Need list of printers supported by PS (Post Script driver)

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows RT

I need to either get a list or know specifically where to go on the support page to find the specific drivers that are supported by HP printers. I am mainly interested in the list of printers that have post script driver. This means that the raw binary data from a PDF can be sent to the printer via windows print spooler as raw data.

 

This would be for Windows based PCs (7, 10, Server 2008R2, server 2012, etc.)

>> ... have post script driver. This means that the raw binary data from a PDF can be sent to the printer via windows print spooler as raw data ...

 

PDF is similar to PostScript, but it is not exactly the same, so you may find that you need a printer which supports PDF natively, rather than PostScript.

 

... and even for those printers which support PDF-Direct, you have to be aware that different printers may support different version levels  - I've seen  reference to PDF v1.7 with some devices, but only PDF v1.4 on others.

 

 

 

Strictly, it's not a matter  of which drivers are supported, so much as which Page Description Languages (also known as print languages) are supported.

As an example, the following detail is extracted from the  datasheet for Colour Laserjet M477 series printers:

This particular specification doesn't mention the PDF version supported.
