Hates Macs more than Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer combined

Clyde A., Newegg
21 August 2011
  • Summary: All in or all out! If you're going to say you're mac compatible, make sure your software works, and update it to the latest OS or say that it's orphaned.
  • Pros: Price, feature set, ability to do flatbed as well as ADF scanning
  • Cons: slow, prone to jam, duplex scan slow and complex, software bug will make macs running 10.6 and 10.7 run at 100%. This software, even while not being used, will drain a laptop battery and max out the fans.

Great HP name, poor execution

Kathleen E. Leavitt "Digital Document Man", Amazon
19 January 2010
  • Summary: This is really not a horrible product. HP claims on its site that this scanner is compatible with Mac OSX 10.6 Not until after I got the scanner and tried to download the software that I discovered HP did not plan to release 10.6 software til the coming spring. Besides that i'm sure it works great with other computers...The duplex is really truly slow...

HP's Worst Product Ever

Shahzad Chowdry, Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: After using the 5590 for a week, the question I keep asking myself : "Is this really an HP product?!?" I am truly disappointed that a company I respect as much as HP would design such an awful product. The major flaws I have found with this product: 1. Auto Document Feeder jams up quite frequently and there is no way to remove the document short of brute force!

User Review

Phillips H., Newegg
21 June 2009
  • Summary: I ran out of room discussing the cons for the HP 5590. The software works, but is unwieldy, and prone to developing errors. Like on my computer, trying to install an update that fails to install, every time I open the program up.
  • Pros: This scanner has few pros...... The scans are good quality, but this scanner is a pain to use. I have been using one owned by my employer from a home office setting for the past three years. I am changing employers, and will recommend this piece of equipment just go to salvage. It is not worth the postage to send it back to my company's headquarters. I am already shopping for its replacement.
  • Cons: The automatic document feeder (ADF) o this scanner is total junk. The particular scanner I have was used in an office setting for two-years before I took it to my home office, and the original ADF was replaced under warranty. But, the design is so flawed that the replacement ADF quickly malfunctioned again. When the scanner does function correctly in the automatic mode, every page will be scanned with about an 8-degree tilt to the left. You cannot feed documents with ...

Difficult Installation

Anthony Schofield "Tiburon Tony", Amazon
12 June 2009
  • Summary: I have just installed this scanner so I cannot comment on its long term effectiveness but the installation process was hellacious, probably the most difficult peripheral I have had to install in a considerable length of time. There is an inordinate amount of voodoo science with the product. It doesn't work with a surge protector, only if plugged directly into an outlet (I don't know if a simple power strip works); I have never encountered such a restriction before.
