This Week's Pick:
Lexmark Genesis S815 Multifunction 4-in-1 Inkjet Printer
With Flash Scan Technology
How often do we find ourselves tapping our feet impatiently as our printers scan our documents and pictures? Printers have advanced in every field over the past 20 years, yet their scanners seem to suffer from arrested development. Cue Lexmark! With the Genesis S815, Lexmark has introduced a printer that scans in 3 seconds. Is it magic? Nay, it is a 10MP camera that delivers an unmatched quality and speed that would make Seabiscuit flinch. Lexmark calls this Flash Scan Technology. Almost instantaneously, after closing the scan bed, the color touch-screen control panel displays a preview that can be cropped and edited. Then, you can use a wide selection of SmartSolutions web-connected apps to scan your images or documents to Flickr, Photobucket, Picasa, Mobileme, Evernote, and much more. The SmartSolutions apps also provide solutions for regular tasks in legal, health care, food service, and real estate environments. This printer is not, by any means, a one-trick pony.
Whether a scrapbook fanatic or an accountant, the Genesis S815 offers unique and intuitive features that make life less stressful and work more efficient. It features a four-cartridge design, and with Inksell.com compatible 100XL cartridges (@ $14.95 for Black and $9.95 for each color) the cost of printing is only 3 cents per page* for black and 5 cents per page** for color. If scanning and copying documents and images has been slowing you down, this is the machine for you. A total package of cost savings, lightning fast scanning, a intuitive interface, and life enriching applications that takes up 40% less space than most printers on the market.
