Summary: Right out of the box, this scanner would bind up, crash, crash my computer, etc. I've got to hand it to HP. It's been years since I've seen the blue screen of death - and good old HP managed to accomplish that on my Vista system! The Auto feed tray is supposed to accomodate 40 pages. The most I've tried stocking it with is 20 and my most successful "run" to date is 4 and a half pages scanned before crashing.
Summary: I bought this scanner because I needed one with the automatic document feeder. I bought it to replace my Canon LideScan 90 which only works for single documents. However, had I gotten a 2.0 USB cable instead of the old 1.0 USB cable that was sent to me by the seller, installation of the driver & software and the appropriate function of the scanner could have been a breeze.
Summary: I was looking for a flatbed scanner compatible with Windows 7 since my older scanner wouldn't support Windows 7. I purchased the HP 7650 to replace my HP 7450C. I actually prefer my older scanner because the software is easier to use for the types of scanning I do. The HP 7650 has been working well and I hope to be able to get used to the operating software for the scanner.
Summary: The scanner itself has adjustable buttons. As long as your computer is turned on, you can do one button photocopies in which the scanner sends the scan direct to your printer. The buttons can be set with preset preferences to allow quick control of settings for different document types. The ADF (Automated Document Feeder) works well for standard 8.5 x 11 paper. The scanner can automatically scan both sides of the document and automatically feed up to stacks of paper.
This product SW sucks. HP ScanJet 7650 Flatbed Scanner with Auto Document Feeder (L1940A#B1H).

Summary: This product SW sucks: HP ScanJet 7650 Flatbed Scanner with Auto Document Feeder (L1940A#B1H. 1). It arrive dead: DOA. It sounds and griding terribly. I had to return. 2). No Product road map installation; they did not send it. 3). The installation SW for this product sucks. It took me 3 (three) times to successfully install the SW. Each install took a long, long, long, and very time to complete. 4). Poorly test SW and its installation process. 5).
Summary: The product comes bundeled with good software. However, the scanner itself has serious issues. Most notably, scan speed and feeder reliability. Making things worst, clearing a paper jam is a significant amount of time. I did not realize how terrible a product this is until I bought a Fujitsu S510 (from Amazon). The difference is night and day. The fujitsu is extremely easy to use, fast, and reliable. When it jam, it is straight forward to clear the jam.
Summary: Comments about HP Scanjet 7650: I love scanners and really make them work for me when I am using them. I would rather a scanner that I own live up to its name and work as hard as I do instead of just giving it a few tasks a day. I put this compact scanner to work and it did twice the amount of work I in the half the time of my old scanner. How could I ever go back and say anymore than that! I was very impressed on the quality as well as how easy it is to operate.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible, Works on Network
Summary: Comments about HP Scanjet 7650: It is doing the job that we got it to do and it is doing it very very well. I can't really complain at all. We are getting really good quality. I wasn't happy spending so much on a scanner, but in the end it has been worth it. Now if in the next model they can make it a bit faster, I'll really be happy.
