Dear lazyweb, we need a new printer-scanner combination for our new office, ideally a laser printer and a high-resolution scanner (1200dpi). It must integrate nicely with CUPS and SANE, without requiring any proprietary, closed-licence drivers or plugins. It also has to come with an automatic document feeder in addition to the plain flatbed scanner.
Additional, would-be-nice features in decreasing order of preference are
- Colour printing (separate cartridges a must)
- Duplex printing (real duplex preferred over soft solutions)
- Direct scanning to PDF (distribution by E-mail, Samba or FTP)
I have investigated the Samsung CLX-6220FX, but the driver situation was such a nightmare (and the printer so loud), that we returned it right away. I should have read this article by Peter beforehand…
Does anyone have experience with these HP models and can recommend them for use with Debian stable?
Does anyone have another recommendation?
Please send me a message. Thanks!
