A decent system

Pros It is a terrific system for people who need to fix pictures
Cons The software is all but useless for actual art unless you are a photographer
Recommended it? No

The Visioneer OneTouch 5800 Flatbed Scanner is a great piece of equipment but the software that comes with it are lacking it is a great tool for people who just need it to fix up pictures a little but for people who do artwork to scan into their computer it is probably not worth even installing the...

Pros The most worthless peice of crap ever manufactured.
Cons There isnt enough space here, be afraid, be very very afraid.
Recommended it? No

You want facts here they are..... This is my second, count that -2-, piece of crap 5800 visioneer. This worthless paperweight is sitting on my desk right now and the only thing it is good for is to keep my paperwork from flying away if we have an indoor hurricane.

Recommended it? No

Overall a decent machine. Set up and use is simple. Speed of scans is good. The big downside is the Paperport software which crashed frequently and also seems to create problems with associated programs. The Paperport software associates with all other document related software on the computer so... Read full review »


I love it except, for the "lock" -mess monster.

Pros price, and user friendly.
Cons cannot find the updated driver; too convoluted to deal with.
Recommended it? Yes

I rate this 4 stars. This scanner does my 600 dpi and lets me crop and therefore enlarge. I love it. The only mess is how to update the driver. I had someone download an updated driver to unlock the virtual lock. Now that I am alone, I cannot remember how to do it. Otherwise, this is the simplest... Read full review »

Pros Top cover removes for large items.
Cons Error messages; scanner won't work
Recommended it? No

I was really pleased with this scanner when I first purchased it 6 months ago. It was on sale at Office Depot for about $50. and had a rebate for $30. which meant I paid only $20.. I found it very easy to use and could get nice scans on jewelry and other items which I sell on eBay. I would... Read full review »

Recommended it? No

Visioneer 5800 USB
I used the scanner for about three months and found it good for my simple photo scanning purposes.

Then an error message appeared that the scanner was locked. There is no lock. After fax correspondence with Visioneer, I uninstalled and then re-installed the... Read full review »

Pros sorry, can't find any
Cons bad drivers, software, etc.
Recommended it? No

I run windows98. I installed the software, computer locked up. With a reboot, everything's fine until I try to connect with the scanner. Computer locks up. I tried for several hours getting it to work, to no avail. I even downloaded the drivers from the visioneer website, and it still didn't work... Read full review »

Pros Tremendous Value
Cons Not apparent
Recommended it? Yes

Easily installed software, choice of twain or automatic, button operation...good reproduction and really fast scanning. The 5800 Visioneer replaces a 4400 model, and the size is identical. However, speed is considerably faster and the option of button selection for automatic e-mail, printer or... Read full review »


What a waste of plastic and metal! (with example pictures)

Pros Speed is good, install is easy, quiet
Cons Very poor scan quality, crappy software, poor color reproductions
Recommended it? No

I picked up this turd on a free-after-rebate/coupon deal from Office Max. I had an old parallel scanner which had dodgy support in Windows XP, so I wanted to update to something a little more modern. It wasn't worth the $2 in tax. My hope is that if I get a few people reading this review, I can... Read full review »

Pros Inexpensive (i.e., cheap!)
Cons Poor build quality, ugly, flimsy attached USB cable, Intermittent failures, poor software
Recommended it? No

I bought this scanner because it was only $49.95 and had a $30 rebate. Well, it is a piece of junk. Sometimes it would work, most of the time it would not. It would often quit in the middle of a scan for no reason. Other times it would show as disconnected, despite the fact that I just scanned... Read full review »

Pros Fast, accurate scans. Good value, if the price is right.
Cons Won't scan larger documents accurately because of plastic case.
Recommended it? Yes

The Visioneer One Touch 5800 USB makes fast, accurate scans - significantly faster than my three-year old Visioneer 6100 USB. Two full-screen scans at 100 dpi take 27 seconds, at 200 or 300 dpi take 42 seconds, at 400 dpi take 70 seconds, and in the preview mode takes 12 seconds fir a single scan... Read full review »

I've owned a Microtek E3 scanner since 1996 and have used it a lot. My Microtek was a SCSI interface, and as technology advances, it was time for an upgrade. I learned how great USB hardware is after I bought my Kodak Dx3600 digital camera (SEE REVIEW) and knew I wanted a USB scanner. Well the... Read full review »
