I got the HP2605dn, which has the printing engine in the printer rather than
in the software on the workstation. Installed in several flavours of Linux
without a problem - the ppd files are available. Picture quality was much
better than I expected, although toner usage seems a bit high. Print speed
from an idle state seemed reasonably quick. Will print double sided, which is
nice. Recently discounted at OfficeDepot and Costco in the SF Bay area.
