      High Capacity, small footprint...space saving, quiet and literally comes with SEVERAL great programs including a full PDF editor (not Adobe but just as good). We use this product in a high volume charitable pharmacy and free health clinic (over 20K unique patients). We use it to scan and secure documents for upload to our EMR and patient assistance software. We ordered 4 from B & H...and will be ordering several more in the future. A good value and great product!

      I've only been using this scanner a few days and it appears to be a decent scanner, but watch out for the really old software it comes with, like PaperPort and OmniPage. If you try to select "Standard PDF" or "Searchable PDF" as the default in PaperPort it displays an error saying you need OmniPage 15. To scan directly to "Searchable PDF" (as they claim you can do) you have to use the Canon interface and scan to eCopy instead. When purchasing a new product that comes with software, I expect the latest versions. Doesn't have to be the "pro" versions, but the latest standard versions are a minimum. Instead, I get 6 year old software that's crippled and forced to purchase upgrades

        I use this product to scan multiple pages very quickly to be saved for future use.

        I can scan as a PDF or as a JPG which is exactly what I needed.

        So far I haven't had any problems with the scanner. But I have only had it for less than a month. If anything changes then my review will reflect it.

To scan directly to "Searchable PDF" (as they claim you can do) you have to use the Canon interface and scan to eCopy instead. When purchasing a new product that comes with software, I expect the latest versions. Doesn't have to be the "pro" versions, but the latest standard versions are a minimum. Instead, I get 6 year old software that's crippled and forced to purchase upgrades

                                The setup instructions were poor and I had issues getting it set up (and I've sent up many, many electrical devices)... I ended up having to call customer service to fill in the gaps - and, in fact, did get the scanner up and running in the end. After getting setup the scanner worked well.

                                    Comments about Canon imageFORMULA DR-C125 Document Scanner:

                                    I was using the product strictly for text documents, letter and legal.

                                    Pro: Very fast scans, even of double-sided documents. Nice quality images.

                                    Con: Software was very hard to understand and cumbersome to use. Documentation was lacking.
                                    Copies consistently came out skewed, regardless of adjustments. The software is supposed to correct for this, but didn't or didn't do a good job.

                                    When I opened it in Acrobat and de-skewed there, the software straightened out the image, that the Canon software did not. I used this with a pc -- did not try on a Mac, but I would assume the same results.

                                    I expected more for the price and the brand. I returned the product.

                                    This is the second DR-C125 I have bought (this one for another office) as it is a excellent scanner. It is fast. To be able to delete scanned pages that are not needed is a great attribute. It is very versatile. My only complaint is the scanner jams at the slightest imperfection in the paper.
