Beware: Scanner will not work with Window 7 at this time

Summary: I have had this scanner over a month and it works well with Window XP. However, the comptuter that I want to run it on has the new Windows 7 software. HP website say's that they have a driver in the works that will allow it to work with Windows 7 but they are taking their time making it available. I am going to give them another week and if no driver, I am going to take it back to Staples.
Summary: While both have the excellent HP software that lets you make color, cropping, light/dark, sharpness adjustments before AND after scanning, the G4010 requires that you hold the lid open with one hand and insert/remove the slides in the slot in the lid with the other! The slot is wide enough for the plastic negatives insert and too wide for slides so they tend to overlap each other. It can be difficult to get them to stay straight.
Summary: This scanner has only a 90-day warranty. So does the 3110. 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: Warning! This comes with virtually no documentation. There is a thick booklet, but it's in about twenty languages with only about 5 pages devoted to any one and most of that information is useless. You are left pretty much to your own devices. There is on-screen help of a sort, but it's so chopped and diced that it's hard to get an overview of just how to start anything.
Summary: Good scanner...but software to eliminate red eye or crop pictures didn't work with XP...and is not yet avail for Vista. Very disappointing 40+ telephone experience with HP and about 8hours with Microsoft.
Summary: The scanner looks nice, in a faux ipod sort of way. It does actually scan documents and does so quite quickly. However, you are always left with two lines of light which make two lines of text on a page very faint. I have seen this happen before with scanners, but never as consistently as this. If you scan white paper, maybe look elsewhere.
Summary: Nej, det här var ingen höjdare. Köpte den för att scanna in diabilder, men den funktionen är bristfällig och resultatet är opålitligt. Ibland missar till och med programvaran att klippa bilderna på rätt ställe och programmet som ska förbättra fotona verkar göra tvärtom. Jag funderar faktiskt på om något var trasigt, för det var inget som funkade som det skulle. Jag har endast använt denna för scanning av diabilder så jag kan bara uttrycka mig kring den funktionen.
