Summary: This is an absolutely GREAT scanner for the cost. Although an older model, the scanner works fully thru Vista. Origionally sold for about $1200-1400 when first introduced so any price under a couple hundred is a bargain. Document feeder works well and you could not want more scanning options. I use to scan, print and fax. I don't know how anyone could rate this as "an OK scanner" as is so much more.
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. If you purchase this scanner within the next couple months (before the newer models with the driver included reach the outlets), you may find that you need to download the driver from [...] When I downloaded the driver, my computer mistook it as an Adobe Go Live file.
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. Try giving Silverfast a spin for alternative scanner drivers/software (I use hp and Silverfast).
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. This scanner takes maybe 8 seconds to do the same, and the quality is better.

Summary: Ein wunderbarer Scanner mit einer brillanten Farbentreue, der zwar etwas Geduld beim Scannen erfordert, aber mit der Brillanz und der Aussagekraft des Ergebnisses Toppt. Da bleiben keine Wünsche offen. Der Scanjet8200 ist mit dem Minimaltreiber von der HP Seite und dem Softwarepaket des Scanners Scanjet8270, das anschließend installiert werden muss, mit Windows 7 64 Bit excellent betreibbar !!!
Summary: Turbo Geschwindigkeit ! Sehr kurze Aufwärmzeit, unglaublich schnelle Vorschau in nur 2 Sekunden, sensationell schneller Scan in nur 4 Sekunden pro Seite ! Excellente Software mit hervorragender Bildoptimierung und Texterkennung.
