      Answer

      Once my PC 'updated' to Windows 10 my Canon multi function copier/printer SCANNER drivers no longer worked. I went through MANY frustrating hours for several days to try and get them to communicate. I finally gave up and bought this Epson Perfection v39. I got rid of my flatbed scanner many years ago and really didn't want to get another one because of the space it took up on my desk. This flatbed scanner is awesome! It's compact enough to fit on my desk using the built-in kickstand. On most one-page documents and receipts, I don't even have to pull it out and lay it flat. Just leave the scanner on it's kickstand and it will work. Worked GREAT with Windows 10 right away. Best $$ ever spent! This little sucker is FAST too. Once it scans your first page, you can reload the subsequent pages while the scanner resets internally to the 'home' position. Comes with all the software you need too! I use it to archive documents mainly. Scan receipts, warranties, everything to make a more efficient paperless office. I make PDF files several times a day with it and it's always reliable and a pleasure. Scan handwritten notes for customer files and emails. The PDF files are text-searchable too. Easily makes copies too. For multiple page documents, configure your '.pdf' button on the machine to the scan settings you want, and then just keep hitting the start button on the machine. Once you're done scanning, click on the 'finish' button on the software and it will save the multiple page .pdf file when you reach the last page. No complaints. Love it for our small business. Pull the top straight off and you can place thicker books on it for scanning.

                Answer

                About 3 feet, but it is a standard USB -> micro USB cable, so you would be able to replace it with whatever length cable you need.

                    This is mostly for photos and documents, but works with drawings, old photos and textured items such as a cloth cross stitch. You can scan and save to JPEG, TIFF, PDF, PNG and BMP formats.

                      Answer

                      USB 3.0 is faster than USB 2.0, but you have to ask if that really makes any difference. The scanning process much takes longer than the data transmission via USB, so a faster USB wouldn't result in a noticeable improvement in the speed of the whole process.
