This small Canon Flatbed Scanner does everything I need it to do to meet my needs. It is an easy setup with the computer. I simply put a scanned-items folder on my desktop and items conveniently are placed therein for easy and future use. I do not scan a lot of documents so using the manual input of documents on the inside glass does not pose a timing problem for me. For a versatile scanner that also copies, the price is a tremendous bargain for the intermittent user. Definitely recommend this product.

I purchased this scanner to help us when scanning books and needed another scanner. I works well great, the software that came with it is easy to learn and use.

The obvious advantage of the 4800 is its well designed approach to scanning book pages: Having the scanner glass come to the edge of the unit so that scanning pages without any hint of a binder shadow is simply part of the design is a great idea. Of course, providing the scanner with the ability to scan high resolutions quickly is equally important to the often arduous task of transforming book chapters into Portable Document Files and this scanner provides plenty of speed for that part of the job as well. The inclusion of "Book Pavillion" software to scan multiple pages into a single PDF adds simplicity and speed to the process and automates certain functions such as delimiting the scan area to the book page size automatically, allowing for color, gray scale, and black and white scans on the fly, and making provision for rotating pages to a common orientation before generating the final PDF. The software can even automatically rotate odd or even scans to produce a uniform orientation without user intervention. The result is that scan jobs are done quickly and yield a final document the quality of which can only be considered exceptional.

Scanner arrived very shortly after placing order. Excellent scanner with tremendous ease of use. Excellent value for price paid. Very satified with both HP and Overstock.com.

The scanner is super fast and works great, would definitely recommend it to anyone that needs a good scanner. We are using it to scanner medical records into our electronic health system.

Had to return original one because of poor resolution. The second one I received works very well.

It is a slim and small device, does the job it's set up to do pretty well. One minor thing about the scanner -a little bit noisy and not the fastest. But we bought this piece of equipment for home use and happy with it.

So far I love this scanner! It stays in "getting ready to scan" mode a little long, but does a beautiful job - even with 3-dimensional objects.

What a total POS. I scanned less tan 100 slides and the bulb failed. I have the skill set to replace the bulb but you can't buy one. HP offers an exchange service but the price for an exchange is more than the unit cost. Why would I consider a replacement unit when I hate the unit I bought? The software that comes with this scanner is also well below industry standards. It is cumbersome and slow. I'm not surprised to see this unit being unloaded by many on line services - it's pretty obvious the scanner is a *** I have been an HP customer for decades but they are now at the bottom of my list. Can you say ZERO support.

I purchased this scanner because I have thousands of old photos from many generations that I wanted to be able to share with relatives. The scanner produces high quality, crisp images notated the age of the original photo. I think the setup was pretty simple too. Seeing the I Images appear on my screen was exactly what I needed.

We were looking for an Epson V700 to scan x-ray images into our dental software program. This scanner fits the bill perfectly. Images are clear, it is extremely easy to use, and the scanner fits the decor of our office. We have not used the scanner for photos or documents, but I would expect it would excel at those as well. Amazon had the same scanner with free shipping - but it was out of stock. Luckily I found Overstock also had the item - in stock, ready to ship, excellent pricing, amazing $2.95 shipping fee & quick shipping. We are thoroughly pleased with this purchase and will look to Overstock in the future for our office needs.

I purchased the HP G4050 scanjet photo scanner on 11-07-07 from Overstock.com and after using it for a couple of weeks I'm now ready to give a review on it. 1. I contacted Overstock via Live Chat to see if the scanner is compatible with Windows Vista and they told me no. I saw some place via the internet that it is compatible so I shopped for a scanner on HP's website and saw that the G4050 is Vista compatible so I went ahead and ordered it. 2. The installation was so simple and it installed on Windows Vista perfectly. 3. I had an old photo album of my Mother-In-Law's and didn't want to destroy the page with 6 pictures to the page on it but then discovered the scanner separates the pictures for you so you can work with each picture individually without cropping them. The scanner is noisy like all the other scanners I have owned but that is the only drawback I see. 4. Remember to turn the scanner off after your through scanning. Over all this is a great scanner with features on it, for example, it has a PDF button which I like plus the buttons are on the top of the lid for easy access. You won't go wrong purchasing this scanner.

I found the scanner easy to use and I am certainly no expert. I needed it to scan high def scans of old family photos and slides for use in reprinting. It has software that enables to you correct flaws in the photos or slides and they translate very well into good quality prints. It was not inexpensive, over $$$ but I feel it was worth the amount to get the scans that I need and will be needing for my work. I have had the scanner a few months now and have used it quite a bit and am still very happy with the results.

Very happy with this scanner. So far have scanned documents, photos, and a few negatives. Have yet to dive in and scan slides, but I expect it to perform sufficiently based on results so far. Thanks Overstock for offering this item and for its quick arrival.
