Default [Q] best (fasest) pdf reader

hey guys,
anyone any intel about pdf reader? i'm using mantano reader pro so far. mainly for bigger documents (100-200mb ish)... i'm wondering if there's a faster reader out there after i tried a couple other ones like ebookdroid, ezpdf, radaee and so forth, especially for this type of hardware in our tf700
cheers

Ironically, Dropbox previews PDFs faster for me

I tried Moon reader and PDF MAX 4. PDF MAX 4 is fast in rendering the PDF files.
Moon Reader has got some jerks while going to next page unless somebody can let me know whether some settings is required (There is no page flip animation or anything and PDF render quality is Low)

Good point on Moon reader is it can read also epubs in addition to PDFs

tested all the apps mentioned in this thread, but i'm still not satisfied... so far mantano is still the best bet for having the best compromise.

unfortunately apperantly none of those pdf viewers out there is fast enough to not having that half second delay (or even more) when flipping through the pages.
basicly i'm looking for that in specific. i wanna be able to browse through a document without any delay (especially when i'm looking for something specific in any document and therefor not reading every single page).

maybe anyone got some experiences about that with paid apps? so far i haven't had a look into those...

Dumb suggestion, have you tried the Adobe reader, for me it seems to be one of the fastest (I used to avoid it from years of PC/Windows prejudice)?

yeah tried it aswell... it'a actually not the slowest of all you're right about that, but still not fast enough for what it should be in my opinion, plus it lacks in features

is it just me thinking that way? maybe i'm just expecting too much? a device with that hardware built-in should in my opinion be capable of scrolling through pages without having a delay (even if it's just a tiny one. i'm totally aware of that) with the matching app of course...

i mean, i'm not having such "problems" on my notebook either, and the hrdware in there isn't much better

the hardware is capable... but doesn't mean the software is optimize to every device...
