Summary: I have a HP LaserJet 4L which I love. It prints perfectly after sitting for half a year without use. Unfortunately, I cannot get it to work with my new PC through a USB connection. The Brother HL-2140 is the lowest price laser printer I found with a fully enclosed paper tray - important for a printer that sits for months. It'll spew 10 pages before the HP prints the first page. Print quality is comparable with the HP. Text quality is the same as far as my eyes can tell.
