Summary: Or so it would seem if HP had their say about its customers. I paint on large canvases and when I discovered this scanner, I thought I had it all! Before that, the best I could do for my money (or lack of) was to take crappy digital photos and do my best in Photoshop to correct lens distortion and...
Summary: HP has a winning product with this scanner in my book. Not only is it beautiful to look at, takes up less valuable desktop real estate, but it produces beautiful scans- quickly. I needed a machine that could scan pages from books and old manuscripts without damaging them.
Summary: In spite of the negative publicity with the "banding" issues other consumers have experienced, I really wanted to try this unit for a number of reasons, including the small footprint and the unique versatility of the scanner. I'm running a Macintosh Powerbook with the latest system OS 10.3.7.
Summary: I'm a network administrator (among other things!!) and my boss decided to buy this scanner for my department. I do a LOT of scanning and I don't have any complaints about this scanner. We've had it for about a year without any problems.
Summary: I loved the design of this scanner and needed to be able to scan both large items and negatives. Unfortunately, the scanner doesn't work properly. Negatives come out greenish yellow where there should be blue; light colored pictures come out with banding -- dark and light bands across the picture.

Summary: Let me just say this is the worst piece of technology I've played with in some time. I work in IT and purchased one of these because I love new technology and design ideas. I was replacing an older USB scanner, but one thing the 4670/4600 would not do, is DO NICE SCANS! Kind of amazing, eh?
Summary: I purchased this scanner for the flexability that the form factor offered, but I was frustrated by several aspects of the design, documentation and software. 1. The scanner has a long USB cable that pulls laterally from the USB prt on your PC.
Summary: This scanner is a work of art to look at. The software is also not too bad. The slide and negative scanning attachment is really cool. As for everything else, well.. Higher resolution scans are extremely slow.
Summary: Looks nice, but took me 2 hours with HP tech service to find out that it didn't like my USB 2.0 connector on the motherboard. Apparently this is a common problem and they sent me a usb 2.0 hub to use. Now that it's "working". It's unpredictable. Sometimes I'll scan multiple images without a hitch.
Summary: It is a great design,, very easy to use and takes up little desk space. BUT, scanning any photos with large black spaces (ie black backdrop) left a streaked look and the black was more of a grey. HP promptly sent me a replacement scanner.
