What is the best small market laser printer for envelopes?

I'm looking for a relatively cheap printer that can auto feed a small stack of #10 envelopes and print them quickly without creases or sealing.  Labels will not work for this application, nor will switching to a windowed envelope.  There has got to be something out there that can do this.

Printing to a stack of envelopes is not something cheap laser printers like to do. Most cheap printers will only print envelopes from the manual feed, one at a time. You could look at something like the Xerox Phaser 4510 (list price around US$1000), which can feed envelopes from any tray. Some more expensive printers can have a dedicated envelope tray.

Also, feeding envelopes trough most lasers will crease them, unless the printer can feed the envelope flap-first (which the Phaser 4510 will do).

What is your budget for this?

Thanks for the help, but I found that a injet (Epson NX515) will run slowly, but print them reliably and can be autofed with about 20 envelopes at a time.  You can even keep the stack full while it prints and it won't jam or stop printing.  It'll take a bit longer to get the work done, but no frustration.
