We have a dozen or so HP printers, all different models some networked and some local. We are using PCL5 or PCL6 drivers downloaded from HPs website. When printing a PDF document it is extremely slow. You can hear the printer fire up and it spits out one page and then goes quiet. Anywhere from 2-5 seconds later it fires up again and spits out one more page and then goes quiet again. When we're printing large documents (often 50-100 pages) it takes for ever. I've downloaded PS drivers from HP's site and this corrects the adobe printing problem but then documents from Word, Excel, etc. don't print correctly. We get gibberish and formatting problems. I've setup alternate printers so each user can select the PS printer for adobe docs and the PCL version for everything else but this gets confusing to them so i'm looking for a better solution.
