I dig my Lexmark E310:

ulpt0 at uhub0 port 2 configuration 1 interface 0
ulpt0: Lexmark International, Inc. Lexmark Optra E310, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 3, iclass 7/1

That's on an ohci card plugged into my AlphaStation 200.  Combined with
Magicfilter (from pkgsrc) and Samba, it makes quite a nice printer.

Anyway, it also has a parallel port.  So, it'll work either way.  USB
is faster, tho :-)

It does postscript natively, and is pretty inexpensive, and relatively small
and quick.
