Lexmark Genesis Review - PCWorld


Lexmark can't be faulted for modesty in picking the lofty name of Genesis for its groundbreaking new inkjet multifunction. The price is similarly ambitious at $400 (as of November 23, 2010)--far more than most home or small-office users would typically...

Lexmark Genesis review


The price is similarly ambitious at $400 in the US (we're expecting it to be around £250 when/if it launches in the UK). This is far more than most home or small-office users would typically pay for an MFP. Is it worth the money? As with the equally...

Lexmark certainly has something to brag about with the Lexmark Genesis, offering a game-changing design and technology that other high-end home MFPs like the Canon Pixma MG8120 and Epson Artisan 835 can't touch. We'd be more excited about the Lexmark...
