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 Genesis S815


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

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


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 S815. Most immediately striking are the aesthetics, since it utilises an innovative vertical design...

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...

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

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.
