Suppose to be NEW Yet Out of Warranty

Sign Man "Sign Man", Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: I was registering all my HP devices when I discover some surprising information. I had brought a new HP scanjet 8300 in June 2009. The HP site I was registering the devices indicated the warranty for the scanner had expired in November 2008, 6 months before I bought it. I know many years have passed but I feel I have been lied to and cheated. The scanner has worked fine all this time but I feel like I have been taken. Luckily I have not had to call HP for the device.

The Windows 7 driver sucks!

  • Summary: HP just recently came out with driver version 13.0 for Windows 7 and it is lacking. There is only one descreen feature in the driver thus it will not let you descreen at 145 lpi for artwork or old postcards, etc. Fortunately, I have other systems still running XP (and will continue to run XP) so I can still scan with my UMAX scanner and get good results.

  • Excerpt: The HP ScanJet 8300 is a Professional Image Scanner from HP's Scan jet series. This is one of the top end Scanners HP manufacture and is ideal for the business domain. There is also an 8300gp model of this scanner which is a Graphic Arts scanner and has a monitor color-meter calibrator as a added feature ideal for graphic designers. Now about the HP ScanJet 8300, the scanner has an OR (Optical Resolution) of 4800x4800dpi and will scan high dynamic range in 48bit colour.
  • Pros: Very Good Quality, Excellent SilverFast Software
  • Cons: Abit Large, Dust Removal Software Not Good
