"Get the new drivers and you'll scan happy!"4.5 starson by CyberDiva
Pros: Saves space, very versatile
Cons: Keep the drivers up to date
Summary: I had similar problems with banding UNTIL I contacted HP technical support and they referred me to a new driver. I downloaded the new software and drivers, reinstalled them all, and voila, a great scanner with great printouts! I am so happy now that I picked up the baby brother version (HP 4600) on special at a local office supply chain, and now I use it as a portable scanner with my laptop. I love how I can just lay the scanner on a book or other larger item and it scans great.
