No driver for Mac OS X, none expected

Swift, Andrew, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • Summary: The scanner might be fine for Windows users, but there is no driver for Apple OS X. This includes Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion. The HP drivers only worked with the old Power PC operating system, and since the scanner was discontinued in 2005, HP has no plans to release an updated driver. Even third-party drives depend on the HP kernel, so there aren't any.

Warning: Won't work for MacOS Lion

Richard Johnson, Amazon
8 September 2011
  • Summary: Just a warning to those with Macintosh systems. HP refuses to update their driver for this scanner to work under MacOS Lion, so this hardware becomes trash if you upgrade to the latest MacOS, or even buy a new Mac computer. HP seems to be dropping the ball on a lot things like this these days, which is too bad because they used to make some good stuff. I really like my 4670 scanner but it's now a doorstop!

Plenty problems

P. Steiner, Amazon
28 April 2006
  • Summary: I'm now on my third scanner of this type. The first worked for ca. 1 week until it went dead in the middle of a scan. I returned it to the shop and soon recieved a new one. This lasted for a month - and the same thing happened again. Well, today I recieved my third scanner, which worked fine - for 15 minutes!! Three different scanners, same problem. The design and consept is great - but that does not help at all. If i could rate this with 0 stars I would.
