    I need to replace an aging HP Laserjet 5 that fuser, rollers, etc have
    finally started to die - its big and bulky and slower than I need so
    dont want to repair it.

    Ive seen mentions of the smaller Samsung and Brother laser printers -
    looking around there are so many models to choose from.

    Is anyone using this type of printer, can recommend?

    My requirements are:-

    A4
    Cheap
    Small
    Quiet
    Quick
    High text quality / graphics can be less so
    No paper curling, edge or otherwise

    Its only light use so refilling toner, etc is not needed.

    Wish list, but not required:-

    Built in rj45 network

    Anything you know of come anywhere near?

    I have a Samsung ML-1750 (probably now superseded). It has worked
    perfectly - no network though.
    At the time I bought it, I was a network administrator, and bought about 15
    of these for my organisation (as stand-alone printers for the machines on
    the network). None of them ever went wrong in the three years that they were
    installed. Print quality and speed are fine.

    We've had one printer per desk for many years, but we only have one colour
    laser. This is connected to one of the PCs and shared over the network that
    way. No need for networking on the printer, but it does require that PC to
    be switched on whenever we want to print in colour.
