I'm using with Ubuntu 17.10 and it all just worked perfectly out of the box. I plugged in the one USB cable, opened up the Simple Scan program that comes with Ubuntu and clicked scan (no driver/software installation at all). I have not had it long enough to test its longevity, but so far I'm impressed. It looks good, the few scans I have done look about as good as my previous scanner and it isn't too noisy.

Well! Thought it would be more quality for that price. It feels a little tasty! And problems with dust that make white dots on photos, it seems to be under the glass plate. Should test it more and see what the rating ends with ..

Works well in Linux for me. Nothing to complain about.

So far working well on my 32bit windows 10 installation, even after reboot. installed the latest driver strait from the website, before plunging it in. I didn’t even touch the included CD. Will update this if i hit the USB drop-out problems others have reported. Scanner dose nice quality scans for the pricer range (-sub $200nz) nice and detailed, auto exposure it good, colours seem accurate on first use. It dose however feel very light and flimsy. My last scanner was a HP ScanJet 3400c. Those are built like tanks! I would still be using it if it were comparable with win 10 and 64bit machines. Being USB bus powered dose mean i can easily move it about the house, if i need more space for big scanning jobs. Software dose its best to try hide the advanced options from the noobs, but there all there if you dig down a bit. Overall its probably the best current model flatbed scanner your going to get without negative scanning functionality, something i have little use for at the moment. Update. All working well. I wonder if the USB dropout is caused by The stupid "USB power saving" feature in windows. Something i usually disable on my machines. Doing so has solved many odd problems with all sorts of equipment.

This is my second CanonScan Lide 220, and both have worked flawlessly - but only for a short time. After about 3-4 months of use, and about 2,000 scans so fail it. My conclusion is that this is a scanner solely for those who rarely have need of a scanner. Then maybe it lasts one year, anyway, before submitting for good.

Works! My first scanner. Provides shadow-patterns on the edge of the documents and pictures. As if the light fell obliquely on the edge of the paper. To top it becomes a shadow and unders will be bright. With software provided can not I scan of over 1200 dpi ...?! The program is grovyxigt, especially, I think badly about that you can not quickly choose the format (TIFF / PNG / JPG / PDF and quality) but must go into the settings before. Right slow, compared to scanner that is better MFP (printer / copier). No software is actually poor. Thicker in reality than the perceived image. Keep it standing on end works, but the lid does not close at the top then. Have also experienced the software hangs, but only when they will scan multiple sheets to one (1) PDF. For its price, yes 6-7 of 10 maybe. But my buying advice is, go up on the MFP with duplex scanner for documents, and photos go up in quality. Most importantly, the software!

edit: Discovered that possibly reason that the scanners worked a little unstable is that it needs to sit in a USB 2.0 site, and not a USB 3.0 site. Appears to solve the problem. Installed in Windows 8.1. First thought you could just plug it in and install but then I had to reinstall it because of something messing around with the driver. Downloaded drivers from Canon's website. Should not the buttons work for direct scanning. Sometimes hangs scan. Scans through Canon's own programs IJ Scan Utility. Have not installed all the bundled software. Very pale support forums for the product. Maybe they should be installed throughout the canons suite (except the gallery program) from the beginning instead of just selecting the scanner driver ... I have used Canon products then before, but I think that this scanner should they have done much easier to use. I was enticed to buy LiDE 220 because the buttons in the front which I thought seemed practical to scan documents faster. But I'm back to manually open a program and scan. Should you have a scanner is good, but you may possibly spend some time to scan.
