Hi Folks,

I recently bought a Samsung 610ND, and have been very pleased with it:

	- duplex
	- colour
	- reasonably high-capacity consumables (so for our use, they would  
need changing every couple of years)
	- postscript (native 4-up, etc.)
	- Linux/Mac/Windows friendly
	- networking built in
	- good bang for the buck (about $400) (Most of the printers in this  
class are $600 and way up)

Downsides:
	- it's a big box, so look at the dimensions, and think about where  
you will tuck it (under a desk)?


Brother makes a much more compact duplexing colour laser, so you might  
want to consider that.

There are cheaper/smaller/different boxes, but at least for my  
interests, the 610nd involved the least compromise.

	All the Best,

	-Cedric
