Lexmark Genesis first look

by Reads (1,845)

When Lexmark unveiled the Genesis earlier this fall, I was a bit perplexed at first because the Genesis looked nothing like any inkjet printer I’ve ever reviewed, or for that matter, seen.

The unique vertical design is only part of the mystique Lexmark would like to build around the latest addition to their SOHO lineup which won’t be available in stores until mid-January. The Genesis also offers Lexmark’s new Flash Scan technology which uses a 10-megapixel imaging sensor that allows the device to scan a document or photo to a PC in less than three seconds.
