    A friend want to scan in his collection of slides to a dvd, so he can view
    them on his 30" TV.

    He will only buy Hewlett Packard, and they have suggested to him to buy the
    Scanjet 4890 AND the All-in-one 3310.
    My question is........... the all-in-one should scan in slides/negatives
    (4800x4800) , so would the extra resolution offered by the scanjet
    (4800x9600) be of any value while viewing on a Television. Or does anyone
    know if HP do an all-in-one that offers better resolution ??

    thanks

    The 4890 is the top end home scanner.
    It has a full sized transparence adapter built in to the lid.
    It can scan 16 slides at a time. Takes about 30 seconds a slide at 2400dpi.
    I'm not sure why he needed/wanted the multifunction 3310.
