Summary: Lexmark is trying to break out of the mold with this Genesis S816 printer. It has an upscale look and good quality. It offers ease of use as well as the fastest scanning that we’ve seen in an all-in-one printer. The Genesis S816 performs all of its functions well, including printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. Features abound in this printer, including an automatic duplexer, a front-side USB port, and a three-year extended warranty with registration.
Summary: The Lexmark Genesis comes in an upright format that's different than anything you've seen before. Along with a smaller footprint, the printer comes with excellent printing (photos in particular, but prints as well), and a very easy to use scanner. It's not perfect: of course there's no automatic document feeder or duplex scanning; and you may find pages come out limp when you print color documents (particularly on both sides).
Pros: Excellent prints and photos, Customizable applications (SmartSolutions), Wireless networking is easy to set up, Cool and space-saving form factor, Automatic duplex printing
Cons: Photos tricky to print; slightly notched on one edge, Touchscreen could be bigger--typing can be tricky during setup, No duplex scanning
