          This scanner jams A LOT and the jams are very hard to release. It also does not save pages that have scanned before the scanner jammed. Frustrated with this scanner!

            Comments about HP Scanjet 5590 Digital Flatbed Scanner:

            I have had many problems with the auto document feeder jamming. It actually became worse than better. When it jams the scanner does not save the previous pages scanned.

            Also Jams are very hard to clear when they jam on the outbound side.

            The software brought my mac to a near standstill since the installation even when it is not running.

              The document feeder failed right out of the box. I have worked on office equipment for 40 years as a repairman. I work on document feeders every day. This is a lousy feeder. I sent it back and ordered a different brand that works 100% better and faster. Also makes cleaner scanned documents. I am very pleased with EPSON I purchased from B&H. NO problem from B&H about the return.

              The product is easy to use once you inatall both disc, it is a little noisy, but scans goo and has easy to use "tweaks" for the scan items,eg slides that have faded.

              It does what I want with the TWAIN driver. I use an add-on for Outlook to scan from its feeder directly attaching the PDF to an email. My client loves the simplicity.

              Button decals are missing from the package. I had to call HP tech support to get them sent.

                Not easy to use on Mac's. Gives OCR error message when scanning documents. Cannot save as a .rtf file so the file can be re-saved as a .doc file. The best thing about this scanner is the Auto Doc Scan capability.
