HP Scanjet G3110 Photo Scanner

 

Installation is simple: Remove the packing materials, run the automated installation routine from disc, and plug in a USB cable when the program tells you to. I ran my tests on a Windows XP system, but the scanner also comes with a full set of scan...

Does a reasonably good job with photographic prints. Convenience scanning for slides and strips of film

Slow. Customizing settings is cumbersome

The HP Scanjet G3110 Photo Scanner combines a capable, if slow low-cost scanner for photographic prints with additional features suitable for occasional use.

Review: ScanJet G3110 flatbed scanner

 

If you're in the market for an affordable photo scanner with the ability to capture accurate color and detail, along with the occasional slide or film scan, the HP Scanjet G3110 is worth considering.

Very good overall image quality ; Built-in transparency adapter

Slow scan speeds

The G3110 has a dark gray body and a shiny and curved, off-white lid. Four buttons built into the lid allow you to scan to file, PDF, to email or to a printer (copy). The transparency adapter allows you to scan a single 35mm filmstrip or four...

HP Scanjet G3110

 

The HP Scanjet G3110 is the best of flatbed scanners in the $100 price range. It supports high-density image scans in color or grayscale. Excellent optics and the inclusion of a transparent media adapter allow it to scan film media with great fidelity...

No other flatbed scanner measures up to the HP at this price point

The warranty is 90 days in an industry where the standard is one year

The HP Scanjet G3110 is the best of the budget scanners.

Competent, but slow

 

High density, accurate scanning at a reasonable price from a reputable vendor

It's a bit slow. Under Windows 7, it doesn't remember the sheet size, so you have to preview every shot and adjust. Plus, although the scanner looks like it will handle legal size paper, it's shorter than that by about two typewritten lines

God Awful Driver/Software?

 

All settings are made prior to scanning with no ability to edit without exiting & firing up the scanner again. I publish to pdfs. File size is important to me. With my old scanjet I could scan with defaults then look at a 256 adaptive palette image to...

The price. The one button copy function

Most user hostile interface I've seen since UNIX

Driver kept crashing. Never got to use. Returned

 

Updated on Jan 28, 2009

It was cheap

Never got past install. For some reason the driver consistently crashed in the same place in install. Returned to store and got Epson V500. I am very hapy with it

Consumer review by:

fine scanner

 

Scanning pictures so far, I do intend on scanning negatives and slides also. I am starting to understand the software a little better now. Good results so far.

HP Scanjet G3110 flatbed photo scanner

 

Instruction manual is not easy to follow nor covers the product operation very well.The only way I can scan without getting the slide holder into the scan, is to place a blank sheet of paper over what I am trying to scan. I looked through the manual...

Consumer review by:

Not impressed

 

Does not retain the proportions of the item being scanned - 4 by 7 p.b. scans as something like 3 by 8. Also, reproduction is not very sharp.
