Thanks.
My experience with HP laser printers is good.
But, they bricked the printer cartridges on my HP deskjet.
Then said they retracted but that didn't roll back the damage.

My next printer will not be an HP and probably will be a Brother,
so I want to be prepared. :)

PS: Yes, I know. I forgot to reread what I'd written, in case it was too cryptic.

Yes, Linux printing is an order of magnitude better than it was 10 years ago,
and it is still sometimes a problem for some. Epson gave me more problems than HP.

I kept a Windows partition for years just to be able to print when my original HP 1020 driver
took a vacation. Updates, power surges, the phase of the moon all seemed
to have an undue effect on that printer.

I hope Brother's printers will be as reliable as HPś.
For now, the HP P1102w is relatively cheap, fast & reliable.

Just fixed a typo within my
Brother-Printer-Installer-Helper Script
here viewtopic.php?f=107&t=45181&start=20#p447475
Just in case you have already downloaded it, I've also fixed the attached tar. :footinmouth: ... and another one :eek:
