The Krocera FS-1120D is quite good, PB have this Samsung too, but for that price I seriously doubt it duplexes natively, even though they say it does. If it's for real then that is damn cheap.

I got a Brother 2250DN ( network attached) that does Double sided, Advert From PB Here (http://pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=PTRBRT1224373&name=BROTHER-HL2250DN-26ppm-Duplex-32MB-Laser-Printer-E) they also have the slightly cheaper one Here (http://pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=PTRBRT1672906&name=BROTHER-HL2240D-24ppm-Mono-Duplex-Laser-Printer).
The double sided has a few settings, either auto or manual, its very good, hit print, set to duplex, and away it goes, prints one side drags it back in and prints the other, then spits it out again :)

They are a good price, how many reams do you get to a cartridge?

Have not had it that long, almost gone through a full ream, just had a look at the page count/toner usage, and its about the same as the other brother I used to have ages ago & the lexmark I replaced. This one has the standard Size (one it came with).

With the coverage I normally do per page,they both did approximately on the standard toner 1 carton = 5 reams or close to it, and this is looking similar @ 4 1/2-5. (and thats not on the saver mode).

Often the others would go on for a month or more when saying it was empty, give the toner a bit of a shake, and get a few more out of it :D

Bit like my lexmark Colour laser/scanner - the magenta has been showing empty for 2-3 months now, but still prints OK. (just - but it is showing signs of actually being empty)

Not sure if it's still available, but my Canon LBP3300 has served me well for the last 4 years or so - the printer was cheap, toner is really cheap, and does automatic duplexing.

I recently bought a Brother MFC-7860DW (network attached) which does the job nicely. I'm happy with it. I went for the multi-function because we do occasionally need to deal with faxes at home but it had a very similar edition without the fax. Possibly the model that Wainuitech pointed out.
cheers
