Factors Affecting Printer Performance
Many factors affect a print job. They include the print speed (stated in number of pages per 
minute), the media used, download time, and printer processing time.
The computer download time and printer processing time are affected by several factors 
including:
Printer memory
Connection type (network, parallel or USB)
Network operating system
Printer configuration
File size and type of graphics
Computer speed
Note
Additional printer memory (RAM) may improve overall printer functions, but will not 
increase the pages per minute (ppm) ability of the printer.
