Summary: If you need a scanner only (this is not a printer) that can do slides, + has adjustable resolution for any other kind of scanning (photos, documents), this is incredible! You can choose whatever file extension you want to save your scan (including .pdf).
Summary: Despite the cons, it does a great job scanning.
Pros: Scans very clear and scales up or down with ease. Merges multiple scans to one PDF quickly.
Cons: The slide holder is part of the lid. If you scan normal copier paper, the slide holder will bleed thru. Sometimes you have to place another sheet behind the paper you want to scan. The slide holder shows up on the "detected" scan area. You always have to resize.
Warning: The paper handler shown does not come with this item.

Pros: Accurate Color, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Summary: Even at NewEgg's full price, this is a tremendous value. At $80 for the recertified unit, it's an absolute STEAL!
Pros: Very quiet, reasonably fast, extremely high-quality scans. The built-in slide scanner is a nice bonus, too.
Cons: It would be nice to have a plain cover to hide the slide slot when not using it. I've had it show through a couple of scans of thin media and have taken to covering small items with a sheet of card stock to compensate.
Excerpt: A scanner for me is not really as important except if you want to upload a document faster. The only thing I know before that needs to be scan are merely documents. But right now, even pictures can be scanned. The old scanner can deliver the worst resolution to …
Summary: Comments about HP Scanjet G4010 Photo Flatbed Scanner: Cumbersome setup. Fills the registry with endless entries. Too many steps to perform a scan. After a short period it started to pop up messages claiming to install software.
