5-0 out of 5 stars Use some sense.....
GOOD review follows! First, this is NOT the best choice for PERFECT scans of photos or fragile documents. It does a perfectly adequate job with snapshots and newspaper clippings, an EXCEPTIONAL job with color or B/W letter-size material. It scans for fliing/fax, OCR or color images, up to 600 DPI.
If you are careful, you can easily feed sheets into this device without trouble. Be patient. It has an included software application that allows scanning multiple succesive sheets to one document, for convienence...but you can separate the pages later! Cool. Or you can group different scans to one document later. Cooler!

The image editing software is pretty darn good. Why? Because it has a decent selection of tools while not being overly complicated to use. You can use it as a desktop-type filing system too.

Some versions of the "Paperport" software export scans to PDF! If you understand what that means, you'll jump for joy...

But you know where the Strobe REALLY excels? You can quickly scan a document, drag it to Word and have about 95% immediately recognized as an editable Word file. Very little re-typing. How many times do you need some information IN your computer at school or work that exists only in a printed form? Wow! And you did this in about 30 seconds...

The Strobe is not perfect, but it does many jobs well enough to overlook that it is not the best solution of any ONE job. But it's the 90% solution for a TON of jobs! Buy it. You will not regret it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Pissed
Visioneer did an excellent job taking my money and giving me nothingin return.The software is extreamly unflexable(proprietary format, automation is faulty, very few useful settings).The scanner itself never worked properly.It cuts of pages too soon, no mater how many times it was calibrated, the pages twist as they go through sometimes, the switch to make it scan doesnt always work, it doesnt grab the paper evenly, etc.

On top of all this, they have NO customer support.They dont even exist beyond their website.I have tried to email and call any number i can with no luck.

Avoid all Visioneer products!

1-0 out of 5 stars does not even earn one star.
this product, just like some other visioneer product, is WORTHLESS, because it is unstable. Sometimes it works just fine, other times does not work. terrible support. they do not even have 1800 number listed on their websites and they close at 4:00 pst.

1-0 out of 5 stars Good idea. Lousy execution
This is my fourth-and probably last--Visioneer scanner. And I plan to return this one. If you already have PaperPort (I had version 9.0) you have to completely UNINSTALL it in order to add this scanner. (Huh?) And removal is not straightforward. (Read some of the troubleshooting instructions on Visioneer.com; they should be embarrassed.) The uninstall did not work, so I had to download 2 different files from Visioneer.com to clean up the mess. Finally, PaperPort 8.0 installed, but it never found the scanner. Prompted by the web site, I deleted the twain files on my computer and installing a downloaded driver-which resulted in a strong Microsoft warning that this file was not compatible with Windows. At one point, PaperPort would consistently close immediately after being opened-it didn't crash, it just closed itself.

Meanwhile, the tech support number included in the scanner package was "disconnected or no longer in service." The number provided on the web site has hours so short that I can't use their support for my home computer. And have you tried their touted "SARA" to troubleshoot a problem? Don't bother.

These are just a few of the problems I encountered. I had been perfectly satisfied with my old Strobe (which was also a headache to install), but Visioneer doesn't support Windows XP for the old Strobe. (I don't trust them to support the next OS upgrade either.) If you like nightmares and complex computer challenges, then Visioneer scanners are for you. As for me, I'm going shopping.

4-0 out of 5 stars small size makes it ideal for new, niche uses
EDITED: After one year of use, my earlier claims were overly optimistic.The hardware seems good, as far as it goes, but the software is ridiculously buggy and unreliable.
------------------------------
First--this is not a flatbed scanner; so keep one handy.This is not a high-speed sheetfed either; don't try to use it for those purposes and things work out well.SOMETIMES.

Ideal for portable scanning--the kind of scanning where you go into a library, or an office, or other location.Use it as a fax replacement for printed docs, as an alternative to photocopying and carrying, as a convenient device for sorting and recording receipts, bills, and what-not while traveling on the go, and it works great.

Many earlier gripes compared this scanner to very different products--or simply slammed it for lack of support. (Concur: the support sucks, the downloads don't work - and reinstalling drivers adds SPYWARE - that BMupdate.exe is ugly).

The interface seems intermittent (REVISED: TOTALLY UNRELIABLE): sometimes, I have to unplug/replug the scanner after a particularly long job, and it seems pretty random.That slows things down, but isn't a fatal flaw.

