We've been talking about the ScanJet 4850 as a high-end scanner, but the truth is that its price tag really isn't that high. For a model with this many features and this level of construction, it really is a steal.

Well built and robust, Powerful, Impressive optical resolution, Excellent quality scans

Software requires extra hard drive space

Hewlett-Packard Scanjet 5500c

 

High performance

Low quality photograph scans

With its zippy automatic document feeder, the HP Scanjet 5550c is well suited for steady OCR work, but getting the best image quality from photos requires some tweaking.

We've been talking about the 4850 as a high-end scanner, but the truth is that its price tag really isn't that high. For a model with this many features and this level of construction, £92 is something of a steal.

Hewlett Packard - ScanJet 4300C

 

The 4300C is a fairly hefty scanner, although the overall design isn't unpleasant. It offers a choice of either USB or parallel interfaces. We tested it using the USB hook-up and the installation went very smoothly. ...

HP Scanjet 4850

 

An attractive, ultra high-resolution scanner that's as quick as it's easy to use but comes with a whopping 450MB of software.

HEWLETT PACKARD SCANJET G4010 PHOTO CLR FB

 

Good product; sturdy construction; usual HP quality;

Best repro of any of the scanners I''ve had to date. No need to "enhance" original scan. no need to lock when transporting like some scanners require

Had problems getting it to scan entire dovent, but customer service resolved. [Select Settings/scan settings/Solution Center scan button settings/ and c "show preview".] It took 30 min for the Custormer Service Rep to find this, but it solved the problem
