I haven't had too much trouble with printers except for photo and colour
ones. Check the foomatic db and you should be fine. I have got a canon
pixma photo printer and a samsung colour laser working with no trouble,
just can't get photo quality so you should have no trouble I'd reckon.
Low up front _and_ maintenance costs is pushing it IMO- like oil and
water: never together. But of course that is always relative :) And it
is also relative to where you live too.
Just my 2c... :) Good luck!
