Lexmark´s C500n cannot keep up the printing speed of about 32 seconds for one color-page in A4 format. The printer spends a lot of time not printing, displaying "warming up", and meaning cooling down. The frequency of these time-outs increases the longer you print.
The printer shows a similar performance printing text.
