HP Officejet 6500 E709n Printer - Very Slow

Has anyone had problems with this printer being slow?

When I send any document to the printer it takes 60 seconds to start printing. When I changed the settings to have the document sent directly to the printer it prints immediately but I wait 60 second before I can do any thing else. Right now this is an expensive paper weight as I don't have time to wait for each printed document.

Do I have a faulty printerDo I have a computer problem? Is this just normal for this printer?

I have the same problem. It has to go through the hp software before it prints. I'm ready to take it back. Are you using Windows 7 and usb?

I'm using Windows XP and wireless.  It doesn't make any difference how it is hooked up it works the same.

It is a poor excuse for a printer.  I would never recommend it to anybody.  I have contacted HP and got no satisfaction.
