Good scanner


Easy installation. Scans slides and negatives very well

Had to find the folder, created by the installation. May be because already had HP hardware

Good Scanner for the Price


This HP scanner worked great out of the box with simple set-up. With the free 3-day shipping and low Newegg price, there was a savings of about $20 over buying locally

Haven't found any after the first week

The Hewlett Packard Scanjet 4370 is a grand product! It was super easy to setup! Just a simple plug in the included USB cable and then plug in the included power pack cord. Then just insert the Scanjet software suite CD. Install the included software ...

Fast previews! Fast scans! Great scanner tweaking options!

Consumer review (



A lively color output of 3600x7200 dpi, the ScanJet 4370 isn't going to the Guiness, but its ability to scan 3-D objects and read text transcripts (via OCR conversion) simply makes it a good scanner.

Isn't it great that this scanner has a simple interface? And with four buttons to choose from, its an easy access towards plain scanning, up to transferring those images on the web, and back to sending them via e-mail. Its all laid up nicely.

Some said comments regarding driver issues, but I don't have any. Its simple to install, can't understand why somebody's failing at these areas.

Scan resolution enhanced disclaimer (long):What is the maximum resolution at which I can scan? HP Scanjet scanning systems will allow you to specify a resolution of up to 999, 999 enhanced dpi. In addition, by using lower dpi and high-scale factors (enlarging the image using dimension or resize tool), you can achieve a very high enhanced dpi. However, it is important to note that the maximum resolution that can be actually achieved depends upon various factors, including computer speed, available disk space, memory, the size of the image being scanned and bit-depth settings. Thus, depending on your system and what you are scanning, you may not be able to scan at certain resolutions. For example, using the same image and same dpi, scanning in 24-bit color requires at least 24 times more memory (in the form of hard disk space and available memory) than scanning in 1-bit black and white. In addition, the size of the area being scanned is very important. For example, scanning a 4 x 6-inch photograph at 999, 999 enhanced dpi and 24-bit color requires over 64
