I ended up buying a HP Deskjet 3070A 3-1. Was the best supported device
in my price range, which locals had in stock. After installing the
latest hplip package (v 3.11.12), all is working well.

Thanks for the info on InkJet vs laser, really informative.
Unfortunately my printing load doesn't justify the expense of the colour
lasers. Should I ever need to do high-volume at home, I'll investigate a
monochrome laser.
