I was wondering if anyone else has had any major incidents with this
scanner? I purchased one last week at Fry's for cheap ($30). I
immediately brought it home and hooked it up to the USB port on my
keyboard. I installed the CanoScan software and my computer froze. I
rebooted and after some struggle was able to successfully install the
software and even got some scans out of it. Aside from the struggle I
was pretty impressed with the scan quality and was willing to forgive
the headache of cheesy install software for the price that I paid.
