Summary: I have thousands and thousands of family pictures and letters to sort through and scan in, and my old scanner just wasn't up to the task. I've been looking around for a faster scanner and this one is defeinitely it. My old scanner took 80 seconds to scan a color image at 300 dpi.
Summary: I previously left a warning that this scanner was incompatible with Mac OS X Panther (10.3.x). However, HP has just released a driver for this scanner, and all compatibilty issues seem to be resolved.
This has worked very well for me for many years ...

Summary: This has worked very well for me for many years. I've used it with Window XP, Windows Vista (64-bit), and Windows 7 (64-bit) and i have never had a problem with it. I can't find any USB 3.0 Flatbed Legal-Sized scanners so i expect to keep this for many more years.
