I'm looking for a printer that will print on DL AND duplex.  It can be
either laser or inkjet.

I prefer a price range AUD$400-$1000.

If the printer has a straight paper path, or can duplex in one pass
(does that exist?) I would be particularly keen to hear, as a straight
paper path means I can use thicker paper without jams.

(DL is an A4 folded in three - standard mail format for Australia).

Hi tocker-ga,
I did find printers that can duplex in one pass such as the OCE 3100 printer:

Looking at past eBay auctions, printers such as the OCE 3100 are quite
expensive(A little bit over $5,000 US)

However, I did find many printers that support Automatic Duplexing,
(most seem to have two trays)

HP Business Inkjet 1200D Printer w. Duplex
[Price: $335.80 AUD]

Canon PIXMA iP5000 USB/Direct Printer
[Price: $310.00 AUD]

Canon PIXMA iP600D USB/Direct Printer
[Price: $443.20 AUD]

Canon PIXMA iP8500 USB/Direct Printer
[Price: $539.70 AUD]

I can't guarantee there won't be anymore paper jams but based on the
designs of these Duplex printers,
I'm inclined to go with Auto-Duplex printers which prints to the
bottom instead of to the top.

Please let me know if you have anymore questions.

Thank you very much.

Thanks for the link on the OCE3100.  I expected there would be
something about - I've just never heard of it.  It's a bit pricey, but
maybe thats to be expected.  If I get no other answers, I will award
yours the winner.

Just to clarify on one point:
The normal printers will almost certainly have troubles with duplexing
because it is smaller paper, and the paper is going to be a different
