It's a scanner. Doesn't seem any quicker than things half it's size. Bought primarily for slides on a separate computer in a different room. It's OK, not tried it for photos, text, etc, seems to be nowhere to name files before scanning, I might be wrong there.
Very big, and not any better than the considerably cheaper Epson V200 (which also does 5 slides at a time but a little more fiddely to get the slides in). At least this HP does the old cardboard slides with ease.
