Avoid that low-end crap like the plague. Those are usually depend on the
driver to do all the processing work and chances of finding a FreeBSD driver
are essentially nonexistant.

Preferably get a printer that understands PostScript. If not then at least PCL
or ESC2P. Look at the database for a printer that works

If you cannot afford a new one, look for a second-hand "professional"
printer. They are usually better quality. First or second generation color
laser printers will be quite bulky but they shouldn't be too expensive.
