I used to use Brother MFC420CN until it kinda went bust and eternally 
refused to print saying ink was low even just after loading new ink 
cartridges (planned obsolescence, I guess). I moved to using a HP 
OfficeJet J4680, and I am very happy so far. They have Linux drivers - 
hplipfull. On Jaunty, the printer is autodetected. Everything JUST 
WORKS. I have been using it only for the past few months (maybe too 
early for ink glitches), but so far, I would highly recommend it.
