Great price for this well-regarded scanner. Usually £50+ with shipping and probably won't stay at this price for long. Compact, easy-to-use and great for general scanning duties. Fully compatible with Windows 8.1
For those serious about photos, you might want to spend more on a scanner with 4800 x 4800 resolution, such as the Scanjet 300 or Canon LiDE 210.
One plus with these HPs compared to the Canon 210 is that the included software is meant to be better.http://m.hp.com/uk/en/products/scanners/product-detail.do?oid=5251701
