Re: At the risk of topic drift, can I ask for a recommendation for a mono laser...

I'll second that; I acquired a Brother mono duplex networked laser that a business client was throwing out as it was "constantly jamming". I looked where it was jamming, the toner cartridge, installed a new one for £10, now it works perfectly. Very fast start from sleep, no fuss, and it has two paper drawers for the icing on the cake. It had only had 5 toners, so plenty of life left in the critical/expensive consumables. It now saves wear and tear on my ageing colour laser.

In case you're wondering, the client had already bought a replacement before calling me in, they just wanted me to install the new one, so I just offered to dispose of the old one on the off chance that it was salvageable.
