Summary: I work on the road and always have something to scan. I owned a handheld bar scanner but it is useless for large scans. This scanner is ideal for light travel and the software makes it easy as pie to use. A must have for those who travel for business like I do.
Summary: Purchased this scanner two weeks ago. It comes with no software to install. Unit installed just fine on my first desk top computer. When I tried to use it on my laptop the software does not allow you to scan to a PDF. Only allows Jpg, Tiff and other formats. Scanner does not allow you to scan Multi page document. If you have adobe you can scan to a PDF, but not multi page documents.
Summary: It works great, and even better in color option. It's a little slow and noisy. I wish it would feed 2 pcs of paper continuously without mouse keying scan but for a small desktop scanner it's nice
Summary: Had two scanners previous to this HP (they were not HP) Each one worked on a different computer - sometimes! Frustrated I decided to try once more. HP -- Easy to set up, Comes in a neat travel case, easy to use, works every time!
Summary: I have had this scanner for over 2 years with no product issues. As a small contractor, I work out of my truck all the time as a mobile office, so space is limited. I keep it along with my netbook, portable printer, mobile internet, product literature, etc.... under the back seat of my truck. I am a very active person, camping, fishing, 4-wheeling, hunting, etc... and it fits my life with my wife, kids, dogs and, of course, work.
Summary: I work in environmental industry and generate waste profiles in the field on a frequent basis. We are required to scan document into system to initiate approval process. I had to wait until I was in office to use scanner which delayed the process. Now I can instantly scan in the field! This scanner has been very reliable and produces clear images. It has a very convenient USB feature where image is scanned directly into computer instead of onto an SD card.
