Summary: I purchased this unit a couple of years ago, because I did not want an all-in-one type printer. As a scanner it's more versatile, and can be used just about anywhere. For me, it solved a lot of problems. I like it very much.
Summary: I don't know why these mooks are giving this scanner one star. At worst its average. I work at a print shop I do graphic design and art. This thing is amazing. Granted the software sucks for new macs, but it is so versatile. For the folks complaining about depth raise the contrast to 1 or 2.
Summary: I bought my ScanJet 4670 new several years ago, and it's been nothing but rock-solid ever since. I've scanned tons of text, lots of color photos, portfolio clips and more. It's true, it isn't the fastest scanner at very high resolutions.
Summary: This scanner took me a while to find but, it was worth the searching for. It has a bunch of features that are unique to it. I love that it comes with the negative/slide adapter and that it is small and light weight. If HP could make one wireless, wow!!!
Summary: I have had this for several years and find it very useful. The slide/negative attachment works well (my mother is in the process of scanning boxes and boxes of old slides), and the transparent scanner that can be lifted off the stand and moved to wherever you need it is very handy for scanning parts...
Summary: I just love this scanner. Not only does it work well for documents as well as slides and negatives, it has a very small footprint on the desk and looks so Slick! I read the other reviews about stripes/banding on scans.
Summary: I've had this model for over a year, and hasn't failed once. It looks great on an office desk, it doesn't take up much space, and offers a lot of flexibility when scanning. It's much more convenient to scan book pages with this one.
Summary: I work in the editorial department of a magazine. I constantly scan text, as well as photos. This little scanner has held up tremendously. I have never had a problem with it -- since day one --- and I've had it about a year (when they first came available).
