Summary: I purchased this refurbished, used several times. Now all I get is a black image. Researched online and tried all remedies but still doesn't work. Disappointed obviously. It worked great for a while.
Summary: The software included with the box is of year 2007 while the scanner was purchased in August 2011. It is better to download the most recent software from the HP web site. According to the site specs, it will work on Windows XP as well as with Windows 7 64. I still have to try on Windows 7.
Summary: Comments about HP Scanjet G4010 Photo Flatbed Scanner: This scanner is one of the slowest scanners I have ever seen or used. It takes entirely to long to scan documents.

Pros: Accurate Color, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution

Summary: I ordered the scanner and planned to use it on an older computer with Windows 2000 SP4. It arrived promptly; unfortunately it was defective (made a clacking noise and the scanning light wouldn't move). Sent it back after a phone call and several emails back and forth to Amazon.
Summary: Project - convert 800+ family slides into digital. After giving 100 to a photo lab ($70!!-ouch!), I accidentally discovered today's flatbed scanner 35mm slide features (and film strips) and gave it a try with this HP. I'm well satisfied with the result.
Summary: i have been experiencing problems copying photographic slides, which was the root cause for the initial purchase. Whereas it has sometimes copied multiple slides sensibly, it more often than not copies them as a "strip" which then requires significant intervention, Hardly what i wanted.
Summary: It's a scanner. Doesn't seem any quicker than things half it's size. Bought primarily for slides on a separate computer in a different room. It's OK, not tried it for photos, text, etc, seems to be nowhere to name files before scanning, I might be wrong there.
