If you could possibly stretch your budget a little further I STRONGLY recomend the Visioneer 9020. I have recently bought one myself and think its the proverbial dogs doo-dahs. Been PCA no. 1 for like the last 5 months or something! Now I have one I see why

Canon LIDE 50 Slimline Scanner. 671/9106


1200 x 2400 dpi LiDE sensor.

48 bit depth.

USB 2.0.

4 one EZ scan buttons.

Fast multi-photo mode.

Software includes Adobe Photoshop elements.

Suitable for PC and Mac.

I want the scanner for inputing loads of pictures from the last 10-20 years. I would of thought that I would need 1200x2400 and has to be usb2 compatible.SDF- what is the price you have seen for the Visioneer ,I have also heard it is the dogs @@@@@@@@ as well.

I have just found the Visioneer 9020 for only £69.99,that seems very cheap for a 1200x4800 scanner,but is it usb2? I like the way you load your documents etc. sideways,instead of longways.

As JIM says, the LiDE50 is a superb scanner USB"2 as well. Very fast, quiet, faithful scans and an absolute joy to use. I have had several scanners in the past, used them very little for various reasons, [Noise, slow, difficult software] but with the canon, it's on the go all the time. Regards. j.

Lol! Typical! I paid £90 for it! if you can get it for £70 go for it! if ur scanning photos it is great - can scan from negatives so you dont need to worry about faded photos

Out of interest - where you see the visioneer for £69.99?

Sorry, I got the numbers mixed up it was £99.99 for the 9020.
