How fast can you print on Ultimaker S3

by teathings

I am considering an UM S3. I have heard critiques call it slow. So I took a benchy STL and sliced it on Cura. I saw that if I set the "Fast 0.2mm" profile it would take the same amount of time as other printers I have used (1 hour and 14 mins). This confused me as to why UM S3 is called slow.
Can someone with an Ultimaker, ideally S3 comment on this from their experience?

Ultimaker S5 printing lines that do not appear in slicer.

by RamiR9

I am trying to print a simple part and the printer seems to print extra lines toward the corner that do not appear in the slicer.
Did anyone have this problem before ? What would be the solution ?
