We have a Brother 2070N and it works great.  CUPS sees it and
autoconfigures it, no additional work required. It's also incredibly
stingy on ink -- I think it took two years for the initial starter
cartridge (which is nowhere near full) to run out. I think ours is
about three years old now, and it's starting to have some feed
problems -- sometimes the first page after the printer is powered
on gets stuck or won't feed properly and we have to fish it out and
try again. That's too bad but seems to be par for the course with
cheap home printers -- my HP inkjet does the same thing, and it's a
lot newer than the Brother.

I'm surprised the 2070N doesn't google better -- I've posted about
it on SVLUG, and seen other people post praise for it too.
