Summary: THE INFO AVAILABLE FOR THE USER IS NOT CURRENT FOR WINDOWS 7. WHEN TRYING TO GET HP SUPPORT YOU WIND UP WITH SOMEONE FROM INDIA THAT IS NOT FAMILIAR WITH THESE UNITS. LEAVES YOU UP TO TRIAL AND ERROR TO FIND OUT WHY THE FEATURES ARE NOT WORKING.
Excerpt: Use for general document/picture scanning. So far only used it for documents. Runs great on Linux Mint Debian OS out of the box with GIMP, etc. Very fast compared to my old UMAX. One quirk about it seems that the background is slightly dark even without a document.

Summary: This HP Scanjet G4050 offers six-color scanning for excellent scan color and does a good job on both prints and film, including mounted slides. I would recommend however if scanning negatives or prints that you first check this version by Epson here: http://amzn.to/1FW8ISf PROS: + Six-color scanning...
Summary: Software doesn't load into my HP computer. I'm seeking help. Had two techs work over an hour each and couldn't load the software. HP said it was out of warranty three days after I received it and are still deciding whether or not to talk to me about it.
Summary: I'm a loyal HP fan and have been for many years. However, this scanner is a piece of junk. I rarely use it, because I have a sheet fed scanner for most of my scanning. But, every once in awhile I need a flatbed for something.
