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...

Lots of features, good monochrome document scanning, sheet feeder

Slow duplex scanning, visible banding with sheet fed scans, cleaning

The 5590 is a good scanner for office documents but less so for photos and film

Feeder Fail

 

Not happy with HP Replaced my all in one printer with Brother. Much better and quiet.

Sharp scan images

Multi page feeder does not work. Another HP fail!

returning

 

well packaged and easy to install and set up. was able to determine file location for saving documents easily.

ADF (automatic document feeder) does not work. Jams easily. We could not get further than one sheet, did not scan two sided. Jammed every time it tried to scn second side. Essentially useless for desired purpose. I am returning today

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
