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.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZED AT HOW WELL THIS LITTLE WONDER WORKS. RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX - WITHOUT ANY ADJUSTMENTS - IT SCANNED EVERYTHING FROM SOCIAL SECURITY CARDS TO FULL 8 1/2 X 11" DOCUMENTS PERFECTLY. COLOR WAS TRUE - CLARITY OF WORDS WAS PERFECT. COMES WITH ALL NEEDED CABLES AND EVEN A CARRYING BAG. BOUGHT IT WITH THE 8GB MEMORY CARD - EXPECT IT WILL HOLD HUNDREDS OF DOCUMENTS. EXTREMELY EASY TO TRANSFER TO COMPUTER FOR PRINTING. I AM AMAZED!

After receiving the HP Scanjet 1000, and loading in all the software 4 disks, 1 driver, and 3 different aplication softwares. Found out that it wasn't preforming as advertised. there spec sheet on verstock.com as well as spec sheet downloadable from HP was in error. I purchased it for the boasted scan size of 8.5 x 34. I was unable to get this and thought I was missing a twain driver. I called Overstoc.com support and was on the phone for about 45 minutes, no resolution here, even though the Tech left no stone unturned. I called Hp, after 5 times calling and getting switched to another department that was the incorrect one, because no one could find or didnt work on this scanner. Reached a tech support person who helped me find out that they didnt have an answer based on all the support avail to him. He escalated the case. 2 days later i got a call and email saying that I should be happy to know that they are going to correct there software specs to 8.5 x 14. Yes I was just thrilled. I will now go back and read all the spec sheets for the 10 plus HP devices I have to see if they are correct. What a waste of time, I spent an hour and 1/2 working with HP techs. On a lighter note, the Scanner can work right off usb port no addl power needed. It is very lightweight and comes with carring case. scans well if you change the default dpi, and use the automatic settings for image correction. If you scan an image longer than 14 inches, it will stop scan function till you close out software then reload. Says paper jam or some other lame excuse but will not let you reset till you close everything out. If you don't need to rely on HP specs , then it works well.
Your new scanner can help you digitize your photo album, scan documents to send by e-mail and make copies for printing. Scanners and printers are essential office electronics for home or business. Knowing the answers to a few of these frequently asked questions will help you identify the right scanner for whatever imaging projects you have in mind.
