PDF Printer Driver

Editors' Review

by   / February 10, 2015

PDF Printer Driver combines an efficient PDF printing utility with enterprise-level features, like document conversion in a real GUI. Tutorials, technical support, and numerous setup options make it a good choice for businesses and advanced users.

Pros

Main interface: Basic but efficient, PDF Printer Driver's primary layout is enhanced by a toolbar accessing General Settings and Conversion Profiles, as well as Email, SharePoint, OCR, Agent Printers, and Barcode.

Printing Preferences: Default setup enables all Printing Preferences tabs, including business-oriented features like Bates Numbering, Redirect Printing, OCR, and Watermark, but you can exclude any unneeded tabs for efficiency and an uncluttered look.

Conversion Profiles: Creating custom Conversion Profiles for specific document types makes things easy on employees and other users.

SharePoint: Optional Microsoft SharePoint Integration includes server settings, silent uploading, and secure connections.

Cons

Not free: As enterprise software, PDF Printer Driver is extremely inexpensive, but individuals might balk at paying for functionality they don't need, especially with many free alternatives available.

Bottom Line

PDF Printer Driver addresses the shortcomings of driver-style print tools, starting with the one that confuses the most users -- the lack of a proper interface. While most users may not need features like OCR or SharePoint compatibility, they're most welcome where they're most needed.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PDF Printer Driver 14.20.
