Make sure it has a power supply!

  • Summary: I would love to use this thing but it doesn't have a power supply. I know HP makes great devices. I use HP printers almost exclusively and my review is more about reading and understanding what it is you are buying. This one didn't come with a power supply so I'm trying to find one. I bought one and the ad reads like this: "AC Power Adapter Supply 4 HP ScanJet 5500cxi 5530 5550C". But you know what?

High quality scans - but has some problems

D. Harris "danielsan0", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this scanner pretty much just for the automatic feeder. Based on earlier reviews I read, i was half expecting to return it. I was amazed at the image quality it gave from 4X6 prints. I had a few jams, but they weren't too common. HP tells you not to scan a picture more than 5 times using the automatic photo feeder, and I can see why. If you look at glossy photos under the light after feeding them through once, you can see some damage.

pretty good but not perfect

  • Summary: Overall no problems but I did want to state that the photo feeder does leave a small roller mark on the picture (only visible when the light reflects off) and it takes a while to get the hang of the feeder (it tends to jam). Also there is some kind of automatic thing in the software which auto-crops the picture when using the roller...this tends to mess up and distort the picture size (so I have to preview twice). These are the only gripes I have..

Scannt gut - nur der Bildeinzug geht sehr schlecht

Mr-FANTASTIC, Amazon
18 December 2005
  • Summary: Der Scanner allein ist sehr gut. Die Auflösung der Scanns ist sehr gut und der Treiber ist WHQL-Zertifiziert wie bei allen HP-Produkten. Nur der automatische Bildeinzug ist nicht zu gebrauchen. Entweder die Bilder werden nicht eingezogen oder bleiben hängen. Nur sehr wenige Bider gehen einwandfrei. Zudem stimmt bei der Ausgabe die Reihenfolge nicht mehr. Da hätte ich von HP mehr erwartet.

  • Summary: Hallo liebe Ciao-Mitglieder!!!! Da mein Onkel in einer Computerfirma arbeitet, hat er natürlich meistens die aktuellsten Hardware Angebote vorliegen. Letzen Sommer hat er sich dann einen Brandaktuellen Scanner zugelegt, den es meines Wissens noch gar nicht offiziell auf dem Markt gab. Es war der Hewlett-Packard Scanjet 5500c. Nach ziemlich kurzer Zeit rief mein Onkel dann bei mir an, ob ich ihm günstig einen Scanner abkaufen wollte. Der Scanner kostet normalerweise 369€.
  • Pros: Schnelligkeit !
  • Cons: Preis !
