Yay, Linux printing…

Brother HL-2170W 23ppm Laser Printer with Wireless and Wired Network Interfaces … printing from all my Windows boxes and my Linux VMs without problems. Finally.

Wireless printer: for Linux?

I hate printers, partly because finding the right one is bloody painful.

I’m not planning on printing photos; what I want is something that will rattle out legible copies of documentation from time to time and the odd copy of reference materials/paperwork: software licenses via email etc.

But I do want it to be wireless so that I can move it wherever is convenient and still access it from my laptop/desktop.

I bought a Lexmark z1420. Waste of the $40 it cost me. It has fancy custom drivers with no Linux support, so I can’t use it from my Ubuntus, and when I can get my desktop PC to connect to it, it doesn’t actually print…

When I find a decent sounding match on Newegg that is also on the Open Printer Database, the reviews quickly reveal it to be an ink guzzler.

Basically: Under $100, Wireless, fair ink usage and trivial Linux support.

Any recommendations?
