Problem: Printing is too slow.

Solution: Rev up printer performance--and save ink in the process--by reducing print quality for everyday output. While printer settings vary by model, here's how to switch to draft-printing mode in most Windows apps. Select Print and Properties, and then look for a setting that reduces print quality. With the HP Photosmart 8450, for instance, change the default print quality setting from Normal to Fast Draft (click screen-shot at right). Other speedup suggestions: Print pages from websites without graphics, and add RAM to your printer, if possible.

THis tip is definitely welcome. However, with this method you potentially run the risk of outputting poor quality. While Draft mode is excellent for both speed and cartridge conservation there is a downside to it. Adding Ram to the printer will absolutely increase the output as the printer can access and store more information in regards to what it is going to print next. This is a very informative post. Thanks Ashesh! :)
