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.

Flexible connectivity for any environment

The KE6900 series can extend and deploy computers with high definition displays across multiple stations in a variety of applications that suit any environment. Expand computer use to stations across multiple rooms with dynamic access.

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.

QuickBooks Online has an ecosystem of applications that integrate all financial and bank related features at one place. It helps in managing finances seamlessly. This software allows you to print checks if you have proper sheet paper. By using this program, you don’t need to depend on banks for checks as you can print them directly. Even you can order personalize Quickbooks checks from https://www.checkomatic.com/ and make your personal identity.
