I have been looking for a reasonably priced duplex ADF scanner for some time now, I want to scan a file cabinet of documents and shred the originals. I thought this HP was it, it isn't. I spent several hours over a few days giving this guy a workout. I scanned stacks of bank statements (30-35 pages at a time) (8.5 x 11) and mortgage documents (8.5 x 14) both single sided and double sided. Several times the ADF jammed (roller slipped and eventually gave up) and I had to man handle the stuck page out, I could find no way to release its grasp of the paper. These were not glossy pages, just typical bank statements. Other times one or two pages of a stack of 35 would scan in only a third of the page. It cannot scan duplex pages longer then 12 inches, I don't know why. Duplex scanning takes more then twice as long as simplex because it has only a single scanner and must flip the page (I think it does this flipping twice). The software wasn't smart enough to handle scanning mix length pages, if I had a document (for example: mortgage papers) with a mix of letter and legal size pages I had to tell the software that all the pages were 14 inches long otherwise it truncated the legal size to 11 inches. It all boils down to a lack of trust for me. Before I go shredding originals of these documents I need to be able to trust that I have good electronic copies and this scanner/software didn't establish that trust.

Have been using this scanner for about a month to archive financial, school and personal documents that have been just sitting in boxes. This is a solid feeling unit. It's fast. The auto sheetfeeder is sturdy and very reliable. I like being able to put in a stack of paper, start scanning, leave the room to do something else, then come back later and find it's done. Jams tend to be operator error -- forgot to pull a staple, didn't square up the paper before feeding, etc. The included software is adequate for basic image manipulation, and you can save images to .pdf format. Well worth the price especially if you consider that some places charge 25 cents per sheet to electronically archive documents.
