Default Printer Search Again

We are having more trouble now with our Xerox DC230 and are thinking we ought to be able to find a new printer for about the same price as it will take to fix this one. Xerox's service charges are outrageous, whether or not you have a service contract. We will not be buying another Xerox printer. Does anyone have any recommendations for multifunction laser printers these days?

Laser (Monochrome)
Resolution - 600 dpi
Decent memory, whatever that is these days
Speed (12-20 ppm?)
Reliability (no convoluted paper paths, fussy paper handling)
Service readily available, preferably at less than $275 minimum!
Print and copy (fax optional but these days seems to be included most times anyway)

Ethernet - could be essential for a particularly large printer
Multipage document feeder
Collate and staple
Image once, copy multiple times
Multiple paper trays

I don't really have a price range in mind yet because I don't know what's out there. My internet searches always turn up a zillion printers, many of which are obsolete machines that in fact aren't readily available. This afternoon I finally bookmarked seven or eight printers (out of four or five times that many) that I thought merited further research before giving up.

I may have omitted some needs/wants. Ask away. Any recommendations much appreciated.
