Summary: Can't expect too much from high level technology from over 10 years ago. I needed a multipage scanner though for court documents and this worked in a pinch. I did not realize that most fairly cheap printers come with a MP scanner as well, if I had I probably would have paid the extra 20 bucks and...
Summary: As far price for quality goes, it is hard to beat this scanner. It works quickly and the resolution is great. It may not come with any fancy software to change the scans, but I found it was not needed - Paint works well.
Summary: This is a review of the VENDOR, not the scanner. I ordered HP ScanJet 8250 Document Scanner through Amazon; vendor is TLMonitors. Item was advertised as "Very little use, still in original box." Vendor asserted on their invoice that "drivers on a disc" were included; in fact, they were not included.
Summary: I bought this unit refurbished for $65 to scan all my important documents from my file cabinet. I downloaded the driver software from the HP website. After some initial glitches, I read the manual and figured out how to set the various options I needed.
