If you do want low cost printing, investigate CISS (continuous ink
system). You can find printers equipped, and avid to install youself,
which is somehow tricky

Actually, I tend to look for third party ink sources, to help with my
smaller fixed income.
I know that I sometimes choose Postscript Level 3 instead of the
default PDF option, when it is shown as an option.
Right now, I do much more color work, so my only laser printer is
slowly using the toner. I have had a replacement toner on the for
several years now. I think I have about 500-600 pages to go before I
need to change out the empty one.
I love the HPLIP system. That system is the best driver system over
any other printer brand I have used. For Canon, I have to find
drivers in UK or other English countries since Canon USA does not
support Linux - officially from their support people. That was before
the Canon TS like of printers. I bought a TS-9020 printer and it had
basic support for Linux. The scanner package is very limited compared
to the MG6200 line's scanner package. At least Canon is starting to
believe that the US market also has Linux users that want to use Canon
As for CUPS, I have CUPS-pdf driver/printing service installed as one
of my printers. There seems to references to a newer PDF creating
package, but have not found it.
So, here is my list of network printers:
Canon TS9020 inkjet all-in-one [wired and wireless]
HP Laserjet 2300dn - postscript driver used
HP Officejet 7000-E809a - hpcups used
I had others, but they died from use. The color laser's image "belt"
somehow got "scratched" during a toner install or a paper flow issue.
So the middle of the printout had major issues. It would cost less to
get another color laser than it would to repair it. So I chose not to

In the office we have a networked Brother HL3170CDW that is colour
laser printer only. Prints well including postscript files. Brother
also seem to have good driver support. CUPS, LPR/LPRng on Linux.

Our printer in the office is ending its life in colorful printouts,

It printed approx. 50K pages during approx. 5 years. It has
duplex support, but it had its issues.
We print using lpr, mostly postscript.
Therefore I ask the community for feedback:
Which printer works best in a mostly-libreoffice enviroment ?
