Summary: I bought the scanner because I have a big stack of web pages from paying bills online. I sorted the papers but haven't yet scanned them all. I have scanned a few. The scanner came without a CD or any software but I was able to download it from HP. I run Windows 7 on the machine it is connected to. I have been able to scan a few things, both in the glass and through the feedfer. In the feeder I can't give it a stack of papers and wait for it to go through them.
Excerpt: My goal was to digitize all my home office records (bank statements, insurance policies, charge card receipts, etc). After owning this scanner for ten days, I have five file drawers of paper ready for the shredder. Set up would have gone smoothly but the USB 2.0 cable was defective; finally discovered that myself and then started scanning; paper handling is remarkable including two-sided scanning. It will handle a stack of 50 pages without a hiccup.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Paper Handling, Good Resolution
Summary: At first I was having difficulty getting the scanner to read documents from the automatic sheet feeder. However, after picking the correct driver software interface, the scanner works like a charm. It is still to early to determine if this scanner will serve my every need. But, at this point in time I believe it was a wise investment and the footprint it takes up on my desk is perfect.
Excerpt: The scanner is being used to train students with autism to use technology. The scanner allows us to give them experience with not only scanning documents but also sd cards and a host of other items.
Summary: Our office bought this scanner back in Spring of 2008, and we have scanned over 150,000 documents on it, and now, five years later, it's getting tired. However, we are going to purchase the exact same make and model to replace it, and it will probably last another 5 years and 150,000 documents. We are a law office, and are constantly using it. It's not as fast as I would like, but the durability outweighs the speed.

Summary: There are some scathing reviews here - I just know that it works for scanning. A great scanner , always reliable, the software is intuitive and easy to use. I have never had an issue with this product, HP is not known for great tech support as a company, but software and help can be readily found online and reading forums.
