Today weíre taking another look at an item for the budget shopper. The Canon CanoScan LiDE 20 is only going to set you back about fifty bucks. For that reason alone itís worth taking a look at. The real question is how much, if any, suffering will you have to deal with as a result of going on the cheap side for a scanner? Letís take a look at this sleek little piece of machinery.
Canon is known for quality when it comes to their cameras, camcorders, and scanners. Both Canonís reputation and the $50 price tag were determining factors when I decided to purchase the Canoscan LiDE 20. LiDE stands for LED (Light Emitting Diode) inDirect Exposure. To be honest, I rarely even have a need for a scanner, which is why I took my Lexmark X-75 PrinTrio back to BestBuy and used the in-store credit to get a decent printer. However, I found out that when the occasion does arise and you need a scanner, you need a scanner.
Nine times out of ten, Iím out to get the best bang for my buck, as opposed to latest and greatest. So looking for a scanner, I was looking to find something with a sub-$75 price tag that would get the job done. Several things stood out when I was looking over the specs of the LiDE 20 - first and foremost was the $50 price.
