Not for Windows

Paul Bruesch, Amazon
30 August 2002
  • Summary: This was my first scanner.... it's going back a day after buying it. Easy to set up on Win XP, but the interface is horrendous... doesn't begin to look like any Windows app I've ever used. Looks more like their HP-UX (ie Unix) legacy GUIfied. About as easy as Unix scripting (ugggh), too.

Taking it back to the store, software is a joke

MR E Boy, Amazon
30 August 2002
  • Summary: I've had this product for a days and it scans ok but it is unacceptable in other ways. - Most importantly, when I press scan the software chugs away for 30 seconds before a dialog comes up. On further investigation, the software supplied is an amazing piece of bloatware.

Stay away

  • Summary: Have had the 3570c for 4 years, connected to my mac. It's always been marginal, and lately virtually useless--even after reloading scanner software numerous times and troubleshooting. The software is horrible and extremely unstable.

Clumsy Interface

A. Zurn, Amazon
30 August 2002
  • Summary: I recently bought the hp scanjet 3570c to work with my OS X Mac only because my old scanner was no longer combatable with the new operating system. I have been less than pleased with the performance of my scanner.

Don't try this with a Mac

Amazon
30 August 2002
  • Summary: I'm sure the scanner is fine if you can get the accompanying software to work. It's supposed to work with a Mac, but it didn't work for me. I was able to scan two photos, but after that it crashed my computer every time I tried to use it. It went back for a refund.

A good bet

Amazon
30 August 2002
  • Summary: I purchased this after returning the Microtek 4850 (which I kept for only one day). The Microtek had a better price, better warranty and better reviews. Unfortunately, although I am an experienced computer user, I found their program confusing and very difficult to navigate.

use it with photoshop and its a no-brainer for $20.00 (used)

Timothy Mock, Amazon
30 August 2002
  • Summary: I just found this scanner at a yard sale for $20.00 bucks and its just great! I have a serious 11x17 scanner and yet another, older HP scanner and both are fine, but for $20.00 dollars, I now have a 'portable' that I can carry in a canvas tote bag and use in libraries (most libraries don't let you...

I do not recommend purchasing this scanner

Amazon
30 August 2002
  • Summary: I have been helping a friend of mine with this "thing" for months!! Typically it lasts for a few scans and then the gears go out. He has replaced it three times at WalMart and is suspicious that they keep putting the same scanner back on the shelf.
