    Hi there,
    I like to read sheet music on my iPad 1 through "PDF reader" and "PDFsheetmusic" but there is a long delay when navagating to the next page. will the iPad 2 be any faster for this?

    Does iBooks not render them properly?
    On the few PDF readers that I've tried, iBooks has been the fastest on my iPad-1.

    Try using ForScore, it's probably the best iPad sheet music reader.

    using goodreader it read my pdfs without crashing (a prob i sometimes have with the ipad 1), and it read pdfs faster. in my opinion, the speed isn't enough to justify an upgrade, though. there is still a noticeable lag. perhaps optimizing your files / reducing them will speed it up (no matter which one you use).
