Hi

When I install drivers for a printer you are always suppose to install a driver according to os and 32/64 bit version. No problem. But then you got the choice between pcl5/pcl6. What is the difference between these two? How do I know which to use for my computer? Is this dependent on some setting on the printer? Please help!

I have always used PCL5, not for any reason but always have.

I think it is personal preference unless you have been told by the software distributor to specifically use one or the other.