Still, for real estate, student, legal, design, and other niches, this scanner is ideal.Don't like it for it's portability?Try lugging a flatbed or fullsize sheetfed + power supply to the library! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Average
This scanner is good and bad at the same time. It is horribly slow, but I'm using the pictures I'm scanning for a slideshow of pictures throughout my life at my Bar Mitzvah party, and the quality of the pictures are very good.

Be warned, scanning negatives on this scanner requires very high resoulution (but I think that this is the way with all scanners I'm not sure), and it takes a VERY VERY long time to scan. It took ten to twenty minutes depending on the settings for ONE PICTURE. They turned out in good quality, but I was highly dissatisfied with the time it took.

Overall, this scanner is pretty good. But if you are a person that needs pics in a hurry, this is not for you. But if you are creating a slideshow (like me) and have time for it, this scanner is a very good choice.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Scans, Slower than Molasses in January
I bought this scanner because I was looking to scan negatives, and I was attracted by the low price and high scan resolution.Of course, you get what you pay for.In this case, it seems that I paid for Photoshop Elements 2.0 ($35), and a $100 scanner.The scans are quite sharp, and it comes with a lit adapter for negative scans.The downside is that the scanner is excrutiatingly slow.A 4800 dpi scan (4 times the resolution a film developing place puts on a photo cd) of a single image from a negative strip took nearly 10 minutes to scan.It was slow, but a very sharp and clear scan.A smaller scan (1200 dpi, roughly 1000 x 1500 image, about equivalent to a photo cd) took 5 minutes to scan the image.

The other flaw is that the negative holder has no "feet," so if your scanner is not even, it will slide across the glass while you are scanning.Putting the back of the scanner off of the desk leant it back, and kept it in place well enough, but it's unfortunate that I had to make such a gimmicked solution.Again, though, you get what you pay for.For less than $150, it's hard to find a 9600 dpi optical scanner.Verdict - flawed, but nice image.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Another reviewer praised this scanner because it scanned photos well. I would concur, but other than that this scanner is a bust. It is clumsy to use and the controls are not user friendly. Despite claiming to make use of USB 2.0 technology it is excruciatingly slow, even with plain B&W low res text. It is virtually useless for scanning multiple pages of text into, for example, a .pdf file because after each page you have to tell it what you want it to scan again. And whose idea was the black background on the lid? Since it is difficult and time consuming to set up and scan you often end up with scans that are bordered with black rather than white. Endless pixels of waste that have to be cropped and also sacrafice some of the quality of the scan. I plan on donating the scanner to the Goodwill and I kick myself for not returning it while I had the chance

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Scanner For Film To Digital Processing
I've been holding out on a scanner for quite a while as I've been mainly concerned with digital cameras and skipping the step of going from film to digital.While out shopping I was browsing through the scanner department when this modern high tech looking scanner caught my eye.I went home and researched the brand and found out that they basically invented the scanner and have a long history as I was concerned if they would be around tomorrow if I had a problem with it.Going back to the store I found that they had one left in stock and quickly snatched it up.Bringing it home I found it extremely easy to setup and use.

The customers that bring me film images to scan in and create digital scrapbooks of their families and friends.The color quality that the scanner produces is far superior to what I had expected.The optics of this scanner are perfect for anyone who photos and wants to be able to quickly and easily take a photo and be working with it in the computer; whether it be to edit the photo, post it online or print it out.All in all I couldn't be happier!And ohh, it just looks so sleak! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst in every way
This is an awful scanner. You can spend an hour trying to get something to sit straight on the glass, and it can still be up to thirty degrees crooked when you see the image. The quality is bad. It's noisy, not to mention heavy and bulky. The kicker, though, is the pathetic software that comes with it. If you don't have other software you can use, don't bother with this piece of junk

1-0 out of 5 stars F- Terrible Don't Get Worst Scanner Ever Worst Image Quality
Some of the reviewers on Amazon.com are in left field looking at right. This is by far the worst piece of crap ever from a company I respect, HP. How any of these people could recommend this piece of garbage is beyond me. The image quality of this scanner is so abysmal, its attrocious. If you're still stupid enough to buy this, after reading this review, then you and this scanner deserve each other. I also had alot of problems installing the software on my XP system, but I would have forgiven HP for that, if this was anygood. Before that I had an HP 5200C scanner that was totally superior to this in terms of quality of the image scaned. The amount of DPI's I used made no difference in the scan- it plain stunk. Don't get this piece of garbage. It also makes terrible noises too. Shame on you HP. Whoever designed this for HP should be fired.

1-0 out of 5 stars Dreadful support
Had trouble with the software from day 1.HP folks were of no help.Junk in my book.Next time I will stay clear of HP.

