Default Printer opinion needed.

I'm looking to pick up a decent but inexpensive laser printer. I was looking at the HP P2015DN and was wondering if anyone has any experience/comments etc? Also any comments on it's use with Linux and FreeBSD as well as Windows.

Samsung is the only company that officially supports Linux that I'm aware of. Not sure if the P2015dn will support either OS, but it's an excellent printer. Very fast, well built, low cost of operation, and a decent feature set.

We sell them at Staples and have a 30-day return policy if you want to try one out (make sure you keep the packaging and receipt).

That's an idea Jmac. Thanks!

I have nothing bad to say about the P2015dn, I've set one up for a small business and I haven't had to do any troubleshooting on it since it was installed about 3 months ago. I personally have a Lexmark E120 that my boss gave to me and it works flawlessly. The nice thing about the Lexmark is that it's a network printer also which is a bonus. They are well worth the money as you can pick them up really cheap now.

Samsung by far has the best options for small laser printers at the moment.
