    Accepted Solution

    I heard that Postscript gives less errors, so you should go with it.

    See these Wikipedia articles:

    Mostly it comes down to the kind of documents you'll be printing and how error-tolerant you are. Tuxx is correct that Postscript gives less errors. After you peruse the above articles, you'll be in a better position to make your own informed decision.

    In most cases (read multiple users environment)
    - Postscript: Heavy Output (more than 500 page a job) or for a printer that is used by Desigers
    - PCL: standard Windows Applications, high rate of compatibility
