5300C Scanner

  • Excerpt: The 5300C scanner from HP has given reliable use for three years. USB connection is a plus for this older scanner. I started with Windows 98 and I am now using with Windows XP home edition. It works well with XP. HP has the drivers on it's web page to direct the user to the proper program. The color (1200 dpi resolution) is compatible with current scanners. The ability to remove the cover and place a slide adaptor is a great addition.
  • Pros: Four button instant use, color scanning,   . pdf files, add - on pages for e - mail, slide compatible
  • Cons: takes up some space, older technology .

  • Excerpt: it was great when my dad first bought this thing it was pretty fast compared to my aunt's and it always worked. then when we got our new computer with windows xp the problems started. it worked pretty good without installing the hp drivers but we wanted the program that sends the picture to whatever applivation you want. once you install the drivers it detects something plugged in to the usb port then it says scanner not connected in the system tray.
  • Pros: good for win98, scanning isn't too slow, lid is removable
  • Cons: made by HP, newer scanners might be faster, bad drivers, bad support, sometimes the programs freeze, adobe photo delux sux, and it hurts ur eyes when u try to scan ur face lol

  • Excerpt: I have long been a member of the HP fold, and I love evangelizing for their products on my job. My ardor for this company can be attributed to one thing - their products work. And when I say work, I mean, they work all the time. I know this for a fact, because I worked for a printing company for 4.5 years, and I used a HP scanner on that job the whole time I worked there. I can't remember now the model number I used then, but that's not important.

  • Summary: Oui, je me confesse, mes avis sur l’informatique sont plutôt rares. Et pourtant, l’ordinateur, ses fonctions, ses capacités, ses périphériques, tout ça me passionne ! Alors bon, aujourd’hui je vais me forcer un peu à vous parler de cette passion ! Nan, plus sérieusement, aujourd’hui l’ordinateur devient un véritable outil de travail, que ce soit pour moi ou pour ma famille, internet offre de très grandes possibilités pour aller plus loin et plus facilement.
  • Pros: fidèle (sauf caractères), peu encombrant, bonne qualité, rapport qualité/prix, sérieux d'HP, port USB, touches rapides, rapide tout court d'ailleurs .
  • Cons: moche, un peu vieux à l'heure qu'il est, pb avec les caractères, certaines fonctions intuiles .
