Summary: I have plenty of scanners, but Windows 7 & 8 systems made them obsolete because they do not have updated drivers for newer Windows. A scanner is a scanner, only if the operating system allows it.
Summary: I wanted an inexpensive scanner to create PDF Files. this one does the job. It worked just fine with Windows Vista but I had to download a driver to get it to work with Windows 7. It worked the first time I used it and then after that I had to reinstall the driver again to get it to work again.

Summary: I bought this scanner to replace my 10+ year old Epson 3170 hoping that the quality, image correction and speed of the new HP would make my 1000+ picture scanning project go more smoothly. I didn't see any difference in the image quality at 600 dpi.
Summary: First the good news: The device does a good job of scanning, considering its price, and it scans negatives. Unlike most other scanners (which use LCDs) it has reasonable depth of field. That was enough for 3 stars. Now the problems: 1.
Summary: The G3110 scanner software is reasonably easy to install. It is also reasonably easy to control the file size of the scan. It does not automatically defalt to a multi-megabite file size. Low resolution scanning of pictures shows a good quality result.
Summary: This scanner is a bit disappointing. It does the text scans well, photos in good definition. It is, however, slow. It takes several seconds to warm up between each page. I may be doing something wrong, but the scanning of slides produced unacceptable results.
Summary: I purchased this for around $100. It is a decent scanner for the price but has some issues: 1. It is true that the software is VERY DIFFICULT to use (especially if you have never used HP Scanning Software).
