The HP Scanjet G4050 is a solid scanner that could use a driver overhaul and a better means of handling slides.
At CES 2007, we take a look at the HP Scanjet G4050. This scanner uses a double-pass technique with two light sources, making scan look appear very similar to the original.
HP's Scanjet 4670 is a must-have for those who want unique and stylish hardware. If you're OK with mundane, though, stick with the Epson Perfection 1670 Photo.
