The good news is that there are number third-party folks who make Brother toner cartridges and brother imaging drums. On Amazon.com there's a brand called LINKYO and they make really good toner cartridges they also sell imaging drums there as well. I think with that you'd be set for the next eight or more years. : )

Much to my shock, it started printing out queued jobs from Windows, Mac and an IBM mainframe immediately! I did not have a chance to update drivers or anything at that point. That said I have not tested that since then. : )

>>> If all else fails driver-wise, having PostScript or PCL to fall back on is really nice, especially compared to the frustration of a printer that you can't use to ... print. It's one of the reasons I like and prefer HP's printers. I don't know that *all* including the cheapest cheap-out inkjet accept generic PostScript, but all the HP printer's I've worked with will do PostScript.
