Key Features: 4800 x 9600ppi top resolution; 48-bit colour scans; Transparency and negative adapter; Four single-click actions; Scans from books as well as sheets
A flatbed scanner with a transparency and negative adapter built into its lid will normally cost you over £100, but HP’s Scanjet G3110 beats this price by over 10 percent and looks good into the bargain.
With something of the curves of a stealth bomber, its thick, ice-white top includes a raised plateau, which hides the transparency adapter in its lid and holds the four quick-task buttons, which are its only controls. These start scan, scan-to-email, scan-to-PDF and copy jobs. You need a printer to copy, of course.
- Straight to PDF scan
- Quick OCR conversion
- Colour restoration and dust removal
The lid has extending hinges, so you can easily scan from books and magazines. A small panel at the back of its left-hand side offers a power switch and sockets for the separate, black-block power supply and a USB connection, the only way to transfer data.
