Introduced in 2003, the CanoScan LiDE 80 was an early LED based flatbed scanner. It was targetted at high end consumer and business users, though these features are now considered mid range. It has 4 buttons: copy, scan, file, email.

Current compatibility

There are widespread complaints that this scanner is not supported in Windows 7. However, with Windows 7 Windows XP Mode the scanner works with the oringinal software and drivers.


It was powered completely through USB. It did not require a warm-up period, which improvement the time to scan a page over most scanners. It had a smart metal lid that looks better than most of the subsequent models, which have switched to plastic.

It is the predecessor to the CanoScan LiDE 210 and siilar models.

It included a light for scanning film.

It could scan an A4 sized page in black and white in about 14 seconds (up to 600dpi), and a color page in 20 seconds (up to 300 dpi). Higher resolutions are supported, but the page speed is much worse.
