I have been very content with my old HP Laserjet 4L the last years. I even bought a USB→Centronics adapter when I bought a new pc without parallel port. The last few days however it had some problems with the paper cassette. Some small plastic part was broken, and although my glueing kept several days, I eventually had to give up on it. I decided it was time for something new, and I bought a Samsung CLP-310N Color Laserjet for about €110,- after I read that some people got it working on Linux.