5-0 out of 5 stars What's all the Fuss??
I recently purchased this item from a local electronics store for a really good price (open box items are my best friend).In less than 15 minutes, I was able to scan twenty-one 8.5" x 11" pieces of artwork created by my students.Using the software provided by HP, I also took the items that were created in the landcape mode and rotated them.I renamed them, copied them into a file and also created a photo album.I then printed out the photo album, 15 images per page.OK...so it was able to scan very well.I then decided to test its ability to scan negatives and print them out.

I took a negative that was about 8 years old.Scanned it and then opened it in windows viewer.I printed one slide out as as an 8" x 10" print, and another as a 5" x 7".I printed them out on a laser printer using 600 x 600 dpi.Both printed out very well.

If you want to make money using the scanner, you might want to invest in something more sophisticated.However, it works just fine for the basic user in a home environment.

3-0 out of 5 stars If you buy it for Negs/Slides you will be disappointed.
This scanner seems to have been looked at more and more because of it's ability to scan negs and slides for a cost of less than $100. Let me caution you...you will get what you pay for.

The regular document scanning functions produce decent results, probably right up there with any other scanner in this price range. The negative scanning/slide scanning feature produces grainy, blotchy, blurry, mucky, pitiful images. Oh, sure; if all you want is something that will produce a decent web-ready 4x6 image, you can't go wrong. But; if you want a scanner that will produce a printable image, look elsewhere. This one will not do the job.

As for the software, this is probably the worst I have ever used. Everything is Javascript oriented, and HTML in style. The software locks up, you might get an "Image cannot be displayed" page, or just a plain blank window. Who knows? What worked fine five minutes ago will now receive "fatal errors" and no longer work worth a darn.

Truly folks, if you want a document/photo scanner, there are better ones out there for less. If you want a negative/slide scanner, there are much better ones out there if you will be willing to pay a little bit more.

Don't waste your money. HP didn't waste any of theirs on you. Not when it comes to the 3970, anyway. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Reasonable price, GREAT scans!
This is the big brother/newer model of the PrimeFilm 3600; please see my review of PrimeFilm 3600 for starters -- same included software, same physical housing.
The incorporation of Digital ICE3 into a basically very good scanner has turned this into a spectacular film and slide scanner!
Speed: With all Digital ICE3 turned off, the 3650 is somewhat faster than the 3600 (which I think of as "slow") -- making the 3650 "average" in speed (subjectively).With DICE3 turned on, it is about the same speed as the 3600 due to the increased processing required.
Scan Quality: Outstanding!Using the DICE3 has made scanning my 30 year old negatives painless, and my newer negatives effortless.Most discount photofinishers these days use machines that tend to scratch negatives; what used to be a painstaking process to remove the scratches and dust is now done by the scanner -- very effectively!Only complaint: the settings for Digital ROC (color correction) and GEM (grain removal) are a subjective 1-100 with no hint at what the numbers mean other than the default settings.Experimentation is necessary, although defaults seem to work well.
This scanner has NONE of the power and startup "eccentricities" of my 3600, making it a pleasure to use at all times.
I'd still like to see SilverFast Ai bundled, but that would boost the cost significantly.Cyberview X, the included software, is nice, but doesn't allow RAW saves - which is a prerequisite for archiving negative scans, especially with an infrared channel that can boost the file to 64-bit (16-bit each for RGB and infrared).It does, however, make the scanning of a 36-frame negative roll very easy and almost fully automated.I recommend VUESCAN (www.hamrick.com) for a full-featured, extremely customizable scanning program at a reasonable price.
Overall, you won't do better on a film scanner than the 3650 - even the most uninformed novice can use it to scan scores of negatives and slides without any technical knowledge, and come out with fantastic scans! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Rampant Clogging Problem
I'm about to receive my 2nd replacement CX6400 from Epson.Once the print heads clog (which is common w/ the Durabrite inks), you often cannot unclog them.Avoid.

