Never needed to print a PDF, but this is the best reader you'll ever get.

Much better and lighter on the computer than the Adobe Reader one.

One of the few free PDF readers that aren't bundled with adware or toolbars. Thanks!

Discovered this.
Adopted it over Foxit. It's much faster !
But i'll keep Foxit for when i want to print cause there's a lot more options to print how i like.

Still is the best pdf reader for windows 10. Works surprisingly well with touch. The only downside is that you can't Fill out or annotate files, but still worth an install. You can also open other types of files as well, including .epub files. If you want something a little heaver but with annotations and self-fill spots, I would recommend pdf x-change editor. The only reason that I don't use it is because touch scrolling is poor.

It's lighter and faster than Foxit Reader or Adobe Reader. It's simple, and open source as well. Essentially everything most people would ever need in a PDF reader while remaining light, and simple to use.

Hi. I just tested it and it is fast ! ;) (it seems that the print bug was fixed in the end of 2010 release). ;)

I never tested out the printing, but the lackluster bookmark support made me instantly uninstall

OpenSource, fast, portable, slim - what do we want more?
Great PDF-Viewer for people who don't like bloatware.

Sumatra PDF is great for viewing, but really bad at printing. It expands the data to huge bmp's that cause my pc to halt to a grind (uses all RAM and starts trashing disk). Takes ages to print anything bigger than a page! Use Foxit Reader or something else for printing.
