Flatbed scanners have long ruled the
domestic market due to their affordability and quality. Sheet- feeding scanners
emerged to reduce the desk area needed, but the quality suffered, and now HP’s
innovative vertical scanner provides a little more room for your pencil case.
Although HP’s claims of a six-second scan
may be a little optimistic when dealing with detailed artwork, the results
produced by this 2,400 DPI, 48-bit scanner are reasonably impressive. More
realistic scan times are nearer to 30-plus seconds for a 4x6 colour photo,
25-plus seconds for a black- and-white drawing, or 40-plus seconds for a sheet
USB 2.0 connectivity provides a speed
boost, and a comprehensive range of file formats are supported. Although
possibly better suited to scanning office documents than artwork, the 4670 is a
capable scanner for those with limited desk space.
