We have a HP Color LaserJet 4650 running a JetDirect model J3113A JD33, ROM G.07.19, Revision G.08.49, connected at 100Mbps. The memory has been maxed out at 544MB
However, this particular printer seems to have more than it's fair share of slowdowns. No more errors than any other printer in the office, just sometimes it'll take 30 seconds to output a page. This is especially an issue when, once a year or so, we need to print several dozen copies of 40 to 60 page documents for conferences.
The entire office network runs at gigabit, and runs well.
In considering all the various ways we can coax more power out of this machine, I'd like to know, is upgrading this printer to a JetDirect that can run gigabit likely to increase the performance of the machine? Are there internal bottlenecks that will make this a non-solution?