1-0 out of 5 stars 05.16.05 - Another CX6400 Dies
This is just another independent review supporting what's already been said about this all-in-one machine, the Epson CX6400.The print nozzles clog after a year or so and the printer is rendered useless.I just put in new ink cartridges and have cleaned them numerous times (10X or more at this point) with the same results...no print on the page.The cartridges are 1/3 to 1/2 empty at this point and it appears there's no hope that the situation will improve.HP, I'm coming back home.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's the INK stupid...
I really liked this all-in-one BUT it's costing me a fortune in ink.I've owned two other printers before and both were "lesser models" that gave me more for my money - this eats up ink like it's the hungry tree in Little Shop of Horrors, and each cartridge (there are four) is between $25 and $33 and to choose only "black ink" requires two extra steps every single print job.I can't believe the issue isn't the hardware - that it's the INK that makes this purchase a major regret!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars don't buy it
I owned this printer for only 5 months before it stopped printing clearly. Now I have to clean the printer heads several times before even printing one page or it is smudged or too faint to read. Cleaning the heads sucks the printer cartridges dry, so I have to buy a new one every week almost. I will give up on this printer and buy a laser printer. It is such a piece of junk that I wanted to write this review to warn others. I've never written a review of any product before this. I would give it no stars if they offered that option.

2-0 out of 5 stars Ink issues will eat you alive
Some things which WILL happen with this printer:

Your print heads will clog.Each time you clean the nozzles you'll use about *1/8th* to *1/4th* of all your ink.Seriously.

Cleaning the print heads eventually won't work, and you'll have horrible banding which won't go away.

The ink goes SO fast it will make your head spin.Oh, BTW, that cleaning above (which will only work when the printer is brand new) costs you about $10 in ink EACH TIME you do it.

Even though the inks are seperate, if you run out of even one color you won't be able to print in black.Period.

When it tells you your ink is out and you go to replace it, you're horrified to find that there is still a decent amount of ink in the cartridge, but the cartridge has a computer chip which won't let you refill or re-use it no matter how much ink is still left.

Epson tech supports, well, SUCKS.Be forewarned, and avoid all Epson printers.

I had a C82, which seemed decent at the time, but it gobbled up ink, and began to have paper feeding problems which refused to go away.I though the All-in-One would be better.Nope.Worse.

I just bought a Canon PIXMA.AMAZING photo quality - their 4 (and 5) ink systems rival the 6-8 ink systems from Epson.Seriously.And the ink lasts WAAAAAAAAAYYYYY longer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Hardware & Software, Bug in Directions?
This is a great machine, and I'd recommend it to anyone who has a need to scan a relatively small number of slides and negatives. I'd have rated it five stars save for a single problem with the directions.

The one problem that I have with this product is the installation directions. They did not work for me when I followed them to the letter on my Win98SE machine. While all indications were "GO", neither one of my twain-complaint software programs - Paint Shop Pro 7 and the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2 included in the box with the scanner - would recognize the existence of the Pacific Image 3650u scanner, though both programs recognized my other two scanners. Frustration led me to request a refund!

But, I made one last try, and inadvertently, contrary to the directions, had the 3650u powered up during installation of the Cyber-X update I downloaded from Pacific Image's website. That did the trick! After a reboot all of the software recognized the 3650u scanner. After that, it was smooth sailing, exactly as advertised. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good printer - not so good scanner.
I have had my DCP-8040 for a week now.I wanted a laser printer, and I'm quite satisfied with this unit's printing abilities and speed.Its a great improvement over a cheap inkjet in every way, except for the lack of color - but I didn't have any particular need for color printouts.

But the feature that drew me to this unit was the 14-inch scanner on top.I would have bought a stand-alone printer if the scanner didn't tempt me.I have a standard scanner that I picked up for $20 at a sidewalk sale last year, and it works well.I bought it to scan my japanese laserdisc jackets (which are a little more than 12x12 inches).In order to scan the jackets with my old scanner, I had to scan each cover four times and then assemble the pieces.I thought with this new scanner I could cut that in half.But the scanning software Brother has provided leaves a LOT to be desired.For starters, you can't use the full plate.There is thus about an inch of glass that the scanner light covers, but cannot be accessed.That wouldn't be so bad, but except that its on BOTH edges!In other words, instead of placing what you want to scan in the corner along two edges, like with a normal scanner, you have to center it, carefully, by hand, along the exact center of one edge.Also, for some reason, my two scans are skewed way off somehow, such that if I try to blend the images together there are clearly missing portions along the sides, meaning I have to scan in four parts to get everything, and since this scanner doesn't scan any faster than my old $20 one at 300dpi, I've spent an extra $100 for nothing.Oh, also, my old scanner would turn the light off after a few minutes of inactivity.This unit's light is on AT ALL TIMES, unless you power the whole thing off.Cute.

