Customer Reviews of HP Scanjet G4010 Flatbed Scanner - 4800 dpi Optical - 96-bit Color - 8-bit Grayscale - USB
I installed this hardware on a new computer running Win'XP so I had nothing that first needed to be uninstalled. I chose the non-standard installation because I did not want HP's photo editing software (I have Adobe Photoshop Elements and Photoshop Album) and I have no use for the IRIS software for converting scanned documents into text files. The installation went smoothly and my document and 35mm slide scans were successful at the first attempt. 35mm slides can be scanned either mounted or unmounted. The scanner seems exceptionally easy to use and is a huge improvement over the ten year old scanner that it replaces. Everything about the scanner's appearance reflects very high quality and so far I am very satisfied indeed. The documentation that comes with the scanner is very limited, sufficient for the install but does not cover any of the adjustable scan settings - you have to go to the help files for that.
perfect slide transfer fantastic scanner9/27/2010
The g-4010 by H P is a wonderful scanner easy to use and very good at reproducing pictures from old color slides.
works good but...9/20/2010
The scanner itself works great, but the HP solutions software would not work AT ALL. I spoke for 6 HOURS with someone from India named Joe, trying to figure it out. We downloaded and re-downloaded the software package with no success. Then they gave me another option of using a freeware software program, but that didn't work well either, providing me with crooked scans. We ended up buying a new program, and everything works great now!
A software problem, evidently. It would not work with my windows XP. After a week of emails with HP, I started phone conversations with HP. After almost 3 hours, HP gave up, and suggested that I load the HP Vista software. (I don't have the Vista System, but did have the HP Vista disk). I loaded. It worked for two hours, and then everything crashed. It took me a week to recover. NO, it is not hooked up yet.
