Lexmark Genesis S815 All-in-One Printer

 

To be perfectly honest, I haven't exactly had the best of experiences with Lexmark products in the past. Many years back, I went through two less than stellar Lexmark printers. ...

Aesthetically pleasing design with color touchscreen ; Innovative imaging technology for scanner ; Integrated WiFi-N connectivity ; Good print quality and acceptable print speed

No feed scanner ; Cannot take on thicker documents, books, etc ; Easy to accidentally flip open the scanner cover ; Comparatively expensive

After plugging in the power to the printer, it starts the setup process automatically. This is where you can set your language, date/time, and time zone. It’ll also get you to install the print cartridges, of course, and getting them in there was a...

Lexmark's innovative multifunction printer is more than just a gimmick

Lexmark Genesis S815 review

 

Does this mould-breaking device represent a rebirth for the multifunction printer?

Small footprint ; Very fast image capture ; Versatile mini-apps ; Good print quality

Limited 'scanning' resolution ; Only one paper tray

Lexmark Genesis S815 - Pocket-lint

 

It's not often you see something a bit different in the printer/AIO market but Lexmark has produced a device that should turn a few heads in the Genesis

Excellent print quality, useful online resources, impressive touchscreen, super-fast scans

Very slow print speeds, expensive

The Genesis S815 is a great looking device capable of some excellent quality output, a super-fast scan feature that actually works and additional benefits in the online content available. £400-ish is still a lot to pay though, and since it loses points...

Lexmark Genesis S815 review

 

One of the best MFP interfaces, but scan and print quality is too poor to justify the price

Lexmark Genesis S815

 

A novel rethink of the all-in-one inkjet, with its ultra-fast vertical scanner and an unconventional, supposedly small-footprint design.

REVIEW: Lexmark Genesis S815

 

The Genesis S815 (420x386x321mm, 8.7kg) delivers everything a modern home office requires from a multifunction device. It can copy, scan, fax and e-mail at the touch of a button. Network connectivity comes via 802.11n Wi-Fi. There's no Ethernet or...

It also produces good quality prints, albeit not up to enthusiast photography levels. If performance trumps design, there are better AIOs for high-resolution scanning, better document handling and photo printing. For everyday casual use, the Genesis...

Lexmark Genesis S815

 

The Lexmark Genesis S815 is a delightfully pretty piece of tech. It stands proudly upright, while its competitors squat their bulk over the better part of your desk.

Lexmark Genesis S815

 

This is a completely different shape for a Multi Function unit. It is Multi Function as not only does it print, scan and copy but should you still need the facility it can also be used as a Fax machine. The shape is higher rather than wider.

The design of this unit is very different so much more can be done from the touchscreen TFT, Smart Solutions could be useful and the Lexmark software monitors not only its own card slot and USB stick port but also those on the PC so printing images...