So, my advise - skip this unit and go with a stand-alone Brother printer.And somebody else's scanner. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Ok machine, terrible software and support
HP's OfficeJet 7110 all-in-one looked great initially: a reasonably priced machine that prints in color, scans in color with a sheet feeder, copies, and sends and receives faxes.However, four problems arose in practice.First, color printing is often of poor quality because the colors don't quite line up.The 7110 has a feature to automatically align the colors, but this is a pain to use (it involves many steps that sometimes fail to work so you are led through the cycle several times) and sometimes does not help.Second, Macintosh OS X users may experience software problems.At first I could print sometimes, with reboots often fixing an inability to print, but for months now I have been unable to print at all.(I can print on another printer, so the problem is in the 7110's software.)HP's website acknowledges the problem but apparently does not provide a fix.Third, also on OS X, the scanning software has a bug so black-and-white scans take 8 times as much disk space as they should.Fourth, HP's technical support people invariably made excuses instead of resolving problems or submitting bug reports.For example, they found a brochure saying the 7110 scans in color with no mention of black-and-white, and therefore told me black-and-white scans are not supported, despite that their own software has a black-and-white scan button.Overall, I do not recommend the HP 7110 all-in-one for anyone.Windows users may suffer less than Mac users, as two of the four problems mentioned above may not affect Windows users.And eventually, the HP 7110 may be a better proposition, if HP fixes its software problems and overhauls its customer support.But for now at least, I would look for a maker other than HP.

1-0 out of 5 stars Such poor quality
Purchased 2 of these, for business use and deployment into our CEO's home/office environment, and all looked fined until it came time to test the scanning function and in particular from the ADF which is where the problems started.

The "Director" software just wouldn't work, multiple pages would scan ok as far as previewing them but come the stage you try to save them or send them to Word, up pops an error indicating you need to reinstall the scanning software due to a library not being found.

Using the "Scan to" function on the front panel of the device seemed to fair a little better but soon discovered, on a multiple page scan to Word, only the first page scanned fully and each subsequent page was only partially scanned with the results nicely overlaid on a single page in word just to add to add to the problem.

I attempted to get these issues resolved via emailing HP support over the next two days which is better than hanging on the phone as experienced my many reviewers I guess but the end result was still the same...i.e. no resolution. The support followed the lines of re-installing the software, cleaning out the registry, loading the previous version of the software from the website, updating the print-head firmware (an odd one to fix a scanning issue I know) etc

The machines/software were tested on 2 x WinXP and 1 Win2k platforms and in all cases had the same problems with the scanning function.

All its other functions appeared to be ok but given the problems had these units returned as being not fit for use. Given the other problems people have experienced with different aspects of these machines returning them seems a very wise move.

The other offerings in the HP Multifunction arena also appear to be plagued with problems so be very careful when looking at HP for your chosen solution especially in the inkjet world.

I've since gone for the slightly more expensive Canon MP780 which so far does exactly what you'd expect of these machines and does it very well, no installation issues, software provided is streets ahead of the poor effort released by HP.

So, potentially a good machine at a good price let down by substandard software which just didn't work for me and couldn't be fixed by HP support.

1-0 out of 5 stars Scanner failure
We bought two of these, they are both gathering dust as they both have "Scanner failure" at power on.Even if we don't want to use the scanner we can't print.

I have requested our IT department to avoid HP products where possible as there was no support, and a great raft of stuff on the web about this problem, but no easy solution.

The product is quite useless to us.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do NotBuy!
This machine was issued to me by my company for use at home.I wish I could take it back, but unfortunately I have no choice.

first, this printer uses A LOT of ink.It also shakes wildly when it prints - almost I would invision a cartoon printer to print.

The fax machine has no quickscan feature and the autofeeder has to be babysat each and every fax.

The scanner is alright, but the software is not too user friendly.

Allaround, there are much better products out there.If your company doesn't decide for you, stay away from this one!


1-0 out of 5 stars A problem from the start
I will make this short and not very sweet.Avoid this machine for the following reasons:

Scan never worked

Cannot be fully accessed through network without HP proprietary wireless card.

HP claims that Belkin wifi ports are not compatable with this machine.

