    Jun 3, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy setup. Easy to use. Makes great copies.
    Cons: No on/off switch.

    Summary: This scanner was made to be used with PC's with Win98 and USB port. There is an update for Win2000 Pro. You can find it here... http://www.hp.com/cposupport/swindexes/hpscanjet49528_swen.html After reading a few Epinions, I decided to ... read more

  • You get what you pay for

    Nov 2, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, USB, decent resolution
    Cons: Installation requires updates from hp.com to run on WinXP. Still very flaky.

    Summary: I purchased this model (Scanjet 4200C) a couple of years ago for about $150. Installation seemed to work ok in Win98, but the lamp wouldn't turn off. Even after downloading the lamp update patch from HP's website, the lamp still didn't turn off. And ... read more

  • Total piece of garbage

    Oct 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Worked when it felt like it. Picture quality was OK.
    Cons: Unreliable software. Causes blue screens. Support is terrible. Patches didn't work, either.

    Summary: This scanner used to work OK on both my old Pentium II and now my Pentium IV. I have a Intel D845GBV motherboard. I use Windows 98SE. Bottom line is this scanner never worked right from day one. Even after loading the lamp patch the light still sta ... read more

    Jan 25, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very affordable, easy to install and use.
    Cons: limited with system compatibility and for very basic usage.

    Summary: HP ScanJet 4200Cxi Basic Scanning 101. The Hewlett Packard ScanJet 4200Cxi scanner was on sale, actually it was like a liquidation sale. It was being offered at $80.00 plus taxes. There but only a few units left in the store, I ... read more

  • Good Scanner

    Dec 7, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, fairly good quality and seems well built.
    Cons: Has native XP support, but HP's downloadable drivers are much better.

    Summary: Have no complaints at all about this scanner. For the price I highly recommend it. HP has always sold pretty reliable equipment, maybe not the highest in visual quality, but usually pretty rugged. The only trouble was that Windows XP's default drivers ... read more

  • HP ScanJet - Big Time Disappointment

    May 23, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reasonable price. Easy install. Simple features. Great quality for the two weeks it lasted.
    Cons: Unreliable hardware. Dismal support. Worked 2-4 weeks two years ago and has not worked since.

    Summary: What a great looking device....goes to show you how we, as consumers, make our purchases. Actually, this device was a gift to me from my older son--more than 2 years ago. I was so moved by his generosity because I had my eyes on an HP scanner and this ... read more

  • Great Scanner!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Scan and Scan program!
    Cons: Space and wires it takes.

    Summary: The Hewlett Packard ScanJet 4200C is a great scanner for the person w/ limited scanning needs. I have never had to scan in anything very large so this has never been trouble for me. It is about medium size as scanners go. It has three convenient ... read more

    Jul 30, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good quality, easy to use software, USB
    Cons: Software controlled power save - sometimes have to unplug

    Summary: I bought this scanner about a year and a half ago from Staples. Cost me $200 but i'm sure now days you can get it for half price. Software is easy to install, and it links nicely with PhotoShop. Great quality of pictures, recognizes the ... read more

    Pros: NONE
    Cons: CUSTOMER CARE AND SERVICE SUCKS

    Summary: WHEN I PURCHASED THE SCANNER I CALLED HP AND TOLD THEM THE LIGHT NEVER GOES OUT, THEY TOLD ME IF IT WORKS DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT. 8 MONTHS LATER THE LIGHT WENT OUT AND HP TOLD ME I SHOULD OF LOADED A PATCH WHEN THE SCANNER WAS NEW THAT TURNED THE LIGHT OFF ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Image quality is nice and sharp
    Cons: A bit bigger than most

    Summary: HP is well known for their quality printers, and their scanners are right up there, too. The ScanJet 4200Cse is a full-featured flatbed scanner that is worthy of wearing the Hewlett-Packard name. Besides the scanner itself, also included are a ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Wonderful quality scanning.
    Cons: Can't shut it off.

    Summary: When we bought our new computer a couple of years ago, they had a great deal going with scanner and printer included. When I saw what the scanner could do, I "needed it" (I could probably live without it, but it wouldn't be as fun). This is ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It scans beautifully every time!
    Cons: Will not scan negatives.

    Summary: The HP ScanJet 4200Cse is a great scanner for the home use. The 4200C comes in three different packages, (C, Cse & Cxi) the only difference in them is the software that is included. This review will be on the 4200Cse that I ended up with from my Father, ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Perfect size! Easy to use.
    Cons: No on/off switch

    Summary: Just three buttons on the scanner does it all! I love the idea of the buttons on the scanner. I use it more because of this feature. I have a scanner at work that does not have this feature and I find that I don't use it as often. It is fast and ... read more

    Pros: Easy to setup and use, image quality.
    Cons: A little smaller scanning area than my previous scanner.

    Summary: I had owned my old and trusty HP 5p for a couple of years when in 1999, it came time to upgrade. It turned out that when I bought my Zip drive and it caused a conflict with my 5p's SCSI card and would cause my computer to lock up, so a trip to Staple, ... read more

    Pros: Superb Quality, Unbeatable Value
    Cons: None, this product is outstanding

    Summary: I was once a foolish boy, who thought that I could get away with purchasing a budget MicroTek scanner, for $49 and get ultra high quality scans. Who was I kidding? Only myself. It took a short time for me to realize I needed to toss my MicroTek and ... read more
