Summary: I love this printer because it has saved me from several jams when my computer breaks down. I have been able to use the scan to fax function and the documents arrive with extraordinary clarity, even when sending documents internationally. There are only two drawbacks; the fax function only works with a land line, so if you have an internet phone, it will not work. But you can scan to e-mail as an alternative for sending documents.
Summary: I have really liked Lexmark printers I have owned in the past. The Genesis model, however, has not met my expectations in any way. If I don't print things every day, the printer heads require multiple deep-cleanings. Ink levels show adequate amounts of ink, but print every color as pink anyway.
Wonderful concept printer, too bad it failed miserably...

Summary: I got this printer because my trusty old HP printer died unexpectedly after many years of service, I needed a replacement ASAP, this printer seemed to have some nice features, and there was a mega-sale on this printer. Looking back, I know why this printer was on mega-sale: it's a terrible printer. In a nutshell hardware (scanner, interface) works great, but the software (firmware, network connectivity, printer drivers, etc.) are horrendous.
Summary: this is the most attractive printer that i've ever owned. I've owned this printer for a couple of years and have had plenty of time to decide if i like it or not. i hate this printer. there..i said it. lol i bought it cause it was pretty. bIG mistake. if it were my wife I'd have divorced it by now. it drinks ink like crazy the cartridges are expensive and have little ink. it loses connection with the software to print all the time.
Summary: It worked for a while,but then pictures came out distorted. I put new ink in it and that didn't work, so I called Lexmark and she asked me if I used there ink? I told her that I ordered the ink for the Lexmark s800. She sent me ink. In the meantime I did a deep clean. When I got her,I tried it and it didn't work.So I put the old ink in and it worked, but only for a short while and know its back to making crappy pictures?
Summary: Lexmark Genesis; The coolest name for the worst printer ever. Don't let the slick facade fool you into thinking it's going to be spectacular piece of equipment as it is anything but that. Everything from setting up the printer to getting it to work was a hassle. The wireless connection is laughably intermittent even though the printer was only 4 ft from the computer!
Summary: I brought this printer last christmas! it only worked 3 days before it was telling me it was out of ink! HUH? now mind you I only printed about 20 pages! Isn't the ink suppose to last longer than that? Then it start telling me to clean the print head, which I did to no avail! still kept getting the same error message. It faxes great as long as you leave the printer head off you can still fax! But I want a printer and copier!
