    • Awesome Scanner

      I purchased the HP G4050 scanjet photo scanner on 11-07-07 from 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.

    • Perfect scanner for my meeds

      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.

    • G4050 Scanner

      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.

    • Product does what it promises

      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.

    • Great Scanner

      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.
