I like it!!
By Gordy Good GuyVerified Reviewer from Pleasant Hill, CA on 10/8/2009
Pros:
Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Resolution
Cons:
Slow
Best Uses:
Home, Photos and Graphics
Describe Yourself:
Casual User
Primary use:
Personal
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I replaced an HP6100C. This 8300 is far superior. It has more features and is easy to use. Never could scan slides with the 6100 but this one makes it a snap. Some have complained that is hard to set up. I have average ability and the 8300 was installed without a hitch (except I temporarily forgot to reboot after installation of the software). I was scanning in less than an hour after the scanner was delivered. Some have complained that the scanner is slow. Clearly it is not for professionals. But for the home user with average needs, it does it all.

 
Great Improvement Over the 6300 Unit
By Capre Fear SailorVerified Purchaser from Wilmington, NC on 3/3/2009
Pros:
Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Cons:
Poor Software
Best Uses:
Photos and Graphics, Publishing
Describe Yourself:
Frequent User
Primary use:
Personal
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use this scanner, without the feeder, for personal and business purposes: mainly, for scanning photos, drawings and contracts. It is easy to use and fast compared to the 6300 version that preceeded it. The slide and negative scanning features are O.K. if you have a limited number of things to scan. Otherwise, it is too slow and cumbersome. The software that came with mine did not work and I was forced to go online to HP to download new drivers. Within a week, they upgraded the drivers and the unit stopped working. It took a while to discover that I needed to download new drivers to restore function: an annoying feature of the HP Total Care auto upgrade feature.

 
Totally Worthless
By SimrnVerified Reviewer from CA on 10/15/2008
Cons:
Difficult Setup, Inaccurate Scans, Poor Software
Describe Yourself:
Frequent User
Primary use:
Personal
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have faced lots of issues since I purchased this scanner. I purchased two of them. The Transparency Adapter was wrecked on both and had to be swapped. It also caused some trouble communicating with my PC. It will be running along flawlessly, and subsequently I given the next scanning command and it reports: "Scanner not found." It doesn't expand negatives. Slides spit out hazily and unreadable. Totally Worthless!

 
Weak performer
By Tech EnthusiastVerified Reviewer from NY on 10/13/2008
Pros:
Accurate Color
Cons:
Poor Software
Best Uses:
Photos and Graphics
Describe Yourself:
Casual User
Primary use:

Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The results obtained with this machine are not really very good and consistent. I have owned a number of scanners and this is not the best by far. HP has poor customer service. No matter what I do, the pictures sometimes come out with dust, scratches and it would take me along time to clean up. HP has developed programming which is awkward, confusing and unstable. My advice to the manufacturer: send it back to square one. After I received some replacement parts, everything worked a little better, but still not great.

 
Good Scanner
By ShawnaVerified Reviewer from Denver, CO on 10/13/2008
Pros:
Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Excellent Software, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible, Works on Network
Cons:
Slow
Best Uses:
Photos and Graphics, Publishing
Describe Yourself:
Frequent User
Primary use:
Business
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Our office really hadn't had much of a need to scan things until recently. My boss saw no reason to get an all-in-one when we already had equipment for printing & faxing, so we got this. It has been a really excellent solution for our office. We are able to do our large scans, and not have it cut across normal printing or faxing that is being done. It goes slower than we like, but we are getting terrific quality, and it is very easy to use. It's a big plus!
