Which multi-function printer should I get?

Hi, I've been doing a lot of research on linux compatible, multi-function (all-in-one) printers. I've sort of converged on two that I like:

HP PSC 2175
HP PSC 6110 (I like this one b/c of the autofeeder)

I run Suse 9.2, and the 2175 has full/perfect support according to the Suse Hardware Database, whereas the 6110 only has partial support.

I was wondering what experiences people had installing and using these printers under Suse. I would really like to have a multi-function device that has an autofeeder, but at the same time it would be great if it worked "perfectly." Then again, if partial support means that something "small" does not work too well, then maybe I can live with that.

Also, if anyone can suggest any other multi-function printers (especially with autofeeders but this is not crucial) that run perfectly (or near to it) on Suse I would much appreciate it.

Thank you for your time.

I'd go for the newer model. Anyway most HP multifunction printers work fine, but I had a few problems with getting my scanner working so it could be a possible problem for you.
