All driver features should work on the PCL drivers, and for most office related print jobs or regular prints from webpages and all that suff they should be better, as in faster and create smalller jobs.
PS drivers we mostly suggest to use for actual post script jobs, like pritning PDF's or other adobe PS type documents an EPS files and such. As a postscript file can often be sent directly to the printer without any driver intereference if you use postscript, or the driver will convert it to a PS job with very small changes to the size of the job from the doucment.
While sending a PS/PDF document to a pritner with a PCL driver to driver will need to rework the entire job into PCL wich can turn a 2-5 MB document into a several hundred MB printjob, causing lots of network traffic probably a slow print, and at worst it won't print because the printer doesn't have enough memory to handle it.
