Thank you, Jim. That is a great place to start. 

Samsung and Brother models received good reviews from Consumer Reports. However, in the specs, they don't go higher than OS 10.11.. So it's nice to hear that they are working with the newer Mac OSs.

Very much appreciated,

Hi Linda,

After the MacOS stopped supporting my ancient Apple Laserwriter 4/600PS (which still works perfectly after more than 20 years), I tried a couple of different HP's and hated them. I had frequent paper jams and constant communication problems. Print jobs would just disappear into the ether. I had to frequently reboot the printers to get them to work.

After giving up on HP, I bought a Samsung a few years ago and I've been very happy with it. The model is ML-2851ND, although I doubt that specific model is still available. It's a basic 8.5x11" black and white laser printer with duplexing capability. The N in the model name means it is network capable (via an Ethernet connection). Because it's a few years old, it didn't have a wireless option. I suspect some of their newer models do.

Although it's a few years old, it works fine with my iMac running OS 10.13 (High Sierra).
