JFK Terminal 5: Arrival - baggage claim, how long does it take?

We're flying into JFK Terminal 5 in May with Aer Lingus (business class) from Dublin.
We will have done the The US Preclearance thing at Dublin Airport so that when we arrive at JFK Terminal 5 we'll be treated as domestic arrivals, avoid immigration queues etc and just be able to pick up our bags and go.
My question is: in people's experience, at JFK Terminal 5, how long from a plane's arrival at the gate does it take for the baggage to arrive at the baggage claim?
Look forward to your answers.

On my one J trip to JFK about 18 months ago the bags came very quickly. It's only a five minute walk from the gate to the baggage hall. Don't think we waited more than ten minutes for bags. Possibly less. It was certainly very efficient as I remember it.

You can never be certain, but in my many experiences in J to JFK its usually very quick, (10 mins). It takes about 5 mins to walk from gate to baggage claim, and ive never waited more than 5-10 mins for the bag to come out

Same here within 5 minutes of reaching the claim area the bags started to appear.
