LaserJet is actually a brand name assigned by the manufacturer to its laser printer product line. Although initially introduced in a time when computing environments were limited to business enterprises. Now the HP LaserJet 2300 Series and similar hardware components can be found in most home computing environments primarily for their durability and cost effective deployment. The device driver for this particular hardware component is used both as an identification and a layout file for the host computer system. This means that it provides the necessary details on the driver version, hardware class, provider, and GUID among others. The data is then stored into the central registry database and made available to all installed software applications. The information can also be used by the underlying operating system environment to accurately evaluate driver updates based on their compatibility and necessity for the supported device.
