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.

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 scanner Odessey

depotwmn1, Ebay
6 September 2010
  • Summary: I thought the scanner looked great, but I never got it. Must have been lost in the mail somewhere. The seller was not very helpful and slow to answer, and then would not answer when asked for a refund over a month after the purchase and I had still not received it.

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.

Didn't even work for an hour

Jessica Ferguson "threelittlebirds", Amazon
24 April 2005
  • Summary: I bought the HP Scanjet 4670 based on research on Amazon.com and Consumer Reports where the item came highly recommended as a best buy. After over an hour installing everything, it took several "clicks" to open any of the 5 desktop icons automatically loaded - none of which make it clear which is...

Great design, terrible execution - avoid at all costs

N. Strum "Graphic Designer", Amazon
2 March 2005
  • Summary: If I could give this zero stars, I would. I bought a 4670 in December, and immediately noticed the banding/striping problem. Unfortunately, I hadn't yet seen reviews mentioning it, so I assumed it was just my scanner.

Banding makes scanner WORTHLESS

purplebrain, Amazon
22 February 2005
  • Summary: I tried everything. Upgrading software, drivers, RAM, PCI cards. I gave this thing more than a chance to perform. But every single scan has horrible bands through it. Large alternating light and dark stripes. This scanner is utterly worthless.

More Bands Than A Rock Concert...

No HP For Me, Amazon
13 February 2005
  • Summary: What can I say? - apart from adding my own voice to the overwhelming chorus of complaint about this scanner? I didn't intend to buy it, I went shopping for a 'normal' scanner - but I'm a styley sort of guy, and when I saw this techno-icon winking at me from the shelves of PC World I just *had* to...

Dreadful: Crashed on both PC & Mac

F. Lovelett, Amazon
12 February 2005
  • Summary: I run a small imaging workgroup. This scanner seemed worth a try for scanning odd formats: textiles & orginial art. This is about the 20th scanner that I have installed over the years--the only one that would not function on either platform. Clever design: too bad that the hardware is so buggy.

WORST EVER - A ZERO RATING

Scott T. Varga, Amazon
8 January 2005
  • Summary: Scanjet 4670 - Don't listen to anyone who says this scanner is worth using at all. What is the purpose of having a scanner that scans alternating light and dark bands through the image.