Online support is nil

Double feeds pages

1-0 out of 5 stars MyHP1210 printer experience
Wanting a multifunction printer that was reasonally priced with photo quality features at the hundred dollar budget price cap I had at the time, led me to the 1210. Having done a web search on this printer yielded very little info to make a confident purchase decision, I went ahead and bought it at retail sale price. I was not dissapointed at the print quality, which is quite good when print is at best setting, with glossy type photo paper used. Although print speed at these settings could reach about 3 minutes for a full page printout, I can tolerate this but others may not. Now for the really good stuff. I have had this baby for about a year now, having already replaced the black print cartridge once but still using the tri-color cart. Sure the thoughtful software kindly reminded me 6 months ago that I should replace it, but ignored it and it still is going.
I mostly print out playlists,and regularly printout full color images that don't always take more than half page, and for most non photo printouts I engage FASTDRAFT mode, which is fast and uses a lot less color ink. Being dilligent about using FASTMODE I believe is the reason the ink has lasted so long because the printer defaults to NORMAL print mode after every print job. I think it is amazing the tricolor ink cart has lasted me this long, although I sense it going out any day now. Other than not having any photocard slots, this is a very nice second printer. And lastly, use your own judgement as to when to replace the ink.

3-0 out of 5 stars Slightly better than adequate
I've now had this printer for almost six months.It is not the main printer in my home, but it gets a fair amount of use.The copying function works very well.Scanning is a little too complicated, but also works well.Where the printer falls down is in paperfeed during printing.It will often (but inconsistently) grab too much paper and jam.This makes the machine very unreliable for large printing jobs when one might walk away from the printer, and irritating for shorter jobs that require a lot of refeeding to get one or two good pages out.

This does not happen often enough that I would advise somone not to buy the machine, but it does often enough that I would consider, if there is a better model, spending a bit more for something more reliable.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty nice little all in one!
I purchased this printer mainly for the copier as I greatly needed this function at home.Much to my delight, it also made very nice lab quality borderless 4x6 prints using the HP 4x6 photo paper with just the tri-color cartridge supplied!I have switched out trying the HP photo cartridge, which was even better w/my prints but not necessarily needed to get nice prints.

I can use other photo papers besides HP but you'll have to experiment to find out what is to your liking with the different papers.Not all papers reacted well with the HP ink and some of the other brand papers simply made the prints look "flat" while HP and Office Depot store brand photos papers worked very well for me.

I had absolutely no trouble installing this printer -- nor using it and the paper feeds very well, including the 4x6 photo stock. Just move the "arm" over to hold that size.

This printer has PictBridge which works beautifully, was very easy and a joy to use!It allowed me to print borderless 4x6 photos, crop, rotate and make adjustments.I have printed close to 40 borderless photo's so far, made lots of color copies, printed scans and still have a good amount of ink left in the cartridges that came with the printer.

I find that I need to use the color button for most of my copying needs.When I copy using the B/W command when there is anything more than text to copy, it will not look as nice as a copy using the color command, but that may not matter to you depending on what is being copied.

So far, I have not experienced any "cutting off" problems when copying.I find the color copies to be very good.I don't care as much to copy glossy photo's, they were okay on photo paper but then I would not want to use this printer strictly to copy nice photo's although I found that matte photo paper was more forgiving of that and compensated when making just photo copies of actual photo's.If I copied from a glossy 4x6 onto glossy photo paper, and even when I tried this on the demo's in store of same and higher quality models as well as different brand of all in one's that the copy just never was as nice as the original.This printer is a slow but print speed really hasn't been an issue for my home needs.I like the price of this printer so I can tolerate the slower speed.Besides, I can command numerous print jobs (one after the other) without problems and walk away.No jams or paper feed issues have happened.

Overall, this printer does exactly what it claims to do and I think is a bargain for the price.

Sometimes the cartridges get damaged. A damaged cartridge will give you a B/W print out or some other horrible variation of print that will never be right until you replace the damaged cartridge with a good one.I have had this happen in the past on one occasion.HP was super and replaced the damaged cartridge for me.I was very satisified with that gesture because I think that I was the one who unknowingly, accidentally damaged that cartridge!HP cartridges have the printheads built right into their cartridges, thus the higher cost. However, I prefer the printheads built in over the other which is why I tend to like HP printers although I do wish the ink was less expensive or more ink for your money.The newer, larger ink tank is limited to certain newer than this models and not even available in all the different cartridges and are not compatible with this model.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Printer I Ever Bought
If there were any piece of electronics I'd like to take back
20 years and show it to people in 1984, this would be it.
And only $85 ??

I bought the printer from Amazon and it arrived in 2 days.
I forgot to get the special printer cable, but while waiting for this I found that the copier function works right out of the box!

The copier is great. Just like a Xerox machine. Put the original in and hit the copy button (black or color) and the copy is printed out in about 30 seconds or so. The color is almost exactly like the original ! It is very hard to see any difference even on a very colorful photograph. A+. Even if you don't need a printer, buy this for a copier !

