I got a Samsung ML-2571N for well under $100 at Fry's something like
a year ago; granted that was a sale price, dunno regular.  It speaks
PostScript and lpd, so no need to bother with drivers or CUPS; all
it needs is a printcap entry.  (BTW it also works seamlessly from
MacOS X.)

One small caution:  there is also an ML-2571 without the N -- it
may have a different letter -- which is not networked, dunno if
that one handles PostScript.
