Well, it depends on a few choices:
1. Do you want colour or "black and white"?
2. Do you want an inkjet or laser printer?
4. Desktop space. ;-)
My recommendation? EPSON Stylus COLOR 800! :-)
Why? Because I have an EPSON Stylus COLOR 500 here and I *absolutely* love
it! It is fantastic! Its b&w and colour print quality is awesome! It
works great under Debian GNU/Linux with Ghostscript 5.10 (gs-aladdin),
i.e. you probably don't need EPSON's PS level 2 option. (I have no idea
what if the option is hardware or software based.)
I want colours and I love colours, and EPSON Stylus COLOR 800 creates superb
text and photo printouts. Ghostscript 5.10 even supports 1440x720 dpi mode!
:-) You can't go wrong with EPSON Stylus COLOR 500. :-)
But then, if you prefer a laser printer instead, go with HP LJ 4L or other
fine printers. :-)
