Pros:Like HP likes to say, Faster, Easier, Better
Cons:None that I can think of
I decided to step into the home publishing / digital imaging age with the Hewlett-Packard 4200Cse scanner.
I did my homework, read reviews, asked questions, researched turnover rates and decided that the HP4200 was best for me.
Even though it has 36Bit color and 600X1200DPI resolution, the human eye can't see more then 16Bit, and true photo quality is 300DPI.
From in the box, I had this up and running in less than 20 minutes, the PnP USB port needed the software to be loaded first, but then it was all up and running.
The one touch scanning feature with single pass scanning technology makes this one of the easiest scanners to use today.
It came with Adobe PhotoDelux, Home Edition and a few other small titles, good software for a starter.
Extra "stuff" needed: USB Hub (keep expandability) ($20-$75), Possible linger USB cord (it comes with a 6' cord)(don't get an extension cord! a good 10 foot) ($25-$30)
Additional suggestions: Adobe PhotoDelux Business Edition ($50), A good photo printing printer ($200+), Microsoft Publisher ($100), Hp Photo Printing software (only available with HP's PhotoSmart line), photo paper (for final results, make it match the brand of your printer).
