We've been using HP LaserJets for ages here at home. Currently have a
LaserJet P2015D (can automatically print both sides of a sheet). They
work fine with CUPS. You get a LOT of pages out of a toner cartridge
(typical average figures are 3000 pages). I think in the last 12 years
of using laser printers, we've only had to buy 2 replacement cartridges.
They print MUCH faster than inkjets!
There are other brands out there, too. I've heard good things about
Brother laser printers. They're cheaper than HPs.
Ages back, I used a Lexmark 4039 laser printer. It was a workhorse -
never broke down even though it was old when I inherited it. Never had a
paper jam. Of course, the 4039s weren't "affordably priced" printers ...
The same employer had an HP LaserJet I (yes, the first HP laser jet
printer) hooked up to their mainframe and used it to print out daily
financial reports. Roughly 300-500 pages each day, 7 days a week. I
worked there 13 years. They'd had it for I don't know how many years
before that. A few years before I left there, it finally quit printing -
because a tooth on a small plastic wheel inside had FINALLY broken. They
could have gotten the replacement part from HP and repaired it, but they
decided it was time to get a faster laser ...
Anyway, I've like HP lasers very much since then.
