What are the difference between PCL Driver and PS(PostScript) Driver?

During this initial set-up and installation process of your printer, you can choose driver type you are going to install if you are a Windows users.
While PCL driver enables access to the maximum number of printer features, it offers limited capabilities. However, for everyday office color printing, this driver is recommended.

 

If you are printing color graphics or are performing desktop publishing, we recommend using our PS (PostScript) driver. Ideal for both Mac and Windows, this driver produces the most accurate color output.
