Summary: Great high resolution scanner that allows the user to scan 24 35mm negatives at one time, 6 or 8 medium format negatives depending on size: 6x6 or 6x9 as well as 1 4"x5" negative using the supplied templates. A very affordable option when the Epson 700 or 750M both excellent scanners themselves are not in the cards because of their price.
Excellent product, but not immune to wandering bugs.

Summary: I have used this scanner for many may years and found that it performed perfectly.It finally failed in a minor but annoying respect: a tiny bug had managed to attach itself to the underside of the glass plate,and there was no way to remove the plae or the bug. The scanner was discontinued and HP was of no help So I bought a used model from eBay for a $50 and was surprised to find that it came repacked in its original box with all associaed mateial in sealed bags,as if...
Summary: I am one of the people who never had a problem with this scanner. As a matter of fact, I am pretty happy with it. Is is fast, and pictures turn out beautifully. The only thing is, I lost my electrical cord. Does anyone know where to get a replacement?
Summary: First, you don't need to use HP's software. But I found it works perfectly for scanning with many options. One is picture recognition so you can scan multiple pictures at once. When your done, there is a picture viewer window that opens. I tend to close this and use the windows viewer, but that's just me. One feature I really like is the scan buttons on the front. You can quickly start the software by just hitting one of these buttons. I'm very happy with this scanner.
sorry been in hospital , But I love it thankyou so much

Summary: Comments about HP Scanjet 4850: This scanner has saved my life in trying to keep the kids entertained. My kids love to scan photos that they find in the newspaper or in a magazine. This scanner works very well and so easy to operate that I don’t even have to help them create their masterpieces. They seem to do very well on their own which is a plus for any busy mother! It is a very fast machine so there is no downtime waiting for stuff to scan.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Widely Compatible
Summary: Comments about HP Scanjet 4850: If you are a picture fanatic like me then you are going to want this scanner! Its scans so well you would think you are looking at the original! You can also scan all of your slides and negatives and that is a HUGE + for me! I am always doing something with pictures so I have found that this scanner is a godsend in my life! The only thing I wish it had was a year warranty instead of the 90 day.
