on). It took 15 seconds to spool and 10:53 to print.
    I used 1440 dpi and High Speed off, but with the Automatic 
setting. I don't know if that makes any difference. >>

I did a test tonight. using a 15mb test file, printed to 8x10 took 5.5 
seconds to spool and 11:17 to print.  This was on a Mac Power Center Pro with 
a 450mhz G3 card.  The spooling drives are a stripped pair of Seagate 
Cheetahs.  I was also able to print the same file to the 1270 and to an 870 
at the same time.  The 1270 took 11:25 to print and the 870 took 12:40 while 
both printers were printing simultaniously.
