Does not play with Windows 10
After a successful installation of the drivers, there were error messages saying the scanner wasn't on or plugged in - the scanner does not have an on/off button and it was plugged in fine. Several uninstall/reinstall later, some internet sleuthing revealed that this scanner just doesn't work with windows 10.

flatbed scanning is better and has more options'
A flatbed scanner can scan more than things on paper.

CanoScan Lide400
It's ok. More cheaply built than my CanoScan 8800F. And, not apparently as easy to use.
There is not a single, thorough instruction booklet on the Canon website in PDF form so had to download info, page-by-page, and assemble. A truly thankless job!

Easy Setup, easy use
I have only used this scanner a few times since receiving it, but it was very simple to connect to my computer and I’m satisfied with the scans I get. I wish it could interface with Photoshop as my old Canon scanner did, because the Photoshop Import function has more controls, but my old computer running Photoshop with the TWAIN Acquire plug-in isn’t capable of interfac...

Works great wit VueScan
I got it, followed the instructions to hook it up to my iMac with one exception I did not load the Canon software as I use VueScan. It works great with VueScan. If you have trouble with the Canon software try out VueScan.

Wonderful, but tricky to install
The scanner itself is great. It replaced my trusty Lide 110 when Windows 11 did not support it. However, I spent days trying to install the software, which would get so far and stall. I happened upon another’s post to remove everything I had downloaded, pause Windows Defense and try again. Five minutes later I was scanning.

Driver/Software won’t install
Driver will not install to my windows 11 laptop. I spent hours working at it with no success . Canon Website shows that others have had the same problem but Canon offers no solution. so I’m sending back. Darn, I really wanted this to work.

IJ Utility Scan inferior to CanoScan Toolbox 5.0
We replaced a 600F with this 400. The scanner is more awkward to use, but acceptable. The IJ Scan Utility though is far inferior to the earlier CanoScan Toolbox 5.0. In the Toolbox all the settings I change regularly, mode, scan type and output file name are on one pop-up, not on a layer below. Also, I should have total control over the output file name. I should not ha...

Canon CanoScan LiDE 400
I scan over 100 multi-page letters, the scan were done quickly and with out errors, using both my PC and my laptop, the PDF program allowed me to put each letters into a single file. Would recommended this scanner. Also did great job on scanning photos!

Bad
Was delivered today. Followed all the set-up instructions only scanned one document before it stopped scanning. Now I keep getting error codes that are not even on the list of errors/instructions provided.

Perfect, 200+ photos scanned
I'm using this to digitize old (some 90 years old) photos. Depending on size, I can scan up to 4 at a time. Using Image Capture on my Mac, it is simple to crop and rotate, and select a save to folder. 600 dpi seems to be adequate; good resolution, but reasonable file size. The scanner worked immediately after connecting to the computer. FYI, the 2 phone apps that I trie...

I like it but the driver is the worst
The driver download is confusing and you just have to go with your gut and figure out that you'll be ok. Otherwise, easy to use and pretty fast.

It's okay - maybe expectations too high for this price point.
Instructions aren't clear on how to obtain the maximum resolution that this scanner is supposed to support. Included software for "stitching" scan was disappointing. It only works to combine two images side by side you apparently can't combine top and bottom (like to scan a legal document - hello. Granted I can scan most legal documents in my other sheet feeder scann...

CanoScan LIDE 400
I like the size of the scanner... the hardware scans very nice images. However, the communications between the PC and the scanner seems to get lost once in awhile if you wait too long between scans. Restarting the application resolves the problem. Don't know if this is a hardware or a software issue. For the money... it can't be beat!

AutoScan Does Nothing For Me
I just want a JPEG from AutoScan, and it only goes me a PDF. What is Canon thinking?

Works Well For Scanning My Illustrations
I primarily have been using this scanner to scan my illustrations so that I can digitally paint them and so far it has been great for my needs. It’s quick and light but, like almost all flatbed scanners, I wish that it felt more sturdy so that I felt confident that I could carry it around in a backpack without it breaking. But I can live with just using it at home and I...

CanoScan LiDE 400 Scan Resolution
Great product. Instruction Manual could be more user friendly, /jpg' resolution limited to 600 dpi. Fully scan capability only available in 'tiff' format for photos. 4800 dpi setting has not been found.
