Any one using a current small laser printer that cost's in the 100 to 200

something in that range to work which one?


I bought a Brother HL-5250DN laser printer a couple weeks ago and it's been working extremely great. The setup was extremely simple with CUPS. I just put in the IP address of the printer (it's a network printer) and copied the PPD file from the CD. Then restarted CUPS and it's working (and tons better than my Lexmark Z52 I might add :D).

PriceGrabber shows it right at $200 right now, but I got it locally for a little less with a price match. I looked into the smaller Brother models (such as the HL-2040) that are less money initially and was going to get that one on sale at Staples that week, but in the long run with toner and drums the 5250DN is a much better deal. Plus it has the networking so setup is real simple.

I have to say that if you plan on using AbiWord with it, it might not work for you. There is a bug report on their bug tracker about it and when I choose the Brother printer to print to, it just prints a blank page (and shows one in Print Preview as well). Printing to the Lexmark Z52 works fine so it's not all printers, but just with some lasers I think (Bug #7852).
