I recently bought an Epson Stylus C80 which is supported perfectly in Debian. 
I have had no problems using CUPS to configure it, and on top of that, it is 
much faster and higher quality than my older Lexmark z22, which I tried 
desperately to set up in Debian with the aid of this newsgroup to no avail. 
The Epson can print 20 PPM in black text and color is extremely fast too at 
1200 x 1200 resolution and 600 DPI. Overall, it's a very nice printer for 
about $120.

See how well it's supported at http://www.linuxprinting.org. That's where I 
got my information and it is a great resource in general.
