How to Print Faster with Your Laser Printer

Various Tips to Print Faster with Your Laser Printer 6 Tips on How to Print Faster Printers have come a long way, especially in speed. Even inexpensive laser printers these days can print an average of 25 to 30 pages per minute, whereas a few years ago, the number was about 4 to 5 pages. If you find your laser printer is not printing near its stated capacity, there is likely a bottleneck in the process worth investigating. Six common types are: 1. Reduce Your Quality Setting Print at the quality setting appropriate for your needs. If you’re printing a 100 page rough draft that you’re gonna toss out anyway, then go for the lowest setting. Not only will you save time, but money and less wear and tear. 2. Split Up Your Larger Documents Printing large batches with your laser printer at one time can overload the buffer or memory on your printer or computer. Try splitting up larger batches, especially those involving high DPI color pictures. 3. Increase Your RAM Many printers have expansion slots where you can insert additional memory. Find out if your printer does, and if so, invest the small amount necessary to increase the RAM available. 4. Ensure Your Computers Cache is used Right click the Print Under Printer->Proper ties->Advanced. There should be a checkbox next to ‘keep printed documents’. This will keep printed documents available for follow up printing, saving time for your print jobs. 5. Use the Fastest Connection Possible Monitor the difference in printing speed between your computer and laser printer. If you notice a faster printing with a direct USB cable, then by all means go with it. 6. Make Sure Your Computer is Not Slowing the Printer In addition to your printer, ensure your computer is optimized. Ensure open applications are closed, unused programs are uninstalled, your drive is defragmented, and most importantly, you have sufficient RAM on your computer.  (Mar 11, 2013 | post #1)
