At least for Epson inkjets. I do not know of the overwhelming amount of 
new adjustable options allows to tune the PCL lasers to give a 
significantly better quality. If you find appropriate settings please 
post them here.

Have you already compared "accurate" and "well-tempered"? Which one 
gives the better results? Try also to tune the "gamma" option of CUPS 
(see http://localhost:631/sum.html or http://www.cups.org/sum.html) if 
one of the two gives you too light or too dark images. Post your results