The printer replaced my $380 HP870CSE which finally refused to print clearly anymore. The 1210 prints just as quickly, perhaps quicker. The quality is A+. It is less noisy. I don't understand the reviews where people call it "clunky." Also, no paper jams
yet.

Another nice feature is the "cancel" button on the printer. Have you ever had your printer spew out pages of garbage that you couldn't stop ? Not this one. Just hit "cancel" and it stops instantly and ejects the page.

Yet another nice feature is that it doesn't turn on when power comes up. So if you turn on your computer system power and you don't want to print, it just stays off. They've thought of all my pet peeves about printers.

My only complaint is that the instruction manual is extremely abbreviated. For example, how to modify scanner files is left to a sofware "help" sectionwhich is all broken up. They should spend the money on a 100 page detailed printed manual.

This thing does everything but FAX . I notice they have more expensive models that also FAX, so some might consider these.

I'm an Engineer, and if any HP guys are reading this : Congratulations on a great design !

3-0 out of 5 stars Good value
I found this combo refurbished machine in OM, (...). I realized that there was a better deal for this machine at (...) after all rebates in June, well, I missed out but I still think this is a good value.

For the printer function, I give it 4 stars. Print quality is good. User can default a draft mode for printing documents, which can save substantial ink. However, this machine sometimes has paper jam problem: to prevent paper jam and waste of ink, I need to feed in page by page for printing. This is fine for me as I don't print a lot.

For copying function, I give it 4 stars. The copying function is pretty good. Without using your PC, you can make copies directly from the machine. [They provide 2 jelly bean style copy buttons (color or b/w) on the machine]. However, the scan head seems getting noisy (higher pitch noise) after 50+ times usage.

For scan function, I give it 2.5 stars. Other than the aforementioned scan head issue, the scanning speed is pretty slow.

For the quality of scanned image, I tried to scan a color magazine page with 100dpi and 300dpi, the 300dpi output had a lot of rough lines, while the quality of 100 dpi output looked a little bit better than the 300 dpi output but a bit blur.

For Scan to document feature, it took me over 40 secs to complete scanning a b/w document. This 40+ secs included the scanner software launch -> pre-scan ->scan preview -> document scan -> document translation to .doc file. Moreover, the document recognition program in HP software is doing a mediocre job in translation.

- 1st, it cannot recognize check box / radio box in a document, and you will find weird symbol in your output word document.

- 2nd, before using "scan to document" feature, make sure your document is printed on fine quality paper. I tried to scan a page in my Princeton GMAT book (which is print on rougher paper). The quality of scanned output in .doc file was really lousy. I got a bunch of weird symbols in the output .doc file.

For HP software, the installation program is pretty buggy. After "successful" installation claimed by HP wizard, launching the HP director program only showed 2 icons instead of 5. Fortunately, I went to HP support web right away and troubleshooted the issue by copying missing folders from CD to my PC.

All in all, this machine is really cute and neat, given its all-in-one functionalities, it is especially good value for non-frequent/home/budget users. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Scanner, So-So On OS X
This scanner is a great value for the price.Excellent resolution, fairly quick scans.I have to agree in saying there is quite a bit to install intially, but not that bad overall.Epson scanners I have installed have had nearly the same amount of software.The software seems to lock up every once in a while on my PowerBook G4 1.33 Ghz running Mac OS 10.3.8(if anyone has any tips about that let me know), but runs great on my Windows XP Home SP1 machine.Overall probably the best quality scanner for the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good scanner, but ICE is a disappointment
I'm a long-time user of Microtek scanners, and have generally found that even their low end products are reliable and deliver great results.

The i320 installed and worked without a hitch when attached to a new Athlon-based PC running Windows XP Home Edition, and I immediately started testing it using a high quality 8x10 photograph. One issue I encountered right off is that the quality of scans was inferior to that of my previous scanner, a Microtek 3600. After working with the i320 for a while, I discovered what I think is the reason. This model, like most current scanners, has a very high hardware resolution - 3200dpi. My older scanner has a hardware resolution of 600dpi. One frequently overlooked fact about this increased resolution is that the much smaller size of today's sensors makes them a lot more vulnerable to optical noise, which degrades image quality. (And by the way, that higher resolution is of no value when scanning photographs, since most photo detail can be resolved at 300dpi.)

I found that I was able to get the scanner to behave more like a 600dpi model by using the Descreen option in the ScanWizard software. (Try setting it between 100 and 200lpi). This cleaned up the noise dramatically, and I was happy.

