HP ScanJet 5200C USB Color Scanner

 

SUMMARY. I finally found a scanner that I would consider purchasing to replace my trusty HP-4P: this one. That is, if the 4P were to break beyond economical repair. Hardware quality is a major consideration when I buy any computer product. This scanner...

HP Lemon

 

My first scanner was an HP 5200 C. I bought it a couple years ago so that I could scan photos and documents onto my computer. The HP 5200 C was $300 dollars at the time, and several scanners were only $150 or less, but I wanted to spend the money and ...

This was my first scanner and I relied on HP reputation. I am retired from IBM (engineer) and was familiar with HP test equipment. The scanner initially installed (USB)and operated properly for a short time, although usage was light. Suddenly, I got...

Consumer review by:

No W2K support!

 

Precision Scan software will not work correctly and stop working altogether under Windows 2000. It is not a matter of Windows 2000. It is a poorly engineered software to be compliant with W2K.

Buttons on front

Won't work with W2K ; Some applications warn that they won't work

Consumer review by:

Fast and ready in seconds; can this get any better?
