Customer ratings and reviews for HP Scanjet G4050 Photo Scanner

Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible windows software. No linux support. This scanner has a great potential, but the software shipped with it is simply unacceptable. It renders the whole scanner useless, unless you happen to be happy with the decisions the software makes for you. Note that it doesn't support black and white negatives!!! It's also extremely big and slow. If you are looking at some professional negative or positive scanning, you will have to invest another $40 in software. Last, I must say that it is unbelievable to see that, today, in the year 2009, there are still scanners that don't support Linux. March 10, 2009
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't Buy This Product This scanner is basically unusable. It takes 1hr to scan an set of 30 negatives at 300 dpi. It seems to sit in one place forever going back and forth. Scanning one 2x4 BW negative at 200 dpi took 10 minutes. There appears to be no way to tell the scanner that its scanning a BW negative. As a result the photo often comes out in red shade. And then the photo has lines in it, not scratches, but vertical columns of off colors. Based on this one experience I'll never buy another HP product. February 24, 2009
