Hi, I currently have an excellent HP A3 Inkjet printer which does scan, copy and print very well, but costs an arm and a leg for ink. Not only does it appear to drink the stuff, a full set of cartridges are currently well over £100.
My Birthday is coming up, so I thought that I would use that as an excuse to get a Laser Printer. I initially looked at HP, because their HPLIP package pretty much guarantees that any of their printers will work on Linux. However, at the cheaper end of the market they are all monochrome only and / or don't do double sided printing automatically. I print a lot of documents with coloured diagrams, so need both colour and double sided printing. At Which? there are three best buy colour Lasers; the HP Color LaserJet Pro M255dw at £799, another HP printer that only does manual double-sided and the Brother HL-L3230CDW, which does everything that I need. However, I've never owned a Brother printer. So what are the gotchas? Do Brother Printers generally work on Linux? Does anyone already own or have experience of this printer? Alternatively, can anyone recommend a laser printer that meets my requirements and also works well on Linux? -- Terry Coles -- Next meeting: Online, Jitsi, Tuesday, 2022-05-04 20:00 Check to whom you are replying Meetings, mailing list, IRC, ... http://dorset.lug.org.uk New thread, don't hijack: mailto:email@example.com
