Put your helmet on and run away fast

Henry P., Newegg
29 April 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this when a cheap plastic gear in my Scanjet 5370C wore out with no way to purchase replacement. I have no 3D printer, which could easily make a replacement gear. There is an image of a giant lollypop labeled "Sucker" floating over my head next to the image of a giant wood screw.
  • Pros: Produces 6-color images. Two lamps, one infrared (or ultraviolet?) for removing scratches. 4800x9600 resolution. Does lots of 35mm film and slides at once, so says the advertisement.
  • Cons: Violet-blue-grey vertical streaks washes white documents. Even with nothing on the scanner glass, the white paper press does not scan in white. Easy to fix in GIMP, increase contrast to +60%; not willing to experiment with color photos.

Decent hardware, but not easy to use

Gary C., Newegg
28 April 2014
  • Summary: Don't waste your time with the buggy and poor quality HP software. Get VueScan Pro and you will be happy. After much tinkering, I am able to scan negatives and get good results, although it takes a lot of time at a decent resolution. Also, I am observing what appears to be a shadow effect caused by the IR dust removal. You see the dust spec, then you see its shadow. Saw this at 4800 dpi, but not 2400.
  • Pros: When you actually get it to work, it makes decent scans
  • Cons: HP software VERY poor

Scanner is very good!

Daniel Braun, Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: The scanner does beautiful work! The only thing I can complain about is the TMA adapter. I can't figure out how they want you to use it.. I found it very difficult to use for scanning slides. There probably is a way to use it; so I will have to call HP to find out how to use it. In the mean time I am using a TMA from my last HP scanner for slides. If you don't have an old TMA adapter, it is a big deal if you want to scan slides.

Great product.

Scott Brookshire, Amazon

  • Summary: Our unit has been used in a healthcare office for the last two years or so. Easy to instal and has proven to be a real workhorse. Never a problem. A bit noisy but nothing to keep me from purchasing again.

4 February 2014
  • Summary: Easy and Super fast. The colors are the most accurate I've ever seen. My only complaint is that it is just as loud as any other scanner.

Not compatible with OS X 10.9 Mavericks

Michael Bargeron, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: Loved this scanner until the 10.9 Mac OS X upgrade came out. Now, I can only scan pictures and documents with the scanner. No negatives or slides because the driver and HP Scan software is not compatible with Mavericks.
