Laserjet 4 series was the bomb. I still have an old junker that's pushin out 10 to 20 pages a day...
Your number one criteria for selecting a laser printer should be toner costs. One of the great things about the Samsung units (at least the ML-1710 I got a few years back) is that the factory toner carts have a plug that allow for re-filling without any drilling. So rather that spend $70 on a new cart, I just pay $6 for raw toner on eBay. It is definitely worth researching refil options before making a selection!
I also have to vote for the HP. I have a HP 5 with extra paper trays and I bought it used about 7 years ago (from a business). I have personally ran approx 5,000 pages through it and have yet to have a single problem.
It replaced a HP 4 which I ran at least 20,000 pages through (used to use it to print flyers for a business). I ended up selling it when I got the 5.
I have also had a Lexmark Laser (e810) which was just a rebadged samsung. It lasted about 6 mo before it just quit.
you just cant go wrong with the older hp lasers

I also used to have an Epson Laser...
It was something like a Epson Laser II or something like that. Used it for 15 years, and one day, it just blew the **** up... Toner all over my wall... It was crazy..
****, I bought a LaserJet 4P for 550 bucks way back when I bought a 486 PC and that was like 13-14 years ago. Still works like a charm.
Didn't use much in the past couple years but before that it was heavily used.
