HP Scanjet G3110 Photo Scanner
Mediocre at best

Instrument extremely slow in all functions-start-up included. Does a lousy job with slides-an aceptable job with documents. Is unreliable in that it constantly requires re-tuning. I am going to replace this unit as soon as I can pin down another that will meet my needs and standards.

I purchased this unit primarily to scan slides. It does an extremely poor job on that end. Scanned product is too poor to use. Documents, it does a pretty good job on. Also is very slow and has a tendency to get out of whack that requires a re-installation to straighten out. I am very disappointed in this product. I expected better-especially considering HP's write-up when it came on the market.
