Cranky, but Still Good

James Charnock, Amazon
22 February 2009
  • Summary: I have used two of these scanners (I keep one in reserve) since 1999. Both still work. But it does not function as well with XP as it did with Windows 98. I agree with the other reviews, but add that it probably only works with the HP photo system (now defunct, also, I believe) called "PrecisionScan Lite." Hp does not provide any technical help for this discontinued model, but it does still provide some software downloads and fixes.

Good and Economical

Desert Darlene, Amazon
27 April 2006
  • Summary: This is a good older scanner that makes decent quality scans. The scanner bed is about 8 1/2 by 11, so if you need to do legal sizes, you might want to reconsider. Overall, I am satisfied with this product. If you have Windows XP, you will need to download or order the updated software directly from HP as well as any patches. The CD that usually comes with the scanner will not work with this operating system.

Great Durability, but a few thing should be noted

James Charnock, Amazon
28 March 2006
  • Summary: posted 3/28/06 by Jack [bawkbawkboo1] This is an old-style, yet long-losting scanner. It has a resolution of 600x600 DPI max, or at least that is what it says when you click on its properties. Thats about 163 KB for one image [it can be adjusted downwards]. Works best if you have Microsoft Office-as this program comes with a sub-program for scanning and viewing scanned images.

Good on Windows 98 but less good on Windows 2000.

  • Excerpt: "...it (or at least a HP device) when they wanted to purchase a scanner some years before that. First thing I noticed was that the driver CD contained Windows 98 drivers only. This was fine when I initially acquired the scanner as I had a Win98 machine to attach it to and everything integrated well and it worked without any problems. Then I updated to Windows 2000. The ’98 drivers were no good so I assumed it would be a simple case of finding the ...
  • Pros: Quick (on Windows 98 at least) .  Good quality scans .
  • Cons: Windows 2000 (lack of) support .  No power switch .

  • Excerpt: "I brought the Hp scanjet 4200c scanner second hand over two years ago and have found it to be a good buy although due to a dodgy repair by the prevous owner only half of my scanner works but i still say that is one of the best scanners around. It does not do negatives but then only the expensive ones do. Basically it does all you could want it to do. The preview time using the Windows xp scanner and camera wizzard it takes just 15 secs to do a ...
  • Pros: Very quick at preview and scan
  • Cons: Price

  • Excerpt: "ok, so im not the best when it comes to PC's and i feel that i need somethign that ti easy to use and easy to set up. I asked my local computer specialist shop, which scanner would be the easiest for me to use and which wouldnt take ages and ages to load, or take ages and ages to understand how to get it to work. I followed all the instructions word for word, and when it came to setting it up, it wasnt that hard, but when it came to scnning ...
  • Pros: looks good, doesnt take up much space
  • Cons: hard to load onto pc, (software) not enough tech support, and takes ages to load pictures

  • Excerpt: "...PC’s and a CD for HP PrecisionScan LT Software with HP Intelligent Scanning Technology Version 2.01c and a huge glossy sheet printed on both sides with instruction on what to do. On one side of this A2 size paper were details, in four languages, on how to set up the scanner with particular emphasis on making sure that the “Locking Slider” was pushed to the ‘unlock’ position. Although installing the software took precedence ...
