Subject: Printer recommendation please

Could you please recommend me a home printer that works nicely with FreeBSD?

HP inkjets aren't that bad, FreeBSD drivers are allright, but I'd like to shift towards some kind of PostScript laser. Xerox Phaser 6500 looks nice, but I can not economically justify my appetite. Is there a cheaper alternative or maybe PostScript printers aren't that good idea anyway, heh?

Not exactly conclusive, I have a Dell 1320C with the Ethernet module, and while I have never needed to connect it to one of my FreeBSD machines, it would work with OS X and CUPS, since then Dell has released an official driver for OS X. However I am not sure as to how much use an OS X driver would be for FreeBSD, for £90 I am satisfied with its performance.
