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.
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.
Excerpt: Scanner is used for saving files that are large and take up physical space, electronice stored and reduces paper files. Greatly reduces space and need for binders in my office. Easier to send electronically rather than fedex mailing. Files send instantly and cuts down on response time while people are waiting to receive fedex. The clarity of the electronically saved document is not 100% clear and readable.
Pros: Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Works on Network
