"Nice looking, nice to use and nice for the pocket."

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 extra thrills. The buttons on the front allow quick use of the featues (scan, copy, email). When doing repetitive work such as scanning a collection of photo's, this can be very handy.

It isnt that quite but, that doesnt matter too much to me. The colour seems true, and the resolution range is more than adequate for home use.

This is a well made product all the simple things done well. It's good looking too.

    Good Op, thanks for the info :) I have an excellent Canon i850 printer (which I have reviewed on Ciao) and I have been looking for a decent Canon scanner to partner with it. Cheers, Dave.

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.
