If you have to pay for the toner out of your own
wallet I'd go with Brother. Can't beat $70 to print
6700 pages.  Just make sure a high yield toner is
available for the model.  (The difference between low
and high yield toner is usually $10, but almost twice
the output on hy)

Brother HL5140 + 3 hy toner catridges = ($450 +
$paper)/20,000 sheets (lifetime of drum) => price per
sheet, plus $electricity of course.

HL5140 emulates PCL6.
