Absolutely greatest machine ever ~WHEN it is working.
26 January 2014
Summary: So you wonder why I only gave a 3 star rating.I love this printer & it's features WHEN it is working. Purchased my 1st one & paid right at $800.00 for it, brand new just hit the market & I had been waiting. Thrilled with it until the print head died in less than a year. Lexmark shipped one out next day ~ happy again. I am now going on my 5th print head & 1 replacement printer & guess what print head out again today.
Would not recommend if quick scanning is not a priority...

Summary: Received DOA. Lexmark sent a replacement. Scanning speed is quick, though scanning software is limited. OK as far as printing is concerned. For those who wish to convert paper to files quickly, good buy for $150. Scanning speed for a typical document is about 5 seconds - easy to use directly from touchpad on device itself or via software on your PC. A few glitches here and there, but satisfied overall. Would not recommend if quick scanning is not a priority..
Summary: First of all I'm a Cannon fan, but since I had to have a certain size printer to fit into a certain space in my Semi truck this is the only one that would work. Not sure why all the Mfg. have to configure there printers length ways, why not put all the controls on one end with the paper feeds so that the printer can fit into narrow spaces. I will give Lexmark high grades for trying something new though with this design.
Summary: After 2 days of thinking, I finally gave in and bought this printer thru one of the sellers on Amazon (because it can arrive to my house in 1 day with Amazon Prime). There is only 1 seller qualified for prime shipping and sell at $200s. It is not a bad deal as I can use Prime shipping + extra fee for 1 day delivery. And now I have the printer seating next to me!!! Experience: *** AFTER I USED THIS PRINTER, I HAVE JUST INCREASED THIS FROM a 4 stars to a 5 stars !!
Summary: 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. I had lots of problems with my MAC and the printer. Lexmark was always very helpful and also changed my printer with no questions asked (this is why 3 starts and not 2). However, today I'd rather buy another brand.
Summary: Nice unit but just wasted a weekend upgrading to Windows 8 to find that the Genesis is not supported in that version and unlikely to be. Should have checked compatibility first. Now back to windows 7.
Summary: *****UPDATE***** I have now returned this printer, despite trying to get it to work with our Apple mac products, and numerous calls to both Lexmark and Apple, no luck. It is a beautiful unit but end of the day you need something that works! Fantastic service from Amazon as always with the return. 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.
Excerpt: ....................................................... Anschaffung: habe Radio gehört und dort von einer Verlosung eines Druckers gehört. Also habe ich schnell angerufen, weil mein alter Drucker zufälligerweise eine Woche zuvor defekt wurde. Wie es der Zufall so will habe ich doch tatsächlich den Drucker gewonnen und konnte ihn mir vom Radiosender abholen. Aus diesen Gründen, kann ich keine Angaben zu Kauf Ort und Kaufpreis machen.
