Print the test page of all these printers. Does it say something about 
the PDF/PostScript engine (RIP) and its version?
Printers that have an Adobe RIP usually have an Adobe sticker. But I’d 
guess that none of the mentioned printers has one of these. That doesn’t 
mean their RIP is worse.

How do you send the files “directly” to the printer? Copy to lpt queue?
In ye olden times you often used a PS downloader for such, but if it 
goes via the OS, there’s some driver involved.
