Problem-free scanner

Andrew, Amazon
27 August 2011
  • Summary: This scanner has been my family's sole scanner for several years now. The scan quality is excellent, and the ease of use makes scanning possible for even the most technology illiterate!

HP 4070 on a mac

Steve Chaparro, Amazon
8 February 2011
  • 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. Slide scans are very good but if you ask for hi res be prepared to wait for awhile. For the money it is a great little scanner.

  • Summary: I haven't had a chance to use it much but from what I can tell, it will fit my purpose very well. I like because its a space saver and this is mainly why I bought it.

Don't buy if you run Vista

Duane Deen, Amazon
29 October 2008
  • 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. They half attempted to write a driver for Vista but it is slow and you can't use HP software, so now I have to stay with XP. This will probably be my last HP purchase.

HP 4070 Scanner NOT Vista-Compatible

VirtualUser, Amazon
23 December 2007
  • 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. I did a lot of searching on HP's web site, and subscribed to their tech newsletters, but never found any solution. After several months, HP provided a "minimal driver", but it would not work with HP's scan software, so the front panel buttons to scan to printer, etc.

5 April 2006
  • 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!! The first scan of the day every day takes about 3 or 4 minutes just for the scanner to warm up!

Run, Dont walk away from this one !

Frank, Amazon
24 March 2006
  • 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.) Couple that with a terrible 90 day warranty and poor tech support (sorry HP, I just don't speak Hindu) this must be one of the worse computer items I have ever purchased.

NO! New HP Image Pro and Image Zone Software for Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger) is NOT great!

AM "am amazon", Amazon
6 January 2006
  • Summary: I gave this software (really the scanner is nothing without the software) 5/5 rating last time based on the good results I got scanning photos. I should have waited until I scanned documents and used the Scan Pro (more like amateur) software a lot more. The software keeps crashing and the buttons on the front dont work anymore - even thought there is a daemon from HP that eats away 6% of the CPU load all the time.
