Drivers Explained

The KX drivers are indeed the recommended drivers offering full functionality, the KPDL also provides the full features. The difference is that the KX driver uses PCL-XL (PCL with Kyocera extensions) by default but can be downgraded in the driver to standard PCL, which offers better compatibility with old applications. The KPDL driver is a Postscript emulation (rather than PCL) and doesn't really offer any benefits over the PCL, unless you're using professional level graphics eg trapping/colour transparency/colour overlaying etc.

So in short go for the latest v6 KX driver everytime.
