HP ScanJet 5500C Scanner with Auto Photo Feeder
Scan in the place where you were
$99.99 + $5 Shipping and Handling
Turn on your scanner. Open your scanning software. Lift the lid of the scanner. Place one photo in the corner of the glass. Close the lid of the scanner. Wait for the scanner to warm up. Wait. Wait. Hit the scan button. Wait. Check the image on the screen. OK, one down. Lift the lid of the scanner. Remove the photo. Place one photo in the corner of the glass…

It’s as maddeningly tedious to read as it is to actually do. There’s a whole world whizzing by out there, shutterbug! Don’t lose another invaluable moment of sweet, sacred life to the archaic demands of your stone age photo scanner. This Jetsons-worthy timesaver can zip through a stack of 3×5s or 4×6s in mere seconds apiece. The lighted adapter eats negatives for breakfast and slides for lunch. One-touch buttons let you copy ‘em, email ‘em, share ‘em on the web – everything but throw ‘em in the oven for baby and me.

Diisregard the powerful hi-res scanner for a moment, if you can – the adapters alone usually cost more than this whole package. But wait! There’s more! You also get a bundle of software for easy manipulation of your scanned pics, and all the cables and manuals you need to put this mug to work. And you don’t even have to thank us. Who Woots you, baby?
