I shopped on line at several places.....then chose this scanner based on reviews....price was fair....could have gotten cheaper but liked what reviewers said.........

Worth the price for the screen-grab software alone. Does a good job scanning though it is difficult to reach the inside edge of columns in a bound book or magazines that cannot be sufficiently flattened. The leading edge of the case tends to drag, it would be better if the manufacturer would round the edges. Otherwise an OK buy.

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.

I'm very pleased with the results I get from this scanner with documents and images. Unless it's a big job I use it even when there's a flatbed scanner near because it's so convenient. . As title agent I am able to work faster than others while getting the information that I need at an ease. This helps my company that I am working for save money .This makes me more efficient as I can keep my train of thought while working on a certain piece of land at a time, and I get the information as soon as I can reach my computer. Although the output is only in jpg format, if you have an all-one-printer you may already have software to convert it to pdf. For best results use a straight edge on the side of the document to guide the scanner so it stays perpendicular to the document. If the document has folds, put a piece of clear plastic over it like a document sleeve so the scanner doesn't snag on the fold bumps. Obviously this isn't possible with every document such as when scanning a page of a book. The product shipped fast, the product produces high quality scans, is simple to use, good price, no easily breakable parts. Extremely satisfied with my purchase.

This is the best handheld I've ever used. It's portable and doesn't drain the batteries like alot of models out there. Would like to have had the option of an a/c adapter, but you can't always get what you want! When you use the scanner, make sure the paper doesn't fold up as you scan down, and make sure the imaging plate is flat. I tried copying a book, and in the middle, the scanner would not fit on the right side. Options are to turn the book the other way, or scan bottom up, reversing the scanner. I'm really glad I purchased it. I use it with my printer software to view the images. Can't figure out why the ABBYY screen shot was included with it.

The scanner is very reasonably priced. Its portability is excellent. After a few minutes you can get the hang of it on how fast to move it over the scanned surface to be able to get a good image. . Takes a little practice and seems to be more sensitive on high definition settings. In less than one minute of evaluating the scanned images one is able to learn how to move the scanner. I have obtained great results scanning both color and b/w images. It has proved invaluable when the sources of information scanned cannot be removed from a particular area. Images obtained from 3 d surfaces like books have been good and legible. The included software is fairly good. The fact that the equipment does not need to be attached to a computer to be able to scan is an advantage as one can travel lighter. It doesn't work if the microsd is not inserted so be sure to buy one along with the scanner if u dont have one already. Controls are toggle switches very easy to use; included instructions straight to the point. LCD is tiny so if you're above 40 you'll need eyeglasses to see well for the first few scans. You'll memorize the location of the icons for the next scans.It absolutely works. The best thing is the portability. If you are doing document research and taking notes you will love using this. It is a little tricky using it on books but works better then taking handwritten notes on 3x5 cards. I know what to get my college age grandkids. I bought a Micro SD 2G card and don't know yet if this is large enough for large projects but will find out. Neat little product!

was excited to receive scanner but the instructions are terrible. after figuring it out still couldn't get it to scan satisfactorily. most times the scan would skid causing the picture to skew. after doing it many many times could not get a consistent picture.

This Scanner is great! I am having so much fun scanning photos and documents. It is very easy to setup and operate. I have old black and white pictures of my mother and father and it's the only copy left. Well now thanks to VividScan, I am able to save copies of these photos on my SD card and view or print them online. Also, I received a 4GB SD card with my scanner. This is a great buy, thank you Overstock,

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.

I found the instructions lacking in the specific way to start the "Time Set" and formating. There is a step needed that says to use a very small blunt pointer to make contact with the initializing points. You see a small hole but no clue what size instrument was needed to make the contact. It is hard to get an excellent copy when there are bumps or paperclips in the document. I also have not seen any error notices lighting up. I have been very satisfied with the quality when a correct surfacr was used for the document. I would definitely recommend it to anyone having to collect a volume of information. Overstocked.com provided excellent customer service when I had a problem with the first scanner (lack of knowleldge how to set time). I received prompt service and wish to say thank you Overstocked.com.

I did my homework and this seemed like it would be a great product. However, I was never able to get it to work. The directions were very poor, but mainly it frequently would NOT turn on, no matter how long/short I pushed the button. Also, I bought the chip and followed the directions but could never get my computer to recognize it. I spoke w/ Overstock who set me up w/a conference call w/ the manufacturer, who also did not seem to know a whole lot. The apparatus comes w/a disc that would install only partially, then freeze up my computer, necessitating me to turn off the computer, and then it would not reinstall. They sent me a new disc which did the same thing. The manufacturer agent finally said that the disc wasn't necessary and perhaps was only advertising for me to buy other products...who knows. However, Overstock was great, both Chelsea and Ann W. made the return easy, and i will gladly by from them again...just not this product. I've done without a scanner this long, so maybe I don't really need one after all.
