  • HP 3200 Scanner - BUYER BEWARE!

    Jun 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It worked fine for about 10 scans.
    Cons: If you have any problems, you are up the creek.

    Summary: This is the big DEAL scanner right now. Some folks ended up getting it for free with discounts online plus the mail in rebate. Mine ran about $10 (not counting the phone call and mailing the thing back). Apparently, too many 3200 were made and ... read more

    Pros: Low cost, easy to use
    Cons: Bulky, poor tech support, scanning bulb always on

  • Oh, Where Oh Where Has My Scanner Gone?

    Mar 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great - when it works
    Cons: No off switch. Has to be turned off through the program to ever work again.

    Summary: 8-22-2 update: OK, I was wrong. What I should have done was to click into the "File" area of the scanner program, then click "Exit" when I was done scanning. There is no "off" switch on the scanner, so I thought, wrongly, that just turning off the ... read more

    Pros: Large enough area you can scan, reliabilty, clear images, good value
    Cons: .gif images are poor quality, can be confusing to use

    Summary: When it comes to scanners under $110, the HP scanjet 3200C rocks. It is simple to use and produces clear images when in .jpg format. In .gif format it produces very grainy, fuzzy images. My only beef with this scanner is that it produces ... read more

    Pros: good quality scans, fast, easy to use
    Cons: Scanned pictures can have streaks on them if it is the first scan of the day. No USB port

    Summary: We bought the HP 3200 for our office about a year ago. I have used other scanners in the past like Mustek and Microtek, but the HP ScanJet has them beat in this price class. The HP 3200C is simple to install and even easier to use. It's quick and the ... read more

    Pros: Value
    Cons: Slow and noisy.

    Summary: I purchased this scanner mainly because of the price: $33 at Staples.com when they had it on sale + coupon. I don't scan often, so this was a very good choice for me. But those who are looking to scan more often or are impatient, then I suggest you ... read more

    Pros: not any
    Cons: Don't buy this piece of hardware

    Pros: It is inexpensive.
    Cons: no quality, os conflicts, no on/off switch

    Summary: Granted, this HP scanner is inexpensive. In fact it is well priced! However, you must ask yourself if it is worth the trouble! First, the scanner isn't that great of quality. Sure, it is decent for the price, but with today's ... read more
