Don't buy unless you enjoy agony

 

don't waste your money, you will be very sorry you ever saw this scanner

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...

hp 8270 scanner

 

nice looking piece of hardware

Program does not initilize hardware and the tech support are lost. They say the unit is sensative and must keep a short usb cord. after two weeks and two units I would say go to another product

Scanjet 8270, TERRIFIC MACHINE

 

I recently "upgraded" my HP Scanjet 8250 to an HP Scanjet 8270 scanner and I am so pleased. I have always been a believer in using individual computer accessories vs. the "all in one" as I have found the performance and durablitly is much better than...

The HP 8270 has flaws but gets the job done

 

A decision was made at my workplace to digitize all paperwork that was to be archived. In the computer age of today, the fastest way of doing so, is to get a good scanner and turn everything into a PDF document. So far so good. Since the amount of ...

lots of functions, good scan quality

slower than advertised, speed heavily dependent on your computer

25 PPM? Right...

 

For being a "step up" from the HP7490, I'd rather not upgrade. This scanner not only takes at least 10 minutes to start up, but it takes +2 minutes to scan a 5-page document in greyscale using the ADF. Then if you use HP's software, the file size is...

If you're looking for a good time-waster, this is it

Slow scans, heavy lid, and very noisy
