I had a laserjet 5L for a while, small footprint, good quality, quiet and fairly fast if you can get hold of one.

5L is parallel port, I think they switched to USB on 6L. I was using my with a jetdirect network adaptor that work was 'recycling'. You can get USB to parallel port cable but I don't know how well they work.

I've got a couple of LaserJet III's you can have - may need some toner though.

Laserjet III will be parallel port unless they have a jetdirect card in them in which case they will support ethernet as well.

It's easy to share a printer on windows if you want to have more than 1 PC printing to the printer.

Also you can get print server fairly cheap. I got a Sitecom USB print server for £10 from ebay, it has 2 usb ports so can be used with 2 printers, or 1 printer and a USB hard drive to share files. It also handles multi function printers too.

Can it share a parallel printer which I think the lj3 is.

If you don't need the small footprint there are normally loads of refurb Hp 4050/4100/4200's on ebay for about £50. Toner is cheap and I get about 10000 pages out of them. Just make sure it's got a jetdirect card in. For the money they really are great and will happily do a few hundred k pages
