Nothing but trouble

dennisqdw, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: I use windows XP and although unlike others this scanner does a fine job as to image quality, that's only the case when it works. I've had to unload and reload the software for this so many times I've lost count.

Not a professional scanner

S. Barry "multimedia professional", Amazon
15 April 2005
  • Summary: Using this scanner is a frustrating experience. The current software from HP's site does not work well with Mac OS X. There is an option to descreen, but it doesn't do anything. The descreening option is either on or off, there are no parameters to set.

do not buy an HP scanner

B. Culver, Amazon
13 December 2004
  • Summary: I have windows xp. I installed the software, connected this scanner via USB 2.0, and have had nothing but misery since. For example, while I am writing this I am waiting the 5 minutes it takes to do a negative scan job using the HP software. Everything about this scanner is slow.

Mac OSX? Stay clear of this scanner

Round About, Amazon
12 July 2004
  • Summary: I use a scanner daily in my work as a college teacher, as I put most of my teaching materials online. I was impressed with the specs of this scanner, revews were positive, and was happy for about two weeks. Then I bought a new Mac G5, OS 10.3 Panther.

Rubbish

M. Preece "m-r-p", Amazon
12 July 2004
  • Summary: I've had this scanner for over 3 years and I've never got a decent scan out of it. I've had to play around in Photoshop to make anything usable, but detail in never there. Everytime I scan I have to unplug it from the mains then replug it to restart it so that the software can find it.
