I'm using an HP block which I bought on their cashback offers. Depending on
your budget you could go up or down in price, but I paid £130 - silly money
since it also does duplex. Ethernet and wifi built-in, but you might need
the hplip-firmware package on top of the standard hplip. Works a treat, I
can do network scanning with xsane no problem.
