HP LaserJet 4000 Series Printers

The HP LaserJet 4000 series printers are similar to the LaserJet 5/5M
printers in their design and PCL feature set, with increased font
support and 600 dpi support in PCL 5 (the printer offers 1200 dpi in
PCL 6). The printers support a very similar set of paper sizes. (Refer
to Table 1-1, HP LaserJet Printer Feature Comparison, for the specific
PCL implementation.)

Note

The highest resolution you can access with PCL 5 is 600 dpi.
