Customer ratings and reviews for HP Scanjet G4050 Photo Scanner

Rated 5 out of 5 by Worked beyond expectation I purchased this scanner to scan old slides and negatives. Many of my slides were larger than what this scanner was set up to scan and HP made no guarantees that it would work for what I needed. I just placed the slides on the glass with no tray and it worked just fine. June 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by second time around was perfect I have used a HP 5370C scanner for years. I had to get a new computer and had XP mode installed on it so I could use my scanner. No go. About 6 months prior I had ordered and recieved a G4050, it sounded wonderful. I scan a lot of negatives and slides. It wouldn't work. It would scan a photo but it looked muddy and indistinct. I bought another installation cd per advice online, it didn't help a bit. HP cheerfully refunded my money and even sent UPS to pick it up from my house. That surprised me. I decided to try it again with my NEW computer windows7 and bought another G4050. I am delighted with it. I can edit anything I scan and save it however I please. The scan results are clear and sharp. I give this scanner a big plus. Now I don't mourn the loss of my 5370C. June 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality This scanner was a fabulous buy. The quality of the photo scans far exceeded my expectations. June 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Getting Use To Just getting familiar with, so far so good May 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by THIS PRODUCT IS THE BEST THIS PRODUCT IS THE BEST FOR SCANNING SLIDES AND PHOTOS THAT I HAVE FOUND ANYWHERE. I BOUGHT SEVERAL TYPES FROM OTHER STORES AND RETURNED BEFORE I FOUND THIS ONE. THANKS. May 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product met all my expectations. I needed a scanner to archive a lot of family photos and this scanner is a real time saver. It performs perfectly with my Adobe Photo Elements software and was able to scan multiple pictures of various sizes on the glass at one time. This alone saved me so much time. Most of the time the scanner was able to select the photos without adjusting the selection frames. I am so glad I bought this scanner. May 2, 2013
