This Printer stands out on looks alone, initially it was quite pricey but it is now priced at £ 98.40* Amazon.co.uk.
This printer has a smaller footprint and looks that impress. It can scan a picture in 3 seconds. This is due to the 10 megapixel camera sensor. You can also reposition pages as it shows an image of what you are scanning on the front. If you scan a lot this printer is ideal.
The printers touch screen is 4.3 inch which is easy to use. The printer connects through Wi-Fi, once connected if you want you can install Lexmark’s Smart Solutions mini-apps, there are over 60 apps available at the moment, Including a calculator, display clock or access to Facebook or Twitter.
The printer uses thermal inkjet technology with 4800 x1200 dpi (dots per inch) a quality A4 photo can take up to 2 minutes 30 seconds. Printing 20 sheets can take up to Six minutes which is Ok for home use but may struggle in an office environment. There are also handy features such as Double sided printing and an integrated fax machine. It has slots for SD, MMC, XD and Memory USB pen.
The Genesis printer takes the Lexmark 100xl ink cartridges.
Overall this is a good looking printer and it has some great features the only thing that I would say is printing does take a little longer. But the scanning time is the best I have seen.
