HP does it again

E. D. Avila, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my second hp scanner. The first one worked fine, but was not compatible when I went to XP. Had to buy another scanner. The second one is working well, but is not compatible with Windows 7. They try to give you a small discount on a new scanner. Nice way to make more money. My old Epson Stylus color 777 printer will work with Win 7. It's at least 12 years old. No more HP products for me.

Functional but glitchy.

  • Summary: I've been using this scanner for a few years and it has been reasonably dependable. I needed a scanner with a large bed in order to scan book covers and other 3D items. It has worked well for my purposes though it has always had a persistent high pitched squeal whenever it is turned on. In addition, heavier items cause it to rattle a bit (any book over 3 lbs). It's been an OK machine despite its quirks.

Sloooooooooow scanner

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: If you are using this to scan images to put on a webpage or to send via email the scanner works great. The default dpi is 200 and when you increase the dpi to create images you can print it slows way down. I would not recommend this scanner if you are looking to print the photos you have scanned.

HP Scanjet 4850 Photo Scanner ???

Noel J. West Jr. "NJW", Amazon
29 June 2006
  • Summary: As a scanner it's OK, but I have not resolved several problems with my system software since I install it. I get file corrupted when I try use a file that has worked prior and get the same for new video files. Everytime I boot I get a serious system error that XP wants to report to Microsoft and other weirdness.

Guter Scanner mit Problemen bei der Software

  • Summary: Der Scanner wurde mir vor ca. 3 Wochen ausgeliefert, mit einer Software, die nur die Sprachen Englisch, Niederländisch und Französisch hatte. Eine deutsche Version war nicht zu bekommen. Für "Windows 7" funktioniert die Software überhaupt nicht. Nach Auskunft von HP soll es aber in "Kürze ?" eine passende zum Downloaden geben. Solange dies nicht der Fall ist, kann ich den Scanner nur eingeschränkt betreiben. Daher mein Urteil abwartend.

Buen escaner, pero lento y con software pesado

verraco, Ciao
16 July 2006
  • Summary: Tengo una buena colección de fotos y negativos que quiero escanear. También tengo de mis padres y abuelos fotos antiguas que quiero que pasen digitalizadas a toda mi familia. Compré este escaner por su calidad, que me ha quedado clara, pero su lentitud me ha desesperado. El controlador de software incluye los programas que ocupan 450 megas en el ordenador, y a la hora de cargar el principal de escaneo me consume mucha memoria y no me permite escanear a 3600 ppp con 500...
  • Pros: Calidad en las fotografias
  • Cons: Lentitud, tamaño excesivo de los programas, ralentización del sistema
