If you are buying (or have) a 5262 printer you should be aware of how various print bands affect the lpm speed. The 5262 is rated at 650 lpm. The "default" print band is the 96 character band; believe it or not this print band causes the printer to run at about 350 lpm! There are other print bands available that run faster. For instance, the 48 character band runs at the rated speed for the printer, however, it may not have all the characters you need. The best all- around print band is the 63 character enhanced band. This runs at about 625 lpm.
