The beauty of USB is evident in the installation. In the past installing scanners involved connecting them up to one of the ports in the back of your computer and then trying to sort out where ..." Read review

Sleek, Sexy and Stylish

Advantagessmall and compact, easy to use, cheap

Disadvantagesonly 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 would say are among the best in the world. This review is going to be about one of their latest scanners, the model name is N670U. This wont mean much to anyone, ..." Read review

A decent scanner for a crowded desk.

AdvantagesA neat little scanner which stands vertically to save desk space.

DisadvantagesVertical 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 through all the features on this scanner in detail, because if you've seen one low-end model you've really seen them all. Colour reproduction is excellent, ..." Read review

Very good for the price

AdvantagesCheap, reliable, good software, USB-powered

DisadvantagesBasic, no parallel connection

"...is up to the normal Canon high standards. It is also very well built - I have dropped it on the floor from 3-4ft above several times and it has not sustained any damage. As it is also very light, thin and takes its power from the computer, it is a good choice to go with a laptop. ..." Read review

Product Information for "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.
