Summary: The 5370c flatbed scanner has been an integral part of my computer system for years. When it "failed to proceed" after many years of use, I was lucky enough to find a used one on ebay which has proved to be in excellent condition and works as intended. The film and negative scan feature is what drew me to this unit initially and I an happy to have one now. This is only one of a few scanners that can process slides, filmstrips and negatives.
Excerpt: Whats In The Box In the large box you get manuals, which are easy to use along with all the cables and software you need. Obviously there is a scanner in there and there is also a little box type thing which is used for scanning negatives, this is a nice addition to the package. Connectivity The scanner can be connected to your computer either by a USB cable or a parrel port, all cables are included.
Excerpt: I bought this scanner over a year ago at PC world and it was for £99.99 This included the scanner and also the housing unit for negatives. This seemed a very good deal and I don’t normally buy this sort of thing on impulse and without looking on the internet to see if I could find it any cheaper elsewhere as I don’t normally trust PC world prices, for a change though I was proved wrong.( Just don’t tell my wife.
Excerpt: I might be bulky – but I have lots of uses. I am a flatbed – but in modern terms I must be bordering on obese – or at least overweight. I can photocopy – that saves quite a lot on those things that need to be sent off. I can copy photos (if you use prints, slides or negatives rather than digital ones) – for those processed before you could get put on disk at developing or for printing copies of slides or just to save the cost.
Pros: Easy to set up and use for photocopying, picture digitalisation and OCR
Cons: I’m bordering on obese and still can’t work out how to use the fax facility .
Excerpt: I was looking for a new top of the range scanner, to go along with my Hp P1000 photo smart printer, so I needed one at a good price, but which had great quality scanning, and I found it. Everyone knows that Hp can be a bit pricey, but for around £130, this has to be worth it. It has a max resolution of 2400 x 1200 dpi (dots per inch), and this is ideal for enlarging pics and still keeping the quality in the picture.
Excerpt: Sorry This has gone under incorrect heading. I am not talking about Hewlett Packard as stated but RELISYS ECLIPSE scanner - so apologies to any whose time has been wasted. This is the opinion of an absolute novice to the world of scanners. I am now the proud owner of a Pentium 3 computer. As part of the deal I also purchased a scanner. The original scanner provided was not compatible with the computer and unfortunately had to be changed.
Pros: Seems to have plenty of features and special effects
Excerpt: HP 5300C SCANNER ~ ~ The HP 5300 Scanner gives you all the added benefits of a top of the range scanner, but at a fairly affordable price, at least for a HP. Quire a few changes and extra features are available that weren’t on the 5200, but if you think you can live without them, then you’ll most likely be able to drive a good bargain on an old 5200 model. There are a fair few of them still knocking around in stockrooms.
Excerpt: There are a vast array of A4 flad bed scanners on the market today. Even some of the basic ones from 600 dpi offer superb results. I decided to look for one in the 600dpi+ range that not only scans photos and objects but also allows you to scan in negatives (very useful for old photos etc) The HP products are renounced for reliabilty, quality and reproducibilty and are not always cheap.
Performant mais trop volumineux ( HP Scanjet 5370C )

Excerpt: Le HP sccanjet 5370 est un excellent scanner destiné a numériser aussi bien les photos que les diapos et négatifs grâce à la présence d'un dos rétro-éclairé. La qualité de numérisation est impeccable et le scanner est très rapide (a condition toute fois de disposer d'une configuration relativement puissante).