What I was not so happy about is the Digital ICE feature. This is a proven technology that has been employed in high end film scanners with great success. I don't know how successfully it's been used in flatbed scanners, but my tests with the i320 were not impressive. I tried numerous variations of scan resolution and ICE settings on some old photos, both color and B&W. In no case did the ICE function ever clean up even one speck of dust or debris on any of my photos. It did help a bit in correcting physical damage such as wrinkles or tears, but I frankly have very few photos in such bad condition.

Aside from the extra cost in dollars that the ICE function adds to the scanner, it also costs a lot in time. Scans with ICE enabled are sloooooow! You'll have to wait several minutes while the scanner does nothing at all except display a message about warming up. This happens with each and every scan - how warm does it need to be? Unless you have a shoebox full of mangled photos, I can't see this implementation of Digital ICE being worthwhile.

Another minor disappointment was the ColoRescue feature. This is supposed to restore proper colors to faded photos, but in my tests it usually produced silly, garish results. I found it preferable to scan without it and fix the colors in Photoshop.

Bottom line - this is a perfectly fine scanner. However, it probably won't produce great results with the default settings. You'll have to explore the intricacies of the ScanWizard software (which, by the way, is one of the best scanner control programs out there and is the main reason why I continue to buy Microtek stuff). And it won't clean up dust and debris on photos. Consider saving a few bucks by getting the Microtek 6000 without Digital ICE, or instead spend more on one of the higher end models where the ICE function might really work!

2-0 out of 5 stars Installation Hell
I got this scanner for its features and based on the reputation Microtek has in the professional imaging arena, where they are a major player. It was to replace my old HP scanner that is slow and whose quality is no longer up to snuff.
After unpacking the scanner, I followed the installation instructions, which are basically install the software, restart and connect the scanner - and suddenly I was back in the dark ages of Windows 95. Eithr using a USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 just failed to work with the scanner. Especially bad is the fact that the computer actually did detect the scanner but Microtek's scanner detection software refused to agree. Even when it did find it, it would hang and the scanner remained unusable.
After disconnecting all Firewire and USB devices, the scanner was finally detected by the software when it was the sole device connected to a USB 1.1 port. Then it was really fast and finally showed its promise.
Now it is back in the box and on the way back to the store. Microtek better wake up and discover that hardware these days does install plug-n-play. HP may build inferior products, but they work. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Software, don't buy
I purchased that scanner to finally convert my slides to jpeg pictures. It took me over 4 hours to scan only 40 pictures. Why? Because the software was constantly hanging after the second slide. I had to reboot the PC after 2-3 scans. The problem is the driver software called CyberView X-FX.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buying from store where returns are easy
After reading these reviews it is clear that the positive ones are a bunch of BS from employees and the negative ones are consumers who have lost money and faith in both the manufacturer and Amazon for allowing this product on their website.

Anyways.. both Best Buy and Staples sell this item and currently Staples is selling it for 99 bucks.I'm buying it knowing that it will most likely fail, however, the more expensive units also seem to fail so I'm starting small.

I no longer buy netgear products because of customer service problems but I'll at least give Pacific Image a chance to help with tech support if it is needed.As for it not working, trust me, I'm keeping the box in good shape.Hopefully I can get thru my project and return it before it breaks.

I love Amazon and would have probably bought it from here if the reviews were better, but as for returns, store bought is so much easier and cheaper. Look out Staples.

1-0 out of 5 stars DONT BUY IT
i had the same problem as others with this scanner. i used it for a few days and it worked great. i went to use it again a few weeks later and nothing. I manged to get a new one over the weekend and just plugged it in this am and it burned out. No more items from this company for me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Inappropriate Review Below!!!
It's always galling when a product has poor reviews exclusively and a guest reviewer shows up proclaiming the company's virtue as only an employee can. It's obvious Pacific Image sent someone over to perform a weak attempt at spin after so many disappointing customer comments.

DON'T BELIEVE THEM!!! This product is poor quality compounded with weak customer support. It's ironic that all of the reviews complain about the service yet the company clearly has time to counter opinions they don't like in a poorly composed anonymous review. That employee could have been helping one of these poor people!

Nikon and Minolta are two reputable companies in this field - Pacific Image is not.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reply to Customer Support issues
When customers call their support department reporting hardware failure and the unit is within it's one year warranty period the unit may be sent in for repair/replacement under such warranty, I am not sure who some of these customers contacted for assistance but Pacific Image stands behind their products, it is unfortunate that such miss communications cause bad reputations for particular products and companies. I was helped in a timely and professional manner. I would definitely buy their products in the future. ... Read more
