    This may be a shot in the dark, but there are fuser temp and idle settings that effect print speed. Run a non-default smc and see if any of these have been taken out of specs. After re-reading your last post, this is probably not the case. 25 seconds for network printing = network issue I would say.
    NEVER ASSUME ANYTHING

    not to hijack a tread but is JAVA the issue with the c3003 taking so long to load all options on full restart ?

    My experience is that if JAVA is enabled, you cannot get into most SP and User Tools options until it finishes loading (abut 5 minutes).

    Update:

    I have asked the IT to trace where the port is connected and try to change it. Was waiting for his tracing tool and there it goes. When he changed the port, it worked like charm.

    Thanks for all your suggestions. Highly appreciated!

    The PDF was the scanned document from the device. If you compare the print speed from a word-converted PDF, it prints fast within 2 seconds. Tried printing thru my cable and got the same slow result.

    The printer driver is a UPD since the device is connected to a Print Management software.

    *it prints slow on scanned documents only!

    I have simulated the same document to an older device with the same print driver and guess what, it prints within 4 seconds! I called up the IT to try to install the normal PCL driver from ricoh to test it. Awaiting for his input as I am on my way to visit the site.

    We were having this exact issue on a Ricoh MP C4503 with Word file (with Pics) and PDF's after much testing we just found the issue.

    Go to web Image Monitor
    Configuration
    Interface settings
    change ethernet speed from 100Mbs full duplex to Auto Select: Enable 1Gbps

    before a Word Doc of 8.7mb was taking a minute or more to spool, after it took about 15 seconds and no pausing at the machine.

    Hope this helps
