    Brother Laser! See, I don't even know what it is. That's how much I don't fuss with it. I do ignore the toner warnings :).

    I've been using HP Laser (Color for about 9 years now), mostly because Brother was less out of the box ready with Linux. With HP, every device I typically print from including my phone just works. Windows, Linux, MacOS, Android all load and print without any special issues. I replaced the tonor cartridges once in the past decade, I don't print much, but when I do, it just goes.

    Newer HP multifunction printers need plugins you need to install. It is still easy but no longer plug-and-play.

    My SO's multifunction printer is mainly used for its scan-to-pdf functionality... Generally just put in a thumb drive and scan to image or pdf on the device, it's not used other than that. I don't like having to install extra junk, and don't really need it for printing itself, that and it's ink, which I'm not fond of. I need to find a better spot for it, as it takes up a lot of space for something that only gets used a couple times a year.

    You don't have to convince me on HP Laser, especially a Color Laser :))

    My first printer was a HP Laserjet+ and then HP Laserjet 4m with ethernet.

    I didn't have a printer for a long time after that and the Brother was just to get my family to shut the hell up about printing :))

    Basically, I am jealous of your HP Laser Color but I hate printers :((
