Does anyone know of companies that do product-lines that are easily

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.
Printer in the basement of the office building - well that is
inconvenient to print and the go there to pick your prints up.
All of the printers I use are left of my desktop [I am left handed] and
less than 4 feet away. If I cannot reach them, I just "roll" the chair
over to the printer. I have the HP laser printer and the Canon inkjet on
the "desk high" shelf and the wide format printer on a shelf 2 feet over
top of the laser printer.
My laser printer is an HP laserjet 2300 dn - duplex and network. It has
the bottom tray and the fold-out multipurpose tray. I use the bottom
tray for the "standard copy paper" quality paper. I use the fold-out
tray for the feeding of 1 to 10 sheets of colored paper, cover stock
paper, envelopes, and other types of printing.
When I look at the printer's available drivers [i.e. make and model
driver list] I get 15 different ones to choose from. I use the one
that is named "HP Laserjet 2300 pcl3, hpcups 3.13.4". That one has the
most options of all the ones I have tried, so far.
NOTE: I finally got the HP Officejet 7000 wide format printer to work.
I had to reserve its network IP address in the router table and define
it. Then I had to install all of the packages for "hplip" that was in
the Synaptic Package Manager that seemed was not installed, or reinstall
the repository versions, if it looked like a non-repository version was
installed. Something was missing, somewhere, but is finally prints the
11 by 17 inch paper, instead of just the 8.5 by 11 inch type. It was a
pain to boot up a Windows partition on my laptop to print my posters and
newsletters via a PDF file on a flash drive.
I keep the following paper in the printers:
HP Laser 2300dn
------- bottom tray - generic/plain white paper
------- fold-out tray - sometimes color paper or cover stock paper
Canon MG6220 inkjet
------ bottom tray - quality bright white inkjet paper
------ back tray - photo paper
------ printer also prints the labels on the DVD media
HP Officejet 7000 - wide format
------ bottom tray - 11 by 17 inch paper of either plain paper or cover
