HP Scanjet G4050 review: HP Scanjet G4050

 

HP Scanjet G4050

Excellent scans, especially of very saturated originals; very nice industrial design.

Only supports sRGB color space; random color registration problems on slide scans; weak driver; many operations are very slow.

The HP Scanjet G4050 is a solid scanner that could use a driver overhaul and a better means of handling slides.

HP Scanjet G4050 Photo Scanner

 

The HP Scanjet G4050 delivers better scan color by scanning with six colors instead of the usual three.

Six-color scanning yields excellent color quality. Scans photographic prints and film. Can scan up to 16 slides at once.

Scan software is cumbersome in some ways and sometimes slow to react to a command.

HP ScanJet G4050 photo scanner

 

HP's ScanJet G4050 photo scanner offers a six-colour scanning process.

Good colour-quality but slow speeds make the HP ScanJet G4050 a more compelling proposition for those who occasionally need high-quality scans rather than for professional or semi-professional applications. At the price, there are alternatives that may...

HP ScanJet G4050

 

Hot on the heels of the Epson Perfection V700 and V750, which lured customers with the promise of not one but two lenses (reviewed by PC Advisor's sister website Digit here and here), comes this ambitious six-colour scanner from HP.

Considering the wealth of features on board, £202 seems a paltry sum to pay for the HP ScanJet G4050. It's about half the price of the Epson Perfection V700, yet the HP certainly isn't outclassed on general performance and results. If you have a...

HP Scanjet G4050

 

Superlative quality is let down by slow scan times and unintuitive driver software.

HP G4050 review

 

HP's G4050 flatbed scanner employs a novel two-pass technique to extract maximum detail.

Build quality, fundamental scan quality is good

Speed, poor control software, large design
