    Pros: good quality(HP!)/ easy2use/
    Cons: slow

    Summary: This scanner works great if you want to convert your 35mm or slides to digital formats. It is a little bit slow - so expect to spend some time (while watching TV for example) to feed it from time to time with the next slides (if you want to convert ... read more

    Pros: Image Quality
    Cons: Speed

    Summary: I'm a relatively serious hobby photographer, and I enjoy shooting slide film, and often use a local custom lab to print my work on a digital optical photographic printer. The output from this scanner provides large, high-resolution files that are perfect ... read more

  • Great buy for specific applications. Not for everyone.

    Pros: Ease of use. Space saver compared to flat bed scanners. True picture quality from pictures direct or negatives.
    Cons: Doesn't take any other size negative like the old box type B&W that I also have.

    Summary: I would recommend this product to anyone who has a large amount of 35mm photographs they wish to either scan onto CD's or to scan in to touch up with Photoshop. I am the owner of the previous version which is the HP 5100 and I bought it to scan and ... read more

  • Could use a better dynamic range, better shadow detail

    Aug 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: User friendly scanner that usually produces good results
    Cons: Limited dynamic range

    Summary: I could talk about how this scanner has a limited dynamic range and poor shadow detail. But I love this scanner for several reasons despite its flaws: First, the scanner is very intuitive and user friendly. I have tried other scanners that are aimed ... read more

  • Smooth Scanning

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast; Scans Negatives, Slides, and Pictures; Full Color; Great Quality
    Cons: Not a Flatbed Scanner.

    Summary: I originally purchased the Hewlett Packard Photosmart Photo scanner from Best Buys around January 1998. The scanner scans at higher quality than any other scanner available (still!). The software it uses to scan images is great and simple; it is the ... read more

  • HP PhotoSmart S20 - not for everyone

    Apr 24, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: scans 35mm slides and negatives at a price lower than some film scanners
    Cons: low quality print scans (only up to 300dpi) and high priced compared to other flat bed scanners that may have options for 35mm scanning

    Summary: I recently purchased this scanner when my old Kodak PhotoDoc scanner was no longer compatible with my new PC running Windows 98. Plus I was looking for the ability to scan 35mm slides. I must say I'm very disappointed in the quality of the ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: image quality
    Cons: slow

    Summary: The PhotoSmart S20 is a well built film and photo scanner offering maximum versatility and moderate price, and at a somewhat slow performance. This is a recommended item for professionals investing in a film scanner for the first time. The ... read more

  • Super quality negative scans? This scanner can't be beat!

    Feb 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Superb, uncompromising quality photo scans.
    Cons: A bit finicky negative auto feed.

    Summary: Photosmart Scanner by HP is a sure winner! Being an Epson fan, I was reluctant to buy the HP scanner. The only reason I bought it was because an Epson scanner was not available at my local store. Boy, am I glad I discovered the Photosmart. I am a ... read more

  • Avoid this scanner if you care about quality and reliability

    Pros: Looks nice from outside, otherwise I can't find any.
    Cons: Poor quality, not reliable (software), slow, no updates to software to fix bugs.

    Summary: I've had this scanner for a few years now and have been mostly unhappy with it. The software often cannot find the scanner until I switch it to another USB port. The files are often being saved of a smaller (1/3) than expected size and resolution based ... read more
