Yeah, time does vary depending on class, companion, gear and concentration (the OP was watching a show at the same time... seems like he wasn't really concentrating to me)

But I'd be EXTREMELY impressed if someone got it down to under 2 hours.

In a group, maby... but not solo.

Speaking of which... someone should time a run of all the dailies (weeklies) as a 4 man group... because that's usually just a quick slaughter of enemies.

The only way I could think of farming credits this fast is with the Makeb chests, but they are usually farmed by so many people it's hard to get all the chests.
With normal dailies, you can get around 200k-300k/hour, which is roughly what the OP got. Though Makeb + GSI is not really worth the time investment, it's better to switch to an alt and start anew than working on those.

My plan is to do a solo run of dailies I used to do a few months back. This doesn't include H4 in Section X because I don't like wasting time waiting to group. I'll just post the quests, total credits earned on each planet and time required to complete said quests.

Would be nice if a few people did the same so we'd have a more accurate data to use in our calculations.
I see their R2 droid and I grab it. No, you can't have it back, silly rabbit!

QFT

Makeb and GSI are a complete waste of time and basically one long, arduous speeder race.

Each daily area should only take you ~20 minutes to finish.

Anything involving more time isn't worth it. Just run another character through the daily areas if you need the cash.

I've easily made ~3 million credits in a day doing this. I ran the dailies on 3-4 characters. Took me...3 hours I think? Give or take.

If you can do Oricon and Belsavis in twenty minutes, you're my personal hero for sure. Same with Section X, especially Republic side.

Bonus missions included on Oricon BTW.

Well, we have at least someone in this thread claiming it to be possible:
