We have been using an HP 1600C for a while now and it gives very good
results and is quite fast.

Personally though, I'm not convinced that the printers have to be
postscript, since before we got our printer we were using an old black and
white inkjet that certainly wasn't postscript and it worked fine, if a
little slowly.
