Good black-and-white document scanner that doesn't take up much desk space.
30 July 2014
Summary: This is a good black and white document scanner. It doesn't take up much desk space. It automatically goes into "sleep" mode after not being used for a little while, which helps conserve energy. We quickly scanned many important documents and then saved them to our cloud account (so that they could be retrieved remotely). Really like this scanner. It is not meant for scanning photos.
Summary: I've been enjoying a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M since late 2009, and I have yet to find a pass-through scanner that can out-perform that nearly five-year-old piece of hardware. This HP scanner is a reasonably nice piece of hardware, with a small footprint and a quality feel, but the folks at HP didn't put a lot of thought into their Mac implementation, relying heavily on the built-in OSX application Image Capture to handle the software side of things.
A great Space-saving idea that still scans and functions well !

Summary: This Scanner is a Great way to keep a lightly used (for us) piece of office equipment from cluttering desk space. We also use a table with a Fax machine, Printer (b/w only) and a Color Inkjet Printer. Occasionally we need to scan documents, brochures, invoices etc, so there was a need for a quality scanner, but not much room. This scanner fits the bill wonderfully, it operates quickly and effectively, quietly and shuts itself off.
If you are using a Mac, you need to know how to use Image Capture and Preview...

Summary: After having used a similar **Fujitsu scanner** at my office, I was excited to try out an HP-branded sheet fed scanner at home after having excellent experience with their commercial-grade imaging products in the past. Overall, I’m mostly satisfied with the device, but there are some small weaknesses, mostly on the software side.
Summary: I continue to work with an old HP PhotoSmart printer, an even older DeskJet laser printer, and an HP 1010 fax machine (a fax machine! I know.) All of these keep plugging away, working perfectly, so I’ve resisted the urge to invest in an all-in-one printer/scanner/fax. Now that I have the Scan Jet, it will be even easier to resist. The Scan Jet has a very small footprint, about 4 x 11 inches, making it easy to find a little spot for it in my crowded home office.
Summary: We love this scanner. Its the fastest one we've had. Very good feed that never jams or pulls more than one sheet. We did have difficulty loading the drivers, but no problems since then. Small profile that doesn't take up much room. Very light, almost to the point of flimsy, but its been durable so far. We will probably by a second one for the office.
Only scans in black and white, not impressed with quality of output

Summary: Forget about scanning receipts, that won't work, instant paper jam unless you use a document protector. The best thing is go online to HP's website and read over the online user manual because the documentation that comes with the scanner is next to useless. Apparently it only scans in gray-scale (black and white), which is a bit of a disappointment as the software offered color scanning as a choice, my inexpensive 3-in-1 HP Printer can scan in color, and it cost less...
Summary: I had the Neat system prior to getting this. It has been a difficult adjustment for me. I like the Neat software better. This scanner is a better quality. It is very clear and fast. It suits my needs just fine.
Mac support lacking, but Windows experience is pretty good.

Summary: Length:: 4:52 Mins If you're a Mac user I'll save you a lot of time - this scanner is not for you. HP did the absolute minimum from the software side to make this device compatible, but it largely just involves bolting it onto the Mac's built in image capture application. It works, but you lose many of the features Windows users enjoy including blank page detection and two of the three included software packages. On Windows the scanner is pretty capable.
