I've got a Lexmark C520 (non-duplex) which works very well with Linux
(supports PCL6). The only problem is that it seems to go through
consumables *much* more quickly than what they are rated for. Does
anyone else find this to be an issue when using Linux/HP/ppd drivers for
printing from Linux in general?
Cedric, if you have used your Samsung for some time, could you maybe
comment on the rate consumables are being used (better/worse than expected).
BTW: Samsung 610ND at DirectDial.com for $359.
