The important factor with the older HP mono laser printers is that it should have an 'M' in the model info, such as 5MP or 6MP, which indicates it has a 'PS' SIMM in the memory port, or built-into the hardware. I don't know why they chose the letter 'M' instead of the letter 'P' but they did.
I use a HP 2500 Colour LaserJet, which has both Centronic and USB, and if you fit a compatible HP network card then it can be linked via a Ethernet Network to several printers, this works really well with the current Beta printer system by zukow
, so you can print directly from many applications, like PageStream, OWB, VPDF, etc.
I also have a HP 5M Colour Laserjet which has Centronics and a Network card fitted, and again, though I use it less frequently it has produced output when I required to use that specific printer, but as it does not have a USB port as such it gets considerably less used.
The HP 2500 Colour Laserjet can be picked up for little money, but it does have some issues that can make you think it is useless, and yet it is usually only due to a very thin piece of foam having become sticky and causes the toner carousel to under/over-run it's timing point with the paper/laser and so produces little yellow or no print at all. However, with a bit of duct tape in the right place, where the foam has perished, the printer can be brought back to life. This issue can of course be 'Googled', but once you know how to fix it these printers work really well at 600dpi colour laser output with MorphOS.
I am not sure which other colour laser printers work as well as this printer with MorphOS, but I have no real regrets of buying mine.
