Summary: Even though the specs on this scanner sound pretty good, for some reason the scans come out looking like spit. Absolutely horrible. The only reason I gave 2 stars is b/c the price was pretty low on it.
Summary: This is the 5th HP scanner or all in one device that I have had. I still have the others or they were working when I gave them away. The G3110 is terrible. It is hard to install. Even with the updated software I could not get it to install to one computer. It would work with another one so possibly in the first case the problem lies with the computer. However this scanner is very slow. The software is awkard to use. My HP scanjet 5470 is much easier to use and faster.
Excerpt: The scanner was to be used to image checks and documents for my homeowners association of 134 homes. It was too slow for the volume of scanneing that I would be doing. It also did not work in Photoshop, the twain dirver froze the application. I had to return the scanner. On the plus side B&H was very friendly & efficient in the return process.
Pros: If you have a ton of pictures that you need to scan, this unit will work well for you. It's very fast and produces great looking pictures.
Cons: This unit will also scan negatives and slides. If this is what you want to do, I would suggest looking for something else. I've gone through 2 different units within 2 weeks. After the scanner previews what it's scanning, everything is black, even though the back light is on. I'm returning the second one and getting my money back.
Summary: This scanner has only a 90-day warranty. So does the 4010. I wouldn't even consider them. The only HP home scanner with a 1-year warranty is the 4050. The Canon scanners also have a 1-year warranty, and I'm leaning toward the 5600.
Summary: Must represent value for money; does an all-round/general job ADEQUATELY; if you're attentive to detail and have a demanding application you want it to meet then TALK to users with your own shortlist - don't rely on a review to make a decision but merely accept it as INFLUENTIAL; do look at the problem pages to see what difficulties come up; this scanner's bundled software I've found is very slow to start up (but this might in part be my o/s - Win7) I've seen glaciers...
Summary: I purchased the HP Scanjet G3110 specifically to digitise slides and 35 mm negatives because the description indicated a high quality output. Having tried all the variables for scanning all the results from a range of slides and negatives had the same problem, a fuzzy "soft focus" effect, none were sharp (the originals are very clear). This is not what the label says so I will return the scanner to Amazon for a refund. I have not tried scanning documents etc.
Excerpt: Не советую. В нашем мире высоких технологий, все должно лететь от одного усилия мысли, а тут пока настроишь аппарат, пока им воспользуешься - времени пройдет кучу. Раньше мечтал все старые снимки отсканировать. Данное устройство было куплено в основном для этих целей. Но потратив пол часа на 7 фотографий и оценив сколько недель работы предстоит впереди - бросил данное занятие. Сейчас использую только для копирования документов.
Pros: Если понимаешь в технике - то добиться чего-либо можно от этого устройства, но времени потратишь куча. Пожалуй, основное качество - это качественный результат изображения.
Cons: Большой, громоздкий, неудобный, тормознутый. Для пользования нужно использовать только свою прогу, скорость сканирования ужасно долгое при любой операции, шляпа короче.
