Check the settings you used to create the PDF file.
The size depends on the resolution and stuff.
When I create files for the printer they can be many many times larger than
when I create files for web access.
Your control will depend on how you create your PDF files. With Acrobat and
some drivers you have more control than with the cheapies.
