Epson Stylus Color 740i Ink Jet Printer

Selected FAQ

Printing from my Macintosh is too slow. How can I increase the print speed?
Printing is totally dependent on the speed of the computer it's attached to. When printing in the highest quality mode, it might take 40 minutes to print a 5 meg photo from Photoshop running on a Mac IIci. The same file prints in 5 minutes on aPowerMac 7100.

The printer only has a buffer to receive processed information from the Mac. Allocate more memory to the applications you're printing from, it'll help them process the information properly. The applications usually have bare minimums to run. Double or triple the current preferred size, you should see a print speed increase. If you have the extra memory you can go beyond these specifications, of course. If you're using background printing, turn it off or allocate between 3-5000k to the Epson Monitor 2.
