HP Scanjet N6010


HP's uniquely designed scanner zips through text documents but drags on color pages.

Includes full-version OCR software, Fast at scanning text

Slow at scanning graphics

HP Scanjet N6010


One of the potential head-scratchers comes from the N6010's size, at 12.3 by 12.6 by 10.6 inches (HWD) with the output tray closed. The N6010's height makes it a little imposing for a personal scanner on a desktop; its footprint is even more of an...

Easy to use, with four definable scan buttons. Excellent choice for document scanning. Includes indexing software

A little large for a desktop. Less than ideal for business-card scanning

The HP Scanjet N6010 does a great job as a low-cost personal document scanner, but it doesn't handle business cards as well as it should.

Not Up to HP Standards


When the scanner works, it is fast and quiet with good images. The hassle factor is to great to get much useful productivity out of the scanner.

Small Footprint. USB connection. Good Front Controls

Paper feeder is just bad. It feeds multiple pages most of the time when scanning a stack. Software is cranky. Paper jam in feeder locks everything up. I have to turn the scanner off and back on frequently to get it work with Acrobat 8. If paper jams,...

Would be great if it worked


The amount of time I save using this scanner is less than the amount of time I spend rescanning documents. I was more efficient with my cheapo flatbed scanner.

When this works it's great. It scans stacks of papers completely unattended and converts them to searchable PDFs

It rarely works. Quite often I have to scan 30+ page documents. I end up having to rescan document several times because of paper jams and skipped pages

HP Scanjet N6010


I love HP printers and I've bought eight of them over the years. I'm disapointed with HP's effort in the scanner department. The product design is almost there, but that lack of speed in producing pdf documents leaves me with a device I can't use. Too...

The four-button design makes it easy to select the most common scanning functions. The overall design is simple and functional. Referring to the user guide is really only necessary to remind yourself to install the software before plugging the scanner...

The scanner is way too slow for scanning many one or two page documents (like receipts you pull out of your pocket at the end of the day.) You have to push the "Scan to PDF" button for a second or so, a brief push and nothing will happen. Then sit...
