Konica Minolta PagePro 1350W low print speed
Print speeds will vary based on a lot of factors. First thing to note is that your printer should have a first print time of about 20 seconds. This means the first page should take about 20 seconds before it starts printing and than will print at rated engine speed.
Secondly, depending on the type of paper and thickness your speed may slow down. Most printers will slow down for a thicker paper. In general the thicker the paper the more time it needs for the toner to fuse or melt to the paper.
The size of the paper will also greatly affect the speed too. Manufacturers spec their machines to letter size in the portrait orientation (the leading edge is the 11 inch or long side). In general for legal you will have a 15 to 20% reduction in speed and for 11 x 17 you can have as much as a 40% or more reduction in speed.
Print resolution may affect the speed. Usually most printers will print faster in a draft mode. This may also reduce the amount of toner used.
How do you connect to your printer? Different cables all have different speeds. For that matter is there an upgrade to the RAM? This could also change the speed of the print job. However these should not affect the final speed too much.
So to get the "rated" speed of your printer you will need to use standard letter paper with the long edge leading. Remember don't use thick paper and use a draft mode or lower resolution if possible to get the best speed.
I hope this helps.
