Customer ratings and reviews for HP Scanjet 5590 Digital Flatbed Scanner

Rated 5 out of 5 by Workhorse I have been using this scanner at my office for three years now and it is a great deal for the money. It performs consistently and reliably. The interface is very straight forward. The document feeder works great too and is a big time saver from having to hand feed multi-page or multi-sided documents. I recommend this scanner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OCR Scanning Overall it is a great product, but was not designed for the office environment where a large number of documents (100+) are scanned daily. The feeder is where the wear and tear problem lies. We have had one for 3 months and have already replaced the whole top feeder unit and are looking to replace that again soon. August 3, 2007
Rated 3 out of 5 by fine, except for automatic document feeder I purchased this scanner because of the automatic document feeder. I have used it a lot since then, and find there are good and bad points about this scanner. I only use it for scanning documents into pdf files, and haven't tried any of the other features it has. Good points: It was easily the cheapest scanner with a document feeder. Bad points: The automatic document feeder is not reliable. It will usually work fine if you are scanning in 2 or 3 pages, but if you scan in more (say 5 to 10 pages), almost certainly one of the pages will not feed correctly. What happens is that the feeder grabs another page before the first page is finished scanning, and as a result, you do not get the full scan of some of the pages. I have found that the only way to reliably prevent this is to hold the papers not being fed with my fingers until it is time for the top one to be picked up, which provides enough tension so that the feeder does not pick it up and pull it into the scanner early. Of course, this means the document feeder is not automatic, but it is still faster than placing the pages one at a time on the glass. Another, more minor, problem is that occasionally the buttons on the scanner do not trigger the automatic software provided. I do not know if this is the scanner or the software, but this is not as problematic as the document feeder problems. Overall, if you need a scanner with an automatic document feeder, I would recommend you investigate other scanners. April 25, 2007
Rated 4 out of 5 by two years and counting I purchased this scanned about two years ago and it has overall been great. Easy to use, good work flow. Occasionally the unit will not function and needs to be unplugged and replugged in to clear the software error, but overall, it has been a terrific product to work with. Good software packages as well. We use it to scan in medical forms or explanations and insurance cards. It does this quite well and occasionally need it for other things. As with most auto feed products, you will occasionally get a paper jam. These are easily cleared. The duplex function works well too. April 20, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scan Jet 5590 a must Have scanner Hello, I purchased the scanjet 5590 scanner because it works with windows vista 64 bit edition. I have had other scanners before and thought nothing of it, other then it would work with my new operating system. But boy what a delightfull surprise I received once I got to know this machine. The way it scans is short of amazing. I just insert the paper into the paper feeder and it scans both sides without any problems. No more loading one sheet at a time and hoping everthing merges correctly. And when I want to scan a picture or magazine I just lift the lid and place it on the flatbed part of the scanner and its done. The resolution is good and it is a snap to use. If a time ever comes when this scanner must be replaced I will definetely be looking for what ever HP replaces this model with. I can't recommend this scanner enough. You just half to try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A great scanner This has been such an excellent scanner. The installation was a snap and it worked right off with no problems whatsoever. It works well with all of my programs to import scanned photos. It also is a great copier - with a push of a button on the front panel it sends a copy directly to my printer quickly and easily. The sheet feeder is very handy - and lo and behold, it actually does scan my negatives into pictures on my computer. Love this scanner! I have owned it for nearly a year, and have given it plenty of use to know how good it is. April 19, 2007
