HP 8270 Does not support Adobe

 

Would not recommend the purchase of the Scanjet 8270. My operating system is Windows 7 64-bit.

HP name, 8.5x14" Flatbed scan surface

Duplex scanning results in frequent jamming. I can not scan multiple documents using Adobe Acrobat XI Pro without powering scanner down and shutting Acrobat. I have worked with both HP and Adobe without resolution of the problem. Can not control single...

Very difficult to install

 

It took 4 Hp technicians 2-3 hours each to remove software from the Hp Scanjet 8290 and to install the software for the Hp Scanjet 8270 for Windows 7 pro which was exceedingly frustrating since there did not seem to be adequate communication between...

Unusable

 

Like something out of the 80's. Was looking for an efficient scanner, but this is just unusable. Bad interface with the computer. Buttons on the scanner do nothing - the scanner must be operated by opening the scanning software in windows. As a...

Absurd price for technology that was literally available 10 years ago

 

One would hope that it works - although from the hands on reviews that is not a certainty.

Absurd price for technology (resolution/color) that was literally available 10 years ago. Low resolution scanners featuring a page feed feature have become cash cows aimed at businesses whereas high resolution scanners predominated 10 years ago. All...

Good Value in the Right Office

 

When I first brought this scanner I had a problem getting it initialize at first as well but with the newest set of HP drivers and software it works perfectly. I did not experence any issues with the length of the USB cable. Mine is on a 16ft cable...

Built like a tank. Autofeeder will draw just about everything accurately. Duplex Scanning works great execpt in certain situations. (See Below) Huge legal sized flatbed with really high resolution. Quick scan buttons easy to setup and works great with...

The duplex reversing system jams if you try to duplex scan anything that has been tri-folded. Although this is a little of a hastle, it is easy to just scan each set of sides separtely in the same job and reassemble in ParerPort or the free HP scanning...

Get a different scanner

 

I was sent this one to replace a different one I had. This states it can hold up to 50 pages in the auto-feed unattended... I can put a MAX of 16 in there, and I have to watch every page as it scans or it jams up. I have had this scanner less than a...

Junk

 

We have had this scanner for almost a year and have had nothing but problems. It jams easily, is slow, changes settings, has streaks, etc. etc. etc. Would not recommend it to anyone.
