Slow Network Printing - HP P1100

Post by Tom Hendrick » Fri, 12 Nov 1999 04:00:00

Any one else able to confirm what I believe to be bugs in the HP
Photosmart P1100 drivers?

Works fine, fast, etc. from directly-connected machine.  Works like
frozen molassas from any workgroup network shared-printer connections,
taking literally forever to print.

Win98, or WinNT or whatever, as long as it's going over the network,
it's slow as a dog.  NT reports that the print priority is zero (out of
100), so it seems HP crippled for whatever reason, the drivers over the
network.  Other HP printers (890, original Photosmart, 855) have worked
fine in this environment.

Since the P1000 and HP 970 are essentially the same, have any 970 or
P1000 owners noticed the same?

Any comments would be most appreciated.

The 970s seem to print a lot faster than the P1000 or P1100. I bought 2 970s
and hooked the first one up with a parallel port connection. It bogs down a
P300 system with 92MBs of RAM when it prints. It works a lot faster with the
HP660 drivers so it has to be a driver problem. The slow down happens with
both text and graphics. This has been reported by a number of people.

I'm going to hook the second one up to a new system with USB and see if there
is any improvement in speed.
