Hard to believe there's so many people completing Naxx 25 with in 30 days a dinging 80, in fact the highest number (it's called the mode, I believe) is at about 20 days.I guess it's two kinds of people: 1, the Ensidia type min maxers rolling through in their Sunwell gear and 2. people being carried through.Myself, it was 4 months on my main, 40 and 17 days and counting on my alts (no naxx-25 runs on either yet)

There are more options than the ones you outlined. Neither I nor my guild is even close to the level of Ensidia. We also cleared Naxx25 pretty quickly after we hit 80 and none of us had any sunwell gear because we were a 10 man guild in BC. We weren't carried, because all of us were in that situation. So, that must mean there is a third option. I'd suggest the third option is that Naxx10/25 was tuned incredibly low and was easy to do in blues and greens. There is no reason other than personal preference not to go straight into Naxx when you ding 80.

My raid full cleared Naxx25 pretty quickly and we're far from hardcore. It took us two reset periods (maybe three), I think, but we only raid twice a week for three hours; if we had run more hours a week and weren't so limited on time, we would have cleared it in our first reset. Most of us were in blues and craftables. A couple people had ten man gear already, but not very many. I know I started still wearing my [non-sunwell] Tier 6 because I had been leveling another toon and had no time to find enough good gear to justify losing my set bonus. In my experience, (a) a lot of people think they are not ready for Naxx until they are in full heroic gear/rep epics and thus start much later than "necessary" (assuming they want to raid and (b) a lot more people are finished with Naxx then think they are. The few raids I still know who are running it (assuming not an alt run) absolutely have the gear level for moving into Ulduar, but think they need to stay until every last person has every last blue replaced... which isn't the case. So I think those influence people's progress speeds quite a bit.
