Definitly I prefer epson, is cheaper than others .and. the ink is easy to find, you have a lot of model$ to select, almost all works withh any flavor of linux, in www.linuxprinting.org
you can find a lot of drivers for any printer you want.

If you are looking for a laser printer, HP is still the best. Most have
PostScript and PCL built-in. Toner cartridges are relatively easy to find.
You can buy them with JetDirect interfaces and duplexers. And HP printers
are all built like Mercedes.
If you are looking for a color inkjet printer, HP would _not_ be your best
choice because if it ever breaks you must ship it back to them for repair.
The last time I checked, HP does not sell inkjet printer parts to local
repair shops. Several friends have bought Canon inkjets and like them. I
personally prefer Epsons. My Epson Stylus Color 980N has a built-in
JetDirect-type interface and is very well supported by FC1.
