I have been using my HP DJ970Cxi without problems for a long time - but
the UNIX drivers still aren't perfect.  To get the best output quality,
I print from a windoze machine through Samba and NetBSD.

I'm just considering getting a HP LJ1200 to replace my 15+-year-old Canon
(which is still working fine, it's just slow with Ghostscript).
