HP Scanjet 5590

 

This pricey but proficient scanner includes an automatic document feeder that easily churns through stacks of documents.

The office-targeted HP 5590 is a good pick for OCR work, thanks to the proficient automatic document feeder that comes bundled.

HP Scanjet 5590

 

When you see a scanner with a 50-sheet, duplexing ADF built into its top cover, as with the HP Scanjet 5590 ($399.99 direct), it's a safe bet that it's designed to scan multipage documents for OCR and document management applications, as well as fax...

50-sheet, duplexing ADF and 35-mm transparency adaptor are standard. Handles OCR well. Better slide scan quality than most flatbeds

No batch scanning. Transparency adaptor is external, rather than an integral part of the unit. Lacks feature for removing scratches or dust from image

The HP Scanjet 5590 is clearly designed for business use, with a 50-sheet, duplexing ADF to make quick work of scanning, faxing, and copying multipage documents, at least compared to most other desktop flatbed scanner It also scans photos and 35-mm...

Not a good buy

 

It scans.. sometimes

It jams fairly often, the software looks like it was made in 1995, and the scan speed is TERRIBLE. I have time to go bake a potatoe by the time I can successfully scan 10 sheets without a jam

HP Scanjet 5590 Digital Flatbed Scanner

 

Quality and functionality of scanner products need improvement. We must use HP scanners because of compatability/warranty issues with our software- the fact is that currently we would use another brand if we could due to those 2 issues.

HP Scanjet 5590 Digital Flatbed Scanner

 

The only problem was the installation disk. I had to load the setup program individually and not automatic. Other than that the scanner has created great pictures from old 35 MM slides.

Good all purpose workhorse

 

this is a replacement for an older model that worked just fine for over eight years. The new model is slightly smaller and lighter and possibly a bit faster. It\'s a good all-purpose scanner for photos, pages from books, or large two-sided documents.
