HP Scanjet 4470c


The new Scanjet's admirable scan quality is offset by a short 90-day warranty period.

HP ScanJet 4470C


Used on seven computers. Variable but generally poor results on negative scanner. Best results with minimal drivers, 3rd party drivers work best. Capable of spectacular scanning w/right software. Best w/ Win98 but works well in XP--use generic TWAIN...

Decent Hardware

Software a minus

HP ScanJet 4470C


This scanner has allowed me to preserve my photo collection with ease and efficiency. It has performed well and has never failed to operate properly.

I biougfht the unit to place my collection of 3000+ slides on CDs. In addition I have made hundreds of B&W and color scans of photos and documents. I like the flexible editing and sizing software

According to the Microsoft Vista test, the scanner is not compatible with Vista

Scanner worked for awhile and stopped. HP level 3 support couldn't help get it restarted. Got refurb replacement - glass dirty on the inside. HP wouldn't replace again. Replacement wouldn't work either. Finally found a "prohibit scanner" or something...


slow, quality, glass

I have had this scanner for several years. It has never broken or not worked properly. I guess that since I only use it for home stuff it is perfect for me. I have windows xpsp2 and it still works with no problem. Guess I am lucky?

does what I want

none I can think of

I've been using this scanner for over 2 years now. Reliable and fast scanning. Great stand-alone software that allows full control. Perfect for making more than one scan in the same sitting

Because the scanner comes without "intuitive" software (tahnk goodness), you need to have *some* knowledge on how to scan
