HPLJ P2055d -- ProRes 1200 dpi vs. 1200 dpi 180 lpi vs. 1200 dpi 141 lpi?

My HPLJ P2055d includes these print resolutions:

 

ProRes 1200 dpi

ProRes 1200 dpi 180 lpi

ProRes 1200 dpi 141 lpi

 

What's the difference between these three settings?

 

Which produces the best print quality?

 

Thanks.

The following is a snipit from a manual from a different printer model but should still apply to your printer.  Basically the ProRes 1200 (180 lpi) should provide the best quality but will require the longest time to print.

 

 

"The default setting for Print Quality is FastRes 1200 for the HP PCL 6 print driver or 600 dpi for the
PCL 5e and PS emulation print drivers.
This setting controls resolution, which refers to the number of dots per inch (dpi) used to print the
page. As resolution is increased, the quality (clarity and visual appeal) of print on the page is
improved. However, higher resolution may also result in longer printing times. The following options
are available in the Print Quality drop-down box:
 
■  ProRes 1200 (180 lpi): Prints using a resolution of 1200 x 1200 with 180 lines per inch (lpi). This
prints slower than other resolutions, but has the best print quality.
 
■  ProRes 1200 (141 lpi): Prints using a resolution of 1200 x 1200 with 141 lines per inch (lpi). It
prints slower than other resolutions, but has the best print quality.
 
■  FastRes 1200: Prints using a resolution of 1200 x 600. It is faster than full 1200 x 1200
resolution, but has a slightly lower print quality.
 
■  600 dpi: Prints using standard 600 dpi resolution."
