Good choice for generic postscript printer

I have a LJ P2015d, and using the model-specific PCL6 driver, it 
sometimes throws an Insufficient Memory error with certain jobs.  So I 
also installed the (non-model-specific) Universal Print Driver PCL5 
driver, and I use that successfully for those problem jobs.

Perhaps you can try a similar approach with postscript -- I believe 
their UPD also supports that.

[I tried to check just now on the specific 1320 driver offerings, but 
the page was unavailable (Error: system-websrv_unavail)].
