Default [Q] Best and fastest pdf reader for Android?

I have tried them all, from EZ pdf reader to mantano and no one is working fine. I have an pdf file which is 48 pages and it takes more than 30 minutes for it to load complety. Isn't there any decent pdf reader (which I hope I missed while searching) that is decent and can render and open big pdf files fast?

Thanks.

Edit: It will mainly be used on my tablet- Xoom.

Have you tried RepliGo PDF Reader? It works great for me. I use it to open heavy PDF files having HD graphics (on my Samsung Galaxy S).
One more thing: 30 minutes is really an overkill. Have you considered reducing load from system as well as converting PDF in another format like epub...

Yes I forgot to mention I also tried Repligo and I had the same outcome...I will try to format it thx for the tip. It's mainly magazines I am trying to read, and I am loading from the system actually. But really do I always need to convert in order to see my pdf files..that is a pain in the ass..

30 min doesn't make sense, I open 1000 page textbooks on my g2x just fine.if the pdf file is five then maybe try a new Rom?

Have you tried Adobe Reader? I used all the time.
I think there is something wrong with your PDF file. Have you tried other PDF files?
