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

running in circles trying to figure out if they will work. If you got
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).
