Look at Kyocera TASKalfa Series...

fifteen years ago, Kyocera was crap.....
I sure hope they improved their stuff since that time.

I think I have seen this brand here in the Northeast USA.

it is one of the main printers I use at work.

it's in the basement and I'm networked to it but mostly I use it directly to copy stuff or scan stuff in pdf onto a flashdrive; one can also send scanned stuff to a 'mailbox' which can be accessed via a browser; you can set this 'public' or 'private'.

the few occasions I 'send' jobs to it it's via CUPS. I do this so infrequently I'm not even sure it works but I imagine it does. it works fine with another networked printer I use daily at work (an HP laser device, b/w, two trays, duplex).


HP is one of the major brands for the "big" office printer, copier, fax, collating, stapling and multi-tray office machine. There are others, but so far it seems that the driver for Ubuntu with "HP CUPS" has the most printer tray and paper/envelope sizes/styles of all of the other brands of printers I have tried on my system.

I really think the key will be which brand and model of "big office printer" has the best driver, with the most options, for Linux. That is in the subject line after all. I have had [and have] some nice printers that currently have no proper Linux driver[s]. My HP 7000 wide format will print letter size [8.5 by 11 inches] but will not print the 11 by 17 inch paper, for which I bought it. I have to use my Win7 "boot" of my dual booting laptop to use that printer.
