If you are going paperless, this is the best product for the money. Great for regular paper / documents

Don't buy if you need a document feeder

 

The software that comes with the system is great. Easy to use and produces quality scans. Great resolution

DO NOT..I repeat..DO NOT buy this scanner if you really need a document feeder for photos. It does not work. Every fourth photo jams. Very frustrating to pay $700+ for something that does not work properly

ADF PROBLEMS ESPECIALLY WITH DUPLEX

 

I have personally used the HP Scanjet 8250 for about nine months now. Overall it is a nice unit, but it is not without its' flaws. The most prominant problem is with the ADF, especially in the "duplex mode." The scanner will perform duplex scans, but ...

Excellent scan quality for photo, or document. Excellent software and scanning capabilities.

ADF jams which can be avoided with precautions, more frequent when using the "duplex feature."

Consumer review by:

Not for glossy paper

 

excellent tech support

persistent problems, not suitable for glossy paper
