Bad hardware _and_ software -- avoid this scanner!

AudioEngineer "Pablo", Amazon

  • Summary: I owned a 5590 until yesterday. It jammed for the last blankety-blank time, when I put a large dollar value check (8.5 x 11") through the document feeder and it jammed halfway through the duplex scan.

  • Pros: well packaged and easy to install and set up. was able to determine file location for saving documents easily.
  • Cons: ADF (automatic document feeder) does not work. Jams easily. We could not get further than one sheet, did not scan two sided. Jammed every time it tried to scn second side. Essentially useless for desired purpose. I am returning today

  • Summary: Garbage, absolute garbage from the hardware to the software. I work on office equipment for a living. If you have one of these things pick it up and smash it against the wall.

  • Summary: This scanner was advertised as compatible with Windows XP. It was not!!! It came with several installation cds, including installation cds for Windows XP and Windows. I tried to install using each, but kept getting error messages that the installation was not complete.

A word of warning

Alcam2, Amazon
30 October 2012
  • Summary: The HP Scanjet 5590 failed to work with YEP, a reputable, easy-to-use Filing Software. It worked fairly well as a stand alone; very slow, but it did the job. Research the product thoroughly to make sure it will meet your expectations.
