Product Description

Amazon.com

Providing home users with stunningly professional results, the Canon D1250U2 combines crisp detail with a simple design that allows you true versatility in scanning documents. With 1,200 x 2,400 dpi resolution and 48-bit color, scans are sharp and vibrant.

The scanner's flat bed handles pages up to 8.5 x 11 inches and 3-D objects such as books and magazines. Once your originals are in place, you can e-mail, scan, or copy them at the touch of a button.

Fully compatible with PC systems (Windows 98 or higher, Pentium III recommended), the scanner connects via USB interface and comes complete with a software package that lets you design and manage your graphics. Canon's advanced technology automatically corrects tone and shadow, while also removing imperfections from the originals, so you're more likely to get the perfect scan the first time.

The scanner is backed by a one-year warranty that covers parts and labor and includes Instant Exchange service.

From the Manufacturer

It's easy to achieve spectacular 1,200 x 2,400 dpi, 48-bit results--and take advantage of 281 trillion possible colors--with your D1250U2 scanner. Four external buttons automate the entire scanning process. In one step, you can scan, copy, or e-mail your documents. Canon's integrated Quick Automatic Retouching and Enhancement technology (QARE) automatically removes dirt and scratches from images, while STAD technology (Stabilized Tone-curve Auto Drawing) instinctively corrects tone and gamma fields and optimizes highlights and shadows. Richer, more robust images are at your fingertips.

Canon's advanced Z-Lid expansion top lifts vertically and lies flat to create the space needed for bulky items, such as books and magazines, to ensure clear, high-quality scans. Innovative included software gives you the power to scan multiple photos at once and transfer them to CDs easily. The D1250U2 scanner features the state-of-the-art USB 2.0 interface for incredibly fast image transfer and scanning speeds that are up to 4x faster (based on Canon industry standard testing) than USB 1.1-equipped Window-based computers.

It seems to have been replaced by the D125OU2F.

I highly recommend this scanner for anybody in the market for a scanner.

No wating time to warm up the lamp before each scan.

I purchased the Canon D1250U2 and the HP 3570C. The HP model
cost a little more but the difference in quality is amazing. The HP model is much better than the Canon and even scans faster.
The Canon picture did not have very good details. With a picture
with someone's head, the HP defined the hair very clearly as well as the rest of the picture, the Canon model kind of blurred
everything together.
I do not recommend this scanner and I am returning it to Amazon.

So far so good, great buy for thirty-seven dollars (with the ten dollar Holiday Gift Certificate). It's a PC Magazine editors choice, so that's good enough for me. If you want some reviews before spending your cash, search for the D1250U2F unit on this site. They are the same scanner, except the F model comes with a transparency unit and USB 2.0 card.

I used to work for Canon USA as a Software Quality Assurance Engineer and tested many Canon scanner and printer drivers in the past. As far as this scanner goes - I wouldn't buy another one again! The problem is in the scanner's driver, it has to recalibrate every time it scans a page. It takes 8 sec., so 8sec. times 10 pages, that's 80sec. waiting time where my other older Canon scanner does the scan right away! No wating time to warm up the lamp before each scan. What a shame !!

This scanner is more than enough for the money it costs. It works fine with XP and has a good picture quality scanning documents or photos.

I purchased three of these ....My scanners worked perfectly, no problems at all, with Windows XP Home, XP Professional, and Windows 2000. Plug-and-play. Also, canon does offer drivers for this scanner online on their website, someone just needs to do a little hunting to find them. Color reproduction is great, resolution is good, I found that I didn't need to do any color correction or editing with this scanner. It's not very fast if you don't have usb 2.0 but still decent. (with a newer usb 2.0 card or motherboard, it will scan full color pages in seconds, literally).

In general, I found this to be an excellent scanner for the price. But I did have a few issues with it. First of all, the underside of the glass was filthy. It was fogged/marked in 4 places that I could see. Because there is no way to open the scanner (that I can see) to clean the glass myself, I will have to exchange this scanner for another. Second, the scanner does seem to need to "Adjust the Lamp" every time you do a scan, as a previous reviewer noted. I'm not sure why this is necessary. Finally, there is no on-off switch that I could see. The scanner does seem to be "on" all the time, which seems to be a common "feature" of many electronics today that I could do without.
On the plus side, the scanning software does a nice job handling multi-picture scans. The time this will save me in scanning in family photos is worth the minor problems above. And I found the scan quality to be quite acceptable compared to previous scanners I've owned. I had no problems setting up the scanner under WinXP Pro.

I needed a reasonably priced, easy-to-use scanner to copy photos and documents into a genealogy program. After several weekends at the electronics and computer stores, and even more hours online, I purchased this scanner (on a Sunday night, and received it Tuesday! WOW!). It was easy to hookup (it just took seconds) and the software, though it looks very complicated, is very easy to use. My scanner is working great with Windows XP (it comes with specific instructions about installing with the XP operating system) and is fast enough for my needs. I am very pleased with it, and would recommend it to anyone who needs a scanner for personal use.

I bought this scanner due to its low price and the many reviews that gave it it high marks for its scanned images. Canon also offers the D1250U2F model which allows you to scan film and slides. Since I mainly wanted a scanner to scan documents (not photos) and since I have a computer with a USB 2.0 port, I chose the D1250U2 model instead. I've had it a couple weeks and am very happy with the quality of the scans. The buttons on the front of the scanner can be set to start your custom applications when pressed and I can scan documents at 600DPI in a few seconds. I haven't had any problems using the scanner with Windows XP. I did contact Canon since there was no mention of the D1250U2 drivers on their site. I was told to download the latest drivers and software for the D1250U2F (which I did) since both scanners are basically the same model. Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase.
