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.

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
