Speed is not it's strong suite

  • 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. There is also a design flaw with the lid, it has a strip going down the center that will show on your copies unless you use an...
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Very Very Slow

Lower your expecations of HP here. (sorry, HP)

John T., Newegg
7 March 2009
  • Summary: Due to the price, I lowered my expectations and bought the scanner. After getting the product, I have also lowered my expectations of HP. Their answer to slow performance is to use very low quality settings.
  • Pros: Cheap with ok usable quality. I bought this with pretty low expectations to begin with and strictly to scan old negatives and slides. The Newegg on sale plus promo for $70! I could not pass up the bargain. I installed the latest versions from the software from HP website. Also applied updates dur...
  • Cons: To be honest, I can't get it to work anywhere close to how it's advertised and it may be sent back on sheer principle. I get passable quality and no more. The drivers/software never uses much memory, disk, or CPU resources. I have not been able to scan a negative at any quality setting over 1200d...

Don't be wowed by the 96 bits

C. W., Newegg
29 August 2008
  • Summary: More cons: I had to return my HP G4010 because it had a continuous, high-pitched hum that never went away unless the scanner was powered off. This is *hopefully* a unique anomaly. The scanning software is lo-fi and not terribly easy to navigate.
  • Pros: Looks sharp from the outside. The white and gray/silver trim, the handy top button controls, and the functional, grippable and removable lid are all attractive pluses. Ultimately, however, they aid very little in getting your scanning jobs done. I like the feature that allows the scanner lamp to ...
  • Cons: The biggest problem for me is the unimpressive scanning quality. I am an artist and my primary reason for purchasing a scanner is to scan my small paintings. I purchased this HP to replace my Visioneer which I loved, but I broke. My old Visioneer beats this HP for color matching, hands down... Wh...

Poor software user interface design

J. Theberge, Amazon
6 April 2008
  • 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.

Win 7 ready does not mean what you may think

Jose, Amazon
6 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought this scanner directly from HP because of positive reviews on their site and the fact that it said it was ready for Windows 7. Unfortunately, this did not mean it actually came with the drivers for Win 7.

Amazon HP Scanner

  • 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.

Very Capable with Curious Software Design

Boogaloo, Amazon
14 January 2008
  • 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.

Initial experience was not good.

H. M. Davenport, Amazon
20 October 2007
  • 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.
