This Laser Printer product series is noted for having an automatic duplexing feature as well as the ability to carry a full ream of paper in its drawer. In fact, the Brother HL-6050 series is the first product in its category to offer the computer market with the ability to store 500 pages in its paper drawer. The automatic duplexing feature that is incorporated into the printing hardware provides the computer user with the flexibility of generating printed output using both sides of the paper. In this context, one of the more important roles of the device driver is to receive commands from the software application that is requesting a print job. These commands are then translated into a form which the device can understand and execute. This means that if the computer user specifies via the software user interface that the output should be duplex printing, the Brother HL-6050 series will process the information in such a way that they will be chronologically arranged at both sides of the paper.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Another role of the device driver is to monitor the amount of paper in the drawer. Since one of the advantages of these types of printers is to allow the computer user to automatically print multiple copies it is important that there is enough paper to be used. The device driver for the Brother HL-6050 series will alert the computer user once the paper in the drawer runs out. This will provide the computer user with enough time to reload the drawer. Installation of the correct printer driver for this hardware also means that when the printing is stopped due to lack of paper or some type of printer error, the computer user still has the convenience to resume the printing approximately at the point where it has stopped. This feature gives the computer user with the flexibility of choosing specific pages or contents that will be outputted by the hardware. The Brother HL-6050 series can also be deployed in a network environment. The device driver in this instance will allow access to the network clients that possess the necessary privileges. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother HL-6050 series errors before installing any driver updates.
