Any recommendations on a pretty basic flatbed scanner for light-duty text and graphics scanning? I don't need any fancy features like sheet feeder or anything like that - I just need to scan an occasional text document or picture.

A scan-to-PDF function would be nice.

An absolute MUST is compatibility with Windows 7 Professional in 64-bit edition - no VM or Virtual XP mess - the scanner MUST have working Windows 7-x64 drivers.

  • Thanks, I had my eye on that one, but unfortunately, my local Canon distributor couldn't even confirm that it works with Win7-x64 :-( – marc_s Dec 23 '09 at 15:00

I have a Canon CanoScan LiDE 60 that works fine with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bits.

Here is the Microsoft Compatibility page about it.


I've got an Epson Perfection V100 Photo (not sure if this is still available new) and while I'm typing this I'm scanning a few documents with it on Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
