Just been to my local Tesco Home Plus branch in Denton and they had the Canoscan LiDE 100 flatbed scanner for just £29.97, on half price sale.

I've had to buy a new scanner as my old one wasn't compatible with Windows 7. This one is.

Specifications are here: google.co.uk/pro…ecs

Love my old Canon Lide scanner, espcially because of the size and the fact it's USB powered. But don't you think the HP Officejet Plus 6500A is a much better value for money purchase?

Which model did you have before?

I think it was the LiDE 30. No support for Win 7.

I only wanted a scanner, not printer. There was also a Canon all in one for £29.97 in Tesco but like I said, I didn't need the printer part.

My Lide 25 works in Win7 so your 30 should too (I use it via the Canon Toolbox utility).

The HP uses XL cartridges, has a sheet feeder for the scanner & fax, fully networked for scanning and printing......

It's true, the LiDE 30 doesn't work in Win 7. I tried everything to get it to work - never managed to do it.
Strangely works fine in XP & Vista O_o

Very strange.

I also tried everything but had to give up in the end.

Only good if you need dedicated scanning for photos etc.
Any paperwork an All-in-One is just as good

...you mentioned that you have a Canon Lide 25 scanner works with Windows … ...you mentioned that you have a Canon Lide 25 scanner works with Windows 7...did you have to install anything in particular and would it be possible to just ask if you could please double check which one you use as if it i the 25 I might see if I can buy one of those



1. install ScanGear
2. install Toolbox
3. restart computer
4. plug-in scanner
5. open toolbox utility to scan

That's how I did it 30seconds ago, when I tried it on my Thinkpad (Windows 7 32bit).

Once again, personally I would not bother buying a dedicated scanner these days. The Officejet Plus 6500 is a fully networked (wired and wireless) scanner with sheed feeder and very sensibly priced extra large ink cartridges. At just £65.94 after cashback it is amasing value for money.

Hope this helps

Thank you so much for the information, I really appreciate it, it helps a lot.
We need to get a flatbed scanner because we have a laser printer already and no space for anything larger (or taller) than a flatbed scanner otherwise we wouldn't be able to open the lid as it's in a small space.
Do you think having windows 7 64bit will make any difference?
All we want is a cheap and cheerful scanner which will work on occasional paperwork, this does seem ideal for the job.

The Canon Lide with it's bus powered design is fantastic because it's just 1 cable for data and power. Mine is tucked away with the books on a large shelf and I only pull it out when I need to do a scan. Saves a lot of space.

The download section on the Canon website doesn't specify 32 or 64-bit, just says Windows 7. So my guess would be that they will work with both.

In the FAQ on the website it gives a list of scanners that work with Windows 7...
