  • Excellent scans, especially of very saturated originals; very nice industrial design.
  • Only supports sRGB color space; random color registration problems on slide scans; weak driver; many operations are very slow.
  • The HP Scanjet G4050 is a solid scanner that could use a driver overhaul and a better means of handling slides.
