400 QUID CAN GET YOU A CANON PHOTO PRINTER!!
but for £100 this is a bargain,quiet and quick,and the photos on photo paper are outstanding in this price range [£100].
The scanner is amazing with a ten megapixel camera ,giving you a review on the printer in a couple of seconds!!
the fax stuff is no good to me so i havent tried it, but setting up with wifi and connecting to my imac was no problem
at all, and registering with lexmark for my extended garentee and smart solutions was easy and now have loads of FREE
applications in my smart solutions.
ANY GRIPES ? well only one i can find up till now is that it wont accept the 105xl black cartridges which are 'cheap' £4.50 and
i have 4 of these from my 805 pro setup, its a bit of a bummer as the 100xl are £20 plus.
I searched online before i bought this and couldn't find a 'bad' review anywhere, only about price (when it was 3 to 400 quid).
For its looks and performance and stunning photos for 100 quid this is a bargain...
Firstly, coming to write this review I am a little annoyed, I paid £180 just 4 weeks ago for this and now its here at £106 but hey ho thats life.
We bought this to sit with our new 21" iMac, thinking it was a good looking unit they'd work niceley together and the tech reviews were pretty good.
First impressions out of the box is ITS BIG! Didn't realise from the photo's or description just how big it would be, but its still beautiful the touch screen on the front is very sleek, double sided printing is nice in a home printer and the quick scan is exactly that, QUICK!
but rewind a little...setting up the printer was a pain, it connected to the Mac (wirelessly) with ease but then refused to work, i eventually found the right firmware downloads from Lexmarks website and managed to print!, scanning then required more downloads to get that running, email took another 30 minutes to set up. To allow wireless printing from my Ipad and Iphone i had to download the lexmark app, which is ok but wont let you print everything (pdf's attached to emails is a pain).
So now its been running for 2 weeks the verdict...Read more ›
PROS: very quick, very efficient scanning (you only need to wait for the LEDs to flash, and then you can move to the following page).
Quality of scans is perfectly satisfactory for normal use, including certain laboratory routines (e.g. Western blots). For higher resolution, a dedicated scanner will be required.
CONS: since the scanner is part of a "combo machine", unfortunately a lot of time is wasted in routine steps and controls, even when the user is entirely un-interested in printing etc.
CONCLUSION: it is really a pity that 1) the machine has been discountinued, and even more: >>> 2) no Producer has picked up and developed the "quick flash" idea for a high-productivity scanner, to be set up and sold just as a QUICK SCANNER (only). I would immediately buy a pair or more for our Laboratories!
I am unable to reliably send e-mails from the device - more often than not they fail - this means that scan to e-mail is a useless concept.
As a backup to this i thought i'd try and use the 'scan to memory device' option - this works -but only to save a jpg of the image.
So yes it's a fast scanner, but the advertised functionality does not work. My current workflow is to scan as a jpg to the memory card, and then convert that into PDF using Preview (mac user here).
A bit clunky, but it works.

A very good printer, with a very small foot print, good for saving space on the desk, but very expensive to run, ink cartridges pricey.Published on 23 Aug. 2014 by Jeff Brookes
Generally the product is good when it works. Ink tends to dry out when longer not used. Some problems with the firmware as mentioned already make the Genesis not always fast. Read morePublished on 23 Aug. 2013 by Alex
