Re: debian: Recommendation for scanner/printer/fax/copier

Try the Brother MFC-9600. It's a great value for the money. It's a laser printer, copier, and fax in one for only about $600 US. It's not network ready so you would have to hook it up to either a PC or one of those small HP JetDirect PrintServers. I don't think it has native postscript (that always seems to cost a lot more). I shopped around looking at HP, Xerox, Cannon and others, but nobody put the complete package (with laser) together for a price anywhere near the Brother model. That was about 6 mo. ago so there may be some newer models out there, but I doubt it.

I'm running an Apple Titanium G4 and an Intel Pentium-II machine (both with Debian ofcourse). I would like to purchase a scanner but would also like to be able to do photocopies. I could use a computer to scan then print but that can be a bit inefficient. I was thinking of an all in one unit that HP, Cannon or maybe Brother produce. Are there any recommendations from other Linux users.

I would prefer a Laser printing engine but they seem harder to come by. I would also prefer a printer with inbuilt postscript (I always have seem to have problems with ghostscript). I think USB is the way to go though an ethernet connection would be even better.

If there is nothing suitable then recommendations on individual products would be greatly appreciated.
