I am after a new usb2 scanner and at the moment it is between a Visioneer 8920 and a Cannon lide50.Has anyone any experience of either and what is the cheapest anyone has seen either at.

I dont know what your budget is but the visioneer 9020 rocks. cant go wrong

I have the Canon LiDE50, it's a superb scanner, very fast, quiet and excellent easy to use software. Very slim and stylish,can be used on it's side, [stand provided] and is a "Full speed" USB2 scanner. software is Adobe photo elements. j.

What is the difference between USB and USB2 and hoew can I tell which one I have?

Could I use a scanner that says it requires USB2 on an ordinary USB port.

See your other post on this same subject in Helproom.

I am leaning more and more towards the Cannon Lide 50 which is £69.99,has anyone else got a better price?

You'll be hard pressed to find a better price than that,It's only a few months back the LiDE50 was retailing for over £100.00 and in many stores is still selling for around the £90.00 mark.

It is always difficult to recommend something to anyone, as each person has different requirements. But I can say that you will not be disappointed with the Canon and it's features that I outlined in my post above at 00:38. Regards. j.

Canon everytime.

USB 2 prodcts can be used in USB 1 ports but at USB 1 speeds. Unless you are REALLY pushed for time theres not problem. If you want USB 2 get a USB 2 PCI card for £30 and install...
