"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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
