I would take a Brother over a Lexmark. Lexmark printers are pretty crappy with Linux and Brother does have support for linux. I do own an older Brother AIO without any issues.

I just know that Lexmark is one of the worst when it comes to the price of ink.

Brother is pretty much all I use at home and its our new standard at work as well. We've got a combined 7 Brother printers, laser and ink and 4+ years old for a couple of them all running great.

FYI the new brother drivers have caused problems, others had the same issue. I've rolled back the driver and its working, but what a pain.
