CanoScan LiDE120

A single USB connection carries power and data for easy setup (computer not included).

Simple one-touch operation

You'll enjoy exceptional convenience as well. A single USB cable connection supplies power and data for simplified hookup. Four buttons on the '120's front panel allow easy, one-touch control of the entire scanning process. You can choose the basic "Auto Scan" button to transfer your documents to your computer, or if you have a printer connected, hit the "Copy" button to create a print. The "PDF" button lets you scan items and save them as a PDF. The "Send" button automatically passes a scanned image along as a ready-to-email file or uploads it to the cloud through third-party Evernote® or Dropbox® software apps.

Great little scanner for the price. Totally USB powered, nice image quality for basic scanning. Simple to use. Software is basic but very adequate. Love the one-button scan-to-PDF feature.

Features

Overview: The Canon CanoScan LiDE120 compact flatbed scanner allows you to produce scans with a maximum optical resolution of 2400 x 4800. It features 48-bit color depth with over 281 trillion possible colors. Using the included software, you can set the output resolution to up to 19,200 x 19,200 dpi (interpolated). The LiDE120 can deliver a letter-sized color scan in approximately 16 seconds.

3-Color LED Light Source: The CanoScan LiDE120 uses three color (RGB) LEDs as its light source.

USB 2.0 Hi Speed: The scanner uses the USB 2.0 High Speed interface for both data and power. There is no separate power cord, so you can use the scanner wherever you use your laptop.

Z-Lid Expansion Top: The LiDE120 features a double-hinged top that makes it easier to scan thick documents and books. The Z-Lid Expansion Top raises approximately one inch so that it lies flat against the top of the book or document.

Controls: There are 4 EZ buttons on the front panel of the scanner:

  • PDF: scans items and easily creates PDF files, then saves them
  • Auto Scan: detects the item type automatically and saves them to a computer
  • Copy: scans items and prints them on a printer
  • Send: scans items and attaches the scanned images to an email, or sends them to an application. The items can be sent directly to the cloud when Evernote or Dropbox software is installed on your computer.

Data Formats: The images can be saved in several different formats, depending upon application and computer (Windows or Macintosh). The files can be saved as:

  • PNG (.png): A data format often used on websites, PNG is suitable for editing saved images.
  • JPEG (.jpg): A data format often used on websites and for digital camera images. JPEG features high compression rates. JPEG images slightly degrade every time they are saved, and cannot be returned to their original state. JPEG is not available for black and white images.
  • TIFF (.tif): A file format featuring a relatively high compatibility between various computers and applications. TIFF is suitable for editing saved images. Some TIFF files are incompatible. IJ Scan Utility supports the following TIFF file formats: Uncompressed black & white binary, Uncompressed RGB (8 bits per channel), Uncompressed RGB (16 bits per channel), and Uncompressed Grayscale.
  • PDF (.pdf): A file format developed by Adobe Systems for electronic documents. It can be used on various computer and operating systems, and can be exchanged between people who use different operating systems, fonts, etc. regardless of the differences.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

i owned one but it is broken. i needed a replacement [ deborah  Dec 14, 2015 ]
Past Canon scanners have been very reliable. The only reason I'm ordering a new one is the driver for the old one doesn't work for Windows 8.1 and above. The 15 year old scanner otherwise would have been fine. I think it's a disgusting waste and environmentally unethical to force customers to throw away a perfectly functioning device just because of an OS upgrade. [ James  Dec 07, 2015 ]
