Need printer recommendation for printing checks from QuickBooks

I have a client has a Brother HL-2270DW that is used primarily for printing checks from QuickBooks (along with some typical printing).  Having lots of problems with the Brother because the manual feed only takes 1 page and is unreliable, and the paper tray orientation isn't compatible with check-printing.  Paper goes in it face down and bottom-first, so you have to manually re-sort a stack of checks to have them print in the right order.  This is a deal-breaker.

We need an inexpensive (around $100) laser printer that feeds checks from the tray correctly for QuickBooks, or that has a very good manual feed that can handle about 20 checks at a time.

Any recommendations?

I doubt you are going to find a laser printer for $100 and if you do, it will be a cheap one your customer won't be happy with.

You might want to look on eBay or Craig's List where you might get a less expensive used printer.  This way you can get a better quality used printer.  I would stick with HP.

We've had great results with ~$100 Brother lasers like the 2270, it just doesn't fit this need because of the paper feed orientation.

Can you recommend a specific HP model?  Looking for a recommendation based on personal experience with this particular use case (printing multiple checks from QuickBooks).

We have several HP Laserjet 1022 printers that work well for printing checks.  I don't know if that model is still available, but any of their small-form-factor laser printers will probably have similar paper handling.

Thanks.  Got some other feedback on this as well and am looking at the HP LaserJet 1606 as a possible solution.  Will update with results once we get it.

OK to close.  Client got an HP LaserJet 1606, which seems to be doing the trick.
