HP Scanjet 7800

 

The HP Scanjet 7800 ($799 direct) is unquestionably the oddest-looking desktop scanner I've ever seen. Imagine an equilateral triangle that's been cut in half, then propped up on its shortest side, and you'll have the Scanjet's basic cross section....

Excellent software package. Twain and ISIS driver support

Card scan feature and front panel scan menu need improvement

Oddly designed, the HP Scanjet 7800 is strong on software and features, but some functions fall short.

Poor Reliability, Lots of Jambs

 

Don't buy this machine, learn from my experience.

It continually jambs, I spend more time clearing, resetting than actually scanning the documents. For everyone page that it scans one jambs. After only 2,000 pages scanned, now only one side of the double-sided scanner is working (black streaks)

Good software, that's all

The software is good (not great) and gives you a lot of options. I have not used all the software that comes with the scanner. I scan to pdf and then use Adobe Acrobat for OCR conversion. I have a lot of very old type written doents and it has worked...

I got this primarily for doent scanning. It is very fast and will scan two sides. The footprint is small which is great because I was worried about not having enough room for it. It has many scanning options for setting up different types of jobs and...

This scanner is supposed to work with VISTA but it would not install on my computer. I tried about 6 times and it would not install. The HP data sheet for this product shows XP compatibility and other places shows VISTA compatibility. The CD ROM says...

Fast!

 

I purchased this to reduce document scanning times to help facilitate a paperless office. I am very pleased with this for documents, but I still keep a flatbed on hand for those unusual-shape scan jobs. Using the auto-rotate option takes a little bit...

25ppm scanning (200dpi) and can scan both sides at once making it 50 images per minute. It will just churn through a stack of paper and get the job done. I have experienced very few misfeeds or jams. It is nice that you don't have to worry about the...

Scanning color using the TWAIN/ISIS driver seems to be off, but it is great when using the WIA driver. Sometimes the software locks up trying to retrieve the scan, but I think this is a software issue and not attributable to the scanner itself. Either...

I would definitely recommend the product for someone that is trying to organize all their doents.

The speed is amazing. The software is very user friendly

The processing speed of the doents appears to take longer than anticipated

Product Specifications

Now your whole workgroup can manage office documents with a powerful, programmable, yet compact HP ScanJet 7800 Document Scanner that includes a suite of versatile document management software. Increase productivity with automatic scanning. Rather than loading each page by hand, the automatic document (ADF) feeder allows you to load up to 50 pages at once. Both sides of the page are scanned simultaneously with one-pass two-sided scanning, delivering a speed of 50 images per minute (ipm) for two-sided documents (singlesided documents process at 25 pages per minute). Save time with customized scan profiles. Settings for recurring scan jobs - paper size, file destination, and more - can be saved as scan profiles and employed again later at the touch of a button. HP Smart Document Scan Software supports up to 30 scan profiles and comes with preset profiles to get started. The scanner has a pull-out reference chart to list profiles and their corresponding numbers. Scan a variety of paper sizes, weights and types. The scanner handles everything from 2 by 3.5 inch cards - such as plastic or laminated IDs, insurance and business cards - to documents up to legal size (8.5 by 14 inches). Adjust the paper tray to fit specific page widths to easily scan odd-size documents, such as checks. Flexibly convert and deliver. HP Smart Document Scan Software provides everything needed to scan, correct errors, convert, and deliver electronic files. Convert your hardcopies into a variety of popular file formats: including Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word and Excel, Corel, WordPerfect, TIFF, and JPEG. Electronic files can be easily edited, e-mailed, delivered to local or network folders and organized. A preview window lets you rearrange, delete or add scanned pages. Use bar codes to separate jobs and manage workflow.
