This review is from: Hewlett Packard N6310 Document Flatbed Scanner
Pros: It gives you an ADF and a flatbed all in one. The option to load ONLY the drive and not all the other software is great. The system plugged right up out of the box and I was scanning to Acrobat 8.0 pro in minutes.
Cons: I didn't load any of the software becuase I scan straight to Acrobat 8 Pro. The WIA driver is horrible! The software will only come up every other time. The TWAIN driver is the only way to scan with the ADF and even then the default is set to a legal (8.5 x 14) sheet. The only way to change it is to go into the driver and several mouse clicks later change the page size. But then you can not save the setting, so for EVERY job you have to change the legal size to letter size.
So if you are going to set up bunch of scan jobs, then you can run through them. But if you scan from time to time, each time you close Acrobat you lose all the settings!
Other Thoughts: I only purchased this scanner for the ADF. I have other specialized scanners for photos, and another for 35mm slides and negatives.
After having this propblem, I looked up the issue an sure enough, there are MANY people unhappy with this scanner all the way back to 2009! Why oh why did I buy this?!?

Pros: I purchased this because I need to move my entertainment computer to a wall with no hard wire network. I got it as a daily special for less than $18. The drivers installed with easy and I plugged it into the USB in the back of the computer. Unfortunately, I got a very low signal strength. I am only 40 feet from my wireless switch with 5 walls and a refrigerator in the line of sight. I moved the dongle to a front port on the case and the signal strength is booming! I have a 1.5Mbps DSL connection and I have no problem watching hulu, netflix, or CBS HD on my 40 inch LCD.
Cons: I found the Roswell Wireless Utility a bit confusing to use. Once I got my wireless switch added to the profile I had a much better time. Before adding the connection to my profile, I had to reconnect a type in the security info every time I rebooted the computer.READ FULL REVIEW
