Thanks for the help. I whittled down the list to just two:
Brother HL-L6200DW
Canon ImageCLASS LBP251DW
The Canon has better user reviews, but I assume you think the driver is subpar, so guess that leaves the Brother. Okay, so unless you warn me off, I'll buy the Brother in a couple days.

Maybe I should do a separate post for this, but could you check this out, and tell me if you think this offers good Linux drivers, or not:

Last month I bought a Canon Pixma TS9020 (after my tech guy did his housecall), so its not set up yet, and I want to have everything ready for him. Will these drivers work, or do I need to keep looking? If I need to keep looking, what exactly am I looking for?
