Solid, reliable scanner

I have had one of these for a long time. Provided you keep up to date with the drivers and software, it is a very dependable scanner. I have scanned 35 mm slides with it, and negatives. the results have been good. I wouldn't go out and buy a different scanner until this one ceases to work.






Great for photos

Great for making digtal copies of my old photos so that I can upload them to Facebook.

Good Hardware, Bad Software

Have owned a G4010 for about 3 years. Hardware has been reliable throughout. Software and support is another story. Recently upgraded to a 64 bit Win7 machine and downloaded new drivers and software for my G4010. New software ver 13.0 is the only compatible software but HP have removed one of the key features of the old software ver8.0. That is the save profiles feature. Now if you are scanning many images and want the same dimensions, scale, resolution, light/dark, sharpening you have to set up each image individually! A complete timewaster. And their old ver. 8 software is not compatible with Win7.

it just works

At first I used the CD supplied to install the software. I also checked the web-site for updates. What was a bit confusing was the change in the names and numbering between the software on the CD and web-site. So I went by release date. So I uninstalled the CD software and installed just the drivers for the scanner, everything works fine. Both the drivers and the ancillary software worked fine. I just need to scan. Everything else can be done using software that I already own in professional versions.

Good Purchase Scanjet G4010

I am running Windows 7 64bit. Purchased the scanner this week. Ignored the software / driver installation disks supplied with the scanner which are for earlier OS. Downloaded the latest software and drivers from the HP site. Scanner and support software working well with no problems. Fully satisfied with the product.
