Summary: I BOUGHT THIS AS A GIFT FOR MY HUSBAND, WHO IS HARD TO BUY FOR AND HE REALLY LIKES IT SO I WOULD DEFINETELY BUY IT AGAIN. I USE IT AS WELL. IT HAS REALLY COME IN HANDY MANY TIMES. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Summary: This scanner and software is fine if you only use XP, but I bought this 2 years ago, about the time Vista was coming out so I thought HP would make it compatible with Vista. No such luck, HP wrote the software for XP and then dumped support.
Summary: Was worried after reading the negative reviews. Install went flawlessly, but the Mac (OSX 10.6.5) didn't find the scanner at first. Reboot and unplug and plug in the USB cable solved that. Scans are great for what the machine is.
Summary: If you are looking for a high quality piece of junk look no furthur. Besides having the worst software I've seen, when it does work it's dreadfully slow (not scanning, just warming up to scan.
Summary: It is much slower than the Epson scanner I had and much slower than the HP one I have at work hooked to a PC. It scans when I didn't ask it to. Often I have to unplug it to make it stop. The light won't go off. It freezes up Photoshop CS.
Summary: I bought the HP 4070 Scanner and used it with Windows XP for a couple years. Last Christmas, I bought a new laptop with Vista Home installed, and HP had no Vista driver available for the 4070.
Summary: I had no problem with the software. I bought it to scan a ton of photos into my computer, but at the rate it scans it will take me forever. Like other complaints, I previously had a HP scanner and could do batch scans. Not with this one.
hp has consistantly had the worst software ever...

Summary: ...and this scanners software is no exception. I do graphic design for a print shop and I needed to replace my ancient and worn out epson expression 800. The specs for the ScanJet 4070 looked good so i gave it a shot. dont get me wrong, the scan quality is ok, but this thing is SOOOO SLOW!!
