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.
Summary: Bought this when I had to give up previous HP flatbed due to changing to Win 7. My experience with the other one was positive. Found this unit used at a fantastic price. Really didn't expect much, but turned to be out as good as the one I had to give up. The unit is not terribly fast, but having the feeder on top helps as you can stack some stuff on and walk away for a while. Occasionally "misfires" but usually performs well. Like the copy, file, and etc.
Excerpt: The unit itself works great, but the software is terrible to work with. It is hard to save files with the name that you want to use with HP software. fortunatly there is software available at low prices that fix this problem. The machine itself works great. The ability to scan both sides of the page is very usefull to me. If you don't need this feature, leave it off, it works much faster.
Summary: Very good scanner! Works very well at a good speed. The preview feature as it is scanning the pages comes in very handy. Works very well with the Windows 7 operating system. Would buy this unit again.
Summary: Scanner does a very good job of doing what it has done for me thus far.
Pros: Fast. Thus far, have only used it to scan and make hard copies.
Cons: HP sales support answered all my questions (via email) very well during the pre-sales period. After the sale it was obvious to me that they did not even read my email, much less answer it accurately.
Summary: ScanJet 5590 works as advertised. Using the automatic feeder allows you to scan several pages at a time and save it in your computer in diferent folders and formats.Speed is not very fast, but for the common home or small office use it is good enough. Overall It is a good product.
Summary: I bought my scanner 5 years ago off E-Bay. It was used and I was pleased with the purchase. I agree with the reviews from other owners. It is a little difficult to operate at times. It does jam and is slow when scanning both sides. I have scanned thousands of different sized papers and it does a good job. It worked well 90% of the time and I got rid of a file cabinet of paper. That is what I bought if for. To get rid of stored files and simplify.
