Was a good scanner for a month since I bought it

VR, Amazon
30 August 2014
  • Summary: Was a good scanner for a month since I bought it. Quit working recently. Had to load the latest driver dated August 19, 2014. Now works, but scans at slightly reduced size. 8.5 x 11 page scans to around 8.45 x 10.85" page - strange.

GETS THE JOB DONE, BUT NEEDS SUPERVISION

EF Ottawa, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • 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.

When the ADF (Auto Document Feeder) works, this is a decent little machine

Eli, Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: When the ADF (Auto Document Feeder) works, this is a decent little machine. Unfortunately, I'm on my third, yes third, ADF unit. I'm glad that HP has sent me replacement parts, but this is ridiculous! The biggest reason I purchased this particular scanner was the ADF and the ability to do double-sided scanning. Unfortunately, this is turning into a case of 'you get what you pay for.

Pleased but not blown away

Kelly, Amazon
22 December 2010
  • Summary: The quality of the flat scanner is better than the average scanner on the market. The feeder on the top could use a little work, jamming is sometimes a problem. There are too many steps for two-sided scanning and the software does not perform as described in the turorial.

No Tech Support

Howard, Amazon
2 January 2010
  • Summary: Nice piece of hardware for the price, but no tech support whatsoever to correct problems: 1. Five buttons on front have no labels. Either that or the back lighting doesn't work. 2. Scan software insists on appending sequence numbers to file names with no way to shut off. 3. Typical software for a hardware company: geeky and hard to figure out.

Not for MAC; OK for Windows.

ivan, B&H Photo
19 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Not easy to use on Mac's. Gives OCR error message when scanning documents. Cannot save as a .rtf file so the file can be re-saved as a .doc file. The best thing about this scanner is the Auto Doc Scan capability.
  • Cons: Poor Software
