Got it pretty much narrowed down to the HP M451DN and Xerox 6500DN. I’m leaning towards the Xerox. What I don’t understand is why so many Xerox Phasers are listed as “Mostly” working on They have native postscript and list Linux/Unix among their officially supported operating systems. Perhaps it is something like not being able to install a toner-monitoring app. If that was the case I could live with it.

Regarding Adobe postscript vs emulation, I decided it didn’t matter. At least a couple people said they preferred the non-Adobe interpreter. Most of the complaints were coming from people printing postscript generated from Adobe applications, so of course the Adobe interpreter probably works better with those. As a side note, I found out most of the non-Adobe interpreters are supplied by Xionics (now Oak Technology).
