Summary: Overall very good scanner with sheet feeder and flat bed option. Use for documentation archiving for various departments. Double side scanning will takes two passes, handled by the scanner, so it is slower than single pass double side scanner like a Fujitsu.
Summary: I purchased one of these to replace my Scanjet 8290. WOW is my only comment. I love the unit and love the fact that it connects my network as well as functioning like a network scanner, digital sender. I LOVE IT and recommend to anyone needing a network unit.
Summary: I tried installing this out of the box on a XP Pro (32bit) and two Win7 (64 bit) computers. The installation failed on all three. I tried another (slightly later version 2010) software from the HP web site. Same problem! Spent 2 hrs on this.
Summary: Do not buy this if you want to use the document feeder with any regularity. I need to run around 200 pages a day through the feeder, it says that it will do 50 at a time. I have found that 30 is more like it, anything over that and it jams.
Summary: My company purchased this for a satellite office. The installation software is bugged to all hell. Had to install each application manually through command line (HP's recommended steps). I've never seen or used such a poorly designed and documented device.

Summary: If I had a dollar for every time this thing gave me a scan of the platen cover instead of the document in the feeder, it would have paid for itself by now. And it's not a cheap unit. Trying to get it to scan what you want in the way you want it is an amazing time sink.
Summary: Purchased it on the basis that it appeared to be a network scanner - that is, a scanner with adequate built in functionality to perform scans save as pdf or image files and send them to a file server or an email client...
Summary: Bought this because of the document feeder capability. We use it in a small office (10 work stations) and after six months it has caused nothing but frustration whenever the document feeder is used; paper misfeeds regularly; HP have replaced the feeder and a technician has visited but it remains...
Summary: Bought this to replace a worn out higher spec HP Scanner. Initial impressions was that it was much slower due to fact it passes each sheet twice through its scanning recepticle compared to the older versions one pass for duplex.
