HP ScanJet Pro 2500 f1 Flatbed Scanner


The HP ScanJet Pro 2500 f1 Flatbed Scanner has a good software suite, and can scan either from its flatbed or 50-sheet ADF.

HP ScanJet Pro 2500 f1 review


The ScanJet Pro 2500 combines flat-bed and sheet-fed scanning to good effect

Would like a simple way to print scan


The Scanjet G3010 which this scanner replaced had a simple one button to push and have the scan sent directly to my printer. A simple copy machine! The 2500 f1 requires me to save the scan and then go to the saved scan file and print the item.

Product performs extremely well and is fast.


Product performs as expected, which is extremely well, and is very fast. A future enhancement for this device would be a network port (ethernet). That way multiple home computers would be able to access it.

Excellent and fast


The document feeder did an excellent job of feeding and scanning to pdf some very old legal (11 by 14) documents. The PDF's printed out well on 11 by 14 paper. Scanning some old black & white photos were excellent and fast,
