My mileage does vary because I hate the small HP printers, the low end
ones use nasty foil belt fusers which die frequently and write the
printer off and I think last time I looked they worked out more
expensive per page than anything else.
Oh and not that it matters here but never ever use the CD to install an
HP printer on Windows...1GB of crudware for a printer...thanks HP, even
the "minimal" installer tends to have a nice collection of software to
take over the perfectly functional print spooler, provide links to buy
consumables from your taskbar and nag you frequently for not giving HP
marketing your contact details.
I'd say Brother probably make the best small lasers, Samsung also make
some nice ones..both of which tend to work out cheaper per page than HP
and AFAIK they are all Linux friendly
