HP Scanjet G4050 (L1957A#B1H) Up to 4800 x 9600 dpi USB Flatbed Scanner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I placed the order with Newegg at 8:00PM and the G4050 arrived at my door at 10:00 AM the next day! That's impressive !

I had to download the software bundle from HP's site as the CD's that came with the unit were for XP and Vista (I am running Win 7).

The installation was a breeze and everything was up and running in 5 minutes.

I am using the scanner to digitize my 35mm slides that I have accumilated over the years. I discovered that the majority of the slides had faded over time but the software had a check box to correct this and it did a good job. The speed for processing 16 slides at 300 DPI on my setup is about 10 minutes, which is not bad considering what it has to do. The results are as I expected and, as I don't intend to print enlargements, 300 DPI is sufficient, I tried higher resolutions but apart from taking longer to process the results were similar, probably because the originals were not super crisp.

Cons: None yet, but I have more experimenting to do with color negatives
