Customer ratings and reviews for HP Scanjet 5590 Digital Flatbed Scanner

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5590 I am facing a one problem in scanner 5590. (I am face hang problem, some time lump hang after 5 sheets and some time hang continuesly 2 and 4 time, so that i do) September 24, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Price and Performance I have scanned tens of thousands of pages with this scanner, and it has never failed me. Yes, I have had an occasional paper jam, but this was almost always my fault (forgot to remove a staple or loaded the ADF with an original in poor condition). And the price is excellent for such an high performing machine. I bought a second one (my project is huge and I have to live abroad at times) thinking that a low cost machine would fail or be damaged in transit. I have never used the second one. The first seems indestructilble. September 12, 2009
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good for small loads of work Our agency bought individual hp 5590 scanner for each employee's desk top about 3 months ago. The scanner is fine if you only use it for for occasional scanning. If you scan 3 page documents continuously for more than 20 minutes or less, the scanner jams up. It eats the document and will end up destroying some valuable documents you may not have an extra copy of. I would only recommend this scanner if it is to be used for occasional scanning. If not, please don't even think about buying it, because you will only end up frustrating yourself with the jams and chews of documents. March 19, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I have had my scanner for about three years now. I love it!!! All you have to remember is that when it "hick-ups" and no image appears, is to unplug the power....wait 5-10 seconds and plug it back in. This very seldom happens, but that's the remedy. The reason I found this "Write a Review" section is that I'm looking to purchase another one for another location. I have been putting my scanner in a suitcase and transporting it back and forth in my car to and from North Carolina and Florida for the past two years. And all I have to do is plug it in and it works! March 12, 2008
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed We should have purchased a better scanner. This thing jams and is very slow. The image quality is fair. Text comes out as .tif and would be better in .pdf. January 8, 2008
Rated 2 out of 5 by The sold me a bill of goods I bought the 5590 expecting it to scan (and copy) 8.5x14 (legal) documents just like the ad said it would. Does it? Not really. It will scan a legal sheet ONLY through the document feeder. The glass flatbed will only handle documents 8.5x12. Plus, it can't scan legal-size documents double-sided at all. Also, print quality is not very good for an advanced-generation maching. December 14, 2007
