Summary: I've been using this scanner w/my Mac for over 9 months mostly for scanning into PDF files and have never had a problem. The others i've tried were too small/flimsy, more expensive and took forever to scan. Great buy, really not a lot of choices out there for something like this.
Summary: I bought this scanner back in 2006 as my filing cabinets were bursting at the scenes. Eight years later, I am looking for a replacement. It got the job done, but not without causing its share of frustrations. Setting it up was a nightmare, as it took some fidgeting to get it to talk to my computer. As do most scanners, on occasion the ADF will pull two sheets together, but unlike the newer high end scanners it has no means of detecting this.
Summary: I purchased two of these and they are perfect for desktop scanning in great color or B&W. This HP Scanner is a professional model and outperforms just about any multi-purpose scanner of any brand that I have used in the past 10 years. If you need a scanner to work with your PC or MAC to do quick scanning of receipts, documents, photos, negatives; just about anything that you need to convert to digital format....this is the scanner to buy.
Summary: I'm really impressed by the many different options for scanning a document that this scanner provides. Its speed, the color quality and clarity of the text, document loading options, compatibility with Windows 7, and inexpensive cost have made me a fan!
Excerpt: As other consumers have noted, the flatbed part of this scanner works fine but is slow. The feeder works only when it wants to and that is only about half the time. It will also pretty much destroy some documents that get hung in the feeder and it chews them up. I use the feeder part the most for time saving but it is junk. Opt for a better scanner if you can afford it.. Don't waste your money on this one.
Summary: This is the 3rd that I have owned. I have one for my home office and one for my business office. The 3rd replaced my work one as after many years, it finally gave out. The replacement one was faulty - HP and Amazon were great in simply replacing it with another and had it shipped out before I even packaged up the faulty one.
