I recently purchased a HP LaserJet 2025dn and first installed it on a 2003 server for our network to use easily. That works out ok, but was a little slow for most (think that was just network related) but the main computer that would be using the printer would spool/print very very slow over the network.
So I moved the printer directly to that computer, reinstalled software/drivers and attempted to print with it connected via USB. Word documents take for ever to print even with just plain text. Excel documents print a lot quicker but still 45 seconds or so. I cannot print a PDF. If a word document has any type of image in it, I'm waiting a good 3-5 minutes.
While waiting, the printer que window just says spooling - printing.
A simple test page from printer properties prints right away, a one line text document out of notepad prints right away. The printer came with firmware 20110212 which is the most current. Printer has 128MB Memory.
The software / drivers were installed off of the cd that came with the printer.
