A Solid Multipurpose Scanner for the Price

The Canon CanoScan 4400F Color Image Scanner is quality scanner that does everything, but does nothing to exceed expectations.  I was looking for a scanner mostly for document scanning, but one with the ability to scan the occasional photo, slide, or negative.  I was able to find this model on Amazon for $88.24.  Given the price, I am satisfied with my purchase and can recommend it to anyone with similar requirements.

Pros
:
  • Under $100
  • 4800 x 9600 DPI
  • Helpful software
  • Easy scanner buttons

Cons:
  • A little bit bulky
  • Separate power cable (i.e. it is not powered from the USB cable)
  • Photo scanning is clunky and not excellent quality

It is a big hassle having to plug in the scanner with a separate power supply.  (My previous document-only scanner was powered through the USB cable and this was a big plus.)  I am actually disappointed with the scan quality for color slides.  I would not use this device to scan a large collection of family slides, but it works for getting an occasional photo for use on a web page.

So for less than $100, you can have a scanner that is easy to use and will scan pretty much anything.  If you are not overly concerned about photo quality and can live with a larger device, the added flexibility is nice.  If you want to scan a lot of photos though, I would recommend getting a photo scanner designed solely for that purpose.
