It is so slow and so troublesome

Mariane Matera, Amazon
16 July 2007
  • 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.

Don't buy if you run Vista

Duane Deen, Amazon
6 July 2007
  • 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.

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

AM, Amazon
1 July 2007
  • 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.

Software ruins good scanner

Martin Anderson, Amazon
18 June 2007
  • Summary: If you ever manage to get this working, i.e. by installing everything 'virgin' on the first day, leave it as it is. Forget upgrades, forget twiddling, forget the little niceties. Just be glad you are able to scan images and be DOUBLY glad if you are able to scan them in Photoshop without the twain...

HP 4070 on a mac

Steve Chaparro, Amazon
4 June 2007
  • 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.

Flawed software

Bao Pu, Amazon
30 May 2007
  • Summary: I bought this in 2004 and it was the newest model, so i thought that it would be relatively better than my old (cheaper) HP scanner. It is not. Like other reviewers, I also had to spend hours on the phone with tech support, who were, by the way, very friendly people. We managed to get it working.

HP 4070 Flat Bed Scanner

Robert L. O'con, Amazon
20 May 2007
  • Summary: So far one star is a gift. Having a great deal of trouble intergrating this scanner and it's software with existing HP programs in my computer. HP, through their support network has been very helpful in trying to resolve this.

The worst software EVER!!!

BoondoXaint, Amazon
6 May 2007
  • Summary: The Scanjet 4070 comes with the "HP Image Zone" software. For anyone that knows anything about scanning / image editing, this software is terrible. It does not allow you to do anything!
