Ya, they are workhorses for sure. I got a good price when I bought my
Brother MFC and it is also "linuxfriendly" and "just works", otherwise
I would absolutely opted for an HP printer. In another office there is
a HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 a910 (how long can you make a name) that is a
multifunction colour ink printer/scanner/network and so on. Works a
charm too with Kubuntu and HPlip installed.

Version: GnuPG v1
