In my opinion, the biggest reason to go to LTSP 5 is for newer video drivers and for easier local applications. I wouldn't switch for a printer, especially your printer since it is cheap to replace and has already outlasted its expected life.
I do recommend you start experimenting w/ LTSP 5 so that you'll be ready someday when you need it. But right now it doesn't sound like you really need it.
